Range determines the targeting distance for a spell or attack. Some spells and attacks have a fixed range, while other spells and attacks have ranges that can be affected by other spells or equipment.

For a list of equipment that increase range, see Category:Range equipment.

From The Vault

Range in the SPECIAL system is the farthest distance (in hexes) that a weapon can shoot. No matter how skilled with that weapon, one can never fire it beyond that distance without the help of an appropriate perk or other special ability.

Guild Wars

From GuildWiki

Skills and attacks all have a certain range. A character trying to attack or activate a skill must be within range of the target before the attack begins or the skill starts to activate. In most cases, issuing such a command from out of range will have the character attempt to move to within range in order to perform the action.

1 Some skills do not have a specific target but affect the entire party. Those skills will actually only affect party members in selection range.

2 Projectile weapon ranges given here assume the target is at the same height as the attacker.

In some game updates, ArenaNet has referred to compass range which is the same as selection range.

Tips

  • For a visual reference in the heat of battle, it is useful to note that the shadow cast by your character is roughly the same size as the innermost testing circle (i.e. adjacent to self).
  • The automatic path-finding mechanisms direct your character closer than the intended ranged action strictly requires to succeed. For example, a player can issue an attack command from out of range and their character will run closer and attack. However, that character will be able to back up slightly and still attack if an attack command is issued from there.
  • Height only factors into range calculations for projectiles, not including those from: spells, staves, or wands.

Disclaimer

The Guild Wars official website as well as the game manual for Guild Wars Factions contain a section on range information measured in feet. That information is inconsistent with the game (most notably that it claims touch range is much shorter than melee range and that flatbow range equals aggro range) and should be disregarded.

Runescape

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about the object used primarily in Cooking. For other uses, see Range (disambiguation).
"Stove" redirects here. For cooking devices that members can build in a stove hotspot in their houses, see Kitchen..
For the combat skill, see Ranged.

A Cooking range is an object used primarily to cook food via the Cooking skill. To cook raw food, simply use it on the range. Any food can be cooked on a range, except for special cases that need to be cooked on a fire using an iron spit. Players can also burn seaweed on a range to turn it into soda ash.

All ranges have lower burn rate than fires, and the range in Lumbridge Castle has an even lower burn rate. However, this does not eliminate the player's risk of burning food, until the player has reached the necessary cooking level not to burn.

There are many other cooking areas that may be used as ranges, but do not have the name of "range". For example, the sulphur vents in the TzHaar City can be used as a range. Members may also build a variety of ranges, ovens and stoves in the kitchen of their house.

Stoves had a long unfixed problem, that is a player would cook the food at the coal gate rather than on the cooking pan. This is not a glitch but a thinking problem. It was finally fixed on 17 September, 2009. Please notice only the cooking range at Lumbridge was free of that problem, but it should not indicate it is superior because characters cook at this range in the "correct" way.

Locations

Ranges are located in many other places than the areas mentioned above. They are marked on a player's minimap by the Range icon. Notable ranges are listed here.

Free-to-play

Pay-to-play

Lumbridge Castle range

The range in Lumbridge Castle has an even lower burn rate, but players need to complete Cook's Assistant quest in order to use it. It is interestingly enough called the Cook-o-Matic 25. If asked for permission to use the range, the Cook of Lumbridge will give you a Cook-o-matic manual, to explain its benefits for low-level food items.

The nearest banks are the Culinaromancer's chest in the cellar (which requires the first part of the Recipe for Disaster quest to be completed) and at the top of Lumbridge Castle.

Sulphur vents

Sulphur vents are small, round holes in volcanic rock from which hot sulphur and gases rise. They are found only in the TzHaar City. They are used to cook food on. One is located relatively close to the bank, making cooking fast. Oddly, although when your player is cooking on it, he/she copies the movement that he/she uses for cooking on a fire but, the vent has a lower burning rate than a normal range!

They can also be used as a safe spot to range or mage a monster from.
