    No.

    Just greater viewing distance and improved shadows.

    Are they considering upgrading to DX10? It would be cool if they would have a "advanced client" for those gamers up with the times. I mean I think the graphics haven't changed in 4 years, right?

    Keeping in mind that WoW is not a photorealistic title, can you elaborate on which types of effects you are looking to see in the game ?

    Transparencies, light rays and advanced shadowing, better looking outfits. Reflections, whatever...

    The nice thing with WoW is that it runs great on most kinds of newer hardware, even lowend stuff.

    I rather have a bit less realistic gfx than a resource hog like AoC was and that game didn't even run properly on a max specced out Macbook Pro when it came out. And that was without any AA or other screen candy..

    They could do what EVE Online does. They have a basic client (which is the old one) and a "premium client" which is DX10.
