You definitely know what you are talking about with Everquest II. I simply defeated the optional shadow features, and set the selectable box to min shadows then ran from the Beggers Court gate to the Inn doors at the Jade dragon(Lion?) in North Freeport. It seemed smoother and reported this at stock system settings 1280x1024, 4xAA/16xAF High Quality selected in game, save the shadows off as noted.

I will have to dink around with some of the other settings you suggest and try a more demanding area like Beggers Court itself.

As always thanks for all the work/feedback.
