Major lag under certain circumstances

Hi. Most of the time, when I am in broadside combat and while characters are performing powers, I lag a lot. As in, I am getting 10-20 FPS (I got this using my recording software, which also says that I get around 60 while just flying around in the skyways). However, when I checked Task Manager, it says that Pirate101 is only using less than 30% of my GPU. Why is this happening and is there any way to lessen this lag?

I think that’s a problem we all have.. It takes a legit whole minute for me to load onto a ship, FROZEN.

How about we all post about times we lagged to death in the funniest/worst times!

One time, I was in the Nefarious battle of Moo Manchu, And my character literally lagged beside the buccaneer during my teleport, on the first turn. You can tell that after that we all died... Bahahaha... Luckily, we stuck together and just redid it

It isn't an outlook, sadly. It's reality ;(

I think this may just be a problem with the type of devices you're using. Powers and ship combat are more "high intensive" graphically than normal play, hence the FPS drop. The only advice I can give is to turn down your graphics detail in options.
