Orla's Spear and GoW Battlemage Super Laggy!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

I have a Niobium GoW Battlemage and I ended up using Orla's Spear basically exclusively as it just works really well both with GoW and Whirlwind.

 

However, I noticed back in Gold that things get a bit laggy when there are a lot of enemies. It kind of kept getting worse, but not enough to make it unplayable. If I don't get killed, I don't really worry and Orla mostly kills everything togething with one GoW, and sometimes a few in sequence close the a group leader.

 

The problem is in Niobium that the mage becomes pretty frail (I am still waiting to get some upgraded Amarris and better socket items) and the lag with Orla is now so bad that the game is unplayable for any difficult parts, especially Underworld where the Sakkara Demons are an easy target for poison damage... Except, everything lags and whatever lurks around with the Sakkaras are basically poison proof and just kill me once the game freezes up with the Orla shock rings all over the place.

 

Is there anything I can do about the lag with Orla? Is it a well known issue?

Orla's builds were, as long as I can remember always super laggy.  In fact this single build could drop entire servers full of players on it in the old days with everyone fleeing to another server if they heard that high-pitched whining sound of calamity

Yah, is super OP, but always that destructive lag

:lol:

:cry:

That sucks. My mage was (uhm is) basically a one hit wonder. But the super frailty means I just can't survive the lag levels in Niobium. Looks like I'll have to play with my Fire Mage more... :P

 

It's a pity though, places like the Orc deserts are fine as I can sort of anticipate the lag.

I wonder if it is possible to fix it with something like OpenGL.

 

I guess the code for Sacred is not available, would have been cool to read some of the source code.

Nope, I tried out the Wood Elf instead. Multiple hit + loopy arrow (whatever it's called). Pretty strong build so far. But yes, pity about the Wind Mage. Without lag I can even do the Valley in Underworld. With lag, I die immediately :') (Or it just crashes.)
