Looking for a strategy guide for Witcher 3. Prima I guess, nothing overly fancy. Just casual gaming over here.


I'll be buying the Witcher guide later on today if no one has one. (3/13/18)

Ordered a guide

ah you are experiencing the holiness. i envy you experiencing it for the first time with all the updates and fixes. i have more tips and info on this than anyone should, and never tire of re-living it through new players. are you familiar with the witcher world and its characters and kingdoms? did you play the old games? ive got a couple great youtube vids i can turn you on to.

dont skip the dlc for this game. dont. not only is the true ending found there but there is nearly as much content as the main game, they are beyond huge, bigger than some standalone games, and they are definitely the best part of what was already the greatest thing ever made. praise be to its holiness. may the glory of the holy prophets cdpr be for a thousand generations and surely until the end of all things

Thanks. I actually had not gotten into the series before now. I had wanted to try Witcher 3 for a while but decided to pick it up and I'm enjoying it. It's rough though, I'm level 4 and still trying to figure everything out, it's quite a complicated system. Everything seems extremely dangerous and I've died a lot. All the quests are mostly way above where I am that I'm finding, which is why I wanted the guide.

I got the complete edition, so it has all of the DLC.

nice, it is different the key is not to approach it like anything else you have played before, i tried to approach it similar to dragon age inquisition but the systems and everything are different. its not like dark souls where you need to roll away from every attack, the dodge button will look like hes only moving a tiny but but its usually enough to avoid an attack. oils and decoctions to strengthen your attacks and resistances are key as well. dont be afraid to put the game on easy for while (or forever, the point is you are an overpowered superhuman, this game is about the experiences) as well to learn everything. also in the menu before you start the game where geralt is at the campfire there should be an option for alternate movement type, it makes the controls less floaty and easier to move.


check out this guys channel for skills builds. you can spread yourself too thin and be a jack of all trades and master of none and its better to specialize. this was the build i liked, the firestream evolution of igni will help you keep foes more powerful than you at bay and quen is essential.

check out these two for backstory on the world. this will be important for many things.

this one is a series but each is short, they are super super good

understanding this world, its people and these characters will vastly help your enjoyment of the game, there is a learning curve but the payoff is the most amazing game you will ever experience. i cant even look at skyrim now without a feeling is disdain, it is not worthy to look upon its holiness. no matter what i watch, what i do, what i play, i am so aware that i am not in the presence of perfection and that i am not playing this game.


after you finish EVERYTHING. watch the witcher 10th anniversary video from CDPR.



on your hunt for a strat guide make sure you get one for the complete edition or you will have to look the dlc stuff online as the original base guide only covers the base game

Thanks for the tips and videos! I will check them out! I am ok with the normal strategy guide. I'm not a completionist, and by the time I'm of a level where I can play the DLC (one is like recommended for level 30) I better know what I'm doing by then!

I need to figure out the crafting of oils and whatnot. Part of my problem is the HUD display is too small on my TV. I am getting old and my eyes suck I guess. It's already on the largest setting. So I spend a lot of time squinting over the menus. Right now I've been relying on food/water and meditation to heal and just saving frequently. I discovered how to tell if an enemy is too strong to take on. A few times I took on some angry mobs because they pissed me off. I discovered I could retreat, keep them in view (they don't follow too long) and just turtle/attack them to death, lol.

Currently I'm searching for Henrik(sp?) not too far into the game. I'll see if I can lower difficulty. You are right, it would help me a lot for my first play-through.

you can change the difficulty anytime, going easy for a first play or at least for the first couple segments can help you get the feel without enemies overwhelming you. the cool thing about enemies in this game there isnt always one strat, you have to fight beasts and humans different sometimes depending on their tactics. and once you get the feel for the oils it helps, after a few hours you will have more recipes and can oil your blade against certain enemies and that extra damage really adds up.

I got to kill a golem and a wild hunt agent last night. That was intense because I had no idea I was about to be in a mission like that where I couldn't get out of the dungeon. I had no health, no food, one sword was broken... lol but I figure out a strategy and got out. It did help me feel a bit better about combat, oils and other stuff by making me learn them so that is good.

Yeah if no one here has the complete versions' guide I guess I'll grab it on Amazon. It's only $10 more.

I grabbed this most holy tome on one of those ebay promotions with 15 of 75 so I ordered a couple guides I needed including this one.

Yeah that one looks pretty sweet. I'll likely grab this one if I don't find it or the cheaper one here later today.

I am pretty sure this is the first collectors edition, pretty sure this one is the base game and doesn't include the dlc, but it is very nice

I normally don't go for the biggest baddest version of a guide but for this game, it is so far and away my #1 anything all time. movies, games, all of it
