Deadly Reach is a Primary Monk skill unlocked at Level 3. It projects lines of force in front of the Monk, dealing damage to everything in its (short) range. Every third hit extends its range.

Skill Design[edit]

During the beta, all the skills previously known as combos were simplified down so much that only three of them (Fists of Thunder, Deadly Reach, and Crippling Wave) still contain any semblance of combo functionality. These three skills now provide simply an additional effect on every third strike, while the others (Way of the Hundred Fists, Exploding Palm, and Sweeping Wind) now have a single function on every strike. Combos previously consisted of: the normal spell attack on the first strike; a stronger attack on the second; and on the third, an even stronger attack coupled with an additional effect.

Development[edit]

Deadly Reach was first seen at the July 2011 Press Event (when skill tiers were removed), as a level 5 skill. Unfortunately, no information about the skill's function was then available.

Beta[edit]

The beta started in September 2011, and Deadly Reach became a level 4 skill. The skill system was once again overhauled for the Beta Patch 13 in February 2012, and Deadly Reach was classified as a Primary skill and moved to level 3. For Beta Patch 14, it was buffed a bit.
