I'd like to get an understanding if any Mac users have experience any kind of meaningful improvement. My estimate is that 75% of the time I find it bearable. I still see load screens walking through cities and regularly (>50% of time) have load times of greater than 20 seconds trying to interact with merchants, banks, and crafting stations in cities.
Group dungeons are usually fine, but I am always the last one loading in to the point the group has started sometimes. A small portion of the time I have to deal with enemies that have not loaded fully so I cannot see them but are able to do damage.
BG is completely unplayable. I used to love <50 BG and it was my primary tool to level up new toons but not anymore. I just don't bother.
And the events are incredibly frustrating which tells me the primary issue is the volume of players in a given area. Clockwork City was barely playable, I was just going through the grind to get tickets, it was not fun. Undaunted was OK other than the well documented group finder problems. Now day 1 of New Life Festival is showing the problems are again magnifying. Load times have multiplied across the board. I'll spend the gold to port even while in a city like Daggerfall because I'll get 3-4 long load screens just walking across the city to the wayshrine. The fishing quest in Shadowfen is barely playable. There are SO MANY players fishing that most of the time the node is dried up before I even had a bite. It took forever to get 3 damn fish.
I'd love to hear if folks are still in the same boat or if you've seen meaningful improvement.
