World Of Warcraft: Cataclysm--Tom's Performance Guide

Textures: Texture Resolution

There are four options for the Texture Resolution setting:

  1. Low: Low-resolution textures, low-detail terrain blending, and low-resolution player textures
  2. Fair: High-resolution textures, low-detail terrain blending, and low-resolution player textures
  3. Good: High-resolution textures, high-detail terrain blending, and low-resolution player textures
  4. High: High-resolution textures, high-detail terrain blending, and high-resolution player textures

Texture Resolution: Low

It's pretty easy to see the difference between Low and Fair settings. Just start with the orc's Dragonstalker-looking armor. Then look at the dragon in the foreground's scales. The dead dragon in the background is also pretty blurry-looking at the Low setting compared to Fair.

Texture Resolution: Fair

Texture Resolution: Good

Texture Resolution: High
