Thank you. I went back and checked the steps but that did not help.
I have solved the issue while setting up another game. Apparently, for some reason, player characters have something to do with S3TC. When enabling this for the other game my issue with WOW was resolved and everything runs great now.
In case anyone else has this issue I will share what fixed this for me.
Have RPM Fusion repo enabled.
Install the libs for S3TC textures. I am running 64 bit so I installed both 64 and 32. Also install driconf.
sudo yum install libtxc_dxtn libtxc_dxtn.i686 driconf
Open driconf and enable S3TC.
Everything should be running fine on games that use S3TC now.
