Powers

Traps DroppedAoEDebuffDefense.png Acid Mortar

You can place a small Mortar on the ground. If an enemy passes nearby, the Mortar will fire an Acid grenade at the target. The grenade will explode in a small shower of acid on impact. This acid eats through armor, causing minor damage over time. It reduces the target's Defense as well as their Damage Resistance. The mortar will last up to 60 seconds and will fire up to 10 grenades. It can be destroyed by your foes.

Traps AoEMassiveDamage.png Detonator

A good Mastermind always plans ahead, but a great one knows when to make a strategic sacrifice. You have equipped all your henchmen with explosives. When the time is right, select a henchman and set off the Detonator. Undead and Robots are easily rigged and will blow up instantly, devastating nearby enemies. Ninjas, Soldiers and other free thinking henchmen will try to place the explosive on the ground and get away. But you know... the fuse is short.

Traps DroppedAoEBuffDefense.png Force Field Generator

You can build a Force Field Generator Drone. It will generate a Dispersion Bubble that gives all nearby allies increased Defense against all attacks including Psionic. The Dispersion Bubble also protects allies from Immobilization, Disorient and Hold effects. The Drone will follow you, can be buffed and healed or even destroyed. However, it is not a Henchman and cannot be given commands. Limited to one Force Field Generator.

Traps DroppedAoEDebuffAttackSpeed.png Poison Trap

You can build a Poison Gas Trap on the ground. Any foes that pass near the Poison Trap will cause it to detonate and release its toxic vapors. The poison is a very noxious gas, and any foes in the affected area may start to choke or even vomit. Affected foes Regeneration rate and attack rate will be reduced as well. The trap is almost impossible to detect, but it is fragile and may be set off by an enemy's explosion. Even if destroyed, the trap will detonate.

Traps DroppedAoEDebuffDamage.png Seeker Drones

You create two Seeker Drones. These Seeker Drones follow you until they detect an enemy and then they will zero in on their targets and detonate on impact. The small explosive flash of energy does on minor damage, but the concussion can weaken foes. Affected targets will have reduced Damage, chance to hit, and Perception and may even be Disoriented for a short while. You can only ever have two Seeker Drones out at one time and they can be destroyed by your foes.
