I'd say about time. People need to move on and get with the times.

Be nice if they also updated WoW to make more efficient use of modern hardware, 45% GPU usage with average FPS at 45 with a 1080 Ti is horrendous.

They will never update it with all the eye candy because the biggest selling point of WoW (LoL, and similar) is that it will run on almost anything. If they gave it Wildlands' requirements no one would play it. But dropping older windows' i approve. Microsoft dropped them long ago.

You missed the point bud, It's not about adding more eye candy, It's about WoW taking advantage of what's available, Here's an example, Everything maxed at 1440P and CPU usage is at 6% and GPU usage was at 37%, That's with no addons or anything enabled which resulted in a low FPS of 56, If WoW took advantage of hardware a bit more the FPS would be higher and make for a smoother experience, Especially in raids.

About time Blizz

Also - anyone out there reading this playing WoW Legion on a Ryzen5/7+Nvidia build? Hard to find good reviews. Tossing up swapping from a 6600k to a Ryzen build.

Friend of mine has his 7700K at 5GHz paired with a 1080 Ti, And according to both our tests my 1800X paired with the 1080 Ti is quite a bit ahead especially in cities.

Cool, my 6600k is running at 4.2ghz and I have a windforce oc 980 running at 1420mhz, in most places it's perfectly fine with almost everything max'd out (except water and shadows) in most areas except the really "lush" areas of Val'sharah and in Suramar city which I'll go from a steady 60+ to mid/low 40s.
