My Warden just acquired the level 2 Utility Daily: Nature's Abundance which creates a Zone which provides Cover in a Burst 3 for me and my allies (AWESOME!). To make sure that I fully understand the mechanics of this skill, I need to know if this skill will provide my allies and me cover from adjacent melee attacks.

Does a Zone providing Cover derived from a power provide cover from adjacent melee attacks? The power states:

You and your allies have cover while within the Zone.

If that's how it's written and there's no errata on it right now, that's how it should work. Cover is cover is cover, no matter if it's ranged or melee.

    \$\begingroup\$ Just to provide an additional little bit of feedback, I think any sort of concealment/cover in D&D has always worked in hand-to-hand or ranged combat, even if a foe is within the area of effect (excepting, of course, mundane visible cover) \$\endgroup\$ – Kyle Willey Feb 24 '12 at 21:31
