The most fun part of the game is building a really good dungeon and see other thieves fail. But it is also the hardest part of the game. Therefore I like to help beginners by showing them some good positions for their traps, starting with the buzzsaw.

 

There is also a really good Trap Guide for beginners from Liammago.
 
In my opinion, the buzzsaw is one of the most effective traps, if you know how to use it. So let's take a look at some good locations:
 

Jump - Red dotted line

Slide - Green line

 
Max Jump:

Dead End:

Perfect Jump Pit:

Slide Corner Jump of Faith:

Saw SuperJump: (by Delekates)

Removed Jumps in v2.1:

I hope this small guide will help some beginners.

If somebody has more locations i will update that post.

 

Edit 1: Added Pit Jump

Edit 2: Added jumps as dotted lines 

Edit 3: Added Jump of Faith

Edit 4: Added Superjump of Faith

Edit 5: Added Versions of LowJump and Superjump of Faith

Edit 6: Updated for version 2.1

Edit 7: Added Slide CornerJump and replaced images of old jumps with links

Edit 8: Correction of Slide Corner Jump and added SawSuperJump

Maybe add a pit jump where you have to jump down and miss a saw?
Other than that, this seems like a really good guide. Welcome to the forums, this was a good way to make a debut :)
Edit: There is also another one, where you have to slide as close as you can to the saw and jump away, but have to do it quickly because a fly is chasing you. Hard to describe, though, and it does have another trap involved, so I guess it's not needed above

There is no pleasure more complex than that of thought and we surrendered ourselves to it.

I like it! The most common use seems to be the 'Max Jump', but some of these other tricks could help a bit more. I think the 'dead end' is the most unforgiving, and it could work great while wall jumping, because if they wall jump to the wrong side...

Splat.

can you draw the path in those images?

like a red dotted line, just to clarify to everyone the correct path and when to jump

Excellent illustrations!

 

You know, it would be pretty cool if someone made a simple tool based on the above like this Clash of Clans builder

This is amazing, and that superjump buzzsaw have got to be my favorite. I have used a whole lot of these and they're really awesome at forcing your raiders to quit (gives you their skulls but they leave with zero stars and none of your gem/gold)

 

Thank you!

 

Oh and amazing illustrations! What did you use to make those? It'd be awesome if it becomes the default "How to use so and so Trap" posts. Like, officially.

Love the illustrations. I've come across many of those before (not the leap of faith one though...) and know how to beat them but the diagram is really helpful when trying to explain to someone else. I agree with Robbed Prince, this should become the "How To" look.

Thanks. I used a Vector Image Editor to get some high-res versions of the ingame objects. And afterwards ordered them with OmniGraffle for Mac OS.

 

Originally i planned to extend this Thread with more Traps, but since there are currently so many threads about traps, jumps and bases i won't do this. 

Instead I plan to program a web based editor for images like these I did, but this will take me some days or most likely weeks (depends on my free time). Until then, guide-writers could contact me for some help with images.

Great Illustrations! I could use your expertise if you want to illustrate anything in the guide I wrote (http://forum.kingoft...n-creation-101/). Or the supplemental jump one (http://forum.kingoft...roving-agility/).

 

All the buzz saw positions are great!

 

I've got one to contribute:

b3.jpg

In this layout, you can put it on left side of the center platform, and the door on the upper left.

This will require a long jump to get past the buzzsaw. Any other jump will hit the buzzsaw and it also turns the lower left into a pit you can't get out of unless the buzzsaw is disabled.

You should also add the harder (more precise) variation of the pit jump.

The saw also can create a vortex Seeker Bird trap.

Great guide. Here is a variation on the super jump buzzsaw. I think it's harder than the one in your guide.
