    How many yards?

    I only have a simple question:

    How many yards is the entire screen in-game?

    That would help to know the real size of the AOE skills.

    That depends on your monitor resolution.

    In relation to the character scale though, a yard is about a foot (or a third of a meter) :p

    Yeah it is kinda silly a yard is about a foot. A yard is supposed to be 3 feet. With the current yard scale in game, the average height of characters is like 15 feet tall..lmao

    Some of the forum goers around here have tossed around this issue. You can find more info in this thread:

    Best Estimation of Screen Length

    Important to keep in mind is the camera angle and perspective. The effect makes it so you can see a further distance above your character (towards the top of the screen) than below your character.
