Stress test is over again right?
Yes, sadly. The only issues I saw were logging in (got an error a few times, which they seemed to fix) and instances/pvp zones stopped loading. I'm pretty sure they were bottlenecking those servers for the test.
Other than that, I had no lag
I was in an instanced quest with Girii this morning and the lag made the game unplayable, took us 3 times, the first two we lagged so badly we died. When I say bad 30sec bad. Press key wait 30sec for something to happen then 3sec of something happening then 30sec of lag again.
The other annoying thing was that we had to zone in and out of the main city hoping that we got in the same phase outside the city to quest together. There was no way to switch to his phase.
Only played for 2 1/2 hrs what I saw was generally good but confusing, learning curve from other MMO's is steep.
I played ranger and liked the way I had axe MH and horn OH and my abilities changed when I went dual wield axe or equipped bow. Very clever combat method. I also liked that I didn't have 4 rows of abilities and straight away I had a self heal for my pet and myself.
I wound the graphics unto the max to see if my GTX 570 in SLI would perform and they did. Looked very nice overall. I rolled human to play with my friend but didn't like the race. I rolled Charr first but couldn't quest with him so rolled a human. Will go Charr on launch, sick of seeing gnomes, dwarves and humans. Character creation is deep.
Dabbled in crafting (Leatherworking) seems complex as well.
Overall I liked it.
