Just checking to see if I've been playing this wrong.

Heavy Lift: Replaces attacks: touch; move 1 adjacent Small, Medium, or Large ally to any space adjacent to this character. This move does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Melee Reach 2: When attacking, this character treats enemies up to 2 squares away as adjacent.

Given that Heavy Lift replaces attacks, does that mean that a large T1 Series Bulk Loader droid can lift an ally from 2 squares away to 2 squares opposite its base, for a total of 6 squares of movement?

Or since Heavy lift replaces attacks, does it not constitute attacking and does not apply Melee Reach 2. Therefore it can only move an ally 4 squares?

This is correct. When you Lightsaber Sweep with Melee Reach 2, you attack 2 squares away. Don't see why it would be any different

Maybe it would be different because LS Sweep actually involves attacking, while Heavy Lift does not, and Melee Reach 2 only treats characters 2 squares away as adjacent when attacking?

I'd say you can't use MR2 with Heavy Lift.

Thanks for the clarification! Makes Levitation that much stronger of an ability.
