The ranged basic attack is an at-will power available to all characters. A ranged basic attack simply deals weapon damage on a hit. It is Dexterity-based, or Strength-based when using a heavy thrown weapon. It is typically performed as part of a basic attack action.[PH:287][RC:239][HotFL:26]

The warlock power eldritch blast counts as a ranged basic attack. Eldritch blast can be used any time a ranged basic attack could be used, and is affected by modifiers to ranged basic attacks.[PH:132][U:W]

In addition, certain other powers can be used as ranged basic attacks.
