10 WITCHER 3 BEGINNER TIPS FOR NEW PLAYERS
Wolverine 3: Wild Hunt is an RPG for Windows and consoles. It can be daunting for new players to this game. You’re immediately thrown into a vast world full of monsters that only have light armour and weaponry to defeat them. Geralt of Rivia must fight against many foes to save his beloved Ciri from Eredin’s Wild Hunt. These Witcher3 beginner tips will help you along the way.
MEDITATE TO REPLENISH GERALT’S HEALTH
Geralt’s Witcher3 meditation hourglass is very handy on the lower difficulty levels. You can meditate for several hours (game time) by turning the slider on Geralt’s hourglass. This replenishes your vitality (health). When you are not fighting, Mr Rivia can replenish his vitality by practising meditation. Meditating can help you to regenerate your vitality.
When you have alcohol, meditation can replenish potions. Geralt will only consume one alcohol item while meditating to replenish his equipped potion. To make the most out of meditation, ensure you have enough booze.
Geralt’s health is only replenished by meditation at the standard and manageable difficulty levels. Meditation won’t replenish your vitality in the more complicated settings. You shouldn’t play the game at all if you are a beginner.
KEEP A CHECK OUT FOR PLACES OF POTENTIAL POWER
The Witcher’s lands are home to places of power. These magical relics were left behind by the Conjunction of Spheres. The Places of Power increase the intensity of Geralt’s Witcher signs.
The best part about them is that you get an Ability Point each time you draw or discover one. You can find 30 places of power in Witcher3, and you can accumulate up to 30 Ability Points to improve Geralt’s combat, sign, and other skillsets. It is an excellent way to boost Geralt’s strength by finding Places of Power.
Keep an eye out for magical Places of Power. Check out your maps for more Places of Power. Many POP sites can be found near or at question marks on maps. Interact with the noticeboards in villages and towns to add more question mark locations to your map.
BUY A NEW SADDLEBAG FOR ROACH
The more loot that you can collect, the better. Geralt can hold 60 items at a time. However, if you exceed that inventory weight, Mr Rivia won’t be able to run.
To increase the number of items your horse (Roach) can carry, it is worth buying a saddlebag. You can buy a saddlebag from armourers and merchants to allow Geralt to transport more items. When you shop at merchants’ stocks, make sure to look out for saddlebags.
Horse races can also allow you to acquire saddlebags. The Races: Crow’s Perch secondary quest is Velen and comes with a saddlebag prize. Check the Velen map notice board at Crow’s Perch to unlock this quest. By beating Iron-Arse Hans, you’ll be able to win a saddlebag.
COMPLETE SECONDARY QUESTS FOR LEVELING UP GERALT
To complete Witcher3, Geralt’s combat skill is essential. Each level you achieve, Geralt gains an Ability Point that can be used to improve his skills. You can also equip yourself with more potent weapons and armour to fight against stricter enemies by levelling up. The main quests will be easier if Geralt is higher than him.
For primary and secondary quests, there are recommended levels. If your hero’s level is below the recommended levels, it will be challenging to complete Witcher3’s primary missions. To increase Geralt’s EXP, you should take the time to complete secondary quests. Completing contracts that are pinned to notice boards in settlements can help you gain more EXP.
STAY CLEAR OF HIGHER-LEVEL ENEMIES
The enemy’s level can be seen alongside its vitality bar. This level value shows the strength of an enemy relative to Geralt. Avoid enemies with levels that are higher than your hero’s level. While you might be able kill enemies with a few levels more than your hero, the higher-level monsters will likely cause your death.
READ THE BESTIARY
Sometimes, exploiting the weaknesses of enemies will give you an advantage in combat. The bestiary will reveal the weaknesses of common monsters. It provides valuable information that can help you defeat your enemies. The bestiary is a great tool to use when you find a monster difficult to manage.
CRAFT WEAPON OILS – ALCHEMY
After you have looked through the bestiary, it will be easier to understand why crafting oils are important for your weapons. You can make weapon oils for many monsters that are more susceptible than others. A good selection of oils will help you exploit the weaknesses of monsters more often. Weapon oils can be a great help.
MAKE THE MOST OFGERALT’S WITCHER SENES
You will need many ingredients to make weapon oils. Witcher3 has a lot of loot and alchemy ingredients. Geralt’s Witcher Senses is a great way to ensure that you don’t miss any loot. It highlights all types of loot in orange, so make sure you use it regularly.
Geralt’s Witcher senses are especially useful for finding underwater loot. Because loot isn’t particularly visible underwater, it’s easy to miss some of it if you don’t use Mr. Rivia’s special senses.
UPGRADE THE SIGN AXII
Geralt has five magical signs, Axii. This is one of the most useful signs to upgrade as it can be used for both combat and dialog. The Axii temporarily stuns all enemies during combat. This can be useful for keeping them still so that they can inflict strong, well-timed attacks to do maximum damage.
You can increase your Axii sign with investments in Delusion or Puppet on our skill tree. When casting Axii, Delusion prevents targets from moving towards Geralt. You can also upgrade Delusion to allow you to use Axii within dialogue. This will save you money by ensuring that uncompromising characters follow your instructions. It can also help you avoid unnecessary scrapes.
The sign menu
Axii’s skill Puppet temporarily turns enemies into allies. A targeted enemy will attack nearby foes for a short time after being cast. Casting Puppet will ensure that the target foe doesn’t block your next attack.
UPGRADE YOUR QUEN SIGN
Quen can also be used to upgrade in witcher 3. Quen can be upgraded to activate shield and exploding shield. Active Shield is particularly useful as it absorbs damage and restores Geralt’s vitality. It protects Geralt while restoring his health.
Quen’s Exploding Shield enhancement inflicts some physical damage and pushes back opponents when it breaks. You can push your enemies back with the shield to get attacks in, even if they block you. It is useful against human foes with shields or swords that can block your attacks. It’s worth six Ability Points to invest in Quen’s shields.
These Witcher3 beginner tips will help you have a better chance at completing the game. Go ahead and give the Wild Hunt a great hiding place in Witcher3
