For those interested in the performance. Bad news for AMD CPU's.





Has WoW always been like this with AMD? I was thinking about upgrading someones PC soon and I was going to put a Phenom II quad in it but after reading this review it might be a bad idea.
It can't be that bad, my sig rig (laptop) runs WoW on ultra (including shadows) and 8x AA, and I average 40fps in Dalaran. I can get dips into the 20s when there's a lot of particle effects going on (especially when I die and have to return to my body by air.)

If my dual-core laptop can run it that well, an AMD quad should be fine.

I have a feeling that the digital download will activate across the board at 12am. If that's so then if you're a UK resident we'll be playing at 11pm as it'll be CET time, just like when Wrath was launched.

In fact, when Wrath was launched the servers were live at 9.30pm UK time. Apparently that was because of Russia or something, not sure if it'll be the same again.

Doesn't really bother me too much this year as I haven't quite decided what I want to play - got a level 74 priest and I think I might stick to it -the level 80's I've got just aren't fun at the moment.



P.S. If your WoW folder is over 26gig you've got old update files taking up anywhere between 4-8gig worth of space. I can't say where they're situated right now as I'm at work but you may want to look at that.

In a weeks time you'll have forgotten about your copy coming late... If indeed it does!

Delete the files and detroy the disc. This game is addicting. I played for a couple years but finally quit. It's fun, but holy cow does it demand a lot of time if you want to be any good.

I was going to take off 4 days this week but we'll see today if I can get my week's worth of work done in one day

Also, some starting advice from the beta: Go to stormwind/orgrimmar and hit up the postboard ("Hero's Board" at least alliance side) pickup the quests and head to either Vashjir, if you have a good computer (or set graphic distance to GOOD and shadows to HIGH or less), or Hyjal to start your questing. Oh and buy the flight training near the flight path (I think it's available at 80, was in the beta, but sometimes those are for testing). Vashjir will net you a really cool seahorse mount early on that is like epic flying 310speed but underwater. I only know from stormwind, you catch a boat at the docks with the quest and have to do a scripted event. Also, the Whale Shark ports you to a special place if you talk to it!
