Some computers don't automatically run perfect with top fps or best ping possible for your hardware or isp vice versa etc etc. Sometimes our computers need a push in the right direction they were made by man so they aren't perfect this post to get us started will hook you guys up with tweaks you can do on your pc to be running WOW at your pc's highest potential.
Ventrilo Normalization for those peeps that say your main tank is too low or that rogue is way too loud now everyone on one volume(well most anywho) input these settings below to normalize your ventrilo and be less deaf than the next guy who sounds like he is screaming over a helicopter:
* Go to Setup
* Enable Direct Sound
* Select the SFX Button
* Select Compressor and click Add.
* Under Compressor Properties use the following settings:
Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be. (I use 15)
Attack = 0.01
Release = Around 500
Threshold = Around -30
Ratio = 100
Pre delay = 4.0
Possible High Ping Related Fixes:
- Leatrix Latency Fix (TcpAckFrequency): Basically the old classic TcpAckFrequency baked into a script for easy use. Should definitely get this for a big improvement. You can get it here(http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info13581-LeatrixLatencyFix.html). Other multiplayer games might see gains as well.
- TCPNoDelay: This change was already implemented in World of Warcraft by default, so there's no need to do it.
- TCP autotuning: You should probably disable this if you're on a broadband connection of 512kbit/s or higher. This includes all the hobos with adsl. This will help network throughput in most cases, and sometimes improve ping. Read more about TCP autoturning here. To disable TCP/IP autotunning, in the Command Prompt type:
"netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled"
To verify that it is disabled: "netsh interface tcp show global"
Last Resort For the really desparate player (requires more money lawlz):
SSH Tunneling - lowering your ping by 50%-70% easily provided by these sites.

World of Warcraft Specific Tweaks:
Unlocking All Cores to Be Used by WOW:
ProcessAffinityMask: This was changed as of 3.3.2, and basically tells your wow client which cores are available for use. You can still set it manually if you like by editing your config.wtf in your world of warcraftWTF directory. Read more about it here (http://www.wowwiki.com/CVar_processAffinityMask) which also tells you what settings to use depending on your processor.
Activating DX11 Support:
Of course, if you want to take advantage of DirectX 11, you'll need a DX11-capable card from AMD's Radeon HD 5000/6000 lineup or Nvidia's GeForce GTx 400 series. You can't enable DX11 through a graphical option. Rather, you'll need to add '-d3d11' to your World of Warcraft shortcut. Or, open your config.wtf file (located in ...\World of Warcraft\WTF\) and add the line SET gxApi "d3d11".
Can speed up FPS performance up to 20%-30%
