Lag in the Azure Span

There is clearly something wrong with the Azure Span that’s causing that zone to lag horribly, while other 3 Dragonflight zones are fine. This has been going on for about 3 days straight now on Zul’Jin-US, but I’ve heard its not unique to this server.

Its noticeable worse during peak hours, so I suspect it has something to do with the number of players. It has all the characteristics of heavy server latency (slow calls back to the server for things like looting, etc).

I’m no engineer but, my suspicion is that its a result of the Cobalt Assembly and the Anima powers in that region. Because that rep offers a 382 ring, tons of players are grinding rep there and interacting with those anima power orbs. Are they hammering the server some how? Could also have something to do with the Soup Event, but the lag continues even when the event isn’t up.

Its bad enough that Im purposely avoiding that zone until its fixed. I’ve finished every side quest on all 3 of the other zones, but still waiting to go back to the Azure Span.

Hopefully we could get some communication on whats going on in this zone, and what to expect in terms of a fix?

Hello everyone.

We recently made some adjustments to the Community Feast that was contributing to lag in the Azure Span slowly over time after each feast as servers were up for a few days. How has your experience in the Azure Span been recently?

These fixes should have improved the performance in the zone since the feast was the main culprit, but we’ll continue to keep a close eye out for any other sources of lag that may appear.
