  • Aditya King

    I did all side quest in orchid and I'm still level 3

  • Marv Dann

    Great tip: Don't start a quest that you aren't up-to-level for UNLESS YOU WANNA DIE A MILLION TIMES BEFORE COMPLETING IT.

  • Tim Coats

    1:12 didn't even put the Yrden sign down for that wraith. -__-

  • mrlobster1287

    wtf.....were all these tips for people whove never played an adventure rpg before?

  • Scruffy Basterd

    This game is amazing but I'm so overwhelmed. I have so many quests that are lower level.

  • MetallicA7X92

    11hours till I go pick up my Witcher Collector's edition :D

  • Shammo Hamid

    I'm playing this game on easy because the only thing I'm really good at is fps and third person shooters.Enjoying the story so far but damn it's so overflown with stuff it's really confusion the controls I mean.The HUD is cluttered and I still don't understand the crafting system.

  • eternaldarkness559

    Wow he should have just said play the game. Tutorial? Side quest? Everyone does that without a useless video telling them to

  • acko

    thanks a lot for the spoilers

  • BlackMasamune X

    Geez, why don't you just play the game for us?

  • Brian Woo

    I hope the combat is more fluent in TW3. I just couldn't get used to TW2's combat. It wasn't bad it just didn't feel right.

  • QuickTimeGamer90s

    Soooo... pretty much 2 tips since 3 of them revolve around doing tuturial, going to the 1st city that the story takes you to & talking to the people there to get the quests.

  • Razi Nasrullah

    Why do you keep switching from the game to your face? Just show the game... Showing you adds nothing to this video.

  • TheKieranMurray

    tip 1 - stop watching videos tip 2 - play the game yourselfdone

  • Özil vision

    I swear I died about 15 times during the griffen and I was wondering how to do it since my attacks were barely doing anything

  • First Don Diego

    Yeah here's a Witcher 3 tip: DO NOT SELL YOUR ORIGINAL GEAR AND WEAPONS YOU START WITH!!!I made that mistake and now I'm paying for it.

  • Mark Urepa

    Why am I watching this I'm luv 98

  • UnknownUser

    Tip #1: Play it on PC.

  • thisthat &theother

  • tigerbalm

    I'm waiting for Witcher 3: Mike Hunt edition

  • Snow Viliers

  • scarified

  • Tou Vang

    Just checked my xbox games tab clicked on The Witcher and now I'm playing wtf not complaining though.

  • GellyfishProductions

    I've lost my Witcher 2 save files on PC; is there any way for me to make those choices in a menu or something at the start?? I don't wanna play W3 without Iorveth and Triss, but i'd like to avoid replaying a 30 hour game :P

  • Bosko Jal

    Hur dur tips numbe' one : launch the game huehuehue thx ign

  • Ron

    Whatevs. I won't end up playing this game until 2016 anyway. I have Infamous: Second Son, Assassin's Creed: Unity, Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Last of Us: Remastered, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Dying Light to get through first. So probably 2017 then, lol. There's too many good games.

  • afas1976

    Tengo una PC gamer con la tarjeta NVIDIA gtx 980 y tengo problemas con la calidad del juego witcher 3. El problema es que la imagen parpadea el reflejo del sol en el juego hacia todo lo que veo.

  • WhoAteMyFunDip

    What a terrible, useless video. Maybe this jagoff should just stick to sucking at Destiny & leave the real games to the adults...

  • Alhaboobie

    Destin is such a douchebag.

  • K.G.A

    tip 6. do this before tip 1. INSTALL THE GAME. this is very important. also buy the prefered platform for the game and the game itself. this "tip" video "best to play" is probably one of the most obvious freaking videos ever. so idiotic to make this video.

  • Darren Quirolo

    My biggest tip for all you witchers is to get witcher armour, at around level 8 you can equip your first set (it's a side quest mission for each set). Once you have the set you can then do upgrade quests so the armour stays good, it's useful as your not constantly worrying about having shit armour.


    Best way alchemy build you get the most out of the game nothing like finally gettin the last piece of ingredient to make that potion oil decoction your been hunting 4 ever 4 and you become so familiar with the confusing part of the game...also many say it is the most op build to do

  • ankit sen

    i gave up on witcher 3......tooo confusing

  • MetalGearMLGSolid

    2 more hours i can not wait longer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jallek

    I think some tips on the inventory and crafting systems might have been more useful..

  • Bryson Jones

    Question for someone who has this game would a person who didn't like witcher 2 like witcher 3

  • sean quintal

    Witches 3 advertisements before a witcher 3 video 👌🏼 Fineee by me

  • MINIg435

    already got it with my steam pre order... absolutely amazing

  • AfterlifeAnubis

    For fighting large groups of enemies, use igni to stun a few of them, and then kill the not-stunned enemies with your sword. for fighting boss enemies, Quen is never a bad option to spam since itll save your life (as it has saved mine on many occasion)

  • Kryptark

    I don't know why I opened this video and spoiled the upcoming Side quests for myself -_-

  • Gio Dude TV

    Playing Bloodbourne got me ready for TW3. The fighting mechanics are similar.

  • Kentucky Jones

    am i the only one that hates the fact that they added lvls to the mobs.  doesnt feel truly open word.. and i feel like im out lvling content.  UGH

  • nir ainbinder

    to sum up these tips = Just play the F'ing game as you would normally play any F'ing Witcher game :) Amazing game btw:)

  • xBraiNshOcK

    This game is dope! Its being live streamed now on Twitch.tv/leaathal

  • Jacob Meares

    I got out of white orchard as quick as i could without doing side quests my first play through. Bad idea haha

  • atheist NO.1

    GtaAncient=witcher3 wild huntMedival=Ac seriesModern=WD

  • Liam Whakaue

    Playing it right now it is slick on xbox

  • Josh Han94

    Do tutorial, do side quests, learn how to kill your enemies. I didn’t think about doing those things, thanks man!

  • XXXTrekkz

    That was helpful, thank you

  • Lithus17

    So...basically his tips boil down to just playing the game as you normally would. Super

  • Ypuh

    Geez guys, your first tip is to do the tutorial? Stopped watching there. Why not tell people to turn on their Xbox before they start the game...

  • Raven Crimson

    Anyone else got confused for 3 Seconds when they saw 5 Witcher 3 Tips? cx

  • Double00Dusty

  • Miguel Martinez

    This tips provided here I guess are for those players who don't read or explore. Thought this will be less obvious tips.
