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

Way smoother framerate now!

I haven't played POE in 6 months but with nVidia's latest 396.54 driver noted for producing significant overall performance boost to many benchmarks I thought I'd give POE a spin up as well.

It's night and day improvement! I can turn off all the nerf'ing switches now and all is sweet. Eg: It now loads to the login screen in a second, whereas this used to take maybe 30 seconds before the flame was animating smoothly and the login button would click easy. Also, similar, but not as dramatic, level loading speed improvement.

There has been many software updates to everything in that time period, including moving from Kubuntu 17.10 to 18.04.1 and POE and Wine updates too, so can't pin the improvement down to just graphics driver.

I have yet to test heavy battles where it used to get very jerky and near impossible to control the fight but my hopes are high ...
