    Default Range Channel [3.5 Alternate Class Feature]

    Range Channel
    Duskblades are known for channeling touch spells through their melee weapons. Some, however, train this ability even more, allowing them to extend their range with their arcane channeling feature.
    The range channel class feature allows the duskblade to stay back if need be, lessening the chance that a chasm or great distance will make them useless. However, this takes away from their ability to stay on the front lines for as long as other duskblades.
    Level: Duskblade 4th.
    Replaces: If you select this class feature, you do not gain armored mage (medium) and your armored mage (heavy shield) feature becomes armored mage (light shield).
    Benefit: You gain the ability to channel touch spells through a ranged weapon attack. This feature does not allow channeling through ray spells.

    This works, I don't see a problem with it.

    I like it!

    Heh, and a feat:
    Ray Channel
    Prerequisites
    • Range Channel class feature
    • Weapon Focus (Rays) feat
    • Arcane Caster level 6th
    Benefits
    You may channel a melee touch attack spell through a ranged touch attack spell, affecting the target with both on a hit.

    Normal
    You cannot channel spells through rays.

    Special
    If a spell launches multiple ranged touch attacks (such as Scorching Ray or through the use of the Split Ray feat), the melee touch attack spell can only be channeled through one of them.

    I imagine fun would ensue.

    Of course, you'd have to get ray spells on your spell list first.

    And nice save on the edit.

    All that I say applies only to myself. You author your own actions and choices. I cannot and will not be responsible for you, nor are you for me, regardless of situation or circumstance.

    I'd probably want to do something like a Duskblade/Spellwarp Sniper to make best use of it.

    I like it. A lot. You did just make the Arcane Archer completely obsolete, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. *shudders*

    What happens if you combine this with a Wandgun? (Link forthcoming; copy paste is being evil; It's one of TheDementedOne's brews..... I think.

    Does the 'Weapon' aspect take priority over the 'Wand' aspect?

    Edit: ha! Got it!

    Magic bows make AAs obsolete.
