Reviews for this release

Very bad choice, Silverlight I mean. Graphic card GTX 285, doubt everyone has something like this = for most of the peaople it has to be terrible to use. Even I don t like it at all. If there won t be a change to old style, I ll honestly try something else, cause this is just annoying to use, in every way...

Works fine for a beta. Unlike the other reviewers, I can read, so I'm glad you're planning to have a downloadable version in the coming weeks. I wish the Holy Paladin module was functional, but I've been wishing for that for years (no, it never really worked right, not even in Wrath), and I know you can't just make developers appear out of thin air.

*BETA* version is working well. Most of the reviews don't realize this or that a standalone version is still being worked on. Keep up the good work guys

Very sad really, the standalone version of Rawr was the best thing since sliced bread but this Silverlight version is aweful.

I have been in love with rawr ever since the first release I could get my grip on. It's been one wonderful program, really - and I think it still could be. However, having to download microsoft software in the firstplace to just be able to use the program creeps me out a tiny little bit. If it gets combined with an almost impossible-to-use-performance loss, I just think it's impractical.

I have to agree w/ everyone else. This is THE most disappointing thing about Cata so far... Rawr was 1 of my favorite programs and I used it religiously. I was actually waiting to see what rawr came up w/ before I was going to use my Justice Points. Now it's just unusable. So Slow and even worse, ridiculously inaccurate.

Seriously, did anyone bother testing this application at all? It was fantastic as a stand-alone app, but it's unusable now. Given how well the application worked in the past, this seems like a "managerial" decision to put in the browser. Silverlight isn't the problem because SL has matured very well, but this app is terrible.

I can only assume that Rawr was developed by a Microsoft employee who has "drunk the kool-aid" about Silverlight. There's nothing "light" about Silverlight. This business about clearing out the cache or getting an error ... seriously? It's so hard to get this to work that I just built my own spreadsheet from scratch. Silverlight is a dog, it's a shame that all this effort has been squandered.

While rawr4 works splendidly on a 6 core machine at 4ghz, I do not have access to such a machine at home and as such cannot get the program to work at any reasonable speed. Simply attempting to manually load my characters gear and talents took over 20 minutes.

Silverlight was a shocking idea. Old versions of Rawr where brilliant. This is just dire... one of the best wow apps ever, ruined. :(

More silverlight hate reviews please :). Does silverlight run fine on the DEV's comps or what? Every computer i have tried with it murders it. It feels like a javascript app pre browser acceleration
by spektor56 on Dec 16, 2010 at 2:35 PM
I am just so shocked at how the developers took one of the best programs a wow player can use, and butchered it into unuseablity by making it web based and using a platform microsoft themselfs have basicaly written off as tosh. Im gutted, does anyone know a replacement to rawr, i cant find anything like rawr 2, That was great, bring back the download version!

Dissappointed. Bring back the downloadable version. PLEASE. This version is completely unusable.
by michatmaster7 on Dec 16, 2010 at 3:53 AM
Silverlight is running so memory intensive that it uses almost 100% of the processor and over 300mb of memory - more intensive than WoW itself. Crashes the firefox plugin due to its memory use. Needs a stand alone download of it again.

The new silverlight version is horrible. Takes forever to load, and then once it does load as soon as I change a few things the whole app just dissapears. Silverlight was a bad choice, even microsoft is abandoning it for desktop use.
by mudrummer012 on Dec 15, 2010 at 9:25 PM
This was my favorite application. Unfortunately the Silverlight release does not import my characters, does not have some of the items my characters are wearing, does not let me edit to add those items... I can't even test it at this point.

This push to Silverlight is saddening. As much as having a web-based centralized database seems great, the performance went from usable to sluggishly unusable. It takes several minutes to load and most features don't function. Please bring the windows forms version back.
by jtrack3d on Dec 14, 2010 at 7:53 PM
Silverlight was a terrible choice. It runs astronomically slow on my machine and really shouldn't have that much trouble selecting a couple of drop-downs. I don't think it should have been changed from a native windows app.
