    +1 here

    Seems like last week's patch brought back some issues that weren't around anymore, including the huge FPS drops upon using skills / pets looting.

    What I noticed is that every single time the stutters occur, drive response time goes up. It will be barely noticeable for people playing the game under 100FPS but dropping from 150 to 90 frames is really noticeable, even with G-Sync up.

    What basically happens is the drive starts "writing" in temporary files (which it shouldn't even be doing in the first place) and it creates lag due to response time going in the 15-20ms range. I tested this on :

    1) Fresh W10 install with un-updated and updated drivers
    2) Freshly SSD wipe (Samsung 850 Evo in AHCI)
    3) Freshly wiped M2 drive (Samsung 970 Evo)
    4) Freshly wiped HDD (2To Seagate Barracuda)

    It is something with the game, not enduser-related. Hopefully this gets the attention of PA because it ruins grinding and combat in general.

    It also seems to be RNG (not a joke) since it sometimes stops after character swapping or restarting the game or after a few hours of playing.

    I guess it happens only on specific (hardware?) configuration. Can you list here names/models of your CPU, GPU, MB, RAM and SSD/HDD ? Do you have Windows 10 (if yes, what version ?) ? Do you have Steam version of BDO ?

    Windows 10 64bit
    i7 5930k @ 4.5Ghz
    16Gbs of 3000Mhz HyperX DDR4
    Asus X99 Deluxe
    EVGA 1080 SC+ (2-way SLI)

    And as stated, 850 EVO + 970 EVO + 2To Seagate Barracudas

    SLI on and off, same issues still. That's not an "insufficient" hardware thing.

    Hey, this problem still exists. Is there any responsible person to inform us about what is going on? The bug issue is reported in March of 2018 and nearly 6 months have passed. We are still suffering from this bug a lot. Please inform us about improvements.

    By the way, as with the video of the first poster, when I disable my all pets,nearly all strutters disappear. Also note that when I employ my pets with the setting of "hide pets" in ESC->Settings->Performance->NPC section, I still suffer from identical issue at the same ratio. I mean it doesn't make a difference to make my pets invisible. I think so the problem is not pets are at my around or not. The problem is looting of my multiple pets at the same time or close times.

    My System Specs:

    MSI GE63VR 7RF Raider Pro Gaming Laptop
    GeForce GTX 1070 (Driver version is 399.24)
    Intel(R) core(TM) i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz
    16 GB RAM
    256 GB SSD (Black Desert is installed in there)
    1 TB HDD
    Windows 10 Home Single Language x64 (Legal Product)
    15.6"
    1920 x 1080, 120Hz

    Do you have auto arrange turned on for your inventory?
    I've seen mention that turning it off came help with this issue.

    I ve heard something like that, recently. Since I started the game, I used my inventory which its auto arrange property was closed. But I thought that when auto arrange mode is active, performance affect positively and you say vice versa. I am confused. :S Though, both of them did not help me for this issue as far as it looked.

    I can confirm that stuttering specific to pet looting goes away for me with Auto Arrange option turned off.

    Has this issue got any positive wind under its wings? Can confirm that the stuttering is coming from the pets that are looting. It's really annoying when you're grinding something that you kill in 1 skill and you are constantly on the move. Sometimes the stuttering makes my mobility skills move me way too far or skills that do little teleport, you will end up 20 meters ahead where you should've landed.
    Tried auto-arrange option off and on, still stutters when pets are looting. Using 5x tier3 pets. :|

    Hi,

    Returned to the game ~1 month ago after ~12 months AFK processing break and noticed that the stutter at the exact moment when pets are looting has gotten EXTREMELY bad. I had this issue before but it was still somewhat playable. Before it wasn't affecting my character controls so much but now I find my self constantly doing unintentional "combos/movement" as the stutter messes up the key input.

    This is the most noticeable/game affecting stutter from all of the "existing stutter causers"(opening map/inventory, fairy potion drinking, setting up waypoint, interacting with NPC, taking quest rewards and what else).

    The only HW change I've had has been upping my monitor from 144Hz to 240Hz. Have always played BDO in full screen windowed.

    0 problems in other games.

    Rig roughly: 16G@2933MHz, 6700K@4500MHz, 1080GTX@1080@240Hz, Sams.EVO840

    BR,

    +1 can confirm these lags too lately ! And furthermore it seems my pets just dont loot at all or with an absurd delay. I can stand in front of a mob with loot for 6 sec and they just dont loot. And it has nothing to do with my pet lvl or rank i never had that issue before.
    If have noticed that while being in animations ( i am a wizard) my pets dont loot and when the anymations is done they loot.
    Something is ****ed up right now.

    you shouldnt revive a thread if it has nothing to do with your issue... there is server lag and desync got nothing to do with this pet stutter atm

    PSA if your pets are making your game stutter then disable game sounds

    Tbh I even notice stutters when gathering or fishing, looting in general even without pets makes the game stutter.

    Legit the only thing that stops me from playing besides the random stutter when using skills.This game revolves around grinding/gathering stuff which means stutter is gonna be always there.It was def better before.Question is what they did to change it that every interaction with the inventory causes a stutter. (+the random skill stutter which seem to be random and class based)

    i bet it has to do with the new UI
    when this started to happen long time ago they did a UI change and everyone was being effected so we found out once u turn off auto arrange it fixed the problem but for me that still doesn't work anymore still getting bad stutter
    not to mention not long ago I had like 400 plia fe bundles and sloted them and just spam the buttons and man I never ever seen bad stutter like I did when opening the bundles

    The 2 major updates that upped the stutters where when they made the black spirit quest permanent and the second was when the barter update was introduced which caused anything related to the inventory to stutter+ the occasional skill stutter.(regardless of auto being on or off)

    I've sent them multiple videos displaying the issues clearly months ago but they all seem to get ignored.Iegit think they straight up ignore stuff related to optimization.

    Oh and not to mention the spot stutters everywhere.You know.Those spots that give you a stutter every time you pass trough a certain path?
