Has anyone else been really laggy?
I'm noticing that i'm having to /reload at every NPC. I'm not able to complete/accept. Many of the text boxes are kind of grey'd out. So, for example - the background of the text box is Dark Grey while the Text is Black - so it's very hard to read. I suspect it may be an add on, but if I let the computer just sit there for about 30 seconds - the box returns to "Normal"
Also, Action Bar items are not appearing. Nor are Bank or Bag items. The Map ("M") also does not appear. The flight points are all marked out, but the map, names, and locations (?) are all missing.
Either waiting for 30sec - 1minute will resolve this... or I can /reload.
But i'm finding that i'm /reloading every 2 minutes or so.
*Edit - It's not like when a UI mod is malfunctioning... In those cases stuff just doesn't work. In this case, it's sort of like lag, but it's extremely bad... And the weird thing is that there isn't really an lag elsewhere. The other "normal lag" exists. But it's nothing special. Mobs may hit twice or appear to 'jump' forward from time to time, but it's not too common or too bad. These things just happen.

Just to start the launcher I have to reboot - every day. Without /reload ui, I can't click on most npc's, my bags open under my action bars, and I've lost a more than a few ore nodes because I wasn't able to mine them and somebody else swooped in. Working on quests, I can't loot unless I have a pile of dead bodies to aoe loot. Just small, minor, really annoying crap. :P
I would assume crz is responsible for most of it, aside from the launcher, but I thought the Pandaren areas were exempt from crz til things died down after the launch. I like a lot of stuff about this expansion, but this sort of thing is ruining it for me.
Edit: As I reread my post, I think I shouldn't have said ruining it
for me. It's more me getting po'd than total disgust, and I'm sure the bugs and kinks will be worked out eventually. Blizzard's timing of crz within a month of the new expansion was not good. Edited, Sep 27th 2012 1:16pm by Vorkosigan
