Remember Path of Exile’s patch 3.11.1f which was supposed to go live this week? It looks like it received some last minute improvements.

Specifically, these improvements are related to bloom:

  • Bloom is now applied after Exposure, resulting in a game-wide reduction of bloom's intensity, especially in dark areas.
  • Added a Bloom slider in the Graphics Options, allowing you to adjust the intensity of bloom effects from 25% to 130% of their base intensity.
  • Adjusted many area environments to be less bright.
  • Reduced the intensity of Bloom effects from Delve Flares.

The rest of the patch is mostly dedicated to fixes for bugs, text, and crashes. For example,

  • Fixed a client crash that could occur when using Shield Charge.
  • Fixed a client crash that could occur when taking a screenshot while using Vulkan rendering.
  • Fixed an instance crash that could occur in the Hall of Grandmasters unique map.
