What is the range, in yards, in which you can perform a melee attack? Not including, of course, stuff like Deadly Reach.

(it is my understanding that weapon type does not matter)

Do you mean a non-skill, basic attack? – user9983 May 18 '12 at 18:30
Maybe click a static enemy like the Crows Nest thing, and screenshot how far away you are when you stop and swing your weapon, then compare screenshot with this awesome image? – Rachel May 18 '12 at 18:40
@OrigamiRobot well not necessarily, I'm guessing most melee attack skills share the same range as non-skill melee attacks. – Oak May 19 '12 at 8:20

I am almost certain the range is 8 yards. I remember reading this somewhere, and upon testing this and comparing the range of melee to that of skills with know range, I found it to be accurate. I further compared it to the image in the post referred to by the question, and found that my test results matched the 8 yard mark on that image very closely.
