Path of Exile issues a fix-filled patch, talks about the creation of the Trialmaster and game sounds

Grinding Gear Games is just chock-full of information related to Path of Exile. In terms of game-related details, the game’s next upcoming patch will apply a ream of fixes to general gameplay and microtransactions. It will also increase the size of the in-game cursor, which is always nice for those of us (read: me) who have terrible eyesight and lose cursors now and again.

The rest of what’s coming out of POE is mostly about game design, specifically the process of creating the Trialmaster, a variety of Trialmaster concept art pieces, and a few words from several sound designers about creating the sound effects heard in the game. None of these things are exactly revelatory, of course, but for fans of the game they certainly can be interesting.

So the “cursor size” fix was just for Macs. There is still no option in the game to adjust the cursor size (unfortunately).

They did however take one step in the wrong direction, imo. They released a cursor graphical pack for 10 dollars. These cursors not only look nice, but also have glow effects and may allow for players to see the cursor better during combat.

My wife recently started playing and she is always complaining about losing track of her cursor during fights. Glad that rather than trying to improve something small like this, they instead decided to sell a solution.

You must be the reason they just added a cursor skin pack to the cash shop.

I came back at the beginning of this league but I just can’t find a good groove. I generally pick a fun late/end game build and level accordingly but this time the leveling seems like a slog. Mobs don’t die fast enough and the trailmaster thing just isn’t worthwhile while leveling. I have two mid-30’s toons and neither are fun, I guess I’ll go back to waiting on POE2.
