Ranged Powertech?

If I went Advanced Prototype for DPS would I be doing ranged attacking or still melee? I like ranged classes better so should I go Merc or is AP ranged? Any reply is appreciated.

You're melee.

You've got a few attacks at 30m range, but not enough to do heavy damage. No matter what spec you use, you still have to get up close and personal to be effective as a powertech.

If you like the idea of staying outside 10m, Merc is really the way you want to go.

With the pyro tree you have to be within 10m or so with the prototype you need to be in melee even more often then the pyro.

I love the Powertech pyro though. Enough damage to assist or finish off at a range and crazy damage on anyone who is silly enough to get close to you.

Thanks guys. Still trying to decide. Pyro sounds fun. I guess I just have to try it out. :]
