Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Note that the value returned represents the map display, and not necessarily the player's actual location. The SetMapToCurrentZone() function will reset the values to represent the player's location.
  • Note that zone IDs returned by this function are not the same across all localizations of World of Warcraft.
