Hi I'm a newb to D&D and for the last couple of days I've been reading throught the red box dm's book and in the section entiteled Attacks it mentions about how when you use a melle basic attack and you hit the damage is 1[W]+Strenght modifier. So I have two questions, 1. Does every character class, like a rogue or wizard use their strenght modifier for a melle basic attack or would they use something like their dexterity? 2. In the players handbook in the red box there is a section which describes attacking an it tells you to write down in the attack bonus section of your character sheet (if your playing rogue) +7 attack bonus, dagger, damage= 1d4+4. Im just wondering when would you use this as most of the rogues powers, including melle basic attack, either replace the dice you roll to something like 1d6 or replace the modifier to something like strength. Do you ever actually roll an attack which deals 1d4+4 damage? Any advice would be helpful.
