The base UI fires two events, UNIT_SPELLCAST events for when YOU send a command to client to cast a spell, followed by a second event in combat log even unfiltered, this event fires when server triggers your spell cast. quartz timestamps both of these events, then calculates the diff between them as your latency. It's fairely accurate but not perfect. It might sometimes read your latency as 700ms when it's more like 70ms but for whatever reason the CLEU was a little slow, that said, on average it's pretty consistent and accurate though.

You still do not have any solution to the problem?

Gadu, honesty they probably fixed it already but they aren't going to push a client patch for one minor cosmetic issue, they'll probably just make us wait until 4.3.2 or something would be my guess. client patches require a lot of coordination from various departments and server patching as well because servers have to be updated to validate new game versions, stuff like this is down time and extra resources that they honestly won't spend on such a minor issue. They'd have to have serious enough issues to push an emergency patch like that otherwise they'll just roll the fixes up to the next normal scheduled patch.

Same issue since patch 4.3, i normally don't have latency issues (usually around 7-12ms), However recently LFR and Instances have been really slow. So I went searching for this forum. I should note that I did notice it was 0ms / 0ms the day the patch came out since I use Titan-Panel and it shows in the bar immediately.

Thanks. We're still working on getting this resolved. I'll pass any updates we have about this down the pipe line.

Im experiencing moments of excessive inactivity making pvp impossible along with PVE in heavy mobs. FPS is ok a little expected graphic lag in towns. but i will spam spells and absolutely nothing will happen for fifteen or some odd seconds. Mac client as well.

I hope this gets fixed really soon :<

that wouldn't be related to the display though, there'd still be something deeper going on, you want to check out some of steps here

if you're not on a very fast connection, or you're on radio/satelite, you may also want to disable "optimize network for speed" in your network options

This was just plain sloppy that it wasn't caught on the PTR. Basically what this comes down to.

I actually did notice it on the PTR, i just thought the bug was the server, not the client. :\

Also having this issue, although its not detrimental to my tanking, or gameplay, i do find one of those annoying things. I hope blizz will fix this problem soon, seeing how this going on weeks now.

Completely understand your response none the less if its only a cosmetic issue i would think a hottfix would take care of it then.
Support Forum Agent
A hot fix won't fix this. Requires a client side patch, which needs to encompass other things and needs a bit of prep work. There is a lot of things that need to be done for a client patch.

And when is the next client update?

Surely you must have some ball park idea of when that might be.
Support Forum Agent
I do not know when the next release patch date is. Most times there is a PTR prior to the release of a patch. Once a PTR has been released we may have some idea then,.

Sorry to necro, but am I understanding correctly? That this problem which has gone on for weeks is only fixable by a patch? Even though this affects more than one or two players? In the past Blizzard has released mini-patches to fix technical issues without going to a ptr, why can't it be fixed now?

(I don't mean to sound rude, but I have been living with this since 4.3 hit and I find it frustrating at times)

they only do minipatches for serious issues. this one isn't serious, it's purely cosmetic. It sucks for tech support since we can't ask users what wow reports their latency at, but beyond that it doesn't actually adversely affect gameplay.

Client patches deployment involve a lot of things, patching all the servers with new information so they don't turn it down logging in for one. Compatbility testing with cross platform clients still like making sure updating mac client doesn't cause problems for windows one, etc. They make an assessment and determine if all that work is worth the fix or not. If it is not, they will just wait and roll the fix with a regularly scheduled patch.

They even rolled out a bugfix patch for 4.3 already for the priority issues, making it even less likely to do a second one for something they missed.

I would like to see this fixed soon, it is annoying not knowing my MS. I would also like to not flipping crash during the DS cinematics! I have tried the work around mentioned on the forums and that doesn't work for me, my screen resolution is 1650 x 1050 which is the highest I can get and still crash 90% of the time when it goes to a cut scene.

So I am just stuck praying that I don't crash on them during raids. It sucks for my guild to loose a healer just because of a stupid cinematic that they all exit out of anyways. Please for the love of god fix this, I am feeling jipped for being a Mac user.
