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?

  • 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?

  • @OrigamiRobot well not necessarily, I'm guessing most melee attack skills share the same range as non-skill melee attacks.

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.
