So if you have an RTX card and have updated the new drivers you might notice that some people can flip Ray Tracing on while others cannot, this appears to be a bug with the actual menu, not the system. If you are not comfortable adjusting settings in the .ini please disregard as this is for people who want to turn it on but cant, can and for Blizzard to see that there is currently a workaround

If you go into _ptr WTF access your Config.ini and at the very bottom you will see 2 lines
SET shadowRt “0”
SET RAIDshadowRt “0”
Switch them to 1 (Fair) ,2 (Good) or 3 (High) and you will have Ray Tracing on if you have the driver and hardware

To summarize, testing ray tracing in the Shadowlands Beta requires that you:

  • Use DirectX 12,
  • have a GPU that supports DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1, with the latest drivers installed and used, and
  • have the May 2020 update for Windows 10, version 2004.
