FPS/Crashing Issues

pretty much every since Mists dropped I've been having these huge FPS issues that sometimes result in crashes.

It happens, invariably, when I hearth into Shrine of Two Moons and most of the time when use the translocation orb between Undercity and Silvermoon, though with the latter it miraculously resolved by the time I hit the center of the fountain in Court of the Sun. Walking or flying into those locations from the surrounding areas is fine, usually.

And I'm talking huge problems - it drops from 50 down .8 or so FPS while I try to move/change my camera angle. (I wish I was exaggerating.) I do not have this problem anywhere else, at all, ever.

My guildie told me to turn down SSAO, which I did - hell, I've even set my entire settings to low when I can play on ultra everywhere else, and it's still giving me fits and crashing.

My google-fu isn't solving anything, and I know of at least two friends who have the same issues.

Do you ladies know of a solution?

Morning ladies!

MGM "lion"

And just like that, it's Monday AND December!

Everyone adjusting to patch 5.1 okay? All your mods updating promptly, or you find some that need replacing?

Screen shots? Wish lists? What's up in the world of UIs, mods, and addons today?

Pimping an Add-On

If this isn't legal, please delete.

My significant other, an amazing Prot/Holy Paladin I met while playing WoW, and moved halfway across the country to marry, writes add-ons. This one is not new, but he constantly gets compliments on it and I just wanted to do a little pimping because despite it's simplicity, I couldn't live without it.

The add-on is called HowMany.

I'll summarize what it does here:

This simple add-on modifies loot messages. When you loot an item, the loot message will now say "You received [item link]. You now have xx." It can also tell you your new total funds when you loot money. Each of these functions can be independently enabled or disabled.

Configuration is available through the Blizzard Add-on configuration pages.

HowMany does not do processing for conjured or created items, due to a Blizzard bug. Sometimes the item is created in inventory before the add-on is called and sometimes after, so there is no easy way to accurately give correct totals.

Updated the code to work with new Blizzard currency types. Should work now with Honor Points, Archaeology fragments, Marks of the World Tree, etc.

It's really quite simple. I used to herb/mine/skin with my bags open, to see how many stacks or items I had of each herb/ore etc. Now, I get this message (or one like it) in my chat box:


Now I can see how many I have of something without running around with my bags open to keep track. Simple, but effective.

This works with all tokens in-game (valor, justice, marks of the world tree, conquest, honor, etc...all crafting mats such as ore, herbs, name it). I'm not sure we've come across anything it doesn't keep count of. It's just a nice way of keeping track of what you have without opening your character window or your bags to check.

Again, if this is not allowed, please delete. I completely understand. Thanks for listening!

Coming back to WoW...WA or Proudmoore

I quite my old band so a huge chunk of free time has opened up which means I can play WoW again. Completely starting from scratch. I just rolled a panda priest on WA. My question is Horde or Allie? I'm not into rp, but I like the flavor it adds to the world when I see it around. Horde seems to have more events on WA from what I see here. Is that correct? Any guild recommendations? I like taking leveling slow, achievements, and just playing for fun. Eventual raiding, but not in a stressful way.

My other server choice was Proudmoore. I like the open community there, but it is a much faster paced environment.

How are the Alliance/ Horde story lines these days? Is one storyline going in a more interesting direction?
