    Title: Game using way too much memory
    Reproduction Rate: 100% for me. Usually.
    Blocker? Yes
    Typically after playing a while and visiting many scenes the memory used by the game gets bigger and bigger until it ultimately crashes the client requiring complete restart. However last couple days game has been spiking up to 8gb memory use very quickly for no apparent reason.

    Loading a fresh brand new client and loading my character on the world map I was at over 5.5g usage before even going anywhere, and once stepping into Desolis (a fairly small town, and fast loading, usually) memory use spiked up to 7gb.

    Have conferred with a few other people, 1 is having same issue, 2 are not. My husband whose system specs are significantly lower than mine seems to be having no trouble, game is using 2.5-3gb and he's been to more scenes than I have today.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Log in game. Watch memory use grow until it reaches critical mass.
    Tried different areas, same result.
    Could this be something to do with an item my character is wearing or carrying? Something's causing massive memory use.
