Who doesn’t love The Witcher 3? It’s a masterpiece that delivers on every level. No wonder new and new players are starting their journey on Roach’s back. And many of them, as well as the players who have already experienced Geralt’s adventure, have questions about the game and its characters. Let’s try to find the answers.

How long is The Witcher 3?

The main storyline will take approximately 50 hours to complete, but if you want to get the precious 100% and discover all the secrets and easter eggs, be prepared for even 200 hours of playtime. You can also extend your journey in Geralt’s shoes by playing two outstanding expansions: Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.

How to heal?

Geralt doesn’t heal automatically, so healing is one of the essential mechanics in The Witcher 3. The most effective way to restore Geralt’s health points is through meditation. However, you can use it only if there are no enemies around. To heal during battles, you have to use food and potions. 

How to get to Kaer Morhen in The Witcher 3?

Kaer Morhen is the ruins of the witchers’ stronghold and one of the most important locations in The Witcher series. In The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, it’s where Geralt and his friends go to prepare for the battle against The Wild Hunt. To get there, you have to use the fast travel system. Just use any signpost, then switch from the region to the world map. You’ll find Kaer Morhen in the far north.

How to level up?

The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt is an RPG. Hence, it’s essential to upgrade Geralt’s stats and abilities. To level up, you need to earn experience points by completing quests, killing monsters, and crafting items. The best way to get significant amounts of XP is by fulfilling contracts. The easiest way to find a contractor is to open the world map and look for a quest marker or find them by exploring the map. The most challenging and rewarding contracts are those requiring Geralt to face particularly tough opponents. Each time you level up, you’ll receive ability points that you can use to upgrade the witcher’s skills. You’ll also get ability points by finding and activating Places of Power.

How to play Gwent?

Gwent is a popular card game in the Witcher universe. To play it, you have to collect a deck of at least 22 unit cards and up to 10 special cards. The goal is to win two out of three rounds by having more points than your opponent. You can learn the rules of Gwent by talking to Aldert Geert in White Orchard and then playing a tutorial match. Once you have a deck, you can challenge NPCs to a game of Gwent. 

Elden Ring: A Revolutionary Soulslike Game?

It’s a deckbuilding game, so you have to constantly look for better cards. You can buy some of them from merchants, while others can be found as loot or earned by completing quests. The Witcher 3 features a lot of Gwent-related quests. Hence, this mini-game can expand and diversify your journey. If you like Gwent, you can also play the separately released Gwent: Witcher Card Game.

How old are Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, and Vesemir?

Many players want to know how old the main characters are at the time of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt events. The most devoted fans tried to figure it out, looking for hints in Andrzej Sapokowski’s novels and short stories. According to them, Geralt is probably 98-99 years old. Yennefer is at least one year older than The White Wolf. Consequently, she’s 99 or even 100 years old. Vesemir, the eldest of the witchers, is approximately 175. However, you have to keep in mind that both witchers and sorceresses were able to cheat time using magical means, such as elixirs, mutations, and spells. As a result, they all look much younger than they really are.

Should video games be hundreds of hours long?

When it comes to Ciri, she’s 21. The interesting thing about her age is that although she was born in 1251, she was sent to another world for a period of time, and when she returns to our reality, it’s already 1272.

How to dye Geralt’s armor?

Blood and Wine is an outstanding expansion that broadens The Witcher III: Wild Hunt with a new region (Toussaint), a compelling story arc, and some new features, such as painting your armor. To change the look of Geralt’s armor, you have to have dyes that can be bought from merchants or found as loot. Once you have the dye, just use it on the gear pieces you want to color. 

How to romance Triss in The Witcher 3?

In The Witcher II: The Wild Hunt, Geralt can romance either Triss or Yennefer. To romance Triss in The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt, you’ll need to make sure that you complete the side quest titled “A Matter of Life and Death.” The mission will become available after you finish the main story mission titled “Ciri’s Story: The King of the Wolves.” At the end of the side quest, you’ll have a chance to kiss Triss. You have to do this to continue your relationship with her. Otherwise, you’ll close this door for good. Fortunately, you’ll still have a chance to romance Yennefer. You can also try to get involved in a romantic relationship with both sorceresses. However, we must warn you that it will end up with a funny yet unsatisfying cutscene.

How to use a crossbow?

A crossbow is a special type of weapon in The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. To use it, you have to purchase the Crossbow Training skill from the Archery tree. The crossbow is quite effective against flying enemies and those with hard-to-reach weak points. You can also use it to shoot down objects or distract opponents. Thanks to the Crossbow Training skill, you can reload the crossbow much faster. The only downside is that it’s quite a slow and noisy weapon. And since we’re talking about the crossbow, you can use it in most of the releases included in our Medieval Games Collection.

How to dismantle junk?

Dismantling is a great way to get crafting materials in The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. To do it, you must find a blacksmith or an armorer.

If you want to have even more detailed graphics, remove the weight limit, enable the AutoLoot feature, or alter the game in some other way, you should mod The Witcher 3. The process is simple. The first thing you need to do is find the mods you want to install. The best place to look for them is Nexus Mods. Moreover, on the Nexus page, you’ll find a mod manager called Vortex. Using it is the easiest and safest way to install and manage your Witcher 3 mods. 

How to make bombs?

In The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, bombs play an important role. They can help you defeat powerful enemies or destroy enemy camps and nests.
