I got a gaming laptop in March and played Subnautica, Fallout 4, Skyrim, and Oblivion(old, but on my list to go back to). During the Epic sale, though, I was able to pick up Witcher 3, with all DLC, for $15. I actually flipped over to Steam and paid a penny more so it is in my steam library.
Anyway, I loaded it up today and, indeed, it ran just fine on my new laptop. I have never played a Witcher game before, though 1 and 2 are also in my library. I thought I’d share some questions and thoughts and if there is no interest, please feel free to let this thread drop like a rock.
I used the tutorial mode to play a prologue(dream sequence, it turns out) with Geralt, Yen, and Ciri. I am still using tutorials as I go through the game.
Questions so far:
Should I be taking weapons and parts from every body I find? Is this like Elder Scrolls game where I am continually upgrading and getting new weapons to increase attack power? I saw a “common” mace on a body and left it. I thought the game said he always carries 1 steel sword and 1 silver sword.
I am near to leveling up and am wondering what skills you would all consider essential. If this were Skyrim, I would be telling you my goal is to make a fighter with some healing magic powers. Perhaps this game just makes you level up everything instead of specializing, though?
Anyone else play this using PC controls? I have an external mouse and am attempting to play it with mouse and keyboard. It’s…well, it’s OK. Not ideal, but I am hoping to play through without needing a controller.
Should I just take every single note off the notice board? Any reason not to take them?
Gorgeous game, even early on. All I’ve done is finish the opening, get to the first town, talk to the people in a bar/pub, and complete 1 side-quest off the mission board. I just accepted a Witcher Contract for a ghost near a well.
The side-quest I completed was finding a brother thought-to-be-dead on the battlefield. He wasn’t dead, quest completed.
