    I have been experiencing super lag ever since I first downloaded the game. It takes about 15 minutes from the time I open my desktop icon and click "Play" before I appear in the world. My movement is extremely slow, and it takes anywhere from 5 to 10 times double clicking on something before anything happens. This is extremely frustrating. I'm using a Lenovo all-in-one with Windows 10. Any suggestions???

    Can you give some specs of your computer? Like cpu, ram, graphic card?

    This game need 8GB of ram as a minimum, a gaming graphic card and good processor. Its demanding.
    If you got all this but running many program at same time id try closing a few and see how it goes.
    Also if you are using lenovo all-in-one 4K with 8gb of ram will rush playing this. Reducing the windows size (windowed mode) could help alot.

    Most people here will simply tell you to spend real money upgrading, as if gaming were the only priority we had. :)

    There are other options that will help:
    • In Task Manager, set the process priority to higher than normal.
    • Make sure you're not running anything else at the same time.
    • Turn off shadows. (This is more important than resolution.)
    • Turn other video options down.
    • Personally, I found turning off music to reduce a lot of my lag.
    • Running in private mode or otherwise avoiding other avatars will be less laggy than multiplayer mode. Playing offline will be even better.
    • Expect huge differences in performance from one almost-daily patch to another. This week's patches seem to be running fairly badly for me; other weeks have been great.
