re: Tips for a Witcher 3 noob?
I've been playing Thronebreaker and it is even bleaker than Witcher 3. Do something nice. You get punished. Stop doing the nice thing, you really get punished.

re: Tips for a Witcher 3 noob?
This thread inspired me to fire Witcher 3 back up. Knocked out about 1/3 of the Skellige ?'s. The completionist in me won't let me leave them alone. Only about 1/3 left in the north side of the map. Might try to finish up if we don't get our power knocked out this weekend.

Update: Did it! Now I can play the game. Man that Skellige Royal Griffin was tough.

Tried my old save file. Found some ugly baby and decided to start a new game because I have no clue what's going on with the story.

How the living frick do you kill the werewolf with the cheating infinite health regen?

Get a weapon with bleeding and it becomes too easy.

Werewolf oil or one of the bombs blocks regen. I seem to recall all the items needed are in that area. Werewolf owned me until I oiled up. Can't imagine that first werewolf on Death March.

re: Tips for a Witcher 3 noob?
Finally got around to finishing up my side quest backlog so I could progress in the main story. Is it just me, or does the story become extremely linear after you find Ciri on the Isle of Mists? I get it’s for narrative and pacing, but total freedom to on-rails was jarring to say the least.

Battle of Kaer Mohren was amazing, though I wish the wife hadn’t been chopping onions during the Vesemir scene. Falling in love with the characters has been my favorite part of the journey thus far, that and pulling Gwent victories out of my arse

re: Tips for a Witcher 3 noob?
Your criticisms are fair. I did really enjoy the narrative and pacing build up though. That being said, it left me wanting more. The game is fine on it's own, in my opinion. And I dont normally purchase or like dlc because it's so frequently used to just tack on playing time.

However, Hearts of Stone first, and then Blood and Wine are just simply amazing. Dont read about them, just do it. You wont regret it. The enemies get way tougher right off the bat. Your mutagen tree changes to help you develop more power. Gwent gets a new deck. And the stories are the best in the game. Hearts of Stone is the best story. Blood and Wine just wraps everything up.

So hoping that Cyberpunk will be equally as enthralling as the Witcher journey.

I'm far from finished but the order is Hearts of Stone and THEN Blood and wine?

Yes, do Hearts of Stone first.

If you have them both installed I think it prompts you to do Hearts of Stone first, not really allowing you to do the other one, but it's been a while.

Definitely do Hearts of Stone first though.

I have the quests for both expansion packs (I keep forgetting it's called DLC now!) on my quest list.

re: Tips for a Witcher 3 noob?
This thread has made me want to pick the game up again. I didn't finish it the first time, but not for lack of interest. I played pretty hardcore for a few weeks, then went on vacation and then got super busy with family and work for a few weeks that by the time I had some free gaming moments I was overwhelmed. Same thing happened to me with Divinity: Original Sin 2.

Think I might have to start a new game after reading this thread though

re: Tips for a Witcher 3 noob?
Similar question, but I have seen some people say to finish Hearts of Stone before the main quest. I’m on the “Final Preparations” quest, and I was wondering if it was worth it to delve into HoS before finishing the main quest line. What say y’all?

I'm not sure why. The wild hunt would be a cakewalk with all the goodies you get from hearts of stone and cheese it up. That whole final quest is super fun and challenging and being over leveled would spoil it.

I went through the normal progression (main story, HoS, Blood and wine) and thought the whole experience was fantastic.

Finish the main game first. There is no storyline crossover or anything like that. No reason to quit before you finish and start something new.
