How would WoW run on an iBook G4 12" 1.33ghz w/ 1.5gb of ram? Just curious if i should bother keeping this iBook (though I may just so I have an older computer that I can bum to school with me.)
I don't mind putting settings to lowest, its about the game not the graphics for me. I know that I meet the required specifications but I would like to hear somebody's actual experience. Anyway, I might as well download it, I just didn't want to have to spend a huge amount of time waiting for it to download only to find it not working well.Based on the original WoW system requirements, you'd be able to--but they bumped the minimum when WOTLK came out. Also, the next expansion could bump them again. Short answer is don't bother. I wouldn't want to run it on less than my CoreDuo/X1600 MBP, frankly...
Exactly. In the original (pre BC/WOTLK) areas, it takes less to run the game. The bump in system requirements was to reflect the more demanding nature of the new spots. That's all. So if you're only interested in running classic WoW/not using the WOTLK/BC (think BC was less demanding than WOTLK though), you can pull it off...barely. Hope I didn't come off as too much of a downer...just didn't want to set expectations too high since the new areas really are too much for your hardware. Best of luckIt's oki in old world, try Dalaran and you will probably using an hour to cross the arena outside the banks
Amazing, absolutely amazing.Well to all you low-ballers, I tried it, and will have you know that it runs suprisingly well. 1024x768 w/ all settings lowest except textures (high), world detail (medium), view distance (2 settings above lowest), and glow effect, death effect, specular, and projected textures on, I get a steady 25+ fps in wilderness areas and 15-20 in StormWind. In Iron Forge, I get about 9-15.
