So either the skill shot has to be easily avoidable, or the summoned creature should be debuffed, as this is rather ridiculous.
Q lasts a very short time. i'm also not sure of whether or not it is supposed to have some sort of set-down delay like caitlin and nidalee's traps have. please clarify some of these details.
Well, until I looked it up just now, I didn't even know their traps had a delay. I definitely didn't intend for there to be a delay with Q. And I'm not entirely sure how the duration of the effect being only 3 seconds is a bad thing (your wording kind of implies you think it is). The traps last indefinitely, like Shaco's boxes.
By level 5 (the earliest you can get rank 3 for Shadow Hunter), if you cant deal enough damage to kill something with 450 health fairly quickly, you're probably capable of escaping it. I will consider the math again though, to see if there is a real problem or not.
