Some of us have been experiencing massive FPS drops since the patch came out, particularly during chaos dungeons and boss rush. I haven’t had this occur anywhere else and it seems to be caused by certain bosses spawning. The drop is so bad that it’s nearly a second or 2 before the next frame. It makes the game feel unplayable when it happens.
All I want to do is leave this here and hopefully get some acknowledgement of the issue. It would be nice if this could be passed along for Smilegate to look into.
EDIT: None of the troubleshooting steps help. LA is the only program that I have open and it still happens.
EDIT2: A solution that worked for me and others was to go into the “Manage My DLC” section in steam and un-check the Korean voice pack. This fixed the issue and still allows use of the KR voices.
Here are some sources of others having the same problem:
Yeah, typically the first thing support suggests is to go through their troubleshooting steps. In this case, it’s not my rig, which surpasses the recommended specs and plays other games without issue. I think we’ve provided enough evidence that this isn’t an isolated issue.
Confirming 3 more situations where FPS dropped like this: The spider boss in a scenario before Ark of Arrogance, the golem mobs before the golem mini-boss and during the final boss fight of that dungeon.
I’m also seeing people say there are FPS drops in Yorn by the honing NPC, but I did not experience this myself.
I’ve had big issues with massive stutter when mobs die/drop loot, the only way I’ve been able to resolve it is by turning off loot/group loot and exp in the chat window
I made a new chat window with just party, normal and raid chat and it’s as smooth as it used to be when only that window is selected.
Seems this is my issue as well (linked below), was only happening severely on my lvl 50 destroyer which benefits from the stronghold battle exp buff. What I did above is a fix for this until they sort it out in the client
There’s a solution, have you come across it? Just open up steam, go to “manage my dlc” for Lost Ark, and un-click the Korean Voice pack. If you don’t use the KR voices, then I don’t know what could be causing it as this fixed it for me.
