    Just saying that switching to Skada resolved the fps issues totally. Same (quad-core) pc, same boss-fight, same graphics settings, different addon, better framerate... I think it's safe to conclude what was really straining the CPU.

    Blizzard themselves acknowledged performance issues on Ultraxion-25 and have made improvements. Here is the entry from blizzard's hotfix:


    Essence of Dreams should strain CPUs less in 25-player raids. This buff will now activate once per second for each healer who has the buff, and the healing done by the effect will equal the amount of health healed by the healer within that one second window."

    Of course very old system can still be CPU limited, but that again is not a recount issue, but a load issue, and in fact any addon running on a CPU capped system will degrade frame rate.

    I can confirm this. Ultraxion-25 is unplayable when the boss gets around the 30% mark and we activate bloodlust; framerate drops down to 1 fps!

    Last raid I deactivated just Recount, and framerate was stable the whole fight.

    Our raiders with Skada do not have any fps issues.
