Lately I have been lagging like hell. I mean it, with the flames and the devil and everything. Damn hell. I was wondering whether or not this is caused by the amount of RAM I have. My current compy has around 512 megs, and last night i froze in ironforge for 10 whole minutes. 10 WHOLE MINUTES!!! :mad:

HorîZoNMaybe you have some spyware or adware running in the background. Check your proccess and run a system scan for spyware to see if you can clean it up a bit. I'd also check your mods folder, delete any you're not using because they can suck up your RAM.

Good tip. I erased all mods to see if it made a difference, and it ran a lot smoother. Ironforge is still as bad as ever though. I will be more selective with mods in future. Now I'm off to buy more RAM. :D

Ironforge lags so bad for me I end up falling in the pits. Stupid mapping idea :( I have two interface mods installed but they dont really make a difference to the lag. I disabled my firewall because it added around 500 to my ping. (this only happens with WoW, nothing else)

Anyhow I usually get a ping somewhere in the 250's - 500's. And that rises above 1000 when things get horribly serious, but they rarely happens.

This gets me wondering, is ping the same as latency?

Indeed, because of the stupid game placing all their international servers in America, all us queer overseas guys get horrible Latency :(

I'll try disabling my Firewall though next time.

Apparently they're bringing out Pacific servers soon though :)

If they don't bring out pacific/aus servers, then I wonder why you people still bother to pay for the game...
