I really dont know anything about graphics engine, so if anyone can technically explain why is WoW running so good on all sorts on computers. I heard that WoW dev team is upgrading wows graphics every know and then, but it is still 10year old engine.
To me, WoW looks really great, lately is was flying a lot all over the continents and beauty of them are really astonishing.
I saw GW2 and Rift and their graphics look miles behind Wow. Also, in Rift , character movement looks so artificial (like they are gliding on terrain), while WoWs char animation looks so realistic.
Played SWTOR also, and aside long loading times, its graphics (engine) is so demanding for even modern computers.
Noticed one more thing - all those games benefit much more from CPU upgrading than GPU upgrade. Why is that so?
