Graphics macros for better fps (Updating for new forums)

Hi, a long time ago I posted these macros for better fps due to the crazy amount of particle effects in wow now haha.

Set graphics to lowest settings then make these macros and press them once.

Thank you for reposting!

This is one of the topics I had both bookmarked and saved from the old forums, because it has helped so many.

These settings were originally posted a long time ago, and while I’m not certain that every one of them works the same now as originally, I know that cumulatively they have a significant effect, because I just helped someone with a under-spec PC by getting them to use them.

The original thread still exists for now, at

for anyone who is interested.
