Game breaking lag since update?

just wondering if anyone else has gotten this issue? seems I am running into game-stopping lag that makes play unable to continue. I am nearing 80 hours and enjoying the heck out of it, but I am unable to continue my progress. Does anyone else run into this or have any thoughts on what might help?
As far as my system I can run Baldurs gate 3, and diablo 3, and other titles like that so I think that the system itself should be more than adiquite. As well as the fact I have played that many hours without issue. Anyone that might have some thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thank you! I cant wait to get back into this and see what happens next!
