The weather in this game causes serious lag for me, and im sure im not the only one.

In places like the Marketplace, or wilderness areas like The Vale, i can barely move around.

I was running a new toon (using this: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=269686 ) through Korthos, and it took me forever to move around the village, and the wilderness area. Yet the quests were perfectly fine.

So, once I went through and it went to sunny side, I had no lag whatsoever, which led me to the conclusion that it was the weather that was making me lag.

So I ask for an option to toggle the "weather effects" of public areas and wilderness areas.

As a Cleric, I demand a toggle switch for 6CON Drow Rogues. ;)

I believe you can disable atmospherics in your settings- not sure if that will completely solve your problems, but it may help.

Before I upgraded my video card, I had tremendous lag in the Refuge snow area. I feel your pain. I'm sure if we had all these fancy new weather graphics back when I had my old video card, I'd have probably quit. The lag was THAT bad.
