Question about the penalty for using a ranged weapon in melee (in General)
May 13 2007 5:06 AM EDT
Ok, the Wiki says this:
"Minions using Bows during Melee combat will suffer a penalty of 60% to DX and plus to-hit (PTH). "
I'm not questioning the dex penalty, but is that correct about the penalty to PTH? I don't recall that being the case. But I am getting old.
Is that correct or is the Wiki wrong?
From the most recent ranged changes back in Sept.
"Penalties to ranged weapons used during melee combat have been adjusted. Slings have 80% penalty; xbows have 40% penalty. Bows are unchanged at 60% penalty."
doesn't say anything about PTH but that doesn't guarantee it doesn't happen.

Not sure about the PtH, but Elbs in Melee also get a 60% Damage Reduction.

Yeah, I knew about the dex penalty, but I don't recall there ever being a PTH penalty.

As far as I can remember it was both a penalty to DX and to to-hit.
