High world ms

85 Blood Elf Death Knight

Whilst in combat in Bastion of Twilight and anywhere where there are lots of players makes my world ms become very high (3k+) whilst my home ms is low. I am just wondering what may be the cause of this and if there is any way to solve it.
Edit: I also encounter constant DC's when this occurs.

Lowering my video settings didn't work.

'World' is a reference to the connection to our servers that transmits all the other data... combat, data from the people around you (specs, gear, enchants, etc.), NPCs, mobs, casting, professions, etc. Going into a highly populated zone (like a capital city) will drastically increase the amount of data being sent over this connection and will raise the reported latency.

Tell people to turn off recount,gearscore,failbot, ect this lowers com trafic to your computer
