13 posts in this topic

Redditor CorneliusKap shared a method that fixes long logging screens for Dalaran.

The Dalaran login screen takes ages we all know it. Here's a method that will help you dramatically reduce loading times.

  • In the Battle.net Launcher, navigate to General Settings
  • You will see Advanced Settings at the very bottom.
  • Disable "Use browser hardware acceleration when available"

Now you should see improved logging screens in capital cities.

I don't know why this works but it works. I assumed my terrible load times were due to my old computer and running wow on an external hd.

Nice catch!

Will apply it to see how fast it will get.

Btw, what will be the effect of it in game?

Thank you so much! WoW used to take so long to load into Dalaran that I would get disconnected, now I can load into Dalaran in seconds!

Normally the Dalaran loading screen gets stuck at 100% and i have to close WoW and relaunch to get it to work.   WIth this method it still takes the same amount of time, but i dont have to relaunch WoW!   :D

this works but only for couple of hours.I got same issue since patch 7.1 - long loading times and ctrl-alt-del after every HS/teleport, so I turned off streaming 4 day ago, it helped but ater next  ~24 hours it was all back again.

What really helped me and many ppl was decreasing view distance down from 10 in game settings. I've set view distance from 10 to 4 and it decreased loading times for me significantly (down from 4-5 minutes to couple of seconds).Other players reported that decrease from 10 to 7 worked for them too.
It seems like the game is pre-loading the entire zone every time we change location/use portal/HS if v.d. setting is set to max 10 distance, so it causes problems for players with MAX on and w/o SSD disc.

Changing "use browser hardware accelaration when available" to Disable helped me not much. It helps me only to not needed relaunch wow at 100% loading screen.

      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.

      This week's 7.2.5 PTR patch added a new tracking quest (fix?) for the undiscovered Shoe Shine Kit vanity item.
      Shoe Shine Kit is one of the few items that haven't been discovered yet and it should be available in the game since Legion launch. Every Sunday, 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, but nobody managed to open it yet. The WoW community has cracked down mysteries far harder than this, which is why I believe the chest couldn't be opened until now and Blizzard stealth fixed this in the latest PTR build by adding a new tracking quest related to the toy - Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.  Notice the different ID in the old quest -  Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.

      7.0 Dalaran - Shoe Shiner Disappear Guess we'll have to wait and see until midnight if someone's able to obtain the toy on PTR. If this proves to be true, redditor Wobbelblob could have been right all along!
      Comment from discussion Still a mystery: Every Sunday morning (tonight) Sheddle Glossgleam leaves behind a chest that nobody has unlocked.
