Ultra+ Graphics Guide (No Addons Needed)

This guide is intended to give you the ability to push your WoW Classis graphics beyond what is possible in the standard menu by using console commands.


have videos detailing the effects, but their commands are outdated and have conflicting or redundant lines. I have gone through the API to make a definitive and current list for Classic.

Graphics Options

First set your graphics to low, run the macros found below, then set them to Ultra.

Under System -> Advanced -> set MSAA 16 bit. Under Graphics do the same.

Increase contrast slider to 60-80 to taste.


Ultra+ Graphics Macro

This macro mostly extends the distance at which things are visible, so the world doesn't feel like it is appearing in front of you as you move.

/console groundEffectDensity 256

/console groundEffectDist 600

/console detailDoodadAlpha 100

/console horizonfarclip 2112

/console farclip 1250

/console characterAmbient 1

/console skyCloudLod 3

/console waterDetail 3

/console sunshafts 2

Ultra+ Shadows Macro

This Macro enhances the shadows. Shadows are one of the most taxing graphical elements and should be the first thing be sacrificed if you are having problems.

/console shadowTextureSize 2048

/console shadowMode 3

/console ssao 1

/console ssaoBlur 2

/console extshadowquality 4

Special Effects Macro

This macro maximizes the weather effect, the blood from fighting, and increases the effects of spells.

Action Cam Macro

This macro toggles on the Action Cam. It was an experimental feature that remains in the game. Many people do not like the camera snapping, but this macro only turns on 'movement'. Great for immersive leveling, solo play, or first person.

/console ActionCam heavyHeadMove

No Error Ability Spam Macro

This macro is for added immersion, add it to the primary ability you spam and it will remove both error text and error sounds for that ability.

/console Sound_EnableErrorSpeech 0


/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()

/console Sound_EnableErrorSpeech 1

Please let me know if any of the informative provided is incorrect and I will adjust the guide accordingly.
