WoW: A known issue from Legion is back - Here's how to fix it

image

Remember when WoW's load times during Legion suddenly became immeasurable and we had to spend excruciatingly long minutes in the loading screen? Especially in Dalaran? If so, you can now look forward to a déjà vu: Because as numerous players complain on Reddit, among others, there are currently again problems with the loading screen of content from WoW: Legion.

Preload is responsible for the loading times

Among other things, some Reddit users report loading times for Legion content that lasted more than two minutes, while other content loaded within a few seconds thanks to the SSD:

In particular, the scenario to attack the Devastated Coast and the raids against Gul'dan and Kil'Jaeden are causing frustration among players in this regard.

However, there is a way around the problem. This solution dates back to the days when Legion's long load times first appeared. You simply have to enter the following console command in the chat of WoW (buy now 14,99 € ):

  • /console worldPreloadNonCritical 0

This command ensures that WoW does not load game files that it does not need essential. This includes certain areas in Dalaran. If you don't preload these segments, you may run into invisible walls in Dalaran because the game has to reload the accessible areas first. These loading times should not be a problem if you have WoW installed on an SSD. Otherwise, you'll have to try out whether the console command brings you a significant relief.
