    Longest Melee Weapon?

    • What exactly is the longest reach of a melee weapon?
    • Which weapons can get that reach?
    • About how far on the screen is this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Range of all melee weapons can be given a number from 1 to 5. 1 includes daggers and such, 5 includes giant threshers, great poleaxes and several spears. Not sure how far on the screen it is, but i know my merc with a range 5 polearm can reach over my skeles and hit stuff even if its 2 skeles deep.
    Look on the Dii.net items page for ranges and details off all weapons (its all correct now thats to your lovely RTB)

    There are five types of 'range 5' weapons:

    Halberd
    War Scythe
    Brandistock
    Spetum
    Pike

    and their exceptional/elite equivalents.


    How far is it? Well, you can comfortably stand behing a tanking merc/minion and poke an enemy.



    Among the monsters, Frenzytaurs have the longest melee reach.

    Kool69, for some reason, your avatar is vaguely...disturbing to me.

    Can't really put my finger on why, though.
