Uldum again...

Hey there Scott.
I've actually noticed this bug for quite a while, so I'm glad you've asked for it!
I have attached two screenshots of me while in Uldum. As you can tell, the angle is important to when this bug occurs. My character (a level 83/4 orcish warrior at the time) does not move between these screenshots, only keyboard turning occurs. This has happened on all of my characters while in the Uldum zone. It always occurs while around the dam, and I have just done testing to prove that it only happens while facing the dam. In fact, I have narrowed it to Precisely the point where the enterences (both of them) Into the dam come on screen. The moment either of the enterences enter the screen, it bugs as shown in the screenshots.

I don't have a screen shot of it, but I also recall it happening within the Throne of the Tides a lot (almost the entire instance, except a small part at the start from memory). I'll see if I can grab a screenie of it sometime.

This bug existed on my old system, which has none of the same parts as my new one. My old system ran Windows 7 32bit, with an nvidia gtx260, Q6600 intel processor and four gigs of ram. These screenshots were taken on that old system. My new system which repeats the same effect is Windows 7 64bit, Nvidia gtx570, i5 2500K processor and sixteen gigs of ram. I have always run WoW Windowed (Full Screen). I used DX9 on the old card and DX11 on the new one.

I think that is everything that I could tell you, but let me know if there is anything else you want to know! The Sparklepony is an excellent method to test with since it has so many particles that jump with the effect.
