    This would be a neat enchantment, as long as it isn't overpowered.  According to the wiki, the current range is 4.5 to 6 blocks depending on the version and input methods.   It might be reasonable if each level increased the range by 2 blocks.  So level 3 would double or more than double your breaking range.

    Good Idea 

    But not for swords etc., the hackers Will use IT with reach hacks...

    ClayGoddessSari: you’re right, it shouldn’t be OP but it should be enough to be a helpful and reliable enchantment. Double the distance does sound good to me.

    Quinten van Bruggen: that’s my thought process with this as well. This is a great addition for mining/log breaking, but it should have absolutely no impact on melee performance & range. This is strictly for block breaking.

    Mobius 762: I originally proposed that you could break the largest spruce trees without building, though I understand that may be a little too OP. But, what you’re suggesting really doesn’t give much of an advantage, and I don’t think people would really ever go for the enchantment at that point. When I thought of this, I figured it should be at least 3 levels and 1 block per level, though I would be happy with Mojang adopting this idea in any state (and how the see fit). Thanks for supporting my idea though, as well as every person who has voted and commented thus far and anyone who will be voting and commenting in the future. I was not expecting the enthusiasm I have gotten from the Minecraft community on Reddit and on here.

    I agree that you should not be able to enchant swords with it, even though that would be cool, because in PvP, you could hold the other player so far away, that he couldn't even hit you once

    But: The enchantment should have an effect on the reach of every tool, including swords! That way, you can get yourself awesome swords with e. g. the /give command. That could also be used for fun minigames
