Ulduar Patch Performance Issues?


Ever since the patch dropped yesterday my game has been acting weird. My laptop is really struggling to play it, which has never been the case beforehand. My first instinct was to reduce the graphics settings, but I don’t seem to be able to do that? So I set the graphics quality slider at 2, but it will move about to 3 or 1 without me doing anything? Also, I think the main culprit is the frame rate that the game is running at. My laptop is nowhere near powerful enough to run WoW at 120fps, so I tried reducing the background and foreground framerat cap to 30. But nothing happens? I move the slider, press apply, but the game is still visibly running at the default 120FPS. Any clue what to do?
