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

Running GTX660 on one machine, GTX960 on another with similar results. The 660 is perhaps a little more stable running than the more powerful card though. Settings around 5 or 6, particle density on low, sunshafts off, lighting good. Set to DX9 in - both machines are SSD and 16GB ram, the GTX 960 is on and i7 rig, the GTX 660 is on an i5 Gameplay is fine in most places, with some of the registry tweaks prior to 2.3 installing it was buttery smooth with good FPS and minimal dropout in places like raids and Dalaran. 2.2 and 2.3 changed this though. 80+ fps in open world, 40-60fps in towns but drops out to 18-25 in the strangest of places. Raids can be fine but more often than not will also end up dropping out (Trilliax dropped to 4fps before recovering) Changing to DX11 though seems more more stable and smooth. I have not had a chance to try a raid with it but it appears to limit to 60fps (I have tried foreground limits at 80 and 100fps, no change). I don't have vsync enabled anywhere. So far I have not seen any of the typical FPS drop outs in the same places as on DX9. Flying is smooth, fast looking around doesn't bog down. If this is a taste of things to come and WoW can run well on DX11 then I will be very happy. I ended up installing a W10 on dual boot because the FPS issues were again becoming too difficult to ignore.
