Computer is lagging when playing wow

Hello,
I am wondering what the problem may be when I am playing wow and my computer is lagging. It isn't lagging a whole lot, but it still disrupts gameplay. When i first bought it over a year ago, it was working fine. It started to lag kind of bad, so I deleted some programs, but it is still lagging quite a bit. What may be the problem? Video graphics card? More RAM?

    Could try deleting your wtf folder, but back it up first or any addons you have will be gone.

    There could be many reason. But to avoid any wrongful assumption, please post your PC configuration:
    CPU + CPU Cooler if any
    Video Card
    RAM
    Power Supply
    at the least.
  3. WoW is such a resource hungry game now. Lag can come from subpar hardware but you could also have a situation like an addon that's glitching/bugging, like a memory leak. Also, if you're lagging in just heavy action scenes and everybody else is lagging also, then there's not much you can do about those situations. If you're playing at peak hours (almost full server), then the lag isn't on your end.

    But like Randomkid requested, we need system specs to access your situation properly.
