    Thanks. Started playing yesterday. Have boiled your advice down to this:1. Stick to roads at the beginning2. Do as many side quests as possible. XP!3. Map. ?s give ability points. !s give quests.4. Upgrade light attack, axii (rep) and quen (shield). Mutagens boost corresponding skills.5. Loot everything. Grab all you can.6. Bestiary shows enemy weaknesses.7. Create each bomb/potion once each. Assign them. 8. Save, save, save. Save before any battle. Meditating replenishes health & stocks.9. Upgrade horse with blinkers and saddle bags.10. Dismantling at armourer -> crafting items. Sell crafting/alchemy items when you have 10+.11. Combat mechanics. 1. Parry. 2. Dodge > rolling. 3. Quen. Single targets out from groups.

  • Heath Anderson

    "Like a viking going Christmas shopping" good one m8

  • mrdo9n

    In addition to your tip #9, sell:1) weapons to blacksmiths2) armor to armorers3) alchemy craft items to alchemists4) weapon craft items to blacksmiths/armorers5) miscellaneous to shopkeepers/merchantsOver time, you'll get much more money

  • Xbox 720

    Buy the upgrade that makes it so everytime you eat food, it heals you continuously for 20min... it's op

  • Raul Avram

    "Like a viking going Christmas shopping"Nice one, mate :)))

  • The Gunman

    Awesome video mate, very well put together and informative, back to Witcher now.

  • Davi Lima

    thank you. I'm about to start playing

  • Jack Finnegan

    Ugh thank you. I started today and almost lost everything to a pack of wolves.

  • Batman Fanatic

    I've played 7-10 hours or so and this is the best game I played this year so far. Some of your tips such as read weaknesses and do as many as side quests are very helpful. Just a question. What do the stash boxes do (look like big treasure boxes on the map)? I'm thinking that, you can drop the items to stash and you can access them later when required from anywhere on the map from stash box symbol? Please correct me if I'm wrong? But great video mate.

  • Özil vision

    This is my first Witcher game and I didn't know at the time that death march was a difficulty so I clicked it b/c it sounded cool, but after this video I think I can get used to it, prior to this I probably died 20 times to the griffen before I realized its weaknesses lol

  • Cheshire Achillies

    Great video very helpful thanks!!

  • Mr. Money Man

  • Princess Bubblegum

    I just found it how to beat specters after I did devil in the well

  • DeadStarAD

    I'm so used to games holding your hand through the combat that I'm actually struggling haha. Your character seems way faster at blocking & attacking than mine, my Witcher seems drunk all the time 🍻

  • gamerZsoul Z Clan

  • Vulpes

    Hey guys I have a problem. I dont really get an abillity points from drawing from places of power.

  • Bouncy Bounce

    Thanks for these great tips! I am a bona fide BEGINNER at this game so these tips, disgorged so efficiently and with a cool, British accent (we Americans are suckers for British accents and war-making on flimsy premises, though we admittedly have difficulty distinguishing between the accents of Brits, Australians, Kiwis, and inebriated Canadians from Ottawa), have changed my life, even if the change is comparable in magnitude to the effect on the Earth's spin by jumping up and down repeatedly while flailing one's arms.

  • Idinikle's Identical

    This has helped me a great deal.I can't thank you enough. I was really struggling on the Witcher 3 and I was only a few hours in.

  • TZoomed

    Hey man nice video helped me I was buggered at the start.

  • Mr. Money Man

    this video really helped me out im just starting to play this game and its really helpful thx

  • Marlon Lee

    Yeah, definitely make doing all monster contracts and side quests in White Orchard your priority. There's not much there to do, it's a small area and it will help immensely. Besides, the Devil By The Well and Brother's Peril missions fail almost immediately after you progress the story outside of White Orchard. Upon starting, look at your Crafting section for Warrior Coat and note the upgrade material necessary. As soon as you get to Velen, head to Crows Perch to have the armor smith craft you the jacket. This can be your main coat for up until Level 11 and 12...I used mine until 15, but mostly because it was the best looking. Also, look for a windmill in White Orchard, there's a house next to it with a hidden basement you can get into for early loot. You can use this to sell or equip. Witcher School gear will be some of the best to use, early on, but post-story you'll find looting Relic gear begins to out power the Witcher gear stuff, beyond level 32. Considering a New Game Plus?Collect as many diagrams and craft as many of those as you can. Once you start a new game plus, you will keep all you have crafted, but diagrams disappear. So craft as many decoctions, oils, potions and weapons/ gear as you can, to kick off your next save with. Essentially, this means to play your first play through as thoroughly as possible and there is not a question mark or exclamation mark left on your map nor remaining contracts/ side quests. Inspect every nook and cranny of every new area you're in and take your time. Be meticulous, in other words. During your next play through, you can do it a lot less thoroughly, and just focus on story and you will still be finding good relic gear, along the way...it's just important to have as much of the best to start your NG+ off with. So that your next play through can be as little of re-farming as possible. You now have a stash, so don't be afraid to fill that up with witcher school gear and relic weapons of every kind. The reason why you are saving and hording what you can, is because When you kick off your NG+ game, you'll find that certain weapons and armor you wielded the last time around, may not be re-usable again until a higher level...so you need others to fall back onto. So if you have gear that is nice, but lower level than what you have now...keep it! It may be your only choice, later. I wish I had kept all my witcher school swords because relics that I had completed my first play through with that were stating I needed to be 65-67 to use again! I had Witcher Wolven gear I couldn't wear until I was 41! Witch made me wish I had saved more of what I had. So I scrapped that save and just kept playing on my main file to accumulate and re-craft/ re-acquire more stuff to throw in stash.

  • CRUSHader726

    my have only 2 tips for you guys: ignor this video & use "food buff going 20 min instead of 10 sec" upgrade

  • Ron Lockhart

    did you just say : stick to the roads at the beginning of the game? Did you actually say that? Just wait a second. Did you actually say that? Stick to the roads at the beginning of the game? Are yup kidding me? STICK TO THE ROADS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME!!!!!!@@ This is a tip? A TIP YOU GODDAMNED MUTHAFUCKAZ! !! HOW DARE YOU!! STICKING TO THE ROADS IS BEYOND COMMON SENSE!! YOU DONT EVEN HAVE TO BE ALIVE TO KNOW THAT AND YOU CALL THAT A TIP??? THERE ARE NO CAPS CAP ENOUGH TO CONVEY MY INDIGNATION!!! AND I'LL PRETEND THAT WHILE I WAS TYPING THIS THAT I DIDN'T HEAR YOU SAY SOMETHING ABOUT LEARNING HOW TO PARRY!?? AS CHRIST BEARS WITNESS I WILL SEE YOU SUFFER FOR THIS!!!

  • Omar Animations

    Thanks for the description shorts cuz u saved me 10 mins

  • Steven Holt

    Found your video helpful as I've just got back into gaming recently. Started of with assassins creed black flag, picked up this as it was getting good reviews. Im not really into shoot em ups, this type of game appeals to me. I've not even broke the seal in the game yet as I'll keep it for the weekend. I'm going into this game totally blind, I'm glad I found your video. Been plying with alien isolation as well. This game looks huge from what I've been reading. Thanks!

  • Beast n' Brushes

    This helped a lot, potions had me worried for the first 3hours of gameplay lol

  • Alfa Omega

    Alright mate, thanks for this video. I know I'm a bit late regarding this game as I've only just got a PS4 but I'm looking forward to getting it and wasting most of my life playing it. Keep up the good work fella 👍

  • Doug Gil

    Thanks for this; I was about to give up on the game but now I'm gonna go give it another shot using the tips.

  • ryushev2000

    Aard and Axii are life.

  • Hassen Noormahomed

    Much appreciated I have been playing for over 10hrs and still feel like I don't know what's going on. I suppose that is partly because I am playing on hard. Anyway thanks this will help a lot

  • solidsnake58

    I wish I had found this video before I started playing!!!

  • Gerrit Valkering

    tip: take all the notices at a notice board, they reveal the ? in the area

  • LK Snow

    what gears are best to craft during the story line? griffin gear? im lvl 13 atm.

  • LaFajj90

    Great vid. Thanks for the advise, I've been waiting for the GOTYear edition. Got it, now time to rock it out. Love the nag riding games.

  • Rico Fuego

    I can't level up...HELP !!!!

  • SteamGiveaways

    Beastiary - beast-iary, not bestiary.You're a cool geezer, subbed

  • Dolev

    Hey very nice vido. I rly dont know what sword I should buy.

  • Rico Fuego

    Oh and I'm totally freaking lost when it comes to crafting, etc. HELP !!!!! lol

  • Captain Raz

    Is dismantling really worth? Seems so expensive! I usually sell my junk. Shouldn't I? Money is really scarce with so much to buy, more scarce if I need so much money to dismantle.

  • Can't think of a name !

    I don't know y I'm watching dis because I'm level 46😂

  • blacktiger994

    I would not recommend putting points into Axii. Don't get me wrong, it's fun for 1 on 1 combat, but overall you will be fighting multiple opponents. For offensive signs, go with Aard. Just.... Just go with aard.

  • Kunal Kishor

    My tip:-If you are surrounded by a group of enemies and one or two of them turns out to be an archer or crossbow men, kill them first they usually have low health and are kind of annoying as they do quite a lot of damage.

  • Stephen Rybacki

    Very helpful, thank you.

  • betacase07

    Ive never had this much trouble on a game, like fuck. I went down to Easy and ive I've avoided sidequest altogether sticking to the main quest only. Leveling up takes a while. But learned some things and see if i can finish this damn game.

  • Damian Guzman

    one of the best tricks ive learned is when you are gonna loot a chest and if it has a weapon or armor that is common if you just walk away a few steps it will change colour to magic or the yellow one cant remember the name but i have not tried this with relic items cause they are already great, ive done this everytime and get better gear all the time. great video man

  • 5055672439

    I'm sooooo bad at combat omf

  • John Carter

    This will help me a lot just got the game today

  • Psycho Giraffe

    I'm playing witcher 3 on death march and even when playing on that difficulty having alcoholest in your inventory when u meditate replenishes your potions ... did that make sense idk haha this games easy as now

  • Kyle Anthony

    Hey great video man my friend has the game and he said there is so much sex in it so I don't really want it any more but great video you convince me to get it.
