Having a hard time in The Witcher 3? Well there's no need to fret. Here's a run down of some pretty simple tips that will help you get to slaying foes in no time.
Just play it like Bloodborne and you'll be fine.
right, dodge is your best friend.
Exactly! But after watching some people's streams, they somehow really struggle with the concept of dodging simple telegraphed attacks. Are the controls bad or do they just suck?
where is a legit inn where i can rest to refill my life bar? the difficulty im playing on, i guess, disables life refill with meditation.
@ Xer0_SiN. Just change the difficulty so that you can meditate to fill health, afterwards you can change difficulty back..
No, meditation and good preparation with potions are your best friend. Bloodborne lol
The only struggle I am having is Reading the small text! Jesus... cant they make the font size bigger? I can barely read some of the items. This is fine for PC but for consoles, man... way to small.
+1 on the font size. My god it is terrible. Last night I spent almost as much time standing up so I could be closer to the screen as a I did sitting in my recliner. I just had an eye exam 2 months ago, I'm 20/20. I sit 10 feet from a 65 inch TV. But when I loot a container I'll be damned if I have the slightest clue what I'm picking up. I think I might just wait for an update. It isn't worth straining my eyes every time I want to look at my inventory.
@UnHoly_One I agree the font is tiny and I have to squint a little. It needs an option to enlarge. However are you sure your not exaggerating a little? I sit maybe 3 meters from my 50 inch and I can read everything. But it does strain my eyes a little!
@JamesBondage but that will mess up the Trophy/achievement if going for it on the harder difficulties.
I'm not exaggerating. My TV is 65 inches. I sit 10 feet from it. I can guess at the descriptions of items in my inventory or a loot box, but only if I sit forward in my chair to get closer and strain to see them, and even then I'm not sure if I've got it right or not.
no bloodborne is good but this game controls like a pos everything has some crazy unnecessary delay. @ThanatosDMC the controls are crap I don't even know how they thought they were okay maybe the people play testing the game were blind.
thank god I'm not the only one experiencing some sort of input delay, makes accurate movement really difficult, hopefully this will be fixed
Sometimes I try to cast a sign and nothing happens at all. Then I get my face ripped off immediately afterwards.
"Well there's no need to fret. Here's a run down of some pretty simple tips that will help you get to slaying foes in no time.......If you can get it to work or not crash all the time" Fixed.
Didn't stop Skyrim or Fallout winning multiple GOTY awards. Its a western game so it's game breaking problems will be totally ignored.
It's from Poland.
Which is a western developer...
Poland is in Europe. Europe is a part of the western world.
sorry..am i stupid or something. isn't games made in the USA western developed?
@SinisterKieran You really think the USA is the only western country in the world? Is Japan the only eastern country in the world? Google will help you out search western civilazation or something along those lines.
Man I feel bad for you guys I haven't had not one problem.
Me either, but that's the sacrifice I chose when I opted for PS4 over PC. FORGIVE ME.
From what i've heard people have been experiencing issues on all platforms, i haven't had any 7 hours in on the PC version yet.
I'm playing on PC and I honestly haven't had a single crash and very few bugs. For me it seems like a very polished game, especially for an open world game.
Same here, I'm playing it on 1440p ultra and the only time I've noticed frame dips is during the cuts scenes, strangely
it's a great game, but I wouldn't say "very polished".....it has more loading screens than any game I've ever played and some of those loads are LOOOOOONG! I'm playing on ps4 - I don't know if pc version is plagued with load screens - I sure hope not.
There aren't any loading screens on PC except when you travel, and then for me it's literally less than a second
me neither, but im on ps4. thats a lie actually. i got some wierd color issues fighting a pack of wolves in that swamp with the cart with all the loot. u know that place.. me only complaint is some of the mechanics. getting on/off your horse, having to micro manage your stance when looting, alot of the times. theres others.
No problems for me yet either I'm 10 hrs in on PS4. That's the risk with big open world games because game testers can't simulate 1 million people playing so many different ways.
Still waiting for you to tell us what your 1 problem is =)
Can anyone give me tips on crafting and loot. I know what they are and can usually get my head around them in games such as The Last of Us but i don't play many RPGs? Thanks
By crafting do you mean equipment like armor and weapons? Or are you referring to the alchemy (making bombs, potions etc..)
AFAIK, it's a lot of deconstructing other items and finding the right smith with the ability to craft specific items.
Ive been playing on hard (Blood and broken bones or something like that) The only problem ive had in any fight is when there's about 5-6 badguys bum rushing you at once. Seems to me the most important thing you can do is kinda a little distance and just pick them to pieces.
Yeah same here
It feels like you are controlling a 800kg man with rubber feet. And with some kind of muscular problems as you go from walk to sprinting into walls in a flash. Horrible control mechanisms in this game.
I'm not finding the movement as tough as TW2 on 360. It's not like using a hunter in Bloodborne, that's for sure, but after a few hours, I'm getting used to it. I'm sure I will continue to improve as I have roughly 150 hours of game time left apparently.
Ya it took me along time to get used to W3 controls, especially after coming off of Bloodborne. He really is a tank.
I don't like it that I have to stop moving in order to interact with something, like picking flowers for example That's my only complaint
I like how all of these hints are spoiler free
All good tips and don't forget if you're loaded with loot you can fast travel for convenience.
Nice! I didn't know about the aard blast on the beehives. I'm farming beehives tonight lol.
