very good


about : "Dominated friendlies now use a yellow selection circle."


I like this change.

I think in the IE games, ALL units with unusual behaviour (charm, confusion, fear, maybe some others) had yellow circles.

I think that may also be good in PoE.


Right now I have a problem sometimes.

Lets assume there is a strong enemy and several weak ones. I manage to charm the strong one and he attacks the weaklings. But if I want to attack the strong enemy while he is charmed, you have to give the attack command and you cannot use some hostile abilities on friendly targets.


my suggestion:

- All units with unusual bahaviour (charm, dominated, confused) have yellow circles.

- The AI does not attack units with yellow circles by default. (The units with yellow circles will attack what they consider as enemy at that time, like charmed party members attack you)

- If you want, you can attack units with yellow circles by just clicking on them and you can use hostile effects on them.

- This should also prevent that you accidentally heal or buff charmed enemy units.

Charmed and Dominated enemies were Green.

Charmed and Dominated friends were Red so you could use your full complement of spells to enhance their calm.


Confused and Feared allies and enemies were Yellow.

  • Cipher's 'Amplified Thrust' no longer generates focus.

Noooooooooooo!  That was my favorite cheese!  It was overpowered as hell and this nerf is absolutely deserved, but NOOOOO!

Ok, question, are Soulbound Weapons still limited per class or are they truely universal now?  ... I ask because apparently I prefer using weapons that aren't "meant" for my character's class and it's alittle annoying to be told that the weapon I want to use isn't allowed.

Universal refers only to the weapon proficiency used to handle the weapon.

As in, it will use your Peasant weapon proficiency even if it's a 2-handed sword.

Guess we reported the bug too late for 3.02. Hopefully a fix will come in 3.03, along with a fix for Binding Rope and one for Lavender Wreath ;-)

Has anyone an incorrect VFX of mind wave area effect? Now a cone begins not from a target but from the caster (cipher).

No fix for the Glittering Gauntlets not applying Dazed for unarmed attacks ? :(

Sorry dam, not for 3.02.

Dear Developers, the mind wave has an issue now. it show as if the magic would come from the Cipher instead from the target.

I hope that the problem will be fixed in the next patch.


Not unless you report it in the technical forums ;)
