"World of Warcraft," or "WoW," allows players to customise their gameplay to create a unique experience. If you want to maintain a close-up, first-person view while you're working on your profession or checking out your gear, you can use the mouse wheel to zoom in the camera's view. However, when you're in a ten-person raid or a mysterious dungeon, you may need to get a wider, more third-person viewpoint. When the mouse wheel doesn't zoom the camera out far enough, you'll have to manually increase your max camera distance in other ways.
