What works

64 bit client installs, executes, and is playable if directx version under the game client graphics options is switched to dx9ex.

What does not

Game stutters from time to time especially when loading new scenery/areas and under heavy mob loads.  Textures become momentarily blurry (low resolution) before clearing up (high resolution textures load delay).  Appears to be dx11 graphics related type of problem.  Same stuttering issue is present when switched to dx9 via game client graphics options.

Workarounds

Switching to dx9 via game client graphics options resolves the low res to high res texture load delay (but not the stuttering).  Switching to dx9ex via game client graphics options resolves both texture load delay and stuttering, thereby making the game playable.

What was not tested

32 bit

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia

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
