Melee damage dealer
Basic Information

Melee damage dealer refers to RPG classes that rely on dealing heavy damage through the use of melee weapons.

Melee damage dealers are more at risk for receiving damage due to their close proximity to enemies, and their lack of a shield. Most of their abilities require them to be within a certain distance in order to attack.
