I just noticed that both Necrotic Grasp and Dark Path can hit from further away than their range indicator indicates, although both lack some functionality at this range (Necrotic Grasp's auto-attack does not trigger and Dark Path does not track the target). Is this something common to all projectiles? --Ki 23:56, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

I suppose the range indicates the distance where you can activate the skill, this prevents people simply kiting out of range to avoid attacks that hit multiple times.--Relyk 23:59, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Arrows at least (probably anything that has an arc of flight) go slightly farther than their max range indicates; bullets just stop dead at the end of their range, as far as I know. Some projectiles that "explode" at the end, such as Explosive Shot, also have slightly higher effective range due to the center of the explosion being at the end of the flight.
