The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Tips and Tricks

These tips and tricks will help lessen the load for beginners. GiveMeSport has tips to help with fight preparation, inventory preparation, trade, and travel:

  • Look for the best weapons and armour: As you progress, you will come across powerful enemies, which means you need to set time aside and go hunting for some of the best weapons and armour your level and game have to offer. When you are at the Velen or Novigrad stage, which is at the beginning, it would be best for you to go hunting for all the basic School Witcher gear. Head to Est Tayiar in the far east of Velen for these.
  • Quicksave: Hit F5 to quicksave before every fight, the last thing you need is for the game to ‘forget’ all the progress you’ve made.
  • Use oils and potions to prepare for tough fights: Can’t kill a werewolf quick enough? Collect ingredients, make some Cursed Oil, apply it to your blade and work your magic! Give yourself time to prepare and gather the right tools.
  • Repair your gear often: During your travels and fights, you will notice that your weapons and armour start getting damaged and their overall performance is affected. This means that they will deal less damage and your armour will take more damage.

  • Learn how and when to dodge, roll and parry: The game has three main responses when attacking an enemy. Avoid smaller attacks while keeping close to your enemy with dodging. If you want to do large lumbering attacks, roll. This will help you get away as quickly as possible. Lastly, parrying is where you perfectly time your block just as the attack lands. This leaves your enemy open to a counterattack. If you come across human enemies, you should parry them.
  • Check the notice boards in every new region: You can check out the map whenever you enter a new region to see where every notice board is located throughout the region. Prioritise these bulletin boards. Reading the notices attached to each one will provide you with new quests and Witcher contracts to help you level up and provide direction in a new location, as well as fresh points of interest.
  • You need an hour of meditation to fully recover your health: Pay close attention to your health as it regenerates at a slow rate. The best method of healing is to meditate for an hour. It is best to do this in a safe place away from enemies.
  • Use the roads to gain speed when on a horse: Stick to the roads as much as possible, this will also help Roach – your horse – move at a better pace. The faster you go means the more Roach will need to get some rest to recover. On the road, Roach will gallop but won’t use as much stamina. 
  • Find Places of Power for free skill points: You can spend a skill point on one of many various character improvements once you’ve accumulated enough experience. With these skill points, you can increase anything from Geralt’s fighting and sign talents to his potion overdose threshold.

There is so much to learn in this incredible RPG, but this is where we conclude our list of essential Witcher 3: Wild Hunt beginner tips.
