Reduce? I play on ULTRA settings+GEM+AZTEC+many more xD I never reduce anything
Aztec latest 2016 called Romell Graphic . Fog, light fog, Rain will kill FPS tested (from 25% up to 50% 60Hz benchmark)
No issue with 2014 version so far.
GEM FXAA (blurry one) will increase FPS but default graphic card override will improve a lot for better edge smoothing (reshade 3 is same fps gain/ losing)
For HDR problem (GEM) reduce HDR in settings -10% should be fine but I use reshade 3
For brown vision (GEM) disable tehnicolor.fx or use reshade 3 new version tehnicolor but it needs tuning.
Gaussian blurr - heavy taxing.
Lumasharpen is tested now.

Performance wise I will avoid most of the gem settings.
Easy ones like saturation, curve, can pass.
Reshade 3 is "better" for lessening HDR ( set main HDR effect to 1200 (power) and 2nd pass to less than default 0.870 (third row)
I will try aztec 2015
with aztec 2014 there is no HDR/performance loss. It is so stable that i must recommend it again. There is some "glowing" on men but it is not noticable. Sunny day env.

I use combos of this
Celtic mod campaign map
Aztec 2014 september update
Im running 42 plug-ins on reshade 3 for nothing just disabled them all and i have FPS stable on 4k . Anything with blending will cost FPS then you MUST enable ambient lighting fx for smoothing (FPS lost).
Only thing i can think of now is lowering vibrance or colourfulness down
What is the Celtic mod campaign map ???
Oh you mean that one I'm using it as well.
Aztec 2015 looks promising . So far only light fog no FPS lost. It is more desaturated. Nice platform for injector.
Strange after playing with aztec 2016 (Rome2 env) and celt mod i had to go to settings (apply and re-apply anything to reset). I had FPS drops on campaign map.
I suggest doing the same for people who somehow get sudden stuttering on campaign map.
Regarding Aztec 2016
Fog from Attila is FPS burner. It is (I hope) volumetric fog. It works sometimes for nice picture BUT this should not be part of Rome 2.
It wreack havoc . Stuttering from fog + siege = unplayable . Stuttering with Aztec 2014 / 2015 is rare and occasional .
Need more time with 2015 but if people ask about stuttering - first question must be are you using RomeII_Graphic (aztec 2016).
