Okay so first off let me explain what happens
Ever since the last maintenance of 2012 (somewhere between 3rd -4th week of Dec), I have been experience FPS drop in Act 3, specifically in Rakkis Crossing and Arreat Crater 2. It usually happens during large mobs, where my FPS would drop down to single digits.
Now I was extremely worried about this since my PC can handle more intensive games than D3. So i tried playing the game at the lowest setting possible, and i still get this crazy FPS drop. Does anyone else have these problems? it's kinda irritating to play with the spikes.
However, none of the FPS drops happen in other areas even if the mobs are bigger ex. halls of agony 2
FYI high temp is ruled out since I've monitored it and nothing is hot.
FYI connection is stable at green
