10+ second delay, looting, new items, quests.

Technical Support
Ever since I got to the continent of Pandaria this has been a problem.

I'll kill a mob and then attempt to loot, my character stays in the looting animation from 10-20 seconds. Then the items appear. To save time, I'll usually attempt to loot, cancel and then kill more mobs since the delay seems to go away after the 10-20 seconds as long as I at least start to loot the item.

When I head to Halfhill to the seed vendor, 90% of the items are "retrieving item information" for 10-60 seconds. Some other vendors in Pandaria do this as well, but not all.

When I start new quests, the quest items and the objectives won't appear for 10-60 seconds.

I never had any of these problems as I was levelling up this character. Only since I got to Pandaria.

The looting issue seems to be sporadic, once I've started looting in one area the problem goes away til I enter a new area.
I'm no expert, but that sounds like it could be a User Interface thing. It's possible that something is bugging out on your first attempt to loot, clears up, and then when your character zones it starts all over again (something being reset when you zone).

I'd recommend trying to reset your UI first to see if that helps. If not, you might want to ask the folks over in Technical Support. This sounds like a potential client side or internet traffic issue that could be looked into further.

Do me a favor and let me know if this works for you?

Sigh looks like it was the addons probably Tradeskillmaster I'm guessing, it's been giving me LUA errors all the time. But never during looting.

Now I'll have to spend the next few hours setting up my add-ons again... ARRRRRGH
