Looks great at 40 fps on ultra. Mine is setting on high at about 80 fps while doing dailies. Haven't tried to run on ultra yet. I'm afraid my gfx card might have a hernia.

80 fps does you no good unless you're running a 120hz monitor.

If your FPS is higher than your refresh rate at any time, your monitor will not actually be able to display all of these frames

You'll more than likely get better results (if you've got a 60hz monitor) at 60 fps and vsync enabled.

Or adaptive vsync for later Nvidia cards. My personal preference.

I don't get that quote. It's misleading. A 60hz monitor most definately will display over 60fps (if your GPU has the horsepower to do so). But since only running at 60hz refresh rate, that's where screen tearing will show up. A 120hz monitor is the remedy.

I can push upwards of 90-100fps in some games, but I'll get massive screen tearing as a result.

Screen tearing can result from running higher than 60 fps on a 60Hz only panel.. At 60 or less it is fine. You can enable vsync to alleviate this.

The problem with vync is that you can only sync at 30 or 60 fps so with it on and the fps drops below 60 fps you will get 30.

Adaptive vsync changes that. It is not limited to 30 fps or other multiple. Much better but only newer Nvidia cards have this feature as far as I know.

Personally I do not see a need to run higher than 60 fps especially for a game like WoW. Then there is the fact that there are no 120Hz displays with IPS panels (that I have seen anyway) which is a deal killer for me. I'm strictly an IPS panel guy! 60 fps is perfectly fine.

There's hope for you...if you feel comfortable overclocking your monitor, paying $550 for it, and waiting in line for months to get one.

Some of these UI's look pretty good. Funny part for me is that ive played this game since right around release, and i have never used anything but the basic WoW UI. I tend to not use addons either cept DBM and atlas loot. I have used some addons in the past when blizz didnt have a combo tracker, or when spriest rotation required pefect clippings of mind flays...

Funny part about it is that when i was in a top guild, they almost denied me for lack of UI customization and addon support. Until i competed against the other spriests in a trial run and blew them away (with less gear mind you). I think if i was involved in more PVP i would be hindered with all the addons now that basically tell you what move to do when....What happened to the nostalgia of early pvp when you had to guess if CD's where off or when entering and arena match you had no idea what comp you were facing until you saw them? Oh well...old schooler i guess...

So.... wait....

What addon do you think tells you what to do in PvP and when to do it? I want it.

Secondly... you use DBM... and are complaining about PvP addons that tell you what to do?

I do not believe you have the experience to back up your claims.

said by liquoranne:

Because abilities didn't have visuals back then?

To clarify/explain my PvP addons.

LoseControl:
Shows me the CC and the remaining duration used on players. Nothing is automated, nothing is suggested.

GladiatorLOS:
Virbally announced enemy abilities used. Nothing is automated, nothing is suggested.

WeakAuras:
Extremely powerful addon limited to your game knowledge. I have it setup to display a more easily viewed icon when certain proc reliant abilities are useable. This allows me to keep my eyes on the center of the screen. Nothing is automated, nothing is suggested.

There are no "if" statments like you seem to believe.

I'll send it over, hopefully this time it won't have the page breaks.

Additionally, for the string I sent over there's a tab that allows the addon to only turn on with certain player names. So when you're on your Druid/Monk/Rogue etc you don't have to see the Warrior string. Just input the name of your warrior on the tab.

I only run DBM because it is pretty much required in any raid group. Try running a PuG without DBM and 9 times outta 10 they will tell you to either download it or leave the group (9 outta 10 is a guess...please feel free to use your infinite knowledge to disect this too troll). As for experience, what is your reference? PvE or PvP? Cause if its PvP you are more than likely correct as i have never been involved in heavy PvP. Now with PvE, i have been in a top 100 world guild back in WotLK with a top 5 Spriest parse.

"Because abilities didn't have visuals back then?"
Not every CD has a visual cue. Take trinkets for example.

"Rose colored glasses anyone?"

Yes i miss the days of open world PvP. As i am not a fan of arena since BC.

When i referenced an addon telling you what to hit and when to hit it, i wasnt really trying to be serious. It was meant as a slight metaphore to all the addons that are now available to people. I did not bash others, like yourself, for using them. I just stated i do not like using addons so would suffer in rated PvP.

purist play is commendable right up until a thinly veiled insult (through gross oversimplification... possibly due to ignorance) to those who've maximized their play, through careful UI customization, rears its ugly head.

The "argument" is silly, given that we aren't talking about a guild application, nor the merits of taking a UI into consideration in the application process.

now then... lets see some more UI screencaps!

You're missing my point.

You use DBM, yet criticize supposedly automated addons in PvP.

First, those addons don't exist.

Second, DBM is as close to one of those addons you refer to as possible, making you appear as a hypocrite.

Nobody tells me the fire phase is coming ni 10 seconds.

Or that the Warrior is going to Recklessness + Shockwave in the next 5 seconds. Please someone make me a PvP DBM.

I see.

And here I thought trinkets had a visual... Silly me.

I accept this sarcastic criticism. As we both know, there's tons I don't know about WoW. However, I don't make claims about the things I don't have a clue about. And I correct those who are spreading incorrect information. Stone me.

again, to be clear. Not trying to sound elitist because i use the base UI. Its just a preference of mine as i do not mind "stock" if its function is adequate. I have seen some UI's that are aesthetically pleasing. Removal of clutter and organization of bars/tools.

I wasnt trying to start a debate based on my preferences. Cant help that some people live their life on trying to disect other comments to prop up their own confidence.

So agree, more UIs.

Liquoranne, unlike Immer you fail to see what was being debated.

I absolutely 100% don't care if you use or don't use addons. I actually prefer a very clean, low resource UI as a minimalist myself.

This was solely directed at the below comment:

said by liquoranne:

Showing that you don't know about PvP, and don't know about addons but willing to criticize both.

That is all.

Buddy...your missing my point.

I said it was meant as a slight metaphore. Mainly i stated such after hearing about addons that automatically point out healers in BGs. Never knew such a thing existed until recently (havent touched WoW in over a year). You need to jump off your "protect pvp" wagon for a second and realize that no where in my statement did i attach pvpers or people that want UI's/Addons. I simply stated i would be at a disadvantage in pvp because i do not use them.

Would i be at a disadvantage in raids without DBM? Yes....yes i would. As knowing when and how to position a boss while tanking is critical and DBM helps a ton here.

So...chillax. Its a game and a comment. Your soap box isnt needed.

Lol Jobbie.

Only players that have the addon can see the cross.

The addon should put a cross above ENEMY healers, not friendly however maybe that's an option.

This way, the idea is that your team can focus enemy healers, hence the "Healersmustdie".
