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.

Really late on this one, only just saw the reply from OP. Will test what you asked for and update.

      Yesterday, I wrote about updates to the Shoe Shine Kit toy and how its tracking quest got stealth fixed in the latest 7.2.5 PTR build.
      The toy was unavailable until now, because Blizzard simply forgot to fix it and the chest could not be opened. 
      Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns that contains the toy - Shoe Shine Kit. Only one person may loot it, because it will disappear afterwards. The toy makes shoes sparkle. There are still items in the game that haven't been discovered yet, such as the Fishing Artifact appearance The Broken Hook and more.

      In addition to pets coming with the Deadmines Pet Battle Dungeon, the latest 7.2.5 PTR build added two pets that drop from the Time-Lost Wallet inside the Deaths of Chromie Scenario and our friends over at WarcraftPets seem to have discovered a new fairie dragon pet possibly from Argus.
      Ageless Bronze Drake (Ageless Bronze Drake)
      The pet is a miniature version of the Reins of the Bronze Drake mount and has a unique Rewind Time ability "This particular drake has oddly retained its age throughout its travels, but its size has certainly changed."
      Bronze Proto-Whelp (Bronze Proto-Whelp)
      The pet's a miniature version of the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake (Storm Peaks) mount and comes with the an ability to bend time "The Bronze Proto-Whelps have been discovered only in the most peculiar of timelines."
      Sun Darter Hatchling - Faerie Dragon Pet
      Quintessence from WarcraftPets suggests this pet may be from Argus as noted by its description. If you try to paste the item in-game (Patch 7.2), it seems to coincide with a mount tagged named as "REUSE", however 7.2.5 Mount Journal lists the pet and so does the in-game tooltip.

      Sun Darter Hatchling drops from Oddly-Colored Egg (Source N/A) "This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth."

      Nether Disruptor is again up in both regions and with Seal Your Fate, you can get a free Seal of Broken Fate each day the Nether Disruptor is active.
      The good news is that these bonus seals go beyong the normal 3 limit. All you need to do is accept the quest Fate Sealed from Maggie "Slither" Masterson (coords: 41.19 // 64.46).
      World Boss Apocron

      The permanent Nether Disruptor perk (Epic Hunter) always unlocks a Broken Shore World Boss that drops item level 900 loot and this time, it's Apocron. Below is the loot he drops.

      Four new bosses were added to the Broken Shore. Base item level of their loot is 890+. Old world bosses remain untouched with 860+ loot. The bosses will spawn when the Nether Disruptor's active.
      Patch 7.2 World Boss Loot Tables
      Below you can find loot from the new world bosses. We don't know yet if they share respawn timers with existing world bosses.

      Several Serenity members joined Method recently, but it doesn't seem to be the end. Slootbag confirmed on Twitch that some Serenity members (Naguura included) are forming a new guild for Mythic Tomb of Sargeras progression on Twisting Nether (EU - Horde), but haven't decided the name just yet.
      According to a reddit post, they won't be competing for world firsts and instead, they're looking for a place in the Top 10 - 20. Time commitments will be 50% less than what they were in Serenity and each raider only needs to maintain 2 geared characters (down from 5).
      The guild will still be hardcore and raid 7 days a week (6 hours a day) during the first weeks of ToS progression. The roster's only missing healers and recruitment may be open soon.
