looks like most people just don’t get it so i’ll say it once again.
the issue here is the RTSS overlay, which bugs out and freezes the game (or the opposite, the game bugs out when the overlay is active and freezes itself, idk but in the end it doesn’t matter).
its clearly and only the rtss overlay causing this freezing issue. disable your rtss overlay for wow and it will work flawlessly. it has for me since i did it and an hour ago i enabled it again to see if maybe the new patch from yesterday fixed it but it still froze within like half an hour.
since i disabled it once again, it stopped freezing. please blizzard, fix this issue so the rtss overlay works flawlessly once again like it did for all those years before this bug happened a few days ago. i literally can’t enjoy the game without my rtss overlay, i’m even thinking about unsubbing and waiting until this is fixed (i can always test it out for free with chars below lvl 20 to see if the issue is fixed ofc :P)
