No so fun after the patch.1. Launch WoW2. Log in3. Get stuck at 100% loading screen4. Kill WoW process5. Launch WoW, log in, enter the world successfully6. In few minutes all NPCs and PCs disappear, spells cannot be casted, you cannot log out or exit game because "Log out" and "exit game" buttons do nothing and you have to kill WoW process again.7. Go to step 1.To all "it's addons problem" people: I deleted Cache, Interface, WTF folders, nothing changed. And it's not just me. And I had exactly same problem on 3.3.3 PTR. And it's not just players from my ISP/neighborhood/country/continent, it's happening for players all over the world.

Its not addons. Its patch week! Welcome to WoW!You get strange stuff happening during patch week. Once I had the champions from the first part of ToC5 come back to life during P2 of the Black Knight. It was interesting.

I'm 'all over the world' and it's not happening to me or any of my guildies. Have you run the repair tool to see if you have corrupted data files?

unfortunately, I have this problem too :(I don't really understand how they missed it on the PTR though?

Yes, I did run repair tool. I also tried rebooting router, flushing DNS, setting video settings to absolute minimum, everything.

I've been having the same problem since the patch. What I ended up doing that seems to work (Though I have yet to try it during peak hours) is to go into my video options and turning most of the video options to minimum. Granted, most of mine were at the bare minimum for the game not to look like a bunch of amorphous blobs shooting colorful particles at one another. The view distance and the particle density seem to be the big sticking point for my system.

Aaand... restart fixed nothing. /sigh

They "missed" it on the PTR because it isn't a problem for everyone. It happens on my wife's computer but not mine, and it doesn't matter which account plays on whic computer. This means it's something unique to a specific hardware set. That her computer has and mine doesn't. Post your specifics on the bug forums so they can try to find the common thread and fix it.
