    You probably wont like this answer but the easiest way is to see the difference for yourself. Try to compare a phase blade range with that of something like a cryptic axe. Range 2 vs range 5. Do a test match with your friend and try to hit him with both. It is a very noticable difference. A real nice test is to use an attack similar to zeal or fury as an opponent comes close to you.

    Watch a Fury wolf Pvp. I would say 90% of the good ones use Tomb Reaver a range 5 weapon.

    When I made a Fire Claw druid I used a range 5 weapon. Cant tell you exactly off hand what it was but it was alot of fun to use.

    Nitpick: Tomb is range 4.

    For example, a non tele Smiter should never be able to walk up to a continuous shift Fury Druid using a range 4 weapon, and Smite in the first try. You will be stopped couple times due to;

    1) fhr animation, fury can easily hurt you enough to put you in one
    2) block animation
    3) you're dead.

    It can be made even worse if said druid is packing an ebotd great poleaxe rather than a tomb, versus the smiter. The GPA packs range 5, and slightly higher damage (on an exceptionally good one - a perfect eth zod/2x edias tomb has higher max, but lower min. It also swings faster, though). I'm planning on rebuilding my shifter to have the option of switching to ebotdgpa/coa/dungo vs smiters, I'd like to see how well that works.

    watch some of the kiba videos and you can see how important range really is.
