I've always wondered at what sort of different angles play the game. are there people out there doing it top-down Diablo style? Or does anyone play zoomed all the way in, FPS style?For me it depends on which of my toons I'm playing. For my casters I tend to be zoomed out mostly to fit me and whatever I happen to be shooting spells at on screen, and to be able to see my spell effects. When I am on melee I tend to zoom in so that I can actually see the various melee "spell effects", which when I am zoomed out all kind of look the same, which makes melee more boring for me.

I have actually participated in a WOW research program. They later asked me whether I prefered playing with the camera FP or TP (First person or third person). I mailed them back that even the IDEA of playing it FP was rediculous. I had actually gotten the idea what the researchers were doing but when they asked me that question, I was greatly disappointed.They weren't happy with my response either. Hypocrit researchers....

Yeah, i'd say its definitely kind of a catch-22 for me. I feel like i need to be zoomed out all the time to be able to fit everything on the screen, yet in doing so, i'm missing out on a lot of the detail in the game. I never notice people's gear, for example. And like you said, all the melee effects just blend in with each other. =(

As a Hunter I go into 3rd person ever time I'm forced to fight in a cupboard in HoRMost dumbass stupid lazy strategy for the community to "enforce" on each other ever.One day I hope Blizzard explain how they really expected people to do the instance.

To be honest HoR is tankable other ways and ive seen it done a few times. It requires a pretty solid tank to do it though and one of the big problems is when DPS forget to wait for the tank to get aggro when hes using everything in his spellbook to get it on the ranged mobs and keep it. So, basically, It IS possible to do it other ways, just requires a good group and patient dps. =D
