    on \World of Warcraft\_retail_\Logs you'll find a file called gx.log

    open game windows and log characters in game one by one, up to the point one of the windows closes. then quickly copy the log file out of the folder and post it so we can see the error. (in fact copy all files so you dont have to do this again)


    you have to do it exactly like this, since all client instances are logging to the same file, if you take too long data on the log file can get lost.





    without even looking at the log i can already suggest two things, first disable all addons and try again, some add-ons haven't been updated and they are calling functions that are no longer available. (you can verify this by looking at the taint.log file in the same folder. it should be filled with bad calls.)

    and second is to switch the client to dx12, then once you restart the client, go to window mode and change it to full screen(windowed), the client will appear hanged, but its actually bugging out and trying to revert to dx11. simply alt f4 and relaunch the window. it should now stay on dx12.

    I'd give them a little more time, its bugs, lots of bugs, they will squish a few. I can still play WoW on an old laptop with integrated graphic card so I feel after a couple drivers get updates and a couple hot patches in WoW things will start to go back to normal.

    Have you tried some of the detail macros?

    A few of these probably don't work anymore but this is what I use for slaves, and it seems to work remarkably well.
    Code:
    /console farclip 700
    /console textureFilteringMode 0
    /console projectedTextures 1
    /console waterDetail 0
    /console sunshafts 0
    /console renderscale 0.6
    
    
    /console set Sound_MasterVolume 0.1
    /console set Sound_SFXVolume 0.1
    /console set Sound_MusicVolume 0
    /console set Sound_AmbienceVolume 0
    /console set Sound_DialogVolume 0
    /console set Sound_EnableAmbience 0
    
    
    /console graphicsViewDistance 1
    /console graphicsEnvironmentDetail 1
    /console graphicsGroundClutter 1
    /console graphicsShadowQuality 1
    
    
    /console maxfpsbk 12
    My main char gets this macro:
    Code:
    /console farclip 2700
    /console textureFilteringMode 4
    /console projectedTextures 1
    /console waterDetail 2
    /console sunshafts 2
    /console renderscale 1
    
    
    /console set Sound_MasterVolume 0.1
    /console set Sound_SFXVolume 0.2
    /console set Sound_MusicVolume 0
    /console set Sound_AmbienceVolume 0.5
    /console set Sound_DialogVolume 1
    /console set Sound_EnableAmbience 1
    
    
    /console graphicsViewDistance 7
    /console graphicsEnvironmentDetail 7
    /console graphicsGroundClutter 1
    /console graphicsShadowQuality 6
    
    
    /console maxfpsbk 12
    Tune to taste.

    [edit] For what it's worth, I did a bit of checking on the performance diff with the above individually on an i7-6600k + 980Ti. Note that I have about 25 tabs in Iron (chromium browser), teamviewer, discord, rainmeter, and a bunch of other background apps running, so not like I'm being gentle.

    With main set to the high settings above and slaves to low settings above, CPU is at ~40-45% and GPU is ~37%.
    With all clients set to the high settings above, CPU = 50%, gpu = 47%.
    Just bumping the maxfpsbk up from 12 to 20 jumps CPU/GPU to ~60%.
    If I bump all to high settings above, maxfpsbk to 20, and set slaves to renderscale 0.3, CPU is ~60%, GPU drops to ~38%.

    can you check if one (or more) of your wow windows is set to windowed and not to fullscreen in the wow display settings?
    I had that problem which made playing impossible

    Before, i was able to just start the wow.exe and then change the settings from 7 to 1, and it was fine.

    This time, i had to start all games like normal via isboxer, then one by one, change from dx12 to dx11, restart that game, then change from settings 7 to 1, then restart again. I had to do this for all games...took ages, but now all games remember their good old settings. The games usually froze when i applied the settings, but after a hard close, it did remember the settings when it started up again. /phu

    There is no noticable difference from before the patch came out. Luckily so. I run all games in window mode.

    So after setting to DX11 across and changing my graphics all to 1 and disabling some UI addons I had only for my main character, also running the macro Mirari Provided "/console gxMTDisable 1"I have also reduced the rendering scale on my slaves to something less and made sure they are all in windowed mode, I may change them back to full screen windowed, but we shall see.After this I have noticed a decrease in CPU usage, have not had drops yet though I still have slight FPS freezes which are annoying but not it seems playable without any crashes though I have yet to enter a raid for a world boss yet so we will have to wait and see. One thing I took away is that you WILL have to adjust your settings once logged in to suit what "feels" right for you I used to just let ISboxer and the setting graphics to 1 and then done, however with an older CPU I have to make further adjustments to make this work now.

    I would suggest as described by MiRai

    to play with your settings, in most cases, you cannot just get away with setting graphics to 1 and using DX11

    Though I don't think I can fix the 100% CPU over 4 cores while in the horde capital, at least the screens not crashing.

    CPU is dramatically impacted by slave framerates. If they aren't already, make sure your maxfpsbk is set to 12 and see if that helps. FYI, I found that setting the background framerate to less than 12 tended to give me mixed results with things like follow breaking, etc. 12 was enough to avoid that and still get a lot of benefit on the CPU side.
