BTW Im on Xp with the most recent official drivers.
Magus, I know for a fact that it's supporting SLI. I've benchmarked common locations over and over again w/ a single GTX against SLI and I get 10-12 fps lower in many locations than I do w/ two cards.

If I get a chance tomorrow I'll post a screenshot of the same location, one vs. the other. But there's no doubt it's supporting SLI--just not that well. And I also crash to the desktop a lot more often in SLI.

Xion,

Just wait, your AoEs are going to get plain wicked.

Oh yeah and if you are wondering about my forum name change; I am shifting it to Blacklash because it is my most widely used name across the net.

It's going to be hard getting used to that. I've thought of you as "Malficar" for so long.

I got a pretty good taste of some AoE last night while fighting in the Green Witch cave with two others. There were these podlet bugs that would pop out--like 7 or 8 of them--and I hit my Energy Blast spell 4 times for a total of 250x4 HP and killed them all in like a couple of seconds.

One of the guys I was fighting with's exact words:

"Daddy, can I be a sorcerer? Please!"



Then after it was all over I hit my Planet Gateway evac spell to get us out of dodge. They thought all that was the coolest thing.

I'm starting to really like my Sorc. Glad I stuck with him.

why is it that in every MMORPG I always pick the most underpowered classes to play... Hell in vanguard there are really only 2 or 3 underpowered classes, the rest are extremely overpowered(imo). What luck I have.

The dread knight? I thought those were pretty good? They seem to be some of the toughest enemies I battle.

Don't get me wrong, dread knights are "ok". Its not like I die alot or anything. I'm just fine. Compared to Pallies, Disciples, or well ANY caster, I am nothing.

DreadKnights, Warriors, and Rogues are the most underpowered classes in the game. All of these classes are usable, but don't dominate nearly as much as all others.

Well if you need any help on some quests or just want to group for the hell of it, send me a tell. I've leveled up pretty good @ 13. I have some pretty strong spells now and have boosted both my intelligence and wisdom over 70. Most hit for ~200 damage and if I chain it right can hit ~750. I've been on constantly lately, but I might not be on again until late tonight after 11p EST.

I spent the last two hours in Hathor Zhi trying to figure out both crafting and diplomacy. It's a little different than anything I'm used to but I think I'm getting the hang of both.

I'm sure I'll take you up on that offer...

Quick question. If you find a two handed weapon that is decent and wont make much money off people/vendor. Can you hold it and sell to me? Or i can find you an item you need if you like. I can't find ANY two handed weapons, and REALLY want one. I cant even find one at the auction banter guy. I'm only lvl 9 right now, but im sure ill lvl up here soon and be able to help you out with items.

Will do. Unfortunately, I haven't run across too many of those myself. What I have I usually got completing quests, and I always pick something that'll fit my class.

But there's a guy in my guild that's a skilled blacksmith who might be able to make you a good sword or something, and I'll keep an eye out for one. If I find a good quest that has a good weapon reward I'll send you a tell and maybe we can group on it.

We all feel your pain. Even an 8800GTX SLI system can't toy with this game, so you're not alone. It's just poorly optimized. We just have to hope they'll keep releasing performance patches.

Xion,

When I first started posting on forums I didn't really think about it. I've always been Blacklash and Malficar on various sites. It use to be a 80|20 split. Now it's down to 90|10. I'd like to have a uniform tag and identity across all hardware sites.

EDIT: Make 100% now. So if you see me around it will be as Blacklash. Period.
