World of Warcraft offers better eye glows and new ray-traced shadows in Shadowlands

Who taught you math?!

If there are two things that are going to define World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, it will be shadows and glowing eyes. Lots of people have glowing eyes in WoW, after all, and shadows are… right there in the name! Yes? No? Well, regardless, the latest build has another improved eye glow effect for Human and Forsaken Death Knights, so even if you don’t totally buy the importance it’s still getting better.

But what about shadows? The game has that covered too with the new ray-traced shadow option found in the game’s current alpha client. While this will put more of a demand on your system (obviously), it should lead to much nicer and more realistic shadows. Unfortunately, at this point it’s just an option you can play around with rather than being something actually in the game, so players will have to wait a bit longer to see how much nicer this option makes the game look, but it’s clear that the option will be available as testing rolls onward.
