Whats the point of DH equipping melee?

it's not like the Demon hunter can even use melee attacks, there's no basic melee attack, so the whole point of equipping those items is pointless. if you look at all the primary skills, they're all ranged based.

Impale can be used with a melee weapon, and when hatred runs out, continuing to try and impale defaults to the melee attack. Or if you want you can drop a primary slot and let it default to melee standard attack.

I'm hoping it's a placeholder for when they add a few melee weapon skills. With only 5 classes, variety of options is important - they need to do it.

One melee based hatred generator would be all that was needed to make a somewhat viable melee Demon Hunter on most difficulties I think. You'd still be awfully silly for doing it, but at least you could if you wanted.

You can DH builds without ranged weapons. Grenades doesn't require a ranged weapon and neither does the traps.
