Unlike most sprawling open worlds The Witcher 3 has a lot of different difficulty settings and the hardest one happens to actually be pretty tough. Lucky for you we have a few crucial tips to keep you alive.
It's not really that hard unless you have a really bad understanding of the game.
in the beginning it was a tough for me. once i started leveling up my gear, it became easy.
Im doing side quests first then i proceed on the main quests. I'm like 3-4 levels higher than the recommended levels so it's a piece of cake. I know its a cheap thing to do but those hit boxes are terrible.
I don't feel that its that hard at all really. Especially if you make damn good use of alchemy.
Kicked off the game on the hardest setting,lasted 3 maybe 4 hours tops and had to drop it.Now I have a better understanding of the game if I go for a second play through then I may give it another bash.Boosting for the bleed/burn/poising achievement I had to turn the difficulty to max and seemed to be able to hold my own very well at level 16,witcher armour and a shedload of upgrades so a second playthrough seems possible to nets those 65gamescore.
can't stop laughing. one of the subheadings is "Check your bestiality" hahaha. i think the author meant bestiary and this is the funniest mistake i have ever seen.
you're right lol
i've found that leveling up quen & yrden make it a lot easier. the alternative of quen lets you gain vitality from hits, and alt of yrden slows/attacks & stumbles enemies/destroys projectiles. i'm not even using sun & stars anymore as it's next to useless after having these upgrades. also, there is another skill that you can level up to give you 100% damage reduction when dodging/rolling. these skills have probably helped me way more than oils and potions. bombs are pretty helpful as well.
Cows and pearls. :)
