This is not cool.
My first run with Sunder? Virtually no lag through Bloodboil and Archimonde.
Wednesday? I couldn't stop d/c'ing. They had to replace me, and I missed out on the guild first of Archimonde.
Last night in TK? 3 fps.
THREE. At best. And I d/c'd twice.
This screwed me over on Kael and killed me within the first five seconds of VR. This is not cool.
Wednesday I believe was the fault of the internet at my mom's, seeing as how I had issues even logging into WoW or a web browser. Last night's debacle? I have no clue why that happened. Perhaps it was just TK wreaking havoc on my computer. Maybe just bad luck on my end.
I already had to buy extra RAM for my laptop to run WoW. I can't afford a new computer, nor can I justify buying one to my parents. Though I'm almost 20, since they're paying for college their approval still holds some (a lot of) sway in my decisions. Especially money wise.
So what can I do?
I'm going to trim down my addons some more. I'm going to go through my computer, clean it up, delete unnecessary things, defrag, run my antiviruses and spyware detectors, do whatever it takes to get this thing liking me again.
I want to raid. Three frames per second? Is not going to cut it. I am on trial. The people in the guild like me so far, and I want to keep it this way. Disconnects during raids, them having to replace me, perpetual lag on bosses that require motion and situational awareness? It does not impress. It does not say "competent healer." It makes me seem unreliable at best.
All I can say is thank god Thaladred took mercy on my poor lagging soul. Kael did not, but, well...can't win them all.
