No ETA yet, but we are working on getting this addressed.

Your crying over 450 MS? Us Australians.. That's normal. Were "Oceanic" but there hosted in the US, Lol. Nothing we can do to change our Ping/MS

Few people are crying. However - the client is broken. Those of use that are "muscle-memoried" to a specific delay are having a hard time knowing whether it's our ISP or some other problem with this lag.

Helpful posts only imo.

I'm picking out a thermos for you.
When I can't see my ping I have no reason to yell at my room mate for torrents.
Is there any type of command I could use to pull up a snapshot ping for latency?
/dump GetNetStats() <------ it's broken, is there another way to test the latency?

I can't find anything

On a side note I too have notice this problem but as I've installed a few days ago a bootcamp Windows 7 partition I can confirm that I only have the problem using the Mac client (under Windows latency indicator is working as expected).

Nothing on wowprogramming.com unfortunately.

Many fascinating commands you might get results from /dump from tho :)

But nothing I can see for latency. Other then the GetNetStats() function :)

In case anyone's interested.

I had a look at the code for Quartz in it's latency module.

It appears to be using GetTime() and calculating the latency manually.

Maybe you guys wanting a way of tracking your latency could try that ?

quartz monitors UNIT_SPELLCAST events to determin when user actually intiiates cast, then monitors combat log for when server actually verifies the cast went off, then calls the diff your latency., it's pretty effective

I am assuming it will be fixed after maintenance.

doubt it, there is no client patch.

Please fix this problem. Playing the game is no fun atm. I love your products Blizz but I'm running out of patience with this.

We're working on getting this updated. Like Omegal stated this will require a client patch of sorts to update. No ETA yet, but it's something that is on our plate to fix.

Thanks for the info everyone. It is at least good to know that I can just stop fiddling with my internet connection. I hope this is fixed soon. Very disappointing, considering there were no problems for me pre-4.3. :(
