This CVar controls the violence level setting of in-game combat. It is very noteworthy for parents with young children who play World of Warcraft.
Accepts settings in a range of 0-5, with each setting showing slightly more blood, and slightly more combat effects as the setting is increased.
- No combat effects.
- Blood, display of some combat effects.
- Bloodiest. Highest violence level. A lot of gore.
Changing this setting
Requires UI restart to take effect.
In-game, type the following;
/console violenceLevel setting /reload
Alternatively, you can exit wow, open Config.wtf file, and add the following line;
SET violenceLevel "setting"
For those concerned about young players, do one of the following: Type this in-game:
/console violenceLevel 0 /reload
Or copy and paste the following into Config.wtf file;
