Re: [Internet] High latency in world of warcraft

Wow's p2p downloader is only active when actively patching, otherwise it's not running.

If your game however is damaged and needs repairing while in-game, the repair on demand (ie a direct download from a CDN, ala Netflix) will kick in and download good copies of images that are corrupted on your system.. This setting is set by default to use up to 33% of your internet connection's total bandwidth, but is required so the game engine doesn't crash from the corrupted images.

If the repair on demand is kicking in and causing a problem, log out of wow. Open the Launcher, open last option in the menu bar - should be "Help" or something. Last option at the bottom should be Repair Game. Run that. It's the out of game repair...

If you run that every once in a while, you shouldn't get the in-game repair on demand running as often, affecting your gameplay.
