Increased Elegon Lag after 5.2?

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
I've been running on high-ultra settings and have had no lag whatsoever on elegon yet since 5.2 has dropped i've found myself dropping to single digit fps on Elegon. Anyone else having this problem? Any solutions? I've tried lowering settings to low and it still lags considerably.
Yeah something very weird is going on with Elegon. I don't get any frame drops but I can literally hear my videocard fan SCREAMING when I step onto Elegon's platform now. It only happens when you're actually on the platform, as soon as you step off it stops. I'd repost this in the bug forum.
Primordius' center platform has a similar effect for me, but it doesn't have the changing effect that Elegon's platform does.

Yes, I've seen a huge increase in lag on Elegon. It occurs when I step onto the platform.
My friend and I have also been experiencing this. Please fix it.
Yes, me and several of my guild mates are having the exact same problem. On a wide range of computers, low end to very high end comps.

Also even more worrying is I checked my graphic card temperatures during this fight and they shoot up roughly 15 degrees and then as soon as Elegon fight is over the temps immediately go back down. Thats not healthy for a graphics card at all.

This NEVER happened before patch 5.2 and I have killed Elegon many times.

Please look into this Blizzard.
i have the same problem and it only happens in lfr normal mode theres no lag but lfr its so bad that i actually die from all the lag...
Ugg, this is awful now.
While this is relevant to the R&D forum for pinpointing the issue, have you made a thread on the bug report forum too?
This was crossposted in the bug forum shortly after the OP was made.

your not the only one It worst yet I crash on that fight I fear if I get a healer or worst have to tank on him with my other char since 5.2 they crash freeze and I get kick out the raid.
I don't play on ultra-high (or even high settings...or even good >_>) normally but something that worked for many people in my guild this week was to turn your shadow quality settings up. It sounds counter-intuitive but for some reason it works. Went from sub 20 fps to well over 40 on Elegon this week; same for Primordius.

Hope this helps!
Happens to me all the time in LFR with all my graphics settings set to low.
My fps was already awful before Elegon, now whenever I get on the center platform as of 5.2, my framerates drop down to about 3 fps, with all settings on the lowest possible.

Also, I think part of the reason Primordius' platform is like that is because there's actually something underneath the center platform.
Don't even try to do Elegon crossrealm...
The only graphics lag I get is during sand adds on Council of Elders - it can drop to under 5 FPS. Normally 30+.

I noticed crazy lag problems with Elegon recently too... it didn't do this to me the first few months on my monk. My FPS drops to like 6 and I even reduced my settings to low low low
Bought a machine with 10x the frames, and the lag is still bad, I go from 60 on ultra to 25 on normal settings now, instead of 15 frames to .5
