I've made a 3.3.5 private server for personal use, but I'm noticing significant lag: any action I try to take, like using abilities, picking up items, talking to NPCs, etc., takes entire seconds to complete. And it doesn't seem like my system resources are fully utilized at all. In any case, my specs are: CPU: i7-6770k RAM: 16GB Network bandwidth: at least up to 20MB/s Is there anything I can do to speed things up? EDIT: according to WoW my latency can get above 1000ms (highest I've seen is 1065), but I'm not sure if that's the problem as the "latency" I'm experiencing can last up to 3 seconds. Another thing to note is that that machine that both the database and the server are on is the same machine that I'm playing from, and everything is on an PCIe SSD.
I'm using 3.3.5, on Windows OS, and when I try to login, I get the error that the information I have entered is not valid, with log LOGIN_UNKNOWN_ACCOUNT (once I got that I "cannot login at this time, please try again later", with the log giving LOGIN_DBBUSY for failed login, but I cannot reproduce this). When I try to use a "test, pass:test" account, I get an error that this account has been closed. Am I launching WoW the wrong way? How am I supposed to launch it? I'm using a client I downloaded, in it's own separate folder, on the same drive. The guide said to not run using the launcher, what's the launcher, is it Wow.exe? EDIT: I changed realmlist.wtf to set realmlist 127.0.0.1, now it works.
