Default Guild Wars Wireless Networking question

Hello everyone I was wondering if anyone has tried this on GW. If you make your phone into a WiFi hotspot through 4G LTE, how will GW run over WiFi? I normally get 5 bars of coverage and here are my speeds:

DL: 9.83 Mbps
UL: 8.42 Mbps
Ping: 77 ms

If I run the game over WiFi over those speeds, will the game be playable?

Thank you!

The speed is certainly alright, the ping will add up a bit though so you might experience a bit more rubberbanding or lag in general. That said, back in the days when there was no Android phones, I connected to GW through a Sony Ericsson k710i. And if I could on an archaeic phone, you can on a 4G LTE.

Just make sure your mobile tariff has unlimited data, or you'll need to remortgage your house.

unlimited mobile data
Wait, are there parts of the world where that's a thing?

You mean Canada doesn't have that? You should move across the border.

To OP: Yes, it will work with a mobile hotspot, but the lag is really bad.
That's me, the old stick-in-the-mud non-fun moderator.
(and non-understanding, also)
