How to Make World of Warcraft Look Better in 2021

Despite its age, World of Warcraft is holding up surprisingly well in 2021, but there are a few things you can do to bring the game to a whole new level.

If you are curious about how a modern take on WoW would look like, head over to this post where we speculate on what World of Warcraft 2 would look like with modern graphics

Graphics

How well WoW looks will of course depend a lot on your hardware. Even if it’s an old game, playing on Ultra quality will require a good GPU and a good monitor will also help a great deal.

If you can’t bump the graphics all the way up, try playing around with contrast and brightness to make the graphics pop a bit more.

Addons to Make World of Warcraft Look Better

Now there aren’t any addons to improve WoW’s graphics, not legally anyway, but you can improve the general look and feel of the game with add-ons. Below you can see some of our favorite addons.

Azerite UI

The Azerite UI is perfect for players who want WoW to take on a completely new look.

The Azerite UI takes a bit of getting used to as it is initially pretty different from most other WoW UIs, but it does bring a whole new look and feel to the game. It will make WoW feel almost like an Action RPG.

Dynamic Cam

Dynamic Cam offers different settings to improve the game’s camera angles.

World of Warcraft does have a built-in action cam feature but if you want to take the camera angles even further, you can get the Dynamic Cam addon that will let you play around with the camera angles even further.

The offset over the shoulder angle pairs wonderfully with the Azerite UI to give a unique gaming experience.

Immersion
