World of Warcraft

World Of Warcraft Legion

Following recent events in the Broken Isles, a link has been created between Azeroth and Kil'jaeden's homeworld of Argus, bringing the Burning Legion closer than ever to destroying Azeroth. In order to stop them once and for all, Illidan and Velen are taking the war directly to the surface of Argus, where they hope to join forces with Alleria, Turalyon, and the Army of the Light to launch an all-out assault on the Legion's primary base of operations.

Additional Comments

I can't comment on performance beyond my own experience, I have a very strong system, my performance values may not be representative.

I'm getting between 30-130 fps on 10 (Ultra) settings throughout. In raids, my fps is consistently above 20fps but below 60fps, regardless of quality settings, so there seems to be a CPU limitation.

In my opinion it should get Platinum and not Gold, since the problems I've come across are either trivial or out of scope, but these exceptions are not defined in the Rating definitions, so I'll stick with Gold.

Tested on wine-2.21 (Staging), 4.14.13-1-ARCH, Nvidia 387.34, Gnome-Shell (X11)
