As impressive as the Shadowlands and anima effects are, they don't look remotely WoW. Mostly because WoW is a mish-mash of 2012 and 2020 graphics. Lightning bolt is a literal flat texture.
I wish pvp balance "team" (or person) would be this effective as FX artist team.They really did a nice job with shadowlands.
While they look really cool when they work, Anima FX are the bane of anyone with a computer a bit outdated. Even if everything else works fine, anima FX can reduce your FPS to 4-5 and what's best about that is that they are still just as present and oppressive even with the lowest setting as they are just not affected by it. Had I not changed computer recently after the SL release, these FX would have quite literally made a large part of the game unplayable by themselves (3rd boss of Spire and General Kaal are fun with 4 FPS).
Wish they would give all the old zones a graphical update to match the last 2 expansions.
