Skill type. Ranged attacks are attacks performed with ranged weapons - bows, spears, staves and wands. Ranged attacks can refer to either an auto attack made with a ranged weapon or a specific type of skill performed with ranged weapons.
  • A ranged attack is performed whenever a projectile is fired, thrown or discharged from a character's ranged weapon.
  • The range of these attacks depends on the weapon used.
  • As a skill type, ranged attacks can be performed with any type of ranged weapon.
    • Most ranged attack skills have the same damage type and range as the weapon used to perform them, with a few exceptions like half range attacks.
  • Attacking spirits from Binding rituals use ranged attack skills with the same range as longbows and flatbows, and are affected by height.
  • Bone Fiends use ranged attacks with half the range of a longbow or flatbow, and are also affected by height.
Bug Bug.Even with a clear line of sight, all spirit (e.g. Anguish), bow, and spear attack skills have a chance of not activating when standing on a bridge or stairway and on some inclines or overpasses
