Edit: As described below by others it seems that certain boss models (Tarsila, Slaughterer Arre, Heretic High Priest, Rauve, Butcher, etc.) is causing FPS drops in Boss Rush/Chaos Gate after the Valtan update.
Credit to @nohhat below for the vid of the exact issue:
Anyone else have horrible stutter after the Valtan update today ?
And I mean it works fine but as soon as combat starts it just skips everywhere , even 1-2 second freezes at the worst.
Not sure if it’s a server issue or optimization post-update , MS looks fine.
For me it isn’t really a stutter issue but that fps drops hard. In Chaos Gate noticed Tarsila was there, I had huge issues with fps drops in there and I noticed FPS dropping in boss rush when Tarsila showed up. Not sure if they’re connected at all, but it’s interesting to say the least.
Boss Rush & Chaos Dungeons have made me drop FPS from as high as 240 to as low as 5 for as much as 3 seconds and happened commonly throughout stage 2 of CD and at random levels in Hall of the Sun Boss Rush.
Same thing is happening to me. Just did a boss rush and the game was freezing for a second throughout the fight. I was playing a video on my other monitor and there were no freezes. It’s definitely a game issue.
Tarsila, Slaughterer Arre, Heretic High Priest, Rauve, punika’s chaos gate last boss adds, be it on chaos dungeon, boss rush or like a said at the end of chaos gate as soon as the models pop up or show on screen its freeze hell.
You can do the experiment, when they pop up just run away of screen and the game will be back to normal, run back and the freezes will start again.
I am getting big freezes/stutters too. Never had any problems before the update. I’ve tested my connection and it’s still good. Happened first in the 1415 chaos gate in South Vern and then in a T2 chaos dungeon as well on an alt. I will try to pay attention to what boss is up if it happens again.
Still happening after this new patch. Can any cms confirm if this an issue? Is it “our fault”? Seems to me that something so specific happening to several people cant be that case but maybe im wrong. Has anyone found a workaround?
Its starting to get VERY annoying, i really dont want to have to reinstall the whole game again because i have a 2.7mb internet (yes you read correctly) and it would take 80 hours of uninterrupted download to see if it fixes it.
