    Endless loading screen after starter instance

    I'm not sure if this is because the game is technically still downloading (3560MB out of 12781MB at the moment), but while creating a character and loading the starter (elf) instance is smooth and quick, I get stuck at the loading screen when you finish the instance. I've tried it repeatedly, closed the client and even restarted my computer, but no go. I've noticed if I let it sit for a good 20 minutes it will get a tiny bit loaded, but at that rate it'd take hours.

    I have DSL if that helps, not the best connection, but generally not bad.

    Might as well just let the game download it sounds like Happy Cloud is making you sad.

    It's only happening on the Laurelin(sp?) server, I've noticed. I tried another server and it works just fine.

    Did you try again on Laurelin after the other server worked?

    The Happy Cloud installer does an incremental install so that you can start playing the beginning content while the remainder is downloaded. If you play faster than it can install, you'll run into the exact problem you saw. It's possible that by the time you created a new char on another server and played the tutorial, it had installed the starter area and you could continue.
