    Default The long or short of it.

    Where can I find out what spells are melee/caster ranged or melee/caster melee etc?

    And on the million to one of chance is Geyser a melee ranged spell? (Cold blooded, Shaman tree).

    Rift is the Rachael of Bladerunner, we can never know exactly how long it will live, but it will burn so bright whilst it does.

    the tooltip in-game will tell you

    if it says that it requires a weapon then its a weapon attack, if not then its a spell.

    gyeser is 30m range and its a heal so there is absolutely no way it can be a weapon attack because there is no such thing as a 30m ranged weapon attack

    the only options are

    30m range spell
    5m (melee) range spell
    5m (melee) range attack


    notable examples:
    • justicar strike of judgement is a melee range weapon attack not a spell even though it deals life damage.
    • shaman jolt is a melee range spell not a weapon attack (unless it was changed in 1.11).

    None of the cleric abilities use weapon DPS so they might all be considered spells now. Then again I'm pretty sure Justicar abilities can still be blocked.
