Just wanted to make another post on the topic of the amount of clicks required in the average PoE session.
I've personally ran into some health issues regarding this, but I wanted to shine a light on some recurring issues in the average POE play session that possibly attribute to a negative impact on player health.
This league more than ever, there is so much potential for crafting, loot explosions, and what not.
I think the community at large is overdue some kind of recognition, or response, from GGG not from a "Well I am Chris and this is my loot philosophy" standpoint but from an actual pragmatic standpoint on the amount of clicks the game requires.
There are several key offenders in the game in terms of sheer #clicks that I think could be improved:
Many of these seem to have potential solutions, some of which have been suggested before, but never prioritized:
Loot merging on the ground (e.g. all currency of a type merge into stacks). This would be a huge boon.
A single button for "move all" from inven --> stash, that simulates ctrl+clicking each thing individually
Default stack size of 100 for each currency. Update existing div cards and recipes/etc for balance
Stacking support for fragments, scarabs, etc
I would love to get a response on this topic, as I love PoE, but I think this particular aspect of the game (moreso than balance or bug fixing) has been neglected a bit too long without a manifesto or roadmap.
I would also like to use the OP to respond to a common point about "weight" -
What devalues items more - people being able to pick up a stack of chromatic orbs with a single click, or people who exploit beast imprinting rare watchstones or people abusing harbinger currency shard farming?
The philosophy of "weight" held more when the quote was made, back when the game was a lot slower paced and about 1000% less items dropped with less exploits for the top earners to utilize
*Edit - clarified the post a bit. I am not blaming GGG for my wrist issues, I am getting old and I get that.
I am just trying to see if there is any sort of roadmap for click improvements coming to some of these existing play session workflows that haven't been changed in a long time.
But after I slip out of the room and then hear the shouting and screams from the coma ward, I’m reminded that my life has purpose.
