Default Re: Well back to EQ 2 for now.

since EQ2 slowdowns are cpu limited i think that a no-sli setup with 7800gtx will run it better than a sli one.

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.

I just bought EQ2 last weekend and was quite dissapointed with the performance on my SLI system. I have no AA and the in-game quality level at very high I think (a step or two down from the top).

Any tips for better performance and good quality?

Thats the problem with the end game in WoW . . they hafta balance it with the people who play the game merely as a casual hobby to people who lvl a 60 in mere weeks(btw I hate all of you who do that). I for one am looking forward to the end game for WoW(almost 54 myself on my lock) and by the time I hit 60 BWL will be out and maybe even the exp. I also will look forward to PvPin more since lately I've been focusing on leveling. Maybe I'm finding it more interesting since I'm playing a somewhat more complicated class(it is imo). But thats cool that you've found something you enjoy. I don't wanna pick up any other mmo because WoW is taking too much of my time as it is, so thats why I won't be playing EQ2.

At what resolution? 1600x1200 with a tweaked High Quality worked out for me.((I ran 1280x960 with 4xAA/8xAF on my 6800GT SLI) Some effects such as cubemap reflections at full kill performance on my system too. Just cant expect too much out of your machine.. Even SLI machines..

lower particle count/distance. Spec on rain, textures. Player torch/light count. just tweak the settings till you get the best visuals for performance

delete it and install a better game, not hard to find one, any MMO released in the past 6 years or so should do just fine

2+ gigs of memory for eq2, 1 gig with high graphics and AA etc can't hang, that's your biggest bottleneck.

I reactivated my account, I've got a 43 almost 44 warden on Crushbone. I went on a raid to kill the Angler in Cove of Decay yesterday, we lost

But it was kickass

Splitpaw is an ownage expansion for anyone 40-49
