Hey,
so I started having a problem recently. When I right click and drag to move my camera, my mouse sometimes just snaps back to cursor mode for some reason. It is very very annoying and makes the game barely playable for content like raids or M+. I don’t know if it happens outside of WoW, I haven’t noticed it, but in WoW, it mainly happens in combat. I can go for a day without having it, and then it happens 5 times in 15 seconds for hours. I searched the wtbblue.com and reddit and I’ve seen a few threads about this, but noone there basically knows what is causing it or how to fix it, none of the threads are resolved.
Any ideas?

Could be a hardware issue, I’ve had that often with several mice that got older.

Dunno why ppl still refering to this common issue as a “hardware issue”
Bought brand new Logitech G502 and Naga trinity within a month coz of this and the problem is still there… and it is indeed unplayble sometimes…

Yeah, some say it’s a hardware problem, but I’ve seen poeple say that they tried it on 3 mice and each of them did it, so it’s not a HW problem, and I don’t wanna throw out a big amount of money to just “try something out”, if my mouse is perfectly fine. Noone knows how to fix this or what causes it, people said it even persists through a clean WoW install… I don’t know what to do, it’s gamebreaking.

try disable the bnet app toasts.
Or check if the problem still occures when you bnet app is closed. (not minimized, exit the app)

Disable ‘Lock Cursor to Window’ in interface>mouse settings. I searched all over and wasted £100 on a new mouse before discovering this

Thanks for adding the solution you found working for you, Drakul!

Though in general we try to avoid resurrecting old threads like this, since information is often out-dated.

Blindbrew, as noted earlier in the thread, most commonly issues like this would be caused by overlays or other third party programs, so be sure to start here first: Closing Background Applications.
