With WoW: Shadowlands, the Blizzard developers have famously expanded the system area with some new options for, for example, spell density, the FpS threshold or ray tracing shadows. The current WoW Classic version, however, had nothing of all the modern bells and whistles until now.
However, that could change with WoW (buy now 14,99 € ): Burning Crusade Classic. When the closed beta version of TBC Classic briefly appeared in the Blizzard launcherlast night, some players were able to take a look at the system options.
And what did they discover there in the "Advanced" section? Of course, the various options for raytracing shadows:
- Medium: Ray traced shadows from ray light sources have lower resolution.
- Good: Ray traced shadows from ray and local light sources have lower resolution.
- High: Ray tracing shadows from ray and local light sources have full resolution.
These options are only usable if you have a graphics card with hardware ray tracing. Also required: Windows 10 with the May 2020 update, the latest graphics driver, and DirectX12. For all the settings, the Dataminer have of course already discovered the corresponding "Global Strings":
- NEW RT_SHADOW_QUALITYRay
- NEW VIDEO_OPTIONS_RT_SHADOW_QUALITY_FAIRRay
Traced Shadows from directional light sources at reducedresolution.
- NEW OPTION_TOOLTIP_RT_SHADOW_QUALITYImproves
shadow quality with ray tracing, which produces shadows with more natural softness, greatly increased precision, and from additional light sources.
- NEW VIDEO_OPTIONS_RT_SHADOW_QUALITY_HIGHRay

- NEW VIDEO_OPTIONS_RT_SHADOW_QUALITY_MEDIUMRay
