    Title: Crash to desktop after a few seconds of play
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? Yes

    Details:

    A few seconds after the game starts (after character loads in), the client will crash.

    I've left the client running awhile on the "start" page (where you click "Resume"). It seems to be fine there.

    I thought it was crashing when I interacted with something. However, it seems to crash even when I'm not doing anything.

    I logged into the overworld, and it seems to be stable there. I was initially having trouble in Beran's Reach, so I ran over to Central Brittany to see if another instance would work. The client crashed pretty much immediately after loading into the scene. Tried another POT, same thing.

    Not sure what else I can try.

    (note I do have the latest nvidia drivers from yesterday, maybe there's an issue there.)

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Sign-in to the game
    2. Wait a few seconds (about 10 is the longest I've survived)

    User Specs:
    OS: Windows 10 (10.0.0) 64bit
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700K CPU @ 3.70GHz (12) System RAM: 16323

    I suppose you could be experiencing a driver issue. Many times however, reliable crashes as you describe are caused by corrupted files in the install directory. If this is the case, then a re-install of the game may fix your issue.

    Before re-installing, I "checked integrity of local files" in steam. I also rebooted. It looks like things are back to normal.

    Sorry for the false alarm, consider this resolved!
