The correct persistent aura effect for this spell is http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/spell.html?spell=8949
Correct thickener component.

Arcane Thickener is not correct. Use Conjuring thickener.
Now researchable

the spell info when I inspect this spell says recast time: 60.00 mins, which is incorrect. I found by using it, the recast is .60 secs or 1.00 min. Please correct it on this site, the info is missleading.

Their recast time is listed in seconds, so they are correct. Not to mention, .60 seconds is vastly different than 60 seconds.

Works for Soloing Snare Immune Mobs

When soloing in the basements of HoH, I set this trap on my run-path. Cast my slowest casting DoT on a Valorian Sentry to get aggro and then path him over the trap for an extra "cast-free" DoT. Sic pet and then DoT down with Horror and BoT with pet following. Saves mana and kite time.

Has also worked nice in LDoN as long as mobs come single, so consider that before setting trap. Place it just away from the door and as mob comes through, it pick up the DoT. Sometimes I FD as mob comes, just to make sure I don't take aggro from the puller.
This trap hits ONE mob.

It's a misconception that this spell does damage to each mob that wanders too close, that's simply not true. If you look at the spell the AE (Area of Effect) is 0. It hits only 1 mob. none the less a decent dot especially since it's not resistible.

But don't you see? The beneficial auras only hit one PC *at a time*, but they continue to hit every PC who comes within range for as long as the aura itself persists. I've even noticed that if you explicitly click off the aura effect in your Songs window while you're in range of the aura caster, the aura effect won't come back for you until you move apart and then come back within range.

So I could easily imagine that the necro aura is one that puts a dot on every mob as the mob passes within range. And if that's how it works, you can continue to reapply the dot by moving out of range and letting it catch up again. I don't have a necro but I'd think someone who does could check this theory out pretty easily and report back?

These are soloable by a 70 mage. Convicted air pet with full set of toys. Debuffed to pull, sent pet, nuked and healed pet as needed. Was about 25% mana when it died. Did all of them that way. These guys are social so pull them away from the others paths.
Just got it

I just got the spell rune of death the quest in iteslf is eazy kill 4 mobs *winter spring etc..* they hit about 400 max bring a friend or 2 they arnt to hard.. dont recomend solo they hit fialy fast but I did manage to tap tank ~7k hp buffed nec* the spell in iself creates a rune on the ground witch curses the first mob I engage *futher testing requierd* then despawned the "trap" doesnt stay spawned for long .. id say 4 min or so.. I didnt pay allot of attention to it .. the dps it added was neglagable to a 70 nec.. but on the same token its only a lvl 55 spell .. what do you expect .. lookgin forward to getting the higher end ones

edit: you can only have one trap up at a time
futher edit : It only dot's once it seems to assist you after a few seconds of combat

Not too shabby of a spell at all, the dot is a 200 per tick dot that lasts for 7 ticks... 1400 dmg to each mob that wonders too close. Just look it up under the effect, easy enough to figure out.
If you want to know a girls faults, praise them to their girlfriends.
