Skill and improvement


The trap is made from a strong wooden frame, and a spring that triggers a heavy axe.

The axe trap is a trap used to deal heavy damage.


  • Creation success is influenced by the active large nails.
  • Failure in creating will damage both the large nails and the plank; failure in continuing will damage the item being added.
  • These are extremely difficult to make and continue, at least 55 carpentry is advised,
    • 75 carpentry, 50 ql large nails = 70% creation chance
  • The success rate is highly dependent on the quality of the material.



Axe traps are placed on tree and bush tiles, the traps skill affects the placement chance.


  • The trap's volume is very large; a single trap is too big to fit in a small cart.
  • Improving these is a good way to train carpentry.
  • The axe trap is suspected to be among the most deadly traps, sided closely with the scythe trap
  • Traps affect hostile mobs, enemy kingdom/village players and any animals or mobs of enemy kingdoms on PvP. Traps on PvE will harm hostile creatures but do not harm players or branded animals/mobs.
