|Examine||Used to trap bovimastyx. (Tier 1)|
A tangle gum trap is a trap used in dungeoneering to trap and kill mastyxes. To make one, a player must use a knife on a set of tangle gum branches with level 3 fletching. Then, the trap can be set on the floor of a room containing a mastyx to have a chance of catching it. This trap can be used to catch any tier of mastyx, despite it being tier 1; the ability to catch higher tiered mastyx is dependent on the player's Hunter level rather than the type of trap used. However, a tangle gum trap likely has less of a chance of successfully catching mastyx than higher tiered traps.
