Fps issues
Hey, Since 4.0.1 my fps has dropped ALOT and i dont know why, I used to run the game at 1920x1080 with most things on ultra apart from shadows at 60+ fps solid out of raids and around 30 fps in raids.

Since 4.0.1 my fps is horrible, ive turned everything to low and in Alakir 25 last night i went down to a unplayable 4 fps, Ive cleaned my pc ect and nothing changed. Ive also tried turning off anything un needed like steam and msn.

Games like Black ops and Crysis still run fine with 50+ fps on medium which is strange.
