Ranged weapons in melee (in General)
"The penalties to ranged weapons used during melee combat are 80% for Slings, 60% for Bows and 40% for Crossbows."
Is that a penalty to PTH, damage, or both? I have a $48m SOD, a $34m VB, and a $30m Bone.... wondering which to use.

And Damage? Wow. Never knew that...
Couldn't be damage I don't think... my ELB used to do the same amount of damage in range and in melee

In my many fights with TEoD when he was using Platypus I noticed the damage was much less in melee then in missile rounds.
IE, vs my 410 AC tank he was doing upwards of 700k a hit, but in melee he did at most 300k or so.
Also, speaking with Mikel, he confirmed the damage with a bow in melee is much less then in missile. It would be insane if elbs in melee did millions of damage. Just get a TOA and who cares are the PTH and dex penalty.

Ranger is correct I consistently get less than half the damage when fighting (the same minion) in melee

I can confirm that to be the case too, I've seen over half the damage against the same minion once I hit melee....
