Last week we told you about the 3.11.1f patch we've been working on. After further investigation and testing, the team decided to include some improvements to the bloom technology in this update. We expect this patch to go live on PC later today. In the meantime check out its full patch notes.

  • 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.
  • Messages intended to be sent to a Global Chat Channel which contain "WTS" will now automatically change the chat window to a Trade Chat Channel. This has been done in a way which should not affect legitimate words that end in 'wts', such as newts.
  • Special characters are no longer required when searching for public parties.
  • Fixed a bug where you could access the Sacred Grove in non-Harvest leagues.
  • Fixed a bug where the label for the portal to the Sacred Grove could be visible before interacting with the Seed Cache in various map areas.
  • Fixed a rare bug that could prevent Conquerors from spawning on your Atlas after migrating from a solo self-found league.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause duplicate rooms to appear in the Temple of Atzoatl.
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 3.11.1d where the delayed shockwaves from Betrayal Mastermind's "X-Slam" skill didn't deal damage.
  • Fixed a bug which caused black boxes to sometimes be rendered on top of objects.
  • Fixed a bug where Elusive would cause some cosmetic effects to lose their textures briefly when the buff expired.
  • 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.

As always, please continue to give us your feedback about specific Bloom cases that feel excessive. Thank you for your reports and patience!

Forum moderation is pathetic.
Great job on getting the bloom problems sorted this quickly!
