World of Warcraft is receiving an accessibility fix, this time for the Grimrail Depot and Maw of Souls dungeons after the community reported that the moving aspects of both dungeons were causing motion sickness.
Blizzard recently announced this shadowlands Season 4 will shake things up and feature Mythic+ dungeons from the last four expansions, with the community deciding which of them warlords of draenor will be included. With the potential that Grimrail Depot could be one of them, a member of the World of Warcraft Community Council created a topic about Grimrail Depot and motion sickness and reported that he had visited the dungeon several times recently and experienced terrible motion sickness almost every time, which is not limited to personal experience. This player has asked that there is a way to stop the train.
Community Manager Bornakk responded to the feedback and offered a different approach: “Motion sickness was an issue when we first discussed the possibility of making Grimrail a Mythic+ dungeon. Fortunately, one of our designers came up with a clever solution.”
The solution coming in 9.2.5 is called Motion Sick Peon’s Magical Elixir. You can get one from an NPC named Motion Sick Peon in the first carriage of the train. If you do Maw of Souls, you can get one from the Motion Sick Peon’s soul.
Accessibility Update: In 9.2.5, the Magical Elixir of the Motionsick Peon will be available in the Grimrail Depot and Maw of Souls Dungeons, hiding the moving environment pieces inside.

Using this consumable will hide the moving parts in the environment just for you. You will see a static environment that will not hinder the completion of the tasks at hand. So no more pulling motion and no more whirling motion.
This accessibility change should help players afflicted with motion sickness, and if the feedback on it is positive, maybe even a model for other instances with the potential to cause problems.
This change is one of several accessibility features that games like Impressive have done, and it is to be seen positively.
