I know it is been for years like this, but i think it is time to bring that up. Because... if not bug then i don't know what it is.
I play GW2 on my Laptop from time to time. My Laptop is not latest but not really oldest one. I prefer to use lowest possible settings to have low GPU stress ( as you know air cooling in laptops not so efficient as desktop PC ). And the main reason i make this thread, because it is more and more frequent situation to see characters with overstacked infusions...
While i play alone, doing resource farm, it is ok.
Also while i do something with others and standart model character is loaded for my nearest allies it is also fine.
But when i meet someone with overstacked infusion effects, fancy legendary weapons and backpacks, game adds really unnecessary GPU load and therefore more heat.
This is example
I have character model limit and character model quality to lowest. Yet, despite of that, game engine loads alot of particle effect from list above.
Can we, please, somehow disable the load of Infusions, weapons and backpacks, leaving only standart character model?
Or atleast what kind of settings can be set to prevent the load of those items in Open World and PvE?
I believe there are settings for WvW, but they work only in WvW and it seems only for Enemies.
P.s. That standart character model looks ridiculous with those infusion auras. And amount of particles it adds from infusion aura is overwhelming.
