Serious drop frame rate when engaging targets in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

I have installed the NVIDIA binary drivers on Linux Mint 17 (64-bit). Without the NVIDIA Experience I dont know which settings I should be using for the game. I am noticing a rapid drop in frame rates when I engage a single target. If I don't engage a target I see 80-100 fps in zones and about 40-60 in cities. I switched the  Grphics settings down to Low and still see this issue. I don't know how to use nvidia-settings to see if there is something I should be doing to setup the NVIDIA driver.

I noticed that the drop in frame rate if the toon I have is moved during combat. If the NPC and the toon stay still it looks fine.

I disabled AddOns and saw the FPS in combat to be fine. The culprit was the addon Bloodhound2. It apparently doesn't play nice with Wow on Linux

I will have to make an inquiry in to the developers of Bloodhound 2 to see if they can understand what is going on?
