They really could have implemented elite spec a lot better trying to get my rev there is a major pain in the butt. Due to HP comp with a champ that has such low mobility is a pain

They probably should have other uses, but they absolutely should not be account bound.

The problem being they just become yet ANOTHER useless currency rather fast. Another item that has SUCH limited use. In my opinion, they should have kept it the way it was. Anet does this a little too often with them being obsessed for players to play how Anet want them to play. Long gone is the tag line "play how you want" its now "Play how Anet wants you to play" I mean at the end of the day - who was it hurting? No one. No need for this change, even if it was to fix a "bug"

For those of us that play WvW and only WvW, this change was a HUGE issue, because going as base class for several of them especially when being a roamer (which i am) coming up against pretty much anyone using the Specializations is such a BIG challenge due to how much stronger the Specializations are over base classes. For example. Necro Vs Reaper - Not lost a single fight to someone playing base Necro as my Reaper. Only option would be zerg surfing. God that is dreadful.

hey guys, didn't wanna start a new thread so i'll ask this here

my gf and I have picked up gw2 again after a couple months hiatus and we're liking it a lot. having a good time leveling our toons

problems arise during boss events where there are literally so many people fighting our rigs drop down to like 5 fps and the game becomes unplayable

other than dropping a whole bunch of settings and sacrificing most of the game's good looks for the short moments we spend in boss fights, is there anything that can be done?

im playing on my sig rig and my gf is playing on my old ph x6 and 7870

thanks

EDIT
i should mention we both used the AMD gaming evolved app to optimise settings. cpu usage is around 30% while gpu usage is maxed in lion's arch for example. my machine hovers between 15-25 fps in that zone.... mad.gif

Character model quality and limit are the biggest impactors of performance in large groups. Turning only those down should definitely help.

Thank you

But is it normal to get low FPS in lion's arch? I assumed so since everyone seems to use that zone as a benchmark.. from what I recall I got 15-25 fps with only NPCs on screen....

Does this game favour Intel CPUs more?

Horribly designed engine that they use I struggle to pull more then 70 frames in open world content @1080p , yet can play witcher 3 @4k around 45-50 FPS

It's certainly possible to get good FPS in LA, but any time there's a lot of people around, your FPS will suffer to some degree. Intel CPUs do seem to fair better than AMD CPUs.

Yea if you sacrifice graphic quality

Bah, seems like a lot of folks on Intel rigs with 970/980 setups still suffer in WvW... pretty crappy if you ask me. What are the chances of Anet doing an engine upgrade? I find it sad to waste such a fun experience cause of poor frame rates mad.gif

I think regardless of how well it's optimized just about any rig will suffer in huge WvW battles. I'd say the chances of that are pretty low, considering how far in they are. The engine they're running on is basically the GW1 engine at it's core.
