Fluctuating Latency in online games

For that past couple of days my connection in World of Warcraft has been very spotty. My latency is higher than usual and I've also had a few random disconnects. Normally my home and world latency hover around the high 70's or 80's which, to me, seems fine and i'm able to play with no issues. Over the past couple of days however it has been staying around 99 - 110 which would be alright if it wouldn't occasionally lag for upwards of 10 seconds and then resume  with latency spikes up to 500ms. This seems to happen at almost any time of the day.

 

 

I have tried power cycling both my router and modem and connecting straight to the modem.

I have also done a number of trace routes and they all seem to be about the same. I have tried to do a pathping but for whatever reason it stops at the second hop when i'm hooked up to my router or straight to the modem and no matter what website or server I try to pathping.

 

 

Tracing route to 63.240.104.93 over a maximum of 30 hops
