    Why is BFA going to fix things? Are they finally going to rebuild the entire visual engine and allow multithreading and wow to take advantage of SLI, etc etc?
    There is literally no word on whether or not BfA will fix things. That's just his "hope" in Blizzard. I hoped in them to fix it in 7.1 like they said. Anddddddd, they didn't.

Your context is WoW, so let's stay there...

    A 32" monitor is fine for WoW. I play it on one every single night. More room for addons.
    You fail to mention what settings you're running it at. I'm guessing Medium.

    I have a GTX1080 and I can't run the game on Ultra at 1440p, 60+ FPS. So stop lying.

    And yeah, the GTX1060 is fine for 1440p. I used to play WoW at 1440p on a GTX770 at 60fps and the GTX1060 is much faster than that. WoW isn't a particularly difficult game to run.
    Once again. What settings? He wants it to look good. Not Medium at 1440p.

    My calculations suggest me, that such big monitor should be viewed from 24" or 60 centimeters distance in order to fit into your field of view. Do you really need such big monitor? That's, why advantages of such big monitors - are just a pure marketing. They're good for work (fit more things), but terrible for playing games. That's why I still have old 19" 4:3 monitor for playing games - because it perfectly fits into my field of view while viewing it from optimal distance.
    We play RPG - not adventure and/or platformer, like Tomb Rider or Assassin's Creed.
    Blizzard should either remove features, that don't fit into RPG genre, or enable flying to avoid them for players, who don't like them.
    Flying - is like ability to turn PVP-flag off. It allows devs to design content purely for "PVPers" without risk of harming "PVEers".

    I'm using a 40" 4K monitor and find it excellent for WoW. Rather have stunning enveloping picture than super high FPS (which as you might know is hard to achieve in some scenarios, given limits in the old game engine's way of handling things).

    That said 1440p on 32" means somewhat larger pixels than usual. Things might look a bit fuzzy. I'd bet on 27" being a better sweet spot for 1440p.

    tbh anything above 27" i guess would be kinda overkill in my opinion, but if you want one, get it

    Sounds like you have a shit machine, then. I run it on Ultra, depending on what I'm doing. I sometimes turn it down for things like Alterac Valley. Will post a screenshot when I get home this afternoon with a FPS counter.

    Stop lying about your GTX1080 if you can't run WoW higher than 60 FPS on a QHD resolution.

    I run Destiny 2 on Ultra with 100+ FPS, so I'm not sure if you actually believe you're telling the truth?

    4K won‘t work with my GTX1060 the way I want the game to be I think. I want beautiful scenes, high fps and stunning colors.

    So would you recommend me a 32” Monitor then?
    If you want stunning graphics you are playing the wrong game, you can pretty much run WoW on a toaster...

    Nope, it doesn't look fuzzy at all. I prefer my 32" to my previous 27".

    Wow is more processor intensive than graphics intensive. I have a 27" 4K monitor running on a GTX 980 Ti, playing WoW on Ultra. It is beautiful.

    Yeah, I have a GTX1080 and I run the game absolutely 100% maxed out at 1440p and usually run capped at 144 fps (my monitor is 144Hz). In raids it will drop down to 75 fps or so when the fur is really flying. I can't remember the last time it was below 60, I don't think it's ever happened.

    Note I'm not running DSR, so the game is actually at 1440p not rendered at 4k and sampled down or anything. That would certainly be much slower.

    24-27 is ideal for 16:9. 24in 1440p has insane PPI and looks really crisp. Can't comment on ultrawide because they're pointless for competitive multiplayer gaming which is what I primarily do so I have never bought one.

  12. #32
    I play on 32" full HD TV. I have tried 27" but it was too small

  13. #33
    34" 1440p ultrawide here, moving non critical UI elements out of of the way for easy access. Screen does not get grainy/stretched with the right aspect ratio. You get to see more.

    It's actually useful at fights where you have to keep an eye at two locations far from eachother, take mythic maiden where as melee you were constantly on the look for orbs to soak both in front and behind you. With your camera sideways you could actually see the entire raid both sides of the boss without the need to max zoom out.

    TLDR: With the right aspect ratio you see more, not stretched.

    I'm playing on a 1080 monitor 27inches and its pretty good. I've tried using a 37, 40 and 42 monitor for wow and it's horrendous on the eyes, it's not pixulated or anything, it's just painful, unless you're happy playing across the room

    I would wait for BfA to be released.

    Legion is the most poorly optimized expansion Blizzard has ever released.

    When 7.0 released myself and thousands of other players were reporting insanely poor FPS in Suramar, Valsharah and some dungeons/raids. It was acknowledged by a Blue in the official Tech Support forums and they said a fix was on the way for 7.1 but it never came.

    I have a 27 inch 1440p 144hz gsync monitor. i7 4.1Ghz 4790 CPU, GTX1080 graphics card, 16gb ram etc. It's a $2500+ AUD PC(just for the tower).

    I can't max out WoW in 1440p. It's not possible. You have to turn anti aliasing down or turn some of the sliders down to 7 or lower to even maintain 60FPS.

    Suramar is the worst culprit. 30FPS roughly.


    Really dissapointing to be honest. Meanwhile I'm running Battlefront 2 at 1440p at 80+ frames. That has ALOT more shit going on and its multiplayer too so there's no excuse.

    Apparently WoW can't utilize all the cores in your CPU. They really need to fix it for BfA.
    I'm running a 27 inch 1440p, an I5 3570k, Sapphire AMD Radeon HC 7870 2gb, 16gb ram (4x4), it cost 1000 GBP when I first built it in 2013.

    Im on wow now my graphics are set to 8.

    In dala I'm on 90 fps
    Made a lap around the broken isle, kept at 92 fps
    Suramar I've dropped to 72 avg and over the course of 10 mins or so killing shit, flying and walking I've dropped once to 45 then back to 72s
    In raids I'm always between 70-120. The only time I've ever see this computer not handle wow is when battle for tarren mill comes around, in there I sit on a just about playable 25 fps or so.

    I can't fathom for the life of me how yours is so low on those specs, you're literally the first person I've ever heard of with issues like that (not saying you don't or the blue post isn't there). But I'll find out for myself next week, got a 1080 ti, 16gb (2x8), and I7 7700 sitting here slowly starting to download all my shit to replace this computer.

    Also shame on your for buying battlefront 2

    Yeah I bought Battlefront 2 when they disabled the pay to win. But the game has so many other issues its a travesty. Shame on me indeed. Playing with mates though.

    I have a 27 inch 1440p, 144hz IPS Gsync Monitor.

    GTX1080, i7 4790 at 4.1ghz and 16gb of DDR3 ram.

    WoW is insanely poorly optimized. You cannot max the game out. You said yourself you have the graphics set at 8. I also guarantee you don't have the highest anti aliasing or shadows on.

    It actually doesn't matter if you get a better system - this engine is so poorly made it can't utilize what you give it.

    I can max out any other BRAND new released game but I can't max out a 13 year old game. What does that tell you?

  17. #37
    That's weird. I have a very similar system and max out everything including ambient occlusion and shadows, and I get 144 FPS. I do have a much faster CPU and DDR4.

    Maybe you have DSR running? That's where you're actually running the game at a much higher resolution and scaling it down to 1440p. If you run WoW at 200%, that's actually rendering to 5k, and that's a lot of pixels.

    Eagerly awaiting this proof. Go to Suramar and take a screenshot of your settings. Advanced window too.

    Also sure you can run Destiny 2 whilst nothing is happening at 100+ FPS. But once the shit starts flying at 1440p I get 80-85.

    Yeah I only have scale set at 150% at the moment. I could drop it down to 100% and would gain massive performance.

    If you read my original post though I get great frames in some places. It's just a travesty that you can't max it everywhere. The spell effects in this game are hilariously bad.

    Suramar and Valsharah are the biggest culprits.

  19. #39
    Oh, sure. In raids I drop down to 75 FPS or so, and even when flying around it sometimes dips to 120 FPS for a bit. I have a gsync monitor too so that isn't annoying.

    Yes, dropping to 100% scale would give a huuuuuuge performance boost. But honestly once you pass 90 FPS with gsync I really can't tell the difference. Maybe I'll try scaling up too.

  20. #40
    My 1070 dipped a noticeable bit in fps after going from like 21.5 inch 1080p 60mhz to 27 inch 1440p 60mhz, not even 144mhz. Nothing too bad but on the former I was literally getting 60+ fps in everything while now it's more around 60, dipping lower depending on the game. For WoW might not be that bad but for a 1060 I'm not sure that's the best choice of monitor.
