Ultra..I maxed it out.

I HONESTLY believe people that had lower FPS or complain about lag was more due to being in crowed areas or populated server...not the game itself. I played on one of the lowest populated server and never had a problem. AS far as I can remember, 60 - 75 FPS was normal for me...never really much higher or lower than that.

I was getting 20-30fps at times during the start of the beta, near the end I was always at 50+ fps on sig rig. Totally maxed out at 1080p. I have 4x MSAA (with FXAA enabled too), 16x AF, high quality texture filtering, and quality ambient occlusion enabled in the drivers so i'm sure that takes a hit. I also have vsync on adaptive.

Though even with these settings, I feel my performance should really be getting nearly double the FPS it does. I hope retail is better, or they'll have some issues with the average computer. No one wants to play on low settings.

Everything is pretty balanced and they designed the PVP to be very competitive. If any class is getting high on those scoreboards, they will show it in the data and it will be balanced. This is not a rock/paper/scissors game like WoW's PVP. It will almost always come down to skill.

You do realize that this is not a stat game right? After you hit 80 you can buy white gear for dirt cheap with the same stats as legendaries. Just like GW1, everyone has the same stats, the hardcore players stand out because they have amazing skins on their weapons/armor. There will definitely be legendary skins you get from dungeons only.

During the beta I found myself wanting more buttons. I hate using the scroll wheel for any type of button (left, right or click) so I only had the 4 usual buttons to use. Low level it was fine, doing PVP was tough.
Problem is I am a claw grip, and the G9x is perfect for my grip, first mouse I have loved and felt natural from day 1.
Naga + G600 seem like they would work better with palm grip. Maybe I should try to find somewhere I can test it out first.

Remap the DPI +/-, scroll left/right buttons so you can use them. I bind them as F9 - F12, that way you can also use modifiers. Not many games use F9-F12.

There's 9 buttons possible the G9x not including left/right click. Combined with Shift/Alt you have a possible 27 buttons on your mouse. MMO mice are gimmicks in my opinion.

In pvp rangers are by far the most op. But then this is noob vs noob. I did well playing my engineer this weekend but thats mostly only because I ran away from fights until my cooldowns were up. GW2 seems to be quite the zerg mentality, at least in the matches I played. All I did was follow behind the zerg and back cap points for an easy win.

I think the worst part about the game right now (aside from the camera issues) is the stuttering that happens when you turn the camera or are moving and the game suddenly has to load a ton of new textures. For example, i get about 90fps when i'm standing still, but as soon as i start running forward my fps will drop down to about 50 fps and will instantly shoot back up to 90fps once i stop moving. When i turn the camera, i drop down to as low as 20-30 fps sometimes for a split second. The reason this happens i think is because the game isn't currently loading textures into VRAM properly (or optimally). I think the maximum VRAM usage i saw during the beta (on ultra settings, 1080p resolution) was about 600mb. That's just far too low for a game with this level of graphical detail, even WoW uses 600mb or more.

Yeah i guess, i just dont see the point in calling them legendary weapons if everyone will be running around with them (once they get the money and mats)
Though i wonder it would be nice if all the professions had something "legendary" like weapon smiths have weapons, armor smiths have armor and such but they COULDNT be sold/traded
Of course i know that the gear has NOTHING too do with player stats and its more about look and thats partly the point, legendary items should be like a status symbol, i mean look at wow even today people STILL farm for the legendary of the old content even if they have worse stats and such people still get them because they look cool.

I just hope there is a nice variety of them that it doesnt get boring seeing EVERYONE running around with them, any ideas if we will get legendary armor, jewelery or anything? I'm guessing all the weapon classes (1hand, 2hand, staff, off-hand, bow, gun, ect) will get legendary models?

I spent like 2 or 3 hours playing keg brawl with a good friend of mine in BWE3. At first it was incredibly frustrating and my team lost in a landslide every game. I slowly figured out how to time dodges/steals properly, the teams balanced a bit more, and then I played a bunch games decided by only one point. It ended up being tons of fun. Kegbrawl is awesome. thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Godo to hear I was going to play Ranger anyways since someone else in my guild already called necromancer and thief isn't what I wanted.
