Yep, me too. I'm sitting too close to my HDTV for my own good, a fix will make a lot of people happy.

It amazes me this sort of issue wasn't addressed in beta, the current UI should never had made it past alpha let alone that the game's gone live with it.

I've known my glasses need updating for a while (It's a slow progression, I can still read these forums and others fine, but other text of the same size gets fuzzy when I try to read it depending on contrast.). However, I absolutely cannot read the tooltips at a distance normally experienced using my desktop. Leaning in all the time just gives me a backache.

Anyway, I support font size changes and I'll stop whining now .

I agree, it's a real strain on my eyes to try to read some of the text.

I am middle aged and have a hard time seeing the font as well. The amount of eye strain has kept me from being able to play the game well enough to keep up with friends and guild mates. My work around has been to ask my friend to give me a brief on tool tips and conversations. I feel like I am imposing on them.

Agreed. A UI scale needs to be added. One of the developer blogs had said that we would have the option to change our font sizes, so I'm not sure why we don't. Also, how do you change the chat font size?

Add my wife and my /sign to this as well.

They need to add some type of font size adjustment to the entire UI, not just the chat box. We are also middle aged... and the text in the cut scenes, tooltips, vendors etc is way too small!
