Ranged distance

Edam
Back in the dim distant past when melee range was tweaked it was indicated we would also likely see a corresponding increase in the range of ranged weapons especially 20m weapons like wand, focus and shortbow.

(currently a spear using melee fighter can pretty much charge any ranged user give or take a few meters and is only a few steps away from attacking a 20m ranged weapon user without bothering to charge)

Stephen Cheney
It's probably worth looking at increasing standard 20m ranges a bit, given the increase in melee range. But that will likely come with a corresponding increase in creature perception range (which is also currently 20m).
Is this still on the list of things to look at or has this been abandoned.

I think that was just something Stephen was keeping in the back of his mind for upcoming balance passes. Since you brought it back up, I've added a feature request to our database to remind me to give it some consideration when I have some time.
