In Topic: Stackable items suddenly unstackable?

31 March 2015 - 04:25 PM

I had a Bank Access Express last week that wouldn't stack with the rest in my bank. It came from a Chest of Black Lion Goods login reward.

Please let us know if you find out anything from the ticket!

I will probably be breaking some kind of rule, but it has to be said:

just download an illegal version of Windows 7/8 and get a free upgrade to Windows 10 later on. Spend the extra 100 dollar on a little better CPU and/or GPU.

I'm not a mod so I'll stay away from judgements about the statement itself… But it's worth noting that while unauthorized Windows copies will get the upgrade to 10, doing so will not validate an invalid license. You will be left with invalid Windows 10, and I have to assume it would break your crack in the process because why wouldn't they.

Edit: I didn't comment on the system posted because frankly I don't have much to add. It looks like a smartly balanced build to me. The SSD is a little small by today's standards, but that's just a matter of having more money to spend. I think the MX100 is an excellent choice at any capacity.

Anyone knows what GW2 graphical settings is most CPU dependent??

The biggest thing you can do is set the Character Model Limit to medium or lower. I find medium to be the sweet spot between performance and seeing as much as I need to see.

In my experience, Character Model Detail is more GPU bound and may not make much of a difference.

I used to think Shadow Quality affected CPU performance slightly, but I'm not certain. It's worth a shot, since it certainly scales with big crowds.

Hi I recently updated build to this http://gw2skills.net...JAQIARjBA-e  So far i gotten to level 42 in fractals with no problems bear comes in handy when conditions hit hard.  I mainly pug so this is what I run.  Brazil's build is Great however unless you manage to meet his guild's criteria / mission statement to do organized runs, it's difficult to find organized teams.  Hope you like this.

I can understand making some changes in a disorganized pug, but why the axe mainhand and torch? Torch makes sense as a quick swap before combat to stack some might, I suppose, but then it doesn't really need to be "in the build." I think you'd want to get rid of it before you attack. Axe main is a condition-heavy weapon that doesn't scale very well with Berserker gear, and I don't really see how it helps a disorganized group particularly.

I guess I could see wanting to drop the sword if you're afraid your group isn't very good, but that's still in your swap set.

i do have 8GB of RAM. Do upgrade to 16GB help???

Upon loading into Lion's Arch, Gw2.exe is using up less than 2 GB of my 8 GB total. Having a larger capacity won't help if the game won't use it (and it won't).

I will say I'm surprised you're dropping as low as 12 FPS.. as CPU-bound as GW2 is, I would have expected an overclocked Core i5-3570K to still bottom out around 30.
