How to Change the Camera Angle in WoW
By Joshua Phillips
"World of Warcraft" is a highly customizable game, allowing you to change many features such as the interface used to play or the angle of your camera. Whether you want to adjust the camera angle for screenshots or to get a better look at your enemies to dodge attacks, you can do this using a combination of the keyboard and mouse. "World of Warcraft" allows you to not only zoom the camera in or out, but also manually adjust the camera using the mouse to create your own angle.
Press either the "End" key on your keyboard or scroll the mouse wheel down to zoom the camera out.
Press the "Home" key on your keyboard or scroll the mouse wheel up to zoom the camera in.
Click and hold the left mouse button to move the camera in the direction of the mouse without moving your character. This method of changing the camera angle is ideal for screenshots.
Click and hold the right mouse button to move the camera in the direction of the mouse. When you use the right mouse button, the character will turn to face the direction you are moving the camera.
- You can change the controls for the camera at any time by pressing "Esc" on your keyboard to enter the Options menu, then clicking "Key Bindings" and scrolling down to the Camera Functions section.
- If you encounter any difficulties with setting the camera to the proper angle, often logging out of the game and logging back in will fix the problem.
- Information in this article applies to "World of Warcraft" version 5.0.5. It may vary slightly or significantly with other versions of the software.
