Beginner Question - Impale

Posts: 5
Sorry if this is a dumb question (I'm sure it is).

The Impale ability...do I need to have a sword/dagger equipped?

How exactly is it supposed to work?

Thanks :/

sure don't, it works with your bow

Nope, no need to have a dagger equipped, just have your bow/1handers/xbow ready and you're good to go with the skill

First of all youre a RANGED class.
you throw knifes with that ability, dps based on your weapon. just use your bow/Cb.

Would the ability still work with any melee weapon?

It works with melee weapons. I ran around using impale with a sabre and a shield equipped. I don't know if it has to be a bladed weapon, but I really doubt it. Unfortunately, DH doesn't have any melee skills that gen hatred, so the usefulness of this quirk is debatable (maybe grenades still work if you have a melee weapon equipped).

so skills like chakram also work with melee weapons? and the only problem is the hate generation? Can you throw granates with melee weapons?

if you wanna dual wield or something meele heavy play barb or monk.

Well you would still use ranged skills and the damage is higher

Thanks, that's all I needed to hear.

I guess I don't find it a very strong use at this point.
