    As far as I know, all NB abilities are counted as melee. I vaguely remember some patch notes talking about this in reference to the Sin serrated blades talent.

    It is not spell dmg. It will proc off essences that say "physical attacks".

    I believe they are non-physical attacks, not spells.

    hmm i had tested spell proc ones and never noticed them proc'ing. maybe i was just blind, lol.

    or perhaps i tried a trinket and not an essence. I remember thinking it would be great if one of the spell proc effects would work but then being disappointed it did not.

    Nightblade abilities are physical abilities that deal non-physical damage. This means they trigger trinkets/essences that require physical attacks. They do not trigger trinkets/essences that require damaging spells.

    Madgelo, I am inclined to agree with you. It makes sense that they would proc both types of essences.
    Since it looks like all abilities have wep dmg+element dmg, it looks like we can choose either.

    Unless, spell essences proc off of wep enchant procs?? I'm guessing no.

    Ohh, I see. Sorry. xD Yeah, the essences work in weird ways. Not sure if its intended or not. I remember having an essence that had a chance to heal me for 200 when I heal and a weapon proc that gave me 90 spell power on my heals. Both were almost always up when I played as a Inquisitor due to the Vex healing me. I guess the essences are very broad on the way they work.
