I have super bad mob/player/object draw distance on my main right now. Mobs, players, or herb nodes aren't appearing until I'm within 5 yards of them and then they show up. In Undercity I can't see anything, not even guards, unless they're right near me.
I got on my bank alt to see if the same problem existed for him, and he can see guards all the way across Orgrimmar.
Lemme know. Want a good name for my alt but all the good names are level 1s on Joe Shmoe's account.
Did you know? On Blizzard servers, if you created a ticket and asked to have a name that you suspect was on an inactive character, some GMs would actually give it to you and force a rename on the inactive character if that character was level 1? My druid Lucky earned his name this way.
