Lag and high latency in Rift & Storm Legion is mainly going to happen on the release date! The new expansion offers two huge new continents, new epic stories, 10 more levels, 4 more souls, 7 dungeons, 3 raids and a chronicle, new puzzles, artifacts and collectibles, achievements, mounts, pets, titles, and much more. As everyone can see, Trion Worlds was working hard and followed the community's wishes for new content.

The Storm Legion Rift expansion can be called major and we expect also major lag, high latency and high ping!

As already said, lag, high latency and high pings in Rift Storm Legion should only be an issue on the release date (max. 2 days after). We consider this as being 'normal' by every MMORGG expansion or major update, as the game servers have a very heavy job to do. Also a player must be fair and give the developers time to adjust before starting to complain about Rift lag!
If you are one of the 3% that experiences permanent lag, high latency or high ping in Rift, then you will need to track down the causes and try to fix the lag, reduce the latency or lower the ping in Rift.

1. Rift lag, high latency and high ping caused by Game Server

If you find that Rift lags for you, the latency is high and your ping went up the clouds, then we suggest that you first talk to other Rift players and see if the issues are global or just your individual problem. You could also create a new character on a different server; check the Rift support website for announcements on technical issues (or server status). https://support.trionworlds.com/

In any case, if Rift lags because of the game server, there is nothing much you can do. Just wait it out, as it will not take longer than few hours or a day!
