I've been working on this for a while and haven't really been able to come up with the solution. what I'm looking for is the same thing as the WoW movement/camera system but incorporating the 3rd axis movement for 3d space simulation. I know almost nothing about scripting, my programmer is working on another project right now and doesn't have time to help me at the moment. Any help is greatly appriciated. Thanks.
You should grab the Character Animation example project and play around with the scripts there. There are some 3rd person camera scripts that I find very useful to start tweaking and modifying.
Another good source for base scripts are the Standard Assets that comes with Unity and the 3D Platform Game tutorial
