WoW PC recommendation

Recommended Posts

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.

      Chaoswithinx cleared Torghast's Upper Reaches Layer 8 under 5 minutes and shared a video of their clear.
      The player started speed-running Torghast and managed to find out some crazy strategies, which they used to clear Layer 8 in 4 minutes and 56 seconds with a Marksmanship Hunter. Congrats on the run!

      While advertising boost sales in the chat channels is not against ToS, it is very annoying and by now comprises the majority of all chat that we see in the game. This is without even mentioning the Group Finder spam, which IS against ToS, is constantly being reported, but it's still there, clogging everything up and making legitimate runs harder to find (but has gotten a little better since the ban).
      Luckily there's some solutions, none of them perfect, that can help out.
      Chat Channel Spam Solutions
      There's a very new addon by rowaasr13 called SR13-AntiSpam, which works on the chat channels and using pattern recognition:
      Then there's EasyFilter, which has a lot of advanced filtering options, but hasn't been updated in quite a while (but still works).
      Group Finder
      LFGSpamFilter is a relatively simple one as well and also offers very simple reporting options.
      The Premade Groups Filter addon may not have been made with this purpose in mind, but it helps! The issue is there's a lot of input needed from the player, as you'll have to enter the filters yourselves, and the sellers tend to use non-standard wording so not everything can be filtered out. You can check out some more details on how to use it here, or try some simple filters like this one suggested by chymmi:
      Bad Boy
      We've talked about this one before and it covers both above categories, is an excellent all-rounder with its Group Finder and chat channel coverage, but it's also been known to miss a lot of entries. But it's definitely worth having, as it's the least fuss and gets at least some stuff out of the way.
       
      The only ultimate solution is to install most/all of these and hope they can clean things up enough to make it tolerable, although it seems unlikely we can get rid of all of it, as boosting is a part of WoW now and isn't going anywhere, and whenever there's real money to be made, you can be sure people will push way too far and not go away any time soon.

      Here we are in Castle Nathria week 7! Things have stabilized after the tuning pass from two weeks ago and we can get a proper look at the situation in the raid, as the headline is Feral climbing up very high! So we'll be taking a look at the spec, as our class guide writer talks about it and we'll also check out Elemental.
      The hardly played specs for this week are the usual suspects, as Survival leads the pack with 132 logs and only Assassination is anywhere close to as low, with 275, as the other not-so-much-played hover in the 600-900 range, as Frost DK, Demonology and Arcane also didn't get much Mythic play. For comparison, the most played specs (Marksmanship and Fire) have 57,000 and 45,000 logs.
      In the actual rankings we can see that Fire has surpassed Windwalker, as Feral and Arcane jumped a whole lot as well (although considering the low number of logs, that might just be an anomaly)!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Feral Druid by Wordup:
      Elemental Shaman by Stormy:

      And finally, let's take a look at the Heroic data as well, as there are a lot more logs present there and while the very top looks somewhat similar to Mythic, the rest is pretty jumbled.

      With the second potency conduits unlocked for many companions, the options have also opened up significantly and players are now much more likely to want to swap their Soulbind than before.
      Luckily, while you still have to be at a Sanctum Forge to change your Conduits, you can actually switch your Soulbinds in any resting area! Whether it's the main Torghast hall, any random inn or similar, you can swap away at your leisure! You can even swap it at the Torghast vendors or with the Kyrian Steward!
      You just head to your Covenant screen (next to your minimap) and select your current Soulbind to access the menu:

      You can also select different trees on this screen, and while you still can't change the specific Conduits, you can still swap them around a little on your pre-set trees, which could help (a little) with the same Soulbind for off-spec problem.

      An even easier way to swap is if you're changing spec, if you have a different Soulbind on the different spec, it'll automatically switch to it as well.
      While a lot of you may have known this already, hopefully it will help out at least a few players and avoid some Sanctum return-trips.

      According to the latest player reports, Legacy raid scaling is still bugged two months after Shadowlands release.
      A lot of players enjoy soloing old raids, be it for transmog, pets, and mounts. The problem with Shadowlands and Legacy content is that players cannot solo encounters that were easily soloable back in Battle for Azeroth.
      We're now 2 expansions behind Legion, and players are incapable of soloing Mythic Nighthold, especially with getting "The Demon Within" down before being overwhelmed by the stuns and exponentially increasing damage from Parasitic Wounds. What is more, it's complicated finding groups for Legacy raids these days, so one would assume it makes sense to make content easier rather than more difficult.
      In multiple interviews before the pre-patch squish, Blizzard mentioned we should be able to solo bosses that we could solo before the squish.
      Card
      Some players were doing N'Zoth, and due to scaling, the raid leader refused to invite more players to the group because it would not be easy to defeat BfA's final boss.
      Card
      Mackpack thinks the current trend is a clear departure from how Legacy content worked for the last 6 years. In Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard apparently introduced a hidden buff that allowed players that overleveled content by more than 10 levels to solo bosses quickly, but something went awry with 9.0 scaling.

      What has your experience been with soloing Legacy content in Shadowlands so far?
