My Dual 1.8 G5 can hack it. I hope. BUT! My shady internet connection will be my Achilles heel.

It seems to be running just fine on my DP 800 768MB Ram Geforce3. I stuck with the default settings. Server lag was the only issue last night but that affected everyone.

My eMac (second gen) runs it pretty good. Indoors its perfect but outdoors it gets a bit sluggish. Still playable but nowhere as smooth as indoors.

My 1.25 Ghz eMac, even with its default RAM, runs the game smooth enough to get me fully addicted.

Ran great on a 1.2 gig iBook as well. It even ran on the old iMac, kicking out 2-7 fps on a Rage 128. It was playable enough to raise a gnome all the way up to level 5.
Work: MacBook - 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo - 4GB RAM - X3100 graphics.
Home: Mini - 2.0 Ghz Core2Duo - 2 GB RAM - GeForce 9400 graphics.

My rig runs it great.  Well enough to put it as the first MMORPG that will get my money.  Blizzard scores a direct hit.

erhhh.... you know that was the plan from the start don't you? It was designed as an MMO from the start, and MMO = Monthly fee.
You shouldn't ask yourself such worthless questions. Aim higher. Try this: why am I here? Why do I exist, and what is my purpose in this universe?

(Answers: 'Cause you are. 'Cause you do. 'Cause I got a shotgun, and you ain't got one.)

Yeah, because no one has ever charged a monthly fee to play an MMORPG before. </sarcasm>

Mac gaming would be so much better than PC gaming if only they were cheaper. Thats why I'm going to get a PC so I can play without worrying about system requirements.

Don't flap though, I'll be selling this iMac to my dad downstairs so it'll never be far away. ;)
Bored and such.
