I play with a graphic configuration so low that my avatar in Eden Eternal is Fighter from Final Fantasy IV. I opted out to have animation when I strike an enemy, I just receive a message saying:
"▲▲ YOU STRIKE YOUR ENEMY(S)! DELIVER 504 DAMAGE(S)!"
I do still experience "Server busy" message when dealing with quest NPC, occasional delay when casting skills, and loading screens that last forever.
Plus the "occasionally but rarely" crash when I enter or exit arena.
I'm working to lower my grafic settings a little more, but I need Aeria to mail me mob's drop. I'll assign them to my character later.
