Unhappy Weird, periodic lag! Need help!

Hey people!

I'm not sure when it started but it just feels like that the past few days ... (maybe since the last downtime?)

I'll try to describe my lag:

When I'm somewhere in the wilderness lvling my sub, where really no player lag like in Giran would explain the situation, and I'm just walking from a) to b) I'm getting really little lags every 2 or 3 seconds.

It's like "normal - lag - normal - lag - normal - lag" etc ...

This lag repeats every few seconds and it's just really annoying.
The game just doesn't run fluently - it always and everywhere has these periodic lags causing the whole game to "stumble".

Does anyone else experience that kind of lag?

Does my hardware cause it? Does any other program cause it? (probably not, because I only run very few of them in the background) Does my ISP cause this lag? Or do the L2 server cause this lag?

I'm playing on Teon btw comming from Germany if that information helps.

I hope anyone can help me! Thanks in advance!

its really difficult to say, i'd suggest you to try turning DOWN the graphics to see if you get better performance. i know the HDR bloom effects are broken, as are shaders A to D. if youve got any of these running, turn them off.

you might also try running L2 in Windowed mode.

failing all these it is most likely CPU lags. its due to nothing more than ordinary wear and tear, finally taking a toll on your system. if its the case, you'll need AT LEAST to re-analyze your CPU cooling system.

Thanks for the fast reply!

CPU Usage is at 56% btw ...
Oh and I'm always playing in windowed mode.

Well...and you never had this problem before? Maybe it is something with your processor..or internet connection. Tryed already to play on a other euro or NA server for test there the lag? Try to call your provider, maybe they can give you some clues.

Also i play on teon and i dont have this kind of problem. Only sometimes but that is like always. But huge lag attacks or something not. So i guess is something with your internet provider/connection. Also try the ncsoft support...its the last hope.

Well the lag itself isn't really big. It's just annoying.

All I know is that it just annoys me since the past few days!

Q_Q not for me!

I just switched to my 2nd ISP btw (Deutsche Telekom) and the lag is still there.

It seems that it disappears from time to time tho. Everytime I'm like "OMG WTF YES ITS GONE" ... it just comes back lol ... :x

Same lag here sometimes, i tryed to check from where is comming this lag. From long time there is firewall before gameserver, and my ping to IP before this firewall is 40 and no packets lost. Problem is in this firewall, or after it, but for sure its from Ncsoft.

Wait until after the next update here in the next day or two. If still continues a few days after submit a support ticket. This crap usually happens close to an update and after for a few days. Atleast, for me but clears up a few days after the update.

Try two things
Update your video card drivers.
Turn you texture settings to low in your game video options. I did and most my lag has stopped without notice to any graphic changes.
