I disagree. Everquest 1 is significantly more sensitive to shimmer with AF than WoW or EQ 2 or even Guild Wars. As it will exhibit shimmering on all hardware. Secondly EQ 1's simple texture makeup makes this an ideal software for testing filtering on simple textures. The effect will not be made transparent in any way by normal maps or specular effects across surfaces.

Besides. I played WoW for 3 hours tonight and couldnt see a single shimmer in HQ mode.
