12/30/2010 8:42 PMPosted by SorviseI have a similar problem as is stated in this thread http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1406222523 (Sticky) Unable to load into any character, however mine is very specific. I posted in that thread as well but thought to start another in case the problem isn't related.
I can log into WOW on all my characters. I can play all across the world with no issues, not even high latency. The problem I do have only occurs when I enter level 85 heroic instances. This does not happen on regular instances or level 80 heroic instances. I get the previously metioned issue where the load bar gets to 100% and freezes. From there it's a process kill via Task Manager and then reload WOW. After that I can enter the instance. If I die the load screen taking me out of the instance works fine and I'm in a graveyard. Again trying to enter the instance results in the load screen freezing.
I haven't tried any of the fixes in the other thread except deleting the cache folder, running the repair utility and changing checksum/flow control/duplex settings. The problem is still happening. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
For me, the issue is certainly hit or miss but always the same symptoms. First of all there is no lag experienced in game at all. Whenever a loading screen comes up between continents or a dungeon there is a good chance (50%+) the load bar will fill up to 100% but I will remain at the loading screen. My guildmates say that I am in the zone and doing idle animations. I can hear the music for the zone. This can happen on initial login after a complete exit from the client as well as after a clean reboot of the system. It will also occur while switching toons. The worst, however, is switching from Azeroth content to a dungeon and vice-versa. This makes releasing and running back in a crap shoot.
Once the bar reaches full I can either wait approximately 2 minutes to be disconnected or am forced to close WoW.
