Be warned, setting the shadow quality too high for your PC will bring it to its knees - work from a low setting and raise it. Edit

This setting controls the Dynamic Shadows in-game [1].

Current Issues with MacsEdit

Currently, shadows don't work fully in OpenGL. Using a d3d -> OpenGL interface will result in incorrect transparency within models. Using a shadow setting higher than "4" may result into a blank screen in raw OpenGL mode.

Default SettingEdit

0

Possible SettingsEdit

Off. This leaves the 'blob' type shadow only. If off, shadowLOD is activated.
On for characters (Players, NPCs, mounts, etc) only.
On for Environment & characters, low-res, med-distance.
On for Environment & characters, low-res, large distance.
On for Environment & characters, high-res, large distance.
On for everything, shadows overlap, high-res, large distance.

Changing this settingEdit

In-game, type the following

/console extShadowQuality setting

Alternatively, you can exit wow, open the Config.wtf file, and add the following line:

SET extShadowQuality setting

Or you can change the setting via the in-game Video Options.
