When is this changed? I know in Deadfire INT doesn't increase radius of AOE, but real AOE size, so this change is to make INT more consistent with the PoE 1 version. Good they buff INT, but also means ring of oversee that +10% AOE only equals to +1 INT, same as Aloth's leather armor, which equals to 1.5 INT :) I think Obs forget to change these +% AOE gears to make them match +INT ones...

 

Also Monk with Duality of Mortal Presence provides pretty decent AOE bonus now. Good for any caster hybrid builds!

Wasn't this the case since release?

I remember a beta backer discussion around the change from PoE's "increasing radius by 6% per point of INT" to Deadfire beta's "increasing area by 6% per point of INT". Because increasing area is much weaker than radius. Then Andy Aartz answered yah they will tweak the numbers to a higher gain per point. They couldn't go past 10% (or 11%) because then you would end up with negative AoE at 1 INT.

So I guess it was always 10% from release?

Overseeing added base AoE in PoE. Is it simply working like INT now or is it still adding base area? Didn't check that.

Ah I see, yeah I thought they were still 5% like they were in PoE 1, anyway just think these +% aoe gears not worth it unless u cannot find +INT ones.

Depends. If you want to max AoE there are not that many alternatives for rings and armor.
