This was quite common in my playthrough - it's why you either keep high Mechanics or send your tank ahead in every dungeon.

Yea. I had a Noxious Burst trap kill 2 of my dudes when I carelessly opened without scouting a chest.

 

Bonus: It was a Triple Crown (path of iron) mode.

 

Gonna be awhile before I try that again.

Yeah. Traps are deadly. I found this the hard way when a floor trap in the early levels of the Endless Paths managed to take out my entire lvl. 4 party. They were walking around, minding their business and then FLASH! BAM! ALAKAZAM and Goodbye!

I get paranoid when in dungeons thanks to BG experiences. My main char is a cipher with high stealth and mechanics levels. Typically I send him in first to disable traps (more like collect them) then I send in the cavalry. Pretty classic move in the RPG playbook.

That first one in Heritage Hill is brutal. Have to plan ahead to even see the damn thing.
