The Witcher 3 follows Geralt of Rivia on his quest to find Ciri and defeat the wild hunt. Ciri is a young woman who is like a daughter to Geralt. She is a woman of extreme power that many factions and people want to use for their own purposes. The wild hunt is one of those factions.
Throughout the Witcher 3, Geralt will face numerous enemies: bandits, griffins, water hags, foglets, and tons of others. To defeat these enemies, the player will have to come up with a perfect build to easily slice down foes.
This game has its own combat system that the player will have to adapt to if he or she wants to beat the game. Both the sword and magic attacks consume power from the same stamina bar, forcing the player to use good strategy to come out victorious.
Typically I play RPGs as a mage. However, I found myself using the sword more as well as defeating foes easier when I relied on my sword combat. Here is my warrior build:
Fast Attack – Muscle Memory 5/5 – Adds damage to fast attack
Precise Blows 5/5 – Adds Critical hit chance along with critical hit damage
Whirl 5/5 – Makes it so holding down the attack button does a spinning attack ( which dominates enemies and was the only attack I used after I unlocked it)
Crippling Strikes 5/5 – Adds bleeding effect to enemies
Defense – Fleet Footed 5/5 – Damage received while dodging is reduced
Deadly Precision 2/2 – Every adrenaline point adds a chance to kill an opponent instantly
Battle Trance – Resolve 5/5 – Adrenaline point loss are reduced upon taking damage
Razor Focus 5/5 – Gain an adrenaline point when entering combat. Increases adrenaline points generated by sword blows
Quen – Exploding Shield 3/3 – Creates a protective shield and pushes opponents back when it breaks
Essentially Quen is used right before battle and every time your shield breaks. It lets you get hit once without taking damage which comes very handy in battle especially when facing a lot of enemies at once. Sometimes it’s hard to dodge every blow which is where quen plays an essential roll.
Cat School Techniques 1/1 – Each piece of light armor increases critical hit damage by 25% and fast attack damage by 5%
These skills are essential for the warrior build. You can choose the others based upon your play style in order to get you up the skill tree.
