Hello Maniac!

If you are getting low FPS, that would have to do with your hardware. Not the server itself.

You may want to ensure your GPU drivers are up to date. That may help!

FYI: I used to get horrendous (sub 45FPS) framerates on any setting, regardless of resolution. The first thing I did was disable all addons. Then enable them, one after the other. Testing each time.

My FPS hit was quickly traced to PowerAuras. With it installed I was getting 45FPS. With it uninstalled I was getting 145FPS. On ultra.

Check your addons. Some of them will be killing your performance. GearScore is another FPS hog. Try searching for GearScore Lite instead.

Hello!

Great tip for anyone else having this issue!

Have you tried running the client as Administrator to see if that helps? Sometimes weird things like that can make a difference.
