WoW PC recommendation

Hey all,

  I was wondering if anyone could share their system specs and video settings. I just installed a GTX1080 about a week ago with an older i7-3770K and for the most part I'm seeing frame rates above 60 at 10 settings and 1920 x 1080 resolution. However, in certain areas like Suramar, standing at the flight master at Meredil and facing Suramar city where you see the water and the trees and the city in the background, my frame rate drops to 35-40.

  Is anyone seeing similar frame rates? The GPU seems to only be at 30% power so I'm not sure if adding a second one would help. The CPU doesn't seem loaded up either. Would it help to upgrade to a 6700K or a 6850K? How about another graphics card?

 

Anyone with any input or experience to share is appreciated.

I'm not enough of a computer whizz to actually help with your issue, but if it helps, I'm running 2x 980s, an i7-4770 and everything runs at 60+ for me except Dalaran sewer. Nothing runs that place properly :(

Perhaps there are certain settings you can turn down that won't affect visuals much, but will cut down the required power? Hopefully someone can help!

I don’t think that the CPU or GPU should be the problem. What’s the ram usage? And how much memory do the add-ons take? Look if there’s a difference between where you’ve the problems and where you don’t. You also could try to reduce the graphic settings a little bit and see if that changes something (if not you at least know its not the GPU). Do you have frame drops when there are more people around? Like in Raids etc.? If not it could just be that the suramare region is poorly implemented when it comes to hardware optimization

I'm running i5 6600K with 8Gb RAM, AMD Radeon R9 380 and Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB as a Hard Drive.

Don't have any WoW issues, can raid Mythic and stream, have fps between 60-90 in every place (30 fps in the Underbelly but I'm not into PvP so normally not coming there).

Good point Erel. It's also worth noting that I have 4x8GB HyperX RAM. Just in addition to the stats from above.

Hey all thanks for the replies.

I don't really see frame rate drops when there's more people around. It's more specific areas. Suramar at the Meredil flight master facing towards the city I get 40 FPS. I have everything maxed and my GPU is down clocked (it will clock up or down based on load) to 1200 from 1700 max and using 20% power and 40% of its rendering capability at that frequency. I can get the frame rates up but it's frustrating having a GPU that's not even loaded up and having to lower settings.

 

If I go to 7 on view distance and environment details then the FPS will go to 60+. If I leave them at 10 and I change shadows to low then the FPS will go to 50+. Highmountain the FPS stays at 60+ with all settings cranked. I have 16 gigs of RAM too.

 

Anyone out there running everything maxed and can check their FPS at the Suramar Meredil flight master facing the city? Maybe even go stand on the little bridge by the water. When I do this there are maybe 3 or 4 people in the area.

I would say check your addons first. I was having problems in Dal when hearthing or loading into then i turned off my cosmetic addons like sexymap and all the problems went away.

      A reddit user shared some highlights of his exploration of Vanilla, TBC and WotLK using a variety of tricks.
       
      A lot of us who've played Vanilla at some point went and visited Hyal by suiciding through the inactive raid portal, but there were other ways to creatively explore the world around as well. Redditor jarrodnb recently remembered his time in TBC/early WotLK and how he would use the jump bug (where you wouldn't fall off a slope, regardless of how steep it was, if you timed it just right), among other things, to take a look at some of the less often seen vistas and quite a few secrets hidden away behind terrain (remember, at the time you could only fly in Outland, so a lot of these vantage points may seem normal to you, but were very special back then).
      There's a whole album of his exploits (both in the "game breaking" and  the "interesting things he did" sense) and you should really give it a look, as it has interesting comments about the zones and how he got there and plays out like one big story. Here are some highlights:

      " I had always wondered where Nightbane was before he flew onto the balcony"

      "Next up, I had heard about the early "outland" hidden away in VC."

      "Looks like an early version of Howling Fjord is tucked away inside UK. I can't believe how many secrets are hidden away inside the instanced versions of dungeons"

      I eventually worked up the courage to actually explore GM island, so I busted out my old "bridge" file. One of my "mates" said in "type /who gm island" in trade chat, I was spammed with randoms asking how I got there. I quickly logged off in terror.
       
      Big thanks to jarrodnb for sharing (part of) his exploration journey and reminding us of our own exploration attempts (even if it was just swimming around the edges of the continents)!

      Patch 7.1.5 brings new Artifact Knowledge catch-up options for both mains and alts.
      We'll be able to catch up on Artifact Knowledge in Patch 7.1.5 using Order Resources.
      The main source of Order Resources is the Blood of Sargeras trader in Dalaran. You can buy Order Resources Cache that will give 200 Order Resources for one Blood of Sargeras. Bloods are farmed via World Quests and Heroic+ dungeons.
      Main Characters
      A new quest was added to your Class Hall called Knowledge is Power. You need to turn in 500 Order Resources to get Artifact Research Synopsis.  The quest is repeatable and can be completed until you reach Artifact Knowledge level 15. After that you will need to place work orders as usual. A total of 7,500 Order Resources is thus required to reach said AK level. That's 37.5 Bloods of Sargeras.

      Alts
      Depending on the Artifact Knowledge level of your main, you can purchase research compendiums and mail them to your alts. These items are bound to your Battle.net account.
      Artifact Research Compendium: Volume I Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-III Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV As an example, if you have Artifact Knowledge Level 15, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I & II for 1,000 Order Resources. I think every 5 levels of Artifact Knowledge will unlock a new compendium. If you use the item without any research documents, you instantly reach Artifact Knowledge level 10 (it's like that on PTR right now).
