    Almost one year already...

    And we still don't have news on the 64b DX11 client or the add-on support for PC, and no question about it was read on the latest live letter.

    What's up with that' I thought 6 months after the PS4 release we would get the improved PC client.

    At this rate I fear we will get it at the same time as the expansion, as it will be the most logical moment to release it, and to PR the expansion with performance improvements and all that...

    The DX11 client came up I believe at the E3 Live Letter. It may have been the one before it. It was stated that it was nearly ready but they were waiting until they finished with the Chinese release. 2.5 timing is probably a safe bet if not before since it was also stated it would be out by the end of the year. Add-On Support is to follow the DX11 client. Do you really need them to give updates on the project every month? Obviously things are on track and there's no sense constantly asking about them until it's closer to the intended release. FYI six months after PS4 release is actually 2.4 timing (October). That is certainly a reachable target since the Chinese client will be off and running well before then.

    How exactly will a dx11 update improve what's already there? Not being pessimistic, I'm legitimately curious (need a reason to be excited I guess).

    Oh, thanks for the info, I think i did not catch on the chinese release statement. I hope it comes soon, specially teh add-on API, so I want to make an add-on to hide my action bars as It happened in 1.0 since ARR alpha.

    Better shaders, some functions DX9 had been improved and enhanced, and some effects that were software only before now will be done directly by hardware hence improving performance, the possibility of better physics and lightning effects, tessalation, etc...

    Six months after release, right?

    Even accounting for delays due to server issues and such, that one's still way over due. . .

    After playing Online PC games that use their own Client (rather than XBL or Steam), I've found I enjoy getting updated clients almost as much as the expansion. Like seriously, Clients are kind of a big deal.
