64-bit Guild Wars 2 client officially released May 17, 2016. This is the ideal client to be using and should be considered the default client.
I updated versions and ran for an hour or so. No crashes, connection trouble, mouse control problems, or frame rate issues. (I did not experience the mouse control issues others had with 6.6, so YMMV)
What does not
Frame rate problems without the dxvk patch.
I was using the dxvk 1.8.1 patch.
What was not tested
Installer. Did not exhaustively test all game modes. Just an hour or so of play on ~10 or so PVE maps.
