I've become fed up with having to wait so long for the game to load when travelling from one place to another. Currently, it takes around 30 seconds to 4-5 minutes to load, depending on how close the waypoint is - closer seems to load faster.
I was advised ingame that the problem either lies in the HDD or Ram. However, my desktop is relatively new, so I doubt that that's the issue. Defragmenting is to no avail either, as I'm always at 0% fragmented on all drives.
Personally, I think it may be to do with the fact that I'm still using the same client from closed stress tests/BWEs. Since then, I haven't redownloaded the client or changed anything; I don't know if we were supposed to. The whole GW2 Folder at the moment is at 17.5GB on disc for me. Maybe I don't have the full content downloaded?
Someone ingame also briefly mentioned Command Line Arguments, specifically the "-image" one. I'm not sure how this works, but it didn't seem to do anything.
I'm also having relatively low fps, somewhere in the region of 10-60fps on the lowest possible settings, and around 7-40fps on the highest settings. Has the game not been optimised for my setup yet? Or is this kinda framerate the standard for the likes of my PC?
I'd be very grateful if someone could provide some helpful suggestions and advice.
