The Witcher 3: MOST OP BUILD IN GAME - Patch 1.3 - The God Build - 140k+ Crits as a Tank!


Follow me on Twitter: @ApexofWar

The alternative heavy armor sets mentioned in the video are the Toussaint Armor set and the Hen Gaidth set. Both are decent alternatives.
  • ROCKDOMINATION

    Ekimmara, Water Hag, Archas, and a 4th decoction of your choice.

  • Shiggy

    Toxicity dropped because dyes no longer count towards acquired tolerance

  • Gamers' Core

    For those experiencing 1 hit quen degradation: make sure the right oil is applied and you have as little load in your inventory as possible. That's what makes the difference.

  • Andrew Bautista

    this build is too broken. im breezing through deathmarch like walking in the park. 1 hittin everyone, and they're ticklin me.

  • travon johnson

    Hey do a Wolven melee/sign hybrid build.( updated version 1.30 ) plz

  • 陈家怀

    I'm playing 1.31 and protective coating doesn't work on human opponent. I can only take two hits max when I mess with guards using same build.

  • Drizzlee

    apex, does this build still Works ? Would like to know that. cuz if it works I'll make it! looks really cool dude! what's the best build of patch 1.31?

  • Lj Feller

    Thank You Apex of War this is the best hybrid God build i have ever seen. Awesome!

  • AFreakingTRex

    If you use three decoctions along with the basilisk decotion which adds 40 toxicity rather than 70 you have just enough toxicity left to use 2 potions

  • Legion4 Lyfe

    Man I miss these days. Witcher 3 videos all over youtube. Lots of fun. Im still playing.

  • DorDieTo

    my grandmaster ursine armor only have 240 armor, yours have 390... how? please..

  • Cemo 202

    Job well done . When I first picked up W3 I didn't understand how the character build worked . Your explanations on hybrid and now this tank build are the best I have seen on YouTube.

  • BdoStrongerz

    Hey.. what level before you start NG+?

  • Dariusz Gurtowski

    I love this build! I know you use TSS because you like it's looks but which steel sword would you consider the best for this build?

  • Emilio Salvatore

    hey been following your videos for a while for builds to use on DM and got to say im loving them.one thing i dont personally like is that they make the game too easy after a specific point ( melle build op :| ) so im trying to make a build more focused on fun than min-maxing.since you spent more time than me theorycrafting about builds do you have any suggestions on how to make a piercing cold melle build work ?

  • Sukma Zaki

    better use it with GOG version :3

  • Corvoz

    Have you maybe thought about making ursine a light armor and going for feline techniques? maybe your crits would be even bigger

  • CookeiCutter

    They fixed Hunter Instinct? If i remember correctly last patch it was bugged, and it did not increase the crit dmg.

  • Adrian Harding

    apex of war how can i improve my AERONDIGHT sword to 1,000 add points damages?

  • Lj Feller

    hope you could do a build whoch also good in signs. combat and signs plus tank. That would be awesome.

  • Bogdan Busuioc

    just managed to get the requirements for Ursine on NG+ and i played around for about 10 mins with this build.... it is definitely awesome and i am using the ursine weapons :)Thank you !

  • John Rosales

    I get hit once by a bandit and my quen shatters?! Did they nerf this build? I'm in patch 1.31

  • Byron Banks

    Why quen now for glyphs on armor now instead of wardings? Awesome build.

  • matthew davis

    Have you done a Manticore build? I'm using Manticore armour with side effect perk which is real fun :) I'm roaming about with about 16 buffs lol

  • Kirill Isakov

    So what decoctions do you use?Water hag, ekkimara, arachas and what is the last one? Wyvern(succubus) or alghoul?

  • David Estabrooks

    Question why choose the Toussaint Steel Sword over the Toussaint Guardsman Sword? Is the 15% Bleed chance worth giving up the 30% Quen 50 Armor Piercing 25% Crit Hit Damage Bonus?

  • l-i-h

    by the way I am using the build now and it's absolutely brilliant. apart from things my level just die one shot kinda like oooh K then

  • TheHernaki

    what pocion / extrac use in this video?

  • Arnaut Scholten

    Hey I just started playing this game and this build seems cool, in which order should I level the skills?

  • Joe Vitally

    Is there anyway you could do a noob guide to your build? If you could emphasize more on where you would spec your points at the earlier levels.

  • theusernameicoodfind

    could you use the ursine steel sword and crossbow to get the 6 piece for extra damage? idk what it means by quen abilities

  • Bruno del Castillo

    Are potions hard to maintain? Like always having them

  • Matt Ethridge

    Doesn't do nearly as good as of patch 1.31

  • Stank Head

    I wish "metabolism boosts" acted immediately with potions. I have three adrenaline points, but since I'm at 280 out of 293 toxicity I can't even drink the potion that wouldn't raise my toxicity level due to the adrenaline points lol.

  • Knut Kemi

    what potions are you using?

  • Box0rz

    How does he "auto apply" potions or something at 4:55? When he enters combat, some additional buffs just appear without him going to the inventory or messing with the UI.

  • Clarke 0917

    Lvl25 what skill build to stay alive.

  • Ging Freecss

    Does this build work with light attacks?

  • jonathan

    ng+ lvl 96 it doesn't work for me guards 1 hit my sheild.

  • Dr Mittens PhD

    funny thing is i actually use this build to fight guards cuz they piss me off too often specialy the ones from novigrad

  • GyratingJack

    When you cut to the action time bit, where are you getting the quen shield from?

  • Kristiqn Kivulov

    im level 100 and my light common armor is 500+ and it stats are better around 40 % piercing resistance and etc... i mean is there better armor than grandmaster legendary etc.. crafted

  • Atlas

    This build works surprisingly well with Wolf armor and heavy glyphword...not as good as bear school, I know, but I was still surprised^^

  • Marcus Korson

    Do you need the DLC to get this build to work?

  • alex lunatiko

    where can i get the touissaint steel sword? ots from a diagram?

  • Phoenix237

    Apex, your build and videos are fantastic!

  • Andrea Colombo

    Apex, did you test the Water Hag specifically? It seemed to be broken in 1.22/1.24 (it did nothing.)

  • Renegade Gray

    What would you say are the keystone parts of this build? I'm trying to build this as I go. I'm currenly lvl 21, and am trying to prioritize which abilities to build first.

  • Marvelous Sage

    I can't figure out shit in the character section. I think I'm still running the original version of the game.

  • zykloppo

    Does it still works in Patch 1.60

  • Hausa

    wich lvl i have to be to build this on my own ?

  • fubuziom0

    see its old vid but i just back to this game and looking for some cool build. im trying this one on patch 1.31 and guardians kill me one shot now -.- game + and max dificulit.

  • Augustus Sinclair

    I really need a build lije this without the 4 extra slots

  • Serafin Valencia

    I can't seem to take much damage and I followed the instructions completely

  • Jonathan Travolta

    Hey apex what perk or enchantment are you using that makes you glow yellow everytime you hit something?

  • Kuo'tal Khaen eyeh!

    This build is sick lol the op guards got rekt

  • The Runaway Project

    imagine the tankiness you'd get using the Caretakers Shovel thing.

  • Dirt

    Is this a good build for Death March? Looks insanely powerful. I'm new to the game and I'm playing on Death March for trophy. Does the order I pick the abilities as I level up matter?Thanks.

  • ice9_ghost

    How do you start working on this building right after you beat the game for the first time? PSN: bloodrive65 if you wanna message me

  • Zachariah Neizvestny

    I'm having an issue fighting again human. It seems protective coating isn't working against them but seems fine with anything else

  • Undrtaker11

    How do I go about slowly building towards this build when starting the game?Which skills do I prioritize early?Which gear?

  • Graeme S

    Do any of the DLC armor prove any good for this?While I am waiting to grind up to the Grandmaster Ursine

  • The Golden Glory

    How to get the grandmaster legendary armor?

  • feelingtardy

    sorry, i know the video is "super old" by YT standards. but, i only finished one playthrough and decided to move to other games. at level 34, i think (can't remember) i can match any build, it just comes down to equipment. have any suggestions of which gear to use at my lower level until i can obtain this gear if/when i decide to do NG+? thanks in advance.

  • John Rosales

    I'm doing everything right but my health goes down in a few hits. Pls help I don't wanna waste 50k from grinding just to get this build.

  • Haruka Asamu

    Do you have a plan to play, but first trip to me? I just started playing it

  • Alexandra McEllen-East

    “141,000 that’s not too bad...” what? 😂

  • Easy Weezy

    What did you do to keep your stamina up? Every time I use the heavy attack I use up all my stamina and then I have to wait for it to refer to do it again can someone please help me

  • David Mako

    Looks like an awesome build. Shame that it does not work when you are at higher level. I started NG+ after both expansions at lvl 54 and am currently lvl 96. My Quen shield goes off after the 2nd hit and than enemies start pushing me around too much to be effective. It's not like your Quen that stays on for 5-6 hits which is enough time for your stamina to regenerate. I guess overleveled 100+ guards hit even harder than all the resistances can tank :(Thanks though for your really great build guides. I ran with a combination of your melee and hybrid builds through NG+ on Death March and was pretty much OP with my lvl 40 Grandmaster Feline set and my lvl 48 swords all the way through Wild Hunt and Hearts of Stone. :D Cheers
