    Default Jolt

    Is it a spell or a melee attack?

    I'd say it's more of an augmented melee ability.

    It's a spell. It doesn't require a melee weapon like all the other shaman attacks.

    Jolt is a Air based spell, u dont need a weapon to fire this one off, just be very close so it might seem like a melee attack.

    jolt and lightning hammer are both spells, just with melee range.
    Do the herpty derp, please, keep LOSing your healers behind objects so you die.

    Lightning hammer is elemental/augment (melee attack) skill, it requires a weapon and its a weapon+xx air dmg on use, unlike Jolt u can be barehanded and still be able to use.

    requires a weapon, but it is still a spell. Ageless ice, fae hammer, etc. all do not regenerate mana when you use your lightning hammer, and it is effected by spell crit (gains %chance from inquisitor inner focus)

    then u need to look again in ur log, it regenerates mana when the weapon hits, its weapon dmg+x air dmg all the elemental melee skills regen mana on the regen skill that requires a weapon. All justicar skills are also elemental (Life based) doesnt mean they are all spells...

    I actually think this is a bug, isn't it?

    Check again; doesn't regen mana. Justicar life damage melee abilities are melee abilities, as is eruption of life from druid tree.

    Lightning hammer is just misclassified, yes it is a bug, but no it doesn't trigger a 10% mana regen from fae/ageless/etc.

    Digressing from the original post is always fun. BUT, to answer your question, Jolt is a spell, just requires you to be at melee distance.
