Motion Sickness Accessibility Options in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts


Blizzard added global strings in the latest Shadowlands build for new Accessibility options to prevent motion sickness.

Motion sickness occurs due to a difference between actual and experienced motion. Symptoms commonly include nausea.

In Shadowlands, you will be able to reduce camera motion by keeping your character centered and adjust shake intensity, as indicated by the datamined global strings below.

  • MOTION_SICKNESS_NONE - Allow Dynamic Camera Movement
  • MOTION_SICKNESS_BOTH - Keep Character Centered and Reduce Camera Motion

I wonder what impact these settings will actually have. As someone who suffers from motion sickness in games, I applaud any options made available to address it. 

It just seems like these options wouldn't change much except for players who are playing with the action cam on. As that option is well hidden, I doubt most people even know it's a thing. (I use it via the dynamic cam add-on to do things like zooming out farther.) 

Could these options suggest that action cam is going to be unveiled as a mainstream feature, thus requiring these new strings? That would be cool. Or am I just not comprehending the impact of them in the current system?

I've found the later WoW expansions have been much friendlier to motion sickness, as structures have generally increased in size, it is often a lot less of the rabbit warren feeling that I personally feel in vanilla, BC and WotWK.

I had almost no issues in Legion at all, and only a couple of really annoying places in BfA. Pretty much all instanced content allows you to zoom out to max, and once you can blow over the outdoor content the need to dance about much goes away.......

I regret buying the skygolem every day cause that shitty mount makes me feel sick, and the zig zagging back and forth is way to intense.. If this would fix that, then I'd be happy, but I dont think they apply to mounted animations

      Harldan, creator of the fastest level 10-60 route, which took 3 hours and 21 minutes, returns with the fastest 60-70 leveling route for your main character in Dragonflight.
      The leveling route took 4 hours and 31 minutes.
      The Waking Shores
      Once you reach the area, complete the quests until you reach Wingrest Embassy. It is absolutely necessary to take no detours for rares, treasures, or side quests.  At Wingrest Embassy during the Sendrax RP, complete "From Such Great Heights" and "Give Peace a Chance" side quests. If any side quests haven't been mentioned, skip them. Follow the campaign questline until you reach Scalecracker Keep. Here, finish off Dragonhunter Igordan (Bonus Objective) while you complete the main objectives. You should also complete the bonus objective in the area provided it is not overcrowded there. As you complete the quest to heal draconids, complete the "Fighting Fire with... Water" side quest at the nearby cave since it is along the path. When you reach the Life-Binder Conservatory, keep an eye on "Firava the Rekindler" rare and kill it. Ignore the nearby side quests. Once you reach the Ruby Life Pools, talk to Lifecaller Tzadrak and set your Hearthstone there.  At this point, you will unlock Dragonriding. If you focus on reaching Level 70 the fastest, you shouldn't waste time collecting all glyphs and collect them only if they're directly along your path. After completing the quests, use your Hearthstone to return to the Ruby Life Pools. In the next area, you will find two rare mobs "Terillod the Devout" and "Klozicc the Ascended". When you reach Obsidian Bulwark, speak to the innkeeper to set your Hearthstone here. However, you must be in a guild and your Hearthstone must only be on a 15-minute cooldown. Otherwise, it won't be worth it. You should only fly on Wrathion's back for the "Taking the Walls" quest, as it's significantly faster compared to Dragonriding. After receiving the quest "Black Wagon Flight", use your Hearthstone to quickly return to the Obsidian Bulwark. While completing the quest, make sure to stay close to the cart at all times. When you complete a few more quests at the Ruby Life Pools, Alexstasza will direct you toward Ohn'ahran Plains. You will learn more about the routes for the other zones in the video guide linked below.

      Dragonriding has been extremely well received, and is probably one of the best additions to WoW since its launch, with players flying around and enjoying themselves immensely. However, with new highs must come new lows as well, and a new villain has shown their face (and it's not just the fact that dragonriding doesn't work outside the Dragon Isles). Forget elevator bosses, we have a brand new environmental hazard that's out to get us!
      That last turn to the camera is especially great.
      This seems to be a pretty wide-spread "problem", as the community is having some fun with it.

      Have you had any tree problems or have one specific tree-nemesis you keep running into?

      We're looking at how to get the Scrappy Worldsnail mount in Dragonflight.
      It will take approximately 2-4 hours to farm materials for the mount. The prerequisite is to complete one of the side-quests in the Waking Shores called "The Shadow of His Wings." Below, you will find a map with the exact coordinates for the starter quest.
      The intro quest can be found at 39.81 47.85.

      Once you complete four quests in this area, head to the Obsidian Citadel and pick between Wrathion or Sabellian, it does not matter which one you select.
      Now you must kill mobs near Obsidian Citadel and loot 30 Key Fragments along with 3 Key Framing to combine them into a Restored Obsidian Key. You must hand the first key to Wrathion, but any subsequent keys can be given to IIgys the Believer.
      Once you hand that in, you will receive a Twilight Cache. Inside the cache is Worldbreaker Membership which puts a buff on you and lasts for two days. The item does not have a guaranteed chance to drop, however. If you die, you will lose the Worldbreaker Membership debuff and must start from the beginning, so don't die!
      The debuff allows you to loot items from djardin NPCs called Magmotes; a currency used to purchase the mount. At this point, you can go to Premade Groups and search for Keys of Loyalty because there will be many people farming in the area.
      You should keep handing in keys and fragments, providing additional Magmotes. Once you have 1,000 Magmotes, head to Dealer Vexil and buy Slumbering Worldsnail Shell. The vendor is located in a cave with the entrance at 35.99 47.82 in the Waking Shores. You must first complete "The Shadow of His Wings" questline for the vendor to become Friendly.

      MrGM has uploaded a video guide for Scrappy Worldsnail that you can watch below.

      You can easily farm 2 Renown (or 5K reputation) with the Dragonscale Expedition by flying to select locations and clicking flags.
      Before clicking the flags, don't forget to pick up the +10% Darkmoon Faire buff.

      The Waking Shores -- 5 Flags

      Ohn'ahran Plains -- 4 Flags

      Azure Span -- 6 Flags

      Thaldraszus -- 5 Flags

      A few moments ago, Doubleagent has reached Level 66 in Dragonflight.
      Four levels to go for Doubleagent, who's on the way to reach Level 70 without leaving the Wandering Isle or choosing a faction.
