Recently, I've seen a couple posts on latency in WoW, and thought I would ask here:
Have you used any settings, programs, or other tools to improve your WoW Latency? Have you found these things have actually improved latency?
Obviously, for players in Australia and the like, there's a limit to how far you can improve the latency of WoW; the data itself can only travel the speed of light. With Sydney to boston being 10000 miles, there's an implicit:
(10 090 miles) / the speed of light = 54.165075 milliseconds
latency introduced, even if no computers were involved. However, sometimes people have reported changing registry settings and the like to improve their latency.
Has improving your latency helped your playing? Have you considered (or actually) changed realms to get to a better datacenter for your playing?
At what point does the latency you play with affect your gameplay, and how do you counteract that latency?
