    Default Raid Report 30/01/2011

    PCG's first 25-person raid of Cata headed to BWD.

    Bosses killed: Omnitron Defence Council, Magmaw
    Bosses attempted: Chimaeron (21% best)

    Omnitron and Magmaw went down predictable easily; almost everyone in the raid had seen them before, and there's nothing new in 25-person mode.

    The remaining bosses in BWD are significantly harder, but we made good progress on Chimaeron, reaching the final phase once. Still, the DPS and healing is probably a tad low to be expecting to stomp him.

    Tomorrow we return to BWD; depending on raid composition, we have a choice of 3 bosses. I'm inclined towards Atramedes, who I think offers us the best chance of a kill. It's not a hard fight, though it does require some decent reactions, so start reading up!

    Thanks all.

    I have done a bit looking round and found the cause of my frame rate problem was down to a couple of my addons freaking out while in that instance, seems strange it is documented the problem is there and only affects that raid, but a fix hasn't been done for it.

    Sorry about last night.

    I have no idea why my FPS was soo low, was at 1fps for omnom and only 7fps for maggy.

    Darieth - "Flame Pillar MOVE"
    My screen went from everyone alive to me dead in two screens.
    (Luckily im wearing the cloth hat that dropped)

    On 10 man runs i dont get any slowdown whatsoever, so not got a clue what is the problem.

    Anyways, hope you guys do well tonight.

    Wyrmy

    There is definately a lot more going on in 25 mans than 10. The sheer amount of graphical effects going on when 25 players start attacking will slow down any computer. My framerate was definately slower then it usually is on 10 mans so it's no surprise people were having problems.

    Wyrmy check your addons from a bit digging I did I found crabonite, more so with a couple of archeology addons go mad when you get in that specific dungeon lowering your frame rate. the simple fix for this seems to be disable everything you don't need for raiding before going in.

    not sure why the problem is only with BWD tho, as I had to leave not long after you as I couldn't even get a decent framerate with everything set to poor and on a GTX470 you know something is wrong, so I did a bit searching round google and it came up certain addons that use the map don't like that instance, so I guess until the addons are fixed it's best just to disable them.

    at least DBM and stuff I need still seem to be working fine.

    Great work guys! Sorry I couldn't be there. I have to admit, I was tempted to leave my sister stranded at the airport.

    25 mans are always very rough on FPS< and the only thing I can recommend has already been said - disable all unnecessary graphics effects (leave projected textures on though!) and turn off all but the essential addons.

    I found a big improvement when I started using Tukui too, as it is exceptionally lightweight
