Current system requirements

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have problem like: crash to desktop randomly when i'm in game and like that already more than a month. I even do not bother to contact support again, it will be waste of time for sure.

To the point: this week I'm going to buy a new PC for PLN 4000 (Polish currency) / ~ EUR 900 let's say. Therefore, I am asking please for the current system requirements and if this requirements gonna change or what because devs not over yet.

I don't want a situation where I buy a new PC and there will still be problems with the client or the game itself. I buy a new PC not only for Guild Wars 2, but because the old one is over 15 years old and other games don't work either, such as Swtor or the latest Tomb Raider.

Please give me answers to my questions, Thanks.

Guild Wars 2 puts more demands on the CPU than the GPU.  Your best bet is to prioritize the CPU.

Ryzens are a good choice over Intels for some of the single-threaded nature of the game.

You can check websites that provide benchmark data to get a better idea.

Man .. this is incredible. I just bought new pc 16 GB Ram, 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-11400F @ 2.60GHz 2.59 GHz and i shocked. With old PC get to the game took me always more than 5 minutes. Now it took me 10 seconds! All settings all max. Just wow. Not mention i can open trading company without lag and how fast everything works .. i'm speechless. Guess no more crashes for me after whole month of pain.
