I am playing at 30-50 FPS when i walk around but the FPS dip way below that in fights. That with character shadows off and complex shaders at 28m.
If i set quality to preset HIGH the game gets unplayable. Funny since 9800 XTs seem to run on HIGH just fine.
I am VERY frustrated with my performance right now. If i play in a group of 6 i have to set to extreme performance if i want to stay above 25 FPS.
Edit: Not running with any AA or AF even!
Have you tried tweaking your particle details? Just like EQ 1. I will only play with my own particles enabled. And I keep them at a bare minimum. They require massive amounts off fillrate in combat. And I just cant keep them enabled on any hardware.
Keep in mind everyone I did these tests at early morning (4:00 AM) when people were at a bare minimum. The more people you have in cities the worse it's gonna be. Another zone I strongly urge you all tio check is black burrow. I havent had a chance to test that one.
