"The power bonus of both weapon and base are added together and then applied to the total power of the trap, increasing its power."
The power bonus attribute on certain bases, weapons, and charms increases the power of a trap. The power bonus from the base, weapon, and optional charm are first added together, and is then applied to the combined power of a trap. Fractional power is rounded up to the nearest whole number.
Using the Swiss Army Mouse Trap, Stone Base, and Power Charm as an example:
|Swiss Army Mouse Trap||1,200||2%|
|Total Power: 1,470 * 113% = 1,662|
The maximum power bonus attainable is 73%, achieved by pairing the event-only Birthday Party Piñata Bonanza (35%) with either the Tiki or Tribal Base (18%) and an Ultimate Power Charm (20%). Without implementing limited edition or event-only trap component, the highest power bonus possible is 58%, using the Sandstorm MonstroBot or Zurreal's Folly (20%), the Tribal Base (18%), and an Ultimate Power Charm (20%). However, please note that while these setups yield the highest power bonuses in the game, they do not provide the highest possible power. It is also possible to use the Tower Amplifier to increase power by up to another 75%, although this is only useful with Tactical traps.
