Conflicting attack descriptions - physical vs ranged

Many heroes seem to have conflicting ability descriptions that read , “ ranged physical attack” or “physical ranged attack”. Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t these contradictory? I thought an attack could be ranged or physical , not both. If they in fact can be both, maybe you should call them dual attacks or something, to clear confusion. I have attached images of heroes with the contradicatory descriptions.

  • You are mixing up attack type and attack range (Although there is no official name for the latter, I believe).

    Attack range: Either ranged or melee, no special types.

    Attack type: Physical, spirit, elemental (dark, light, etc.). The notable special one here is Chi which counts as none for the purpose of not being reduced by any skill/passive.

    So they are not at all contradictory, you'll notice every attacking skill has both of these in some form.

    Yup. Ranged attacks can be Physical, Magic, Spirit, Fire, Water, whatever. So can Melee attacks. But Physical attacks won't cause your hero to suffer from on-hit effects, like if the enemy has Burning Skin. Melee attacks will. Flying enemies resist Melee attacks. Kai is weak to Melee attacks.

    Every attack has a range, and a type of damage.

  • Yup. Ranged attacks can be Physical, Magic, Spirit, Fire, Water, whatever. .

    The worst ranged attack is Oven.

    Just equip Pyrex runes...
  • OP, you're confusing Physical and MELEE (pronounced "May-lay")

    Ranged = attacking from a distance
    Melee = attacking up close and personal

    Each of the above can be either a physical, magical, spirit, or elemental attack.

    Fixed this for you.
