    Upgraded my video card recently, using Shadowplay to display my FPS.

    Made a new character, 100% clean UI using Pinco's.

    Starting at 95 frames per second. Added 4 hotbars with 12 buttons, dropped 10 frames per second.

    Added another 8 hot bars. Down to 60 frames per second.

    Aye, I think the source of 90% of performance issues is probably related to hotbars.

    I re-did my mage last night. All my spells are now in macros (as you would do if you were in Classic Client.) Still running at 90 FPS.

    I have. I can't replicate this FPS drop without Pinco's UI. This is only with Pinco's UI.

    I've already begun changing all my character's layouts to not use hotbars anymore. The only thing I use hotbars for now is consumables, and the default hotbar.

    I've looked into the scripts a while ago and I remember seeing large blocks of code looping endlessly through hotbars.

    I can currently obtain 90FPS with Pinco's while streaming. This is up from 20FPS.

    EDIT: Correction, I have another hotbar that I need with 2 buttons showing primary and secondary attack so I know if it's toggled or not.
