    barb. ww is the best melee attack and it's always been this way. I thought grief smiters could tank ww barbs but mcm proved me wrong. (smiter with 55k def, 10k damage, full dr, full block,etc it doens't get better than that)

    For the love of...what does the "10chars" stand for?

    and WW isn't considered melee, but WW barb is better and far more versatile than a zealot if that's what you wanna know..

    10 chars= a post on this forum needs to be at least 10 characters long. He didn't have ten characters, so you just add some numbers or just 10chars in order to post.

    WW is definately melee. It's not because it's better than the rest it shouldn't be considered a melee attack.

    HoD

    Ohh..I was unware of such fact... I just saw people posting "10chars" and thought it had some kind of significance I was unaware of...and it was driving me crazy...thanks.

    WW > Zealot

    I still dont get why ppl dont consider WW melee. First WW requires a range, also it requires AR to hit.

    Indeed. Laugh and squelch.

    I once heard someone say that bowazons are meleechars since they deal "melee damage". Beat that ^^

    but it's impossible to deal dmg without receiving at the very least a full blow...weather it's blocked or not...you ALLWAYS have the upper hand...

    To sum up the argument about WW not being melee:

    WW = best melee skill in this game

    why?
    moving while attacking, very fast attack speed, impossible to dodge if done right and it can be used while wielding 2 weapons
    therefor, many people sugest that WW is not melee.
    but it very much is

    then why isn't charge considered melee? or smite?

    you can't "shoot" other chars neither...you have to hit the oponent at melee range...
    off course you can charge lock from the other side of the screen while completely desynched...or smite lock someone before they have the chance to touch you.... but you have to hit them at melee range...so it's melee right? :rolleyes:

    oh, please, you missunderstand me
    im not for WW being ranged a attack, im against it
    the reasons i posted are why they consider it non-melee....should have posted it in there :rolleyes:

    anyways, YES Melee attacks require you to be NEAR and this goes for WW too, and smite btw

    Go to chaos sanctuary. Get cursed by iron maiden. Charge/smite/ww. Ask yourself if blizzard consider charge/smite/ww as ranged attacks.

    just an OT question... would a BvC barb be able to kill a ladder smiter with top notch gear, such as grief/exile or phoenix etc? Im trying to make one suitable for pub dueling

    Thanks
