    I am wondering, since Lava Traps are not that easy to get, do they sink like regular traps or are they "safe" to use ?

    Because if they sink just as well, why would one use them given the high rate that traps usually are lost to sinking ?

    From my experience during testing:
    yes, they sink.

    You get all kind of stuff in it, like normal crabs and lubster. So they sink very fast without a word.

    Well, then, I can see how hardly they will be used since it takes quite an effort to get them...

    They should be coded to last quite longer than regular traps, IMHO.
