Path of Exile: Why the blooming effect has such a big problem

  • A few days ago, POE community manager Bex provided a detailed explanation for this, which you can read on Reddit. In short: until Harvest, the game used outdated Blooming technology variants. For this reason, many effects (such as abilities or glowing armor) must be carefully crafted and manually equipped with POE Currency to obtain the desired effect. Now, the new system makes this operation redundant.

    With the removal of fake pollen particles, it becomes impossible to return to the old pollen system. Although developers can choose to shut down the new system, they will not provide it to the player because it will not display the various effects that the artist wants.

     The final statement particularly troubled many players: Although the popular community manager usually makes the players gentle again through her extensive contributions, in this case, she only adds fuel to the fire:

    Therutz13: For me, the intention of the artist is not important. People have problems playing games. Find a way to close the trash. "

    Lumarin: If he distracts my playing experience, I won't give the artist something he imagined. If this is his plan to make the game more painful, then the artist may mess up. When I discovered the reduced option, I immediately activated it, but it still sucks.

    Decidium-Zero: I don't mind that some people don't like this game anymore because of the new mechanism. I have never played a perfect game. It is difficult to achieve a game completely.

    Players still have hope: Bex promises that all assets that look particularly bad and dizzying assets should be optimized and become more affordable over time. The developer will also advise players to Buy POE Currency to be able to more accurately determine the intensity of flowering in the options.

    Prior to this, POE players can use additional software such as ReShade to fine-tune the appearance of their gaming experience-as the developers have confirmed, this has also been officially approved.
