Can you give us detailed information about your computer, the FPS you're seeing and where you're at inside the game? I dropped down to about 20ish last night from a multitude of dying addons and went up to 60 FPS (vsync capped) all throughout ZG after yanking them out. I still had SUF giving me problems whenever casting a pet but... it didn't kill my FPS at least :)

I can see some lower-end and integrated video card struggling on some of the boss' special effects but I really need details :(

Datth....

Really? Are you not looking at other Forum posts? Try this one:
"major lag/freezing after patching 4.1". It has 6 pages of examples for you. The long and short of it... no matter what type of hardware (I'm using high end iMac with ATI GPU) and the second i start a fight, my FPS goes from 114 to .5! This is happening everywhere! Doing quests, do instances, you name it it does happens

This is all after the patch updates are done... clearly something is broken with the patch.

I was absent yesterday, don't see any known issues in about framerate loss in our list of stuff or our test systems experiencing it and my group/guild did not experience it last night. If we get one here we can totally dig deeper but we don't have such a system having FPS loss. We can't really test it in detail unless we know what people are running.

We see way more people complaining about instance server problems than something like FPS.

Datth... Help me help you... what do you need to know? i experienced this personally last night for 7 hours! I was in TB on Dentarg doing the daily quests and the second I cast, my frame rate dropped to .5 from average 110. I was in Thundermar doing dailies and when I cast, same thing. I tried to do a random, I was in BRC and the second we engaged a boss, same thing. Do you need more places??

I have only done battlegrounds myself, but I'm with the rest of the crowd as far as zero addons, deleted usual folders and checked and unchecked the optimize button. Up until yesterday all was great and now I get very close to 1800 ms (world) in every BG I step into. Pretty much unplayable currently.

Computer info. A dxdiag dump would be helpful.

That's not framerate.

Pre patch I was averaging 40-60FPS and after patch... after deleting all addons, checking my internet connection, switching all settings to low.. I jump from 25-30 FPS down to 1-6 FPS roughly every 10-15min if I'm not doing anything or everytime I get into combat. Heroics are a no-go. By the second pull i'm frozen and unable to heal causing death to the group... I'm not very computer savvy but I know that pre patch everything was working wonderfully. Please help meh!

My fps drops to between 1 and 5 for me since the patch. If it's not all still related to this oddball ms that creeped up since patching I apologize, but still an issue and is a post patch issue. I'll try to keep my eyes peeled on here or follow the other posts I imagine - but wasn't a problem until 4.1.

I had the same problem, i put shadow detail at low and it jumped from 16 to 60, I even tried to put it at fair, was still 16, so shadow detail resolve the problem, however, its not normal to get low now when it was high before

There is no dialog, with multiple toons i log in and not even in combat my fps is slammed down to 2/min, on my higher level i log in and its fine, i get into combat and it drops to 1-3 fps, my settings are all already at the lowest possible, and my home lat is 40's and world is 130's.

Hi guys,

I was maxing out at a whopping 4 fps after the patch. I tried addons/no addons, deleted cache & wtf folders and lowered my graphics with absolutely no success. I pretty much just gave up last night.

This morning however I disabled vertical sync in the graphics options and VOILA! All is back to normal.

Hope this helps some frustrated player out there...

Changing the shadow detail from fair to low worked for me as well. I had changed it to fair last night and was still consistently getting 2-5 fps in Stormwind and not much better anywhere else.

Tried disabling Vertical Sync and it worked well for about 5 min, shot my FPS up from 30ish to 50ish but still same result after a few minutes... back down to 3fps. Yayyy.
