Default Re: Well back to EQ 2 for now.

Well splitpaw Saga right now is more than enough to keep me interested in the game right now. The other content hasnt massively changed but it just gives me another place I can go for experience. Since it has a "Dungeon Crawl" experience it can be alot of fun. So far I have found 3 instances that are doable solo. And of course the arena.

Overall I am enjoying myself right now. I always forget how much more deep combat is in EQ 2 compared to WoW. So its definately a much more fun game to group in. But thats from a healer perspective. Being a healer in WoW isnt very fun at all. ((Priest/Druid here! :P)) Other than that I'm gonna give EQ 2 another chance and splitpaw saga will at least keep me interested for a while.

It depends in battle with particle effects the SLI setup does better. In Cities the SLI setup does about the same. And of course outdoor zones run better @ 4xAA/16xAF @ 1600x1200. like from average 35 FPS to average 65 FPS. But in cities where CPU/Memory is your limitation the performance isnt improved at all.
