Wow stuttering after patch 5.2
SWTOR (as a side note)...one if it's biggest detractions had been the horrible graphics issues unless your CPU was top-end.
What I'm seeing since 5.2 dropped (and to an extent, since CRZ went live) is virtually identical to what I used to get in SWTOR (made me quit the game...even free couldn't stand it).
It's the only other angle that hasn't really been discussed...
Try healing Elegon at <5fps...blew 2 raid nights this week trying to tinker our way through that encounter to no avail.
Occasionally it'll hang so hard (framerates less than 10) that it'll just disconnect me.
There are times when everyone in vent has the lag at the same time too so perhaps there is different types of causes for the lag. Ran fine before 5.2.
*Sigh. Love the priorities Blizz, love'em.
SET processAffinityMask "2". I might be a bit paranoic about this but never hurt to check. It sets wow to run on only the second core ( http://www.wowpedia.org/CVar_processAffinityMask )
Sadly, stutters *still happens* but they last about 1s and not so frequently. Deleting the above line, and restarting wow, and I get the random stutters lasting as much as 15s. This time I tested the whole morning. But again, *might* as well be just luck.
If it happens while flying, going back over the same area doesn't cause it again, so it's not like the 5.0 FPS problem where you could turn your camera one way to get high FPS and then back to tank it again.
I'm curious if we all have the same cpu/gpu - I noticed most seem to be using a geforce or amd processor - aside from the fellow with the imac.
