WoW Freakz spell link:

https://www.wow-freakz.com/spells.php?spell=197995&&name=wellspring

Character name:

Teyyloor & Chewed

Bug description:

Currently there is a major issue concerning the visual effects of Wellspring, which is causing heavy FPS drops for players while inside raids with a sizable amount of players, and this is specially FPS intensive in boss rooms with alot of enviromental effects, such as G'huun' boss arena within Uldir.

Right now whenever the player casts Wellspring, it will spawn 7 waves that will travel outwards in an arc of 180º from the shaman for 30 yards. And for every player within the area of effect of this spell will duplicate the visual effect of the ability, essentially copy-pasting the 7 waves over and over again. With 20+ players this will cause the spell to be visually multiplied over 20 times, leading to heavy FPS drops for every player that looks at the spell.

The visual effect can be easily looked at how it multiplies, by casting it towards no players, and then comparing it while casting it against several players.

Since shamans will be relatively popular for mythic raiding, i must add that Wellspring is a very popular choice for most of the current Uldir fights, and this bug makes the ability unplayable, since you will heavily lag everyone in the raid whenever you are casting the spell. Specially at G'huun. So far nobody has crashed, but several players have had a couple of second freezes whenever wellspring was casted; again, mostly at Ghuun's boss arena.

I sincerely hope that this will be fixed in the near future, since it should be quite easy to mend, considering the type of bug.
