    I'm almost inclined to say that the AE auto range is based around the target you hit, and not where you are standing. I have no testing to back it up though. I know ranged auto works that way but that mechanic is newer.

    I think your correct Drums. When they put in ranged AoE, I think they change the mechanic to work like that.

    I noticed on boars tonight with it procing 100% of the tiem, I was catching boars out of my actuall attack range, BUT within range of the boar I had just hit.

    If attack range is {--->} Me--->boar--->other boars on more then one ocasion, its likes it was causing a pulse attack with my target being 0,0,0,0.

    No one can really stack flurry. If anyone is using flurry red adorns or using flurry as a decider for gear they're doing it wrong. Just imagine the 3 flurry is actually 9 multi attack and call it a day.

    range aoe auto works from the mob you hit and melee aoe auto use to work from where you stand. it did work that way back when range aoe auto first rolled out because i went on test and tested it over and over because i was debating if i should start playing my assassin like a ranger and i would have if they had not changed auto to both weaps instead of just primary.

    Yes, it is based off 5m radius of the primary target you are attacking with both bow/melee weapons. This was actually changed permanently when DoV launched.

    just did some quick testing with training dummies arranged in a single file line. Melee AE auto seems to be about an 8m range from yourself, not your target.

    -standing at max range (5m) from the first dummy, i could not AE the next one 9-10m away from me (about 4-5m from my target dummy)
    -standing at about 3-4m from the first dummy, i did AE the next one 7-8m away from me but not the next one in line about 4m beyond the 2nd one
    -standing at max range from the 2nd dummy, i could directly attack the 2nd dummy and AE would hit the first dummy, but not the 3rd dummy.
    -standing almost on top of the 1st dummy, i could target the 2nd and AE all 3. I seemed to be about 8m from the 3rd dummy at this point.

    admittedly i could have been more precise when spacing them, but it still seems clear that it isnt hitting a radius around the target but rather a certain range from the player that is >5m.
