Hail of cannonballs

1, Will this skill effected by spooky? Is this skill power based or weapon based?

Hi Michael, welcome to the message boards.
From my understanding, Spooky will boost it as it is magical damage and I am not positive on the Walk in Shadows boost. I will wait for other more understanding of the game mechanics than what I have. If my first answer is incorrect that by all means, message board family, educate me also. Sorry for the bit of vagueness but I don't like to answer emphatically if I am not totally sure.

Ratbeard previously posted that Agility will affect damage as they fall but not when they're triggered later. Spooky improves damage on both. Will affects neither detonation.
I don't know if Hidden affects initial drop damage, but it won't affect secondary detonation. Traps are always hidden from the victim, even if we can see them, our units cannot.

Old Scratch gets double damage when My Thief makes him hidden with Black Fog. That's a staffy weapon.
My musketeer gets it when He's hidden. That's a shooty weapon.
Bonnie Anne doesn't seem to get double damage when she Scatterblasts from hidden. but at least the enemy doesn't seem to try getting out of her blast AoE.

Wrong. Hail of Cannonballs deals magical energy damage. The bombs lay on the floor deal physical damage. The power is boosted by Spooky and Agility, Will plays no role.

2. All attacks except Witchdoctor powers (excluding the Mojo Blade series) are boosted by hidden. AoE attacks like Hail of Cannonballs or Inferno Shot will only deal double damage to one of the targeted units.

1. In the big update, MB/AQ , all musketeer powers damage was supposed to have been changed to magical damage. If bomb traps still do physical damage, it should be reported.
2. Maybe the AoE target that we Left-click on to activate the power (while hidden) gets the hidden attack bonus damage? I know that's sometimes the only one who can get reaction epic triggers.
