    I play on Troll-bane.
    Alliance 80 Shaman and DK, several 60's as well. If Blizzard give me the name change (the accounts are all mine but back when I made the accounts, I never realised you could have more than 1 account and made random names up), I plan to join all the accounts together and start doing the 'Recruit-A-System' and get all classes to level 60.

    Since I've stopped playing I cant check myself.

    But anyone wanna put up a comparsion-shot between highest graphic-setting pre 3.1 and the new Ultra mode?

    How do you activate this ultra mode? Patch seriously messed with a lot of things, moved around a lot of the Dk's talent tree and changed some of my items models for an unknown reason plus most of the addons dont work :(

    Pre 3.1 2560x1600 8xAA - 135fps
    Post 3.1 (Ultra) 2560x1600 8xAA - 54fps

    Seems to make a big performance hit. I can't quite make out if the graphics are better or whether it's just my eyes! Some areas i think the textures seem a hell of a lot sharper, others look the same

    Perhaps when i hit lvl 60 and head to the outlands (where the graphics are apparently better) i will notice more of a change

    Would be good to hear other peoples opinions?

    I think most of you are missing the point, the Ultra mode just means that all ingame settings are maxed out, the slider that lets you adjust the mode is just a collection of preset graphics options for quicker configuration for the computer illiterate people.

    In other words if you've already maxed out all ingame settings, then you are in Ultra mode. As for the performance hits, i noticed that upping the player texture resolution had a pretty negative impact on my framerates and i saw feck all change in visual quality really so i left it to low. Theres also a new higher setting for the shadows wich i can imagine hurting performance a fair bit aswell since the shadows always were quite the performance hog to begin with.

    I think that was pretty obvious matey? You can either slide the bar to "ultra" or manually change each setting to the max, both do the same thing

    i find it hard to believe people wouldn't be able to work that out, surely it's common sense?

    Expect the fps to dive again when you get to outlands, it doesn't even look that much better just worse performance.

    With everything maxed I get 60fps pretty constantly in most places in azeroth but in outlands it drops to 20-30fps. Doesn't make sense because wow isn't exactly very amazing graphically (I get 20-30 fps with crysis on very high settings and look at the difference in visual quality lol). Bad engine optimization I guess. Bumping the view distance down a couple of places helps a lot and doesn't have too much impact on quality.

    I consider the change to Fel Synergy (Warlock, demonology) a nuke of the spec. It sucks :(
