from October's thread on this issue, I am providing the current info after 'rebuild game caches and remove all temp files/addons and see if it works? Disabling addons isn't the same, as they can still cause issues when disabled.'
1. When did this issue first start? within the last couple of weeks
2. Does the low FPS persist in Windowed, Fullscreen and Windowed mode? yes
3. What FPS are you experiencing in-game when this happens? between 6-12 fps
4. When does the low FPS start? (immediately when starting the game, after 'X' time of gameplay, etc) within a couple of seconds of logging on and persistently
5. Have you've done all the steps (including playtest with no addons installed) from our World of Warcraft Low Performance (Mac) support article? yes
6. Please post a copy of your config.wtf file on http://pastebin.com/ and link the url here. The config.wtf file is located in /Applications/World of Warcraft/WTF. This can be opened with TextEdit. http://pastebin.com/eC4B7bH2
7. Does this happen on the 32-bit client, 64-bit client, or both clients? yes, both
Finally, please post your system information here.
1. Launch World of Warcraft and log in.
2. Put World of Warcraft into Windowed Mode if it is not already in Windowed Mode.
3. From the system menu bar, select Help > Copy Support Information: http://i45.tinypic.com/foodww.png

Thanks for your consideration
The only thing I can see if that this might be causing the issue. OS X 10.8.3 isn't out yet, and we don't support developer builds, as they are still being tested.
And, have you tried to disable SSAO? It looks like it is currently enabled.
And I have to ask, since you're on a rMBP, have you reset the SMC? I know after EFI update post 10.8.2, there has been reports of low performance which SMC reset resolves most times.
