This is the first time this has happened to me in... well... since I started playing back in 2.0 alpha.
I was running along the path in Gridania on a newly created character, and my system went berserk. Lag so intense it felt like FFXI's Dynamis with 64 people when you forgot to turn off your AV. (First thing I checked, by the way.) It took me five minutes to get the client to actually shut down.
I know my CPU is the weak link in my system, but this game was running as smooth as silk just minutes before. Task Manager said my CPU was at 40% usage. I have a pretty hefty video card (well, it was last Christmas when I got it) and 16 GB of RAM...
Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping it was a fluke.
Gonna let someone else have my server slot for the rest of the evening.
