Post Characters w/ Ranged ATK or strikes - Melee attacks, too?
Just wanted to make sure I understand how the different types of attack work: the number in the axe represents the attack modifier for Melee attacks only. That much is clear.
If a character has an Order or a Spend Order that allows her/him to perform a Ranged attack or a Ranged strike, is this the only type of attack I can make, or can I also perform Melee attacks?

For example, Yvaalis has an Order that allows her to perform a +4 Ranged strike. Could I also, when it becomes my turn again to perform a decree, make a Melee attack if I'm in the front row because her Ranged strike didn't force her to spend?

Many thanks!

To "attack" with a character is to declare it. Per the rules, this is a Spend Order that generates melee strikes in strength and number as printed in the battleaxe, in sequence.

As long as your character is not spent, and they have a printed ATK value in the battleaxe of their card, they can Spend Order to Attack.

Thanks to your answers to my two other questions, I understand the attack sequence much better now.
This particular question was more about me wondering whether a character that can perform ranged attacks can also perform melee attacks.
Thanks again.

Yes. unless something says you can't, you can do both. Very few things say they can't attack, and most of those can perform Melee Strikes (via riposte or an action or something), they just can't perform the order to attack.
