FPS drop when after accepting quests

I usually operate at 60fps. Even in 25man heavy AoE fights I never drop below 40fps. However, when I accept any of the daily quests in Dalaran (JC, Fishing, Cooking) or the quests in Wintergrasp, I wind up with 8fps until I reload my ui.

Hmm weird. I do the JC daily on one of my characters and the fishing on another with no problems.

I used to have a big fps drop though a week back that lasted 2 weeks before I realised what the cause was. Apparently the Windows Media Player had decided to run a service to share some files on the network .. rofl. Ate up 70% of my memory doing that alone. Once I switched that off though my fps rose from 5 in dal to the normal 50/60.

nUI wouldn't even know you had selected a quest of any type, much less a daily or where you picked it up. What other mods do you have installed? Any quest related modes?

I was running EveryQuest, QH, Lightheaded and by default a few of the quest mods of Cartographer. I have turned all of them off on my main raider and now when accepting daily quests, I notice about 10fps drop. Seems quite odd. This is a fresh install of WoW and all adds. I have cleared all cache and even dumped the WTF folder and reset everything up.

Is the quest causing any kind of buff or debuff to be applied to you? Or is this happening for any daily quest you accept?

When was the last time it didn't have a problem ?
Can you remember what addons you have installed/updated since then ?
And you are definitely not using any other quest related addons ?
What if you turn off nUI and do the same ?
What if you disable all addons and do the same ?

I've not noticed a fps loss myself and Ive been questing like crazy on my lowbie gal with an average of 25 quests being done a day .. sigh, still 700 quests to go in azeroth and already at 54 rofl.

No buffs or debuffs. Just significant drops in fps. So much that I have the reload ui. After that it was fine. With disabling the quest addons, I didn't have much of an issue. Just a slight drop. It happened today on each quest I accepted in Dalaran, and the 3 Ebon Blade dailies at Shadow Vault.
