    How far do you zoom out your camera in wow?

    I don't like to zoom it out at max because I like to see my character when fighting against enemy's,
    but it bothers me a lot because I cannot see much as everything is covering up my screen.
    I was wondering do you zoom out at max distance? (New to mmo champion )

    All the way out. Melee has to constantly watch where they stand, chase targets, and dodge the 5.2 linear fire.

    Id say it depends on what i do. If i play on my laptop i zoom out max and if i play on my 50 inch pana ill zoom in.

    Also if i fly i like to zoom out max to enjoy the wiev. I always zoom in max when im fisging etc..

    Mine's at max distance 100% of the time after doing the cameramaxdistancefactor thing. As a tank I do not feel comfortable unless I can have my eyes on the entire room and raid.

    Though while I'm questing I do like to play in first person sometimes for immersion. I just wish they implemented some kind of head bob when your character attacks/casts like EverQuest used to while you were in first person.

    Melee isn't awful for Challenge Modes; you are. Melee players are a liability for the windows of time in which a tank keeps an enemy mob faced towards them, resulting in an exorbitant loss of damage or death. Melee players are a liability for people who keep rooting mobs next to them. Melee are a liability to a healer that cannot heal.

    When I'm just questing or plowing random battlegrounds I have it at about 50%, when I raid I go between 80-100%.
    One cannot simply quit wow his way into Mordor.

    (ranged player) I'm an hunter and I feel as if it is very important to see my character close by when fighting.

    max distance, heroic raiding ele shaman, i hate things like iron qon tornados where it auto zooms you in the first time, and i have to be spamming zoom out again.

    Is there anyway to know what percent you are zoomed out? So I can go back to the distance i was zoomed in and dont lose track

    Shadow priest max zoom always, feels like u got so mutch better control of whats happening, and encounters where u cant move with the camera at max distance falls behind those who you can for me personally.

    Shadow priest: Not as far out as I probably should but out a ways. When stuff gets too small it's hard for me to see what's really going on around the boss. So it's a little of everything. I've tried zooming all the way out but I can't get comfortable with it and environmental stuff gets in the way often and blocks the view.

    about halfway the camera can go so that I can still monitor my invironment, while still managing to strafe correctly/get behind my enemy.
