There is not a more OP build in the game. That I can promise you. Not necessarily for the DPS, there are higher DPS builds available. But for the simple fact that you (almost) cannot die. This build makes Death March look like Story Mode. If you want more of a challenge in DM, check out one of my other builds on my channel that offers great DPS in different forms (signs, melee). Just pick your poison and have fun!

Drowners hit for 15 damage, wolves for 60, a fiend was hitting me for 10, and city guards only hit for 150! I do want to put something out there. While this build is practicality impervious to any form of physical damage, magic damage does still hurt. Of course incoming magic damage is reduced, it just isn't to the extent of physical damage.

    11:09 Geralt (to 20+ soldiers): Not too late to surrender. This is very badass.

  • James Wadland

    #QuenForPresident2016No, seriously. Quen is the best sign, and should be praised for its glory.I can't even begin to count how many times Quen has saved my ass, due to how readily available it is and how reliable it is.Yrden is alright, but sometimes feels like a waste to set up if nothing walks into its radius, Axii is great for utility but isn't amazing in combat, Igni is ironically "cool" but not useful against shield-bearers or monsters with a resistance to fire, and Aard is also cool but I find myself using it the least, only to stagger an enemy when I need to like with the Shalemaar. The only time Quen isn't useful is during dialogue options, but Geralt's unlimited charisma easily handles those situations.

  • Damien333

    I like the part where he recorded the voice over with a potato.

  • Sergio Jara

    I stopped watching as soon as I saw he was level 83. 😂

  • Nonprophet

    It sounds like youre in a microwave

  • philsag

    I mean it would be useful if you just had to beat 20 red skull guards for whatever reason but this would be a very boring way to play the game for me.

  • GhostVaperYT

    this is not bad. i think you just missed out on one extra decoction though didn't you? nice build.

  • Ricardo Pereira de Paula

    It...actually works! I thought I had OP builts having reached really high DPS but this! You can play it blindfolded! I gotta admit, it's the most impenetrable build I've ever seen. Doesn't have the highest DPS, even with Wyvern, rather than Succubus and Whirl doesn't hurt it at all. This is not even OP, it's invencibility mode, jees.

  • Ditronus

    Again, I like the build. Just thought I'd engage in some discussion. I understand your intents better. I hope people see this video as this is a unique build, and, most importantly, uses the best-looking armor in the game! Definite thumbs up from me. I'll post a comment referring to this build at my video so people are aware of it.

  • Noor Khammas

    how could u be level 83 but with only 145 hours played, I'm level 50 with like 220 hours.

  • Fenris

    This build when fighting Detllaff(not sure if spelt right) on Death March made it really easy.

  • Jet MaX

    I'd say "Devil Geralt" is much more OPSo OP in fact that it got patched :/

  • Chuy D

    This my favorite build of all time

  • DutchArtworks

    how can you be lvl 83 with only 150 hours gametime? i have 250 hours of gametime but im only lvl 51....

  • Ambrose Smith

    so we have 30 second ads on youtube now ?

  • pduffy4

    I have the same armour build as you, same glyphs, same alchemy build etc... but my armour only rates at 839 not 1007.Which version of the game are you using? I am on 1.31 on xbox 1. Thanks.

  • Mad Dog Of Shimano

    Can u say wich decoction and potions u used in this video in order i didnt hear it very clearly

  • Me123you1me

    I can only take 3 decoctions. My toxicity is only at 245

  • I dream in neon

    I recommend being a little further from the microphone.

  • Andrea Colombo

    How do you think it would work with the Hen Gaidth armor? Its "vampiric" ability should synergize pretty well with Invigoration and the armor should provide better protection than Ursine, albeit at the cost of that spiffy Adrenaline bonuses.

  • Afshin The Great

    Can we have V2 of this video with better audio?Thank you for the OP build.

  • Legion4 Lyfe

    i miss your videos Apex. I remember after BaW was released, videos from everyone on youtube. Build videos galore! Those were fun times. The excitement of exploration and testing. Thanks for your content

  • Michael Wilder

    Never mind mate I found it amazing build I'll be checking your other videos out amazing game also played through 3 times now

  • Charles Gabriel

    Also was wondering if this would work with the Hen Gaidth Armor

  • kevn j

    amazing build. ty for sharing.

  • Dannyboyz

    "Watch this gameplay"Wow, looks pretty good.realizes player is level 83lol

  • Diego Anleu

    Great Video man a question, can I use this build for a new game plus+ on death march? you now for the trophie walked the path you recommend that. greetings from Guatemala (sorry for the english)

  • Isaac Egge-Ogas

    Dude, this is a amazing build! I'm level 58 on death March killing 77+ thank you bro!!

  • Freda Dayog

    This was his armor set when he was called "Butcher of Blaviken".But he was stabbed by a pitchfork, forgot to use quen.

  • Osiris Rae

    I'm Sooooooo gunna crush deathmarch.I'm already on level 100. but I'm usmodified version of this build on the feline set.the dps isn't the best.but that tanking!!!! thanks bro

  • Demonamic777

    Your Geralt looks like Ron Perlman, I love it

  • Đaŕķ Přínçe

    can this build made before ng+ assuming that first time i ended everything till 100%coz if it can't then it will be no point if u can't use it in the important events

  • PsychoBEn

    is it doable to be at level 34 above and still having an OP ursine build? i see your level 34 video is using feline...

  • Francis Alvin Francisco

    Damn! So many slots to be allotted its unfair😂 in the pc version you only have 12 slots for the skills

  • EPICRyan3066

    Dayum! Nice. I'll definitely use this for my build. Keep up the great videos.

  • Felipe Piaggio

    I'm currently doing a similar build, and one time my heart beat stopt when I was accidentally at 18k health

  • Kima Dima

    only on 147 hours and 23 total play time honestly i don't believe

  • A M

    Is this build still working in 2018?I'm on version 1.60 on PS4 and I think all this has been patched.

  • Mario Vlatkovic

    This is why The witcher 3 is the best game of all times. The ways you can go trough the game, man, you can replay it 10 times just for different build ups.

  • Mhacks Unknown

    Try a build with maximum gueen boost and max sign intensity and see what's happen's. you're just invincible ;)

  • Jacob Rice

    Getting back into Witcher 3 and watching your build videos again. I would recommend heft enchantment on the ursine chest and running the manticore trousers for enough toxicity to pop potions, you don't really need deflection since it tanks so well

  • BrokeUglyLoser

    This build saved my bacon! I made the mistake of using the Path of the Warrior glitch to get to Level 100 before I even started NG+ or the 2 DLC releases. B&W is making me crazy. EVERY enemy has a red ?? skull and 1-Hit kills me (sometimes i get lucky and it takes 2 hits) even on Just The Story mode. Needless to say, my right thumb was about to fall off dodging so damn much... THAT IS UNTIL NOW! The Bruxa at the top of the stairs (after Detlaff literally went batshit on Touissant) would 1-Hit me every time. I'd get her down to just a sliver of health left then WHOOSH. 1-Hit. Me cursing and flipping off the TV.Reloaded an earlier save. Followed this build to the letter. She was dead in less than a minute. Awesome man. Thanks for taking the time to test this out so extensively.

  • Richard Money

    Question: how is it your sign intensity jumped so much so fast? You went from I think 55 to 250 in the blink of an eye?

  • schronk arc

    your video is particularly educational and so very interesting, thanks for taking the time to do itIt is not really "the most op build" in fact but it's "a great ended game tank build" But it works i see you 1 Vs 20 amazingbut tank is too boring for me, i prefer hard Dps .....more GloriousAnd i see you dont use any sign O_O 0 point in tree ..... it surprised me"My" Geralt is a Witcher not a Panzer, but i use the same armor, it's a very good armor set in fact just 3 parts for the queen free cast + trousers cat school for bonus on sign(i test all the set, ursine the best in fact) i'am not in legendary statut yet, just grand master, lvl 57 ^^ Death march is a real challenge in this game specially for the boss :(

  • Hirokie

    LEVEL 83? i havent see anyone with this kind of patience.

  • Jake Jensen

    I've been thinking of running something similar, but using "Cat School Techniques" and adding Levity to the Hen Gaidth (for tanking/regen), Manticore (increased toxicity for Euphoria benefit), or to the Grandmaster Ursine (resistance/general badassery). This combined with fast attack use and increased crit chance/damage could be lethal. Could I get your thoughts on that?

  • Vladimír

    man i got IK :D even on identical build, pots etc. but i got just grandmaster ursine set, and lvl 52 at DM/NG+ do u think its because i have grandmaster ursine set insted of legendary gus ? ty ;) Due to lack of points i skipped only deadly precision and fixative , but i guess they have nothing to do with defense.

  • Ornstein

    And that how Temeria win the war Annex Niffgard And Create the Temeria Empire of North

  • Gray Wolf

    sry new to TW3 but does the NG+ makes the enemies stronger?

  • PitbullTerror88

    holy shit those soldiers sure got a lot of health..

  • Joseph johnston

    What would you say would be a good “starter” build. As this is a much higher lvl build

  • pduffy4

    I got a DPS silver sword of 21,056 yesterday, my best ever, usually just about 4,000 to 6,000. I drastically changed my build. I re-alocated all my points. My steel sword was 7534 DPS.You critical hit damage is much higher than mine; mine was 8632 for silver sword but I had 970% critical hit chance with silver sword.I am using Euphoria. I was using Grandmaster Griffin armour. I have Grandmaster Ursine but have not tried it yet with this build.Thing is I was using the steel sword. I was fighting about 30 bandits and 8 dogs in one of the Knight quests in blood and wine. So plenty of action to build up the stats. I'm level 83.My sign intensity got to 479%.

  • micheal hoffstater

    Giantdad, is that you? You're kind of in the wrong game, dude.Eh, doesn't matter too much, it's too meme to be stopped. Poise bring to the Witcher 3. Gr8.

  • Shvabicu

    i run a mix of a tank build and a max dmg build.haven't played ng+ yet, but ng was a breeze and i have completed it 100% with every quest and every marker at lvl54.i'm sporting the hen gaidth steel sword which is scaled to my lvl (toussaint steel sword is superior if at same level) and the usual aerondight, both with severance as it's a gameplay chest piece is grandmaster ursine for adrenaline and superior protection, while the rest is grandmaster feline for attack power and the 3 piece set bonus. with the arachas decoction being more effective with lighter armor and equip load i'm running the levity runeword in my bear school chest and cat school techniques, as this is basically more of a fast attack build due to the feline bonus. i'm still running all the heavy attack skills with all red mutagens to maximize ap and i use a heavy attack as an opener yo activate the feline bonus before transitioning into a whirl. with 306 toxicity due to all formulae in the game i can run 4 decoctions and a thunderbolt potion at the same time. my build is a great mix of good survivability and ridiculous damage. i was able to easily survive dettlaff phase 2 air strike on death march and basically whirled through each phase in 2 seconds. the game is retardedly easy this way. i'm guessing going through ng+ i could cap most damage resistances at 100% due to the better stats of the legendary gear, so it would be even more trivial. protective coating's 25% dr + arachas decoction's 20% dr get you to 100% once you're over 55% in any category, at which point enemies can't do a thing but scratch your surface. stamina recovery with levity also let's you run quen 100% of the time, as the shield can take a beating at high dr.

  • Amjad Khan

    I used levity on my ursine armor and I think i lost the bear school technique bonus from the skill tree. Would cat school techniques work instead or do i need to actually wear cat school armor for that to work?

  • el Cabi

    hey, im new to witcher 3 and i am wondering how he has 16 skill slots + 4 mutagen slots.i only have 12 + 4.sry if this is dumb question, i tried figuring out but i couldnt D:

  • Ľuboš Kuník

    Why you have different stats at armor? I have grandmaster legendary ursine armor arround 250

  • Gandalf White

    That build seems like a Knight-Enchanter build in Witcher :D

  • monika kucmierz

    How do you get that queen sign to be so long? (how to get damage reduction)

  • Filipp Fox

    and that's how you make a slasher out of an action rpg xD

  • DDM DrevVuittonet

    this is just a high level alchemy/strong attack build

  • Electronic Wave TV

    Only two years late, but this is rad. Even though I'm a light armor guy by principle. Think ima deactivate my extra slots mod since you make making the actual builds look pretty fun.

  • Diesel19x91

    The ultimate killing machine, Geralt of Rivia

  • S.J. Villarina

    The bread and butter of this build is the synergy between the life steal and the rune enhancement, damn all you hear is the woosh sound instead of the slashing sounds. Also, you can try to put the enhancement that makes all your gear considered a light armor and get the Cat school ability with the fast attacks tree. All you need to do is whirl and you're basically a meat grinder. Dmg is a little bit less compared to wearing the Grandmaster legendary feline set, but you make up for it with how tough you are with a minimum of 10k vitality and 1k armor. Great job man!

  • F P

    Didn't play much W3, does xp scaling ever get crazy in the game? Or you always need like 1-2k xp per level?

  • Murdokdark

    you should make a boss killing video, using this build.

  • Nathan .Star

    so whats the best approach if you are just starting the game for the first time on PC ?already played through on PS4

  • Paddy Gavet

    NEVERMIND my previous question. DUH! I didn't expect the runewright to have it. That would be TOO convenient. Chalk one up for an error in overthinking. (Take the compliment, however.)

  • Thomas Kaimann

    I go with an alchemy build where i focus on critical hits with rend. Im pretty sure you have better armor but i defiantly can push mor damage. Plus im good enough at countering that id finish these fools abit faster.
