In 9.2.5, Blizzard added the ability to adjust the field of view (FOV) in order to alleviate motion sickness, and today’s hotfix removes the ability to increase it past 90, which was negatively affecting the experience.

User Interface and Accessibility

  • Fixed an issue where the camera’s field of view could be increased past 90.
    • Developers’ note: The ability to restrict the field of view was added in 9.2.5 as an accessibility measure to help alleviate motion sickness. All of World of Warcraft — the art, combat mechanics, and player interactions — are built within the parameters of the user interface experience and scale. Increasing the field of view beyond the limit that has been in place since WoW launched was not intended.

Long time World of Warcraft player, I'm always looking for new music to listen to, and weird facts and news to share with friends. I mostly play retail World of Warcraft nowadays, with some occasional Hunt, League of Legends, and Dead by Daylight.
