Re: EverQuest 2 performance discussion thread
I have been fine with the game and my set up,
Doing 1280x960 4xAA 8xAF, Very High Quality. Yes cities do drop my FPS and it is still smooth/playable. The worst performance I have had with the game was when I was on Antonia Bayle at the start during peak hours. At that time that server was regularly at full/full status. Then I got a slide shows to freezing in some areas, particularly the player cities.
If you can't open doors, interact with merchants and chat text stops it is likely server latency due to too much load/players, not your rig. Try playing off hours, or switch servers in that case.
Some people do indeed set the game entirely too high. SOE has stated there isn't a rig out now that should/could run EQ 2 smoothly/well at highest of settings.
