How to Change Field of View in Patch 9.2.5
You can change your Field of View in WoW from a FoV of 50 to 120.
The script that you can type into your chat box is as follows, replacing # with your desired FoV. The default is 90 FoV.
/console camerafov #
Example Screenshots and Video
90 FoV (Default)
Here is a video of 90 FoV (Default) to 120 FoV.
History of Camera Zoom Distance
During the Legion Beta, Blizzard attempted to reduce the maximum zoom distance of the camera. This was met with massive backlash, as players were concerned about the clarity of encounters with a reduced FoV, but also with people getting motion and simulation sickness from the lower FoV.
Ion Hazzikostas responded on the forums with a post (which has been
quoted by another Community Manager
for preservation), outlining the reasons that they were reducing the maximum zoom distance and how they compromised with the community on a midpoint between the Legion Beta and the then-live game. While some people saw this as a win, others weren't happy with the decision and have dealt with the reduced camera distance.
This new console command gives a similar effect to the camera distance in pre-Legion and it's unclear whether or not this is intended or not. If it isn't intended, how long has this console command existed and why was it created in the firs place?
