Tell Morello you need voice-recognition software. If he refuses, the code phrase is "Delta Force."

To a programmer like me, the functionality is all about whether it has a missile or not. Doing damage on the cast frame is melee, just a long range melee (to me). The code he uses is melee attack code. I think designers agree with you though

Thresh is ranged. The range of auto attacks is what determines whether or not they're ranged or melee. Any range above 150 is ranged if I'm not mistaken.

I'm glad there aren't a lot of champions like that, because it's honestly really confusing <<

What about kayle? She too deals dmg on attack animation instead of creating a projectile.

The way his attacks work are more like a long range melee attack than a ranged attack without a projectile, because the timing of the damage does not at all take distance to target into account. So for last hitting timing, he's more melee-like.

As far as the items that work with him? ranged.
So will Hurricane actually start spreading the on hit effect from his E to multiple targets, because as far as I know it does not currently. I'd like for either the melee execute to apply or the ranged spread, whichever Thresh is considered.

Isn't Kayle the same thing? And can you tell us if Kayle support would get the execute while her E is active?
