Both can be useful, but I would believe the big determinant here is whether you want to be front or back-line.
Yeah, I used to be that witch elf named Fun

I've found bouncing spec SH to be both fun and really useful to our warbands in orvr. So much utility. Something like 6k armor on a few of the guys I've talked to as well. Go put those WLs in their place!

A bit late but just to let future readers know: if you play squig you will play melee anyway.

Range SH is grossly underperforming. The most you can be is a single target debuffer and most organised WBs will have no need for you. In pugs you will be decent at best and in solo almost anything kills you. Some say the build starts to be OK after rr70 but that is a long grind just to be rewarded with mediocrity.

A sad state as i really prefer range SH but there’s no denying melee is the stronger option.

Translation: I love this class, and have invested an inappropriate amount of time and gold to make it decent. If you think that my ultra-expensive SH is bad is cause you have not see me killing annihilator geared characters.

Btw, this same mediocrity in RDPS and functionality in MDPS happens with the Shadow Warrior. Especially when you compare SH and SW with the others RDPSs of the game, they just don't worth the slot in a warband, and make most of the ranks of PUGs warbands, cause no organized one wants to miss a slot. Simple as that, they are better going with BW/Sorc or AoE engi/magus.

If choppa lose his pull and chop fasta there will be zero reason to even roll choppa. Melee SH has insane table of utilities from all mdps classes acros the board and can crit up to 1,5k on softies. He can pounce, he can charge, he can increase cooldowns, he can self heal, he can knockdown and disarm, he is tanky as hell, He can self punt with AOE snare and even he loose his squig armor he can use AOE knockback at bridges and cliffs which is lethal if lava is around :D

Choppa if fully ofensive has higher dmg outpoot, has melee inc heal debuff(SH has only ranged), and has better AOE due to pull and chop fasta witch decrease cooldowns for all party members by 5s.

I would vote for SH because if you get bored of being pouncing giant angry meatball, You can always spec for range and nuke ppl from distance.
