    Question Reach

    Is it just me, or have other players felt that the halforc race has a lower range or reach with a 2H melee weapon? I find that you have to get more up close and personal with the creature than I had to on my human barb. Or has it got something to do with the 2HF feat? or is it just their short stumpy arms?

    it's a bit odd to explain, but it's an optical illusion. Because the hOrc has a physically larger model than a human, the shoulders are roughly 50% wider than your average human. However, the models in DDO all use the same center point; that is, the hitbox that the client and server use to determine your proximity to an enemy for both taking and receiving die rolls, is the same center point for humans and hOrcs and halflings and warforged. Because your character is wider, it appears that you have to occupy a space slightly closer than your human in order to get and receive die rolls.

    I thought maybe it was just an optical illusion or something to do with the size of the player but you confirmed this. Thank you.
