Silvermoon 5.1 FPS Freezing Issue

90 Goblin Shaman
After taking a portal from Moon Shrine me and a buddy both walked into the courtyard to instantly drop from 60 FPS to 1 FPS.

I attempted reloading and relogging without much success. I finally figured out that if I panned camera away from looking at the fountain I was able to move around enough to get out of the courtyard.

Seems this issue has been ongoing but I can't find a response in any of these forums nor a sticky which I would expect with a serious issue like this. A city should not be freezing a player's computer.

A response would be great!

Thank you.

Wish I would have checked this board first. I just spent 2 hours contacting newegg and Asus thinking my video card had just failed me.

But, yeah, this is happening to me too. Just walked/flew from Undercity -> Silvermoon after I finally just hearthed out of the Silvermoon City portal entrance. No FPS issues until I hit the palace in Silvermoon again. Drops my FPS to <1 and generally just acts as if the game froze.

Video Card is an ASUS Radeon HD 7750 if it matters.

I'm on a Macbook Pro (which is reason enough for bad stuff to happen) with a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. I keep all my settings low and I usually have no issues with FPS, this being the exception. The only response I've seen from Blizzard was that they are researching the issue.

They should put a under construction sign up on the portals to Silvermoon and lock the gates!

Apparently, they're aware this is an issue:
