What works

Everything, you can play the game and complete it with little to no problems! I finished the whole act (from act I to act 10) playing on Linux.

What does not

Switching resolutions and display mode works BUT there is a chance that during switching, it might cause the x-server to regress and ending up with an unresponsive system.


DVDK must be used otherwise the game will be sluggish, encounter random stutters and very random crashes.

What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Installing Lutris with 4.0 works well too.

HowTo / Notes

Required fixes (as of 2014-08-07)
Set fullscreen
Edit the production_Config.ini file located in ${Documents}/My Games/Path of Exile/. Change fullscreen to true. This prevents the "Failed Resetting Direct3D device objects" crash.

Override openal32.dll:
In winecfg, set the openal32 library to native,builtin or native. This prevents errors involving sound files at launch.
Unconfirmed: An alternative is to launch Path of Exile with sound off with the -nosound flag. 
Recommended fixes (as of 2014-08-07)
winetricks riched20.dll // for launcher
winetricks usp10.dll    // fix unicode missing symbols
