Wow Text Issues with Iris Xe Graphics

I'm having the same problem as listed here:

https://community.intel.com/t5/Graphics/Intel-Iris-Xe-Issue-With-Text-in-World-of-Warcraft/td-p/1238...

Additional Rare errors:

- However, I also noticed that there's also a rare square of the world's land showing up as black occassionally (perhaps from trying to calculate a cloud's effect on it and failing?).

- Also, I noticed rarely there would be a white bar running through the title's of things like shops and mailboxes.

 

Attempted Solution:

I followed all the steps listed by @Jose_V_Intel, updating the driver (after reverting to the Microsoft driver), and reinstalling the game without any addons.

The problem persists.

Note: I used the latest driver instead of what was posted at the time (igfx_win_100.9684).

 

Then, I found this Reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comments/kzzzl5/has_anyone_ever_seen_this_before_trying_to_figure/

 

Working solution:

Switching from DirectX 12 to DirectX 11 worked for me. 

 

I did not test the other Reddit suggestions.
