Hye guys, i just got guild wars 2 and noticed the fps was a bit low making my play time a bit choppy. i was wanting to know how many frames per second most of you guys ran and if you had any tips on making me lagg less.

let me know what kind of fps most of you guys are getting. maybe its just my pc =/



Mod Edit: You can view your FPS values at the bottom of the options menu window in game.

What are your specs? Because the game is harder to run smoothly than you might think. You can try updating your drivers but if you're getting fps that low I'd consider an upgrade unfortunately :(

edit: lol misread your post as having 2 fps :P my bad. Can't open your link either for some reason, how much fps are you getting?

just open your options menu, FPS is on the bottom of that window.

Reducing shadow is what helps the most.

I get a steady 40 ish in most places

lower shadows, shaders, and any environmental things, those are FPS killers, also check your cooling because GW2 makes your computer hot hot hot

Turning shadows to high instead of ultra and the sampling at native works for me.

I run crossfire GTX570s with an i7-3400k, and usually average 75 FPS during boss fights and 90 FPS in general game.  WvWvW zergs make me hit 45 FPS.

The one killer is shadows.  Switch them off.

I used to have ~36 fps at all times. When I found out that a guildie, with basically the same specs ran around with ~70 fps, I asked for support. The problem was never found or fixed, but the tech-guy told me to turn on the Frame Limiter to 60 fps, which increased my fps by 50% =)

I think that if we post video card info/model, video card settings and game settings, will help us all for example:

-GTX 480 (default settings, no OC)
-Driver: 320.49 [Beta]
-Physx settings: CPU
-GW2 Settings:
  • Refresh Rate: 60 Hz
  • Frame Limiter: 60
  • Animation: High
  • AA: FXAA
  • Environment: High
  • LOD Dist: High
  • Reflections: All
  • Textures: High
  • Render Sampling: Native
  • Shadows: Low
  • Shaders: High
  • Post-Processing: High
  • WvW Char Limit: High
  • WvW Char Quality: Lowest
  • Best Texture Filtering: On
  • Depth Blur: On
  • High-Res Character Textures: On
  • Vertical Sync: On
-GW2 PvE World FPS: 56-61 FPS
-GW2 PvE Busy Event (+6 players on screen): 46-59 FPS
-GW2 PvE World Boss Event (+20 players on screen):41-56 FPS
-GW2 WvW: 41-56 FPS, same result as PvE World Boss Event full of people, having WvW Char Limit: High and WvW Char Quality: High doesnt affect performance as well, but I think the WvW stable performance is because of my processor (i5 oc to 4Ghz).

I notice that lowering Shaders and Reflections gives me a nice +15 FPS boost. Lowering the rest of the options didn't affect performance, except for Render Sampling. Lowering Render Sampling of course, give me a stable 60 FPS most of the time.

I tested your concept of shaders, and it's true.  I saw a stable +25 FPS boost.
