[WoW] Why am I Lagging? (FPS) - Page 2

Ahah, that was it. Turning Shadow Quality from Ultra to High gives me a consistent FPS of 60 in Orgrimmar (Yay). Apparently drawing dynamic shadows everywhere in the field of vision is an intensive graphics process.

Yep. When I played WoW on my sig rig, I always had shadows set to "low". If I maxed shadows my FPS dramatically dropped.

Your video card worth more than my WoW rig and yet I run everything maxed with no lag.
Orgrimmar is indeed a place where you don't want to check your fps.

In orgr I get 20 fps and stutter.
In a raid or dungeon or questing I always get over 60 fps.

The last time I played WoW, prob the release of this last patch early May, The addons were causing my FPS to sink. I disabled them and everything went back to normal.
