Yesterday I started noticing my game locks up in periods of frantic activity (transitions in LK fight) and even moderate action ( Aoe'ing trash mobs in U.Pinnacle). The game sort of stops responding for several seconds, and then starts up again. The only addon I have installed is DBM, but when I asked if others with the same addon were having similar problems, it appeared as if it was only me. Again, the freezes are never very long, but six or eight seconds of being completely inert and immoble is brutal on mechanic-heavy enounters. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
This problem is a hardware issue and not a software issue. The problem stems from the fact that your video card runs out of memory and has to "Freeze" in order to allocate resources to continue displaying the game. Unfortunately the only fix is to run the game at lower settings. Sometimes even at their lowest in order to fully be able to play it smoothly. This problem is the same for any Video Game being played on your computer, not just WoW.
