    Default Being Melee dps is......

    not fun at all, it seems like you made almost every boss with only ranged dps in mind. For example the last boss in T1 Latern Hook, thats the worst fight for melee evar!, fire crap drops on the ground, cleaves from front to back, jumps around to ranged makign us run around with our thumn up our ***. Trion, you would have to redo a load of boss fights so i came to the conclusion that you wont. So i guess to all you warriors out there, just reroll a ranged, this game isnt meant to for warrior dps. Only place for melee is being the tank.

    go ranged. it's too change it up, some fights are just easier ranged you should have more than one spec anyway and if you dont have a ranged set-up then your a real crutch to a party

    Which is a flaw and should be addressed.

    I don't think it's a flaw, I think it's intended. One of the shining achievements of this game is that they support multiple play-styles so that a character is less likely to be excluded based on class alone.

    lol I love my melee cleric spec. Usually topping the charts in dps or close too it. If you can't avoid the cleave...then stay range.

    This.

    Anyone who disagrees, please explain how the permanent advantage of being able to deal damage at any point within 30 meters of your target is not innately better than having to be right next to your target at all times to deal damage.

    I find it strange that you say the game supports multiple play styles, then say you have to use ranged on bosses.

    Seems counter intuitive.

    Actually there are quite a few bosses where i stick everyone in melee range so that the group moves as a pack. When there are aoe areas spawned on our feet we all move away from it together rather than the aoe spawning randomly around the boss area. This is just one example where melee are favored.

    ADAPT!!

    Yes, being a mage or rogue is much easier, but back when I was doing T1 I made a ranged warrior spec that did about 100 less dps than my melee counterpart. Thats why we can have more than one soul at the ready.

    God.......enjoy the challege dont be a baby.

    You don't have to used ranged on all bosses, but because we have ranged options it means that bosses that give a strong advantage to range don't exclude any one class.
