Brief update on my crashes. I was able to play through a bunch of dungeons including FINALLY completing shifting sands and killing everything. I have not had a hiccup or a hitch playing as anything other than a paladin apparently. I am wondering if there is something going on with a memory or resource problem when utilizing paladin/MA/crystal ball, maybe in all of the tracking that is done. Not sure. Going to continue to see if I can develop the crashes consistently. Going to head back to shifting sands for the billionth time with an elvish paladin and see if it happens again now that I have had some stable play again.
