So to preface, let me explain that I've never been a PC gamer. I only recently acquired a decently spec'd laptop for the first time ever and wanted to dabble with Guild Wars 2 again since it won't be at minimum settings. However, since i installed, it's putting me at low settings still and that doesn't make sense to me. Maybe I misjudged my specs? I'm getting knocked down hoever from 100+ fps to about the mid 30's and some slight stutter. I'll post what I have here, and if you guys could explain what's going on, or how to improve the situation I'd very much appreciate it.
