World of Warcraft on your new Retina... performance?

So I'm a bit disappointed in the performance I'm seeing in wow on my new laptop... I sprung for the top of the line, but I can't even run the game in "Recommended" settings which is well below max at any more than 10-15 fps... granted I'm on a high pop realm, but should this be? Did Bliz kick up the graphics that much? or is this a case of badly optimized graphics for the mac?

Would I get much better performance running it under windows 8?

Anyone else have any feedback?
