So I’m level 100 in the witcher 3 and l wanted to see if any one knows if this is the cap or not. Ive researched a bit and there are conflicting answers. Also, I’ve noticed that I’m no longer gaining experience point.
Witcher 3 is my favorite game of all time, so I love talking about it. So who is everyone’s non-main character? To clarify, essentially I mean besides Geralt, Yen, Triss, and Ciri.

On July 27, 2020, Netflix announced The Witcher: Blood Origin, a limited series from The Witcher universe. Blood Origin will be a six part, live-action limited series, and a prequel to the streamer’s series The Witcher. Set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher, the show will chart the origins of the very first Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.
FULL ARTICLE HERE:
I’m new to this game just wondering
Let's be honest here this would be a real dick move from Geralt as he would allow his friends to die, while if you let Radovid win then a lot of innocent people will die too, but at the very least Geralt will retain his witcher neutrality in that case.
However, I will now explain why doing this is such a dick move:
Roche saved Geralt's life TWICE
Those who never played the Witcher 2 before know that spoilers are ahead.
In the prologue of the 2nd game Roche helps Geralt escape from captivity, as he was accused of killing Foltest, by giving him the key to unchain himself. And while we can argue that he is later using Geralt or that it wasn't the same as just releasing him from his cell it doesn't change the fact that he is still alive thanks to him. If Roche had not helped him then Geralt would have been skinned alive and hanged soon after.
The 2nd time Roche saves Geralt's life is during "Reason of State" itself and a lot of people have no idea how deep this act is.
Roche constantly says that he is willing to sacrifice anything for Temeria. And yet during this quest he springs the trap for Radovid early, just to save Geralt's life, knowing full well that the fate of Temeria hanged on the success of this mission.
This shows how much Geralt truely means to him as he actually put his life above the fate of Temeria in that instance.
Not to mention you can have Roche and Ves help during "The Battle of Kaer Morhen". And when it's over you can talk to them and ask them how to "repay" them for this? In which case Ves will smile and say that they will think of something. Well letting them die soon after would be one hell of a way to "repay" them.
Their death and Dijkstra's betrayal is all Geralt's fault
A lot of people complain that Dijkstra's betrayal comes out of nowhere and is half-assed.
Well actually no it's not. Contrary to what you think he did not intend to betray them from the start. Originally he most likely intended to negotiate with Emhyr and have Redania become a vassal state of Nilfgaard just like Temeria. However, that all changed when Geralt revealed to him Emhyr's weak points.
Dijkstra knew that killing Radovid ment turning over the whole north to the Empire, but after learning of Emhyr's weak points he found a way to win the war even without him. But there were 2 problems, first Radovid had to die either way and second he had to betray his fellow conspirators. Because if Temeria turned over to Nilfgaard he would not be able to win even with the knowledge that Geralt provided.
So yes his betrayal is half-assed, but not because it was poorly written, but because he did not have any time to prepare better. He had to act right there and he had to act fast. This is also why he asks Geralt to leave as he is aware he may lose this fight as it's a rushed plan. If he were planning it from the start then he obviously would have prepared better and Geralt's presence would not make any difference.
Dijkstra is a hypocrite
In a previous conversation he says that he "no longer believes in ideas" yet now he wishes to create a north empire himself.
He also says that "war never solves problems" yet now he wishes to wage war on Nilfgaard himself.
He is also the one who asks Geralt to hang his neutrality in the first place, and help assassinate Radovid, yet now he asks him to act neutral when it's no longer good for him.
Simply put he lost his head after he found a way to become the most powerful man in the nothern kingdoms and if Geralt let's him have his way then everything that follows will be his fault alone.
Is there anyway to do this quest without the map? I dont seem to have it, so either i sold it on accident or theres a glitch. I know where the portals supposed to be,so you can start the quest, but, When i go there theres nothing, no portal.
I was wondering if Toussaint is part of the original game. I have the Game of the Year edition of Witcher 3, and thus I have all the DLCs including B&W. Is Toussaint available only if you have the B&W DLC, or is it also available without B&W? And if so, can someone please explain what you can do in Toussaint.
I had this idea in my mind for quite a long time. Depending on the ending in W3, players start off as Empress Cirilla or Witcher Cirilla. First there will be some mini quests (as in the beginning of W3) to get used to new gameplay.
For Witcher Cirilla it’s obviously some monster hunting and playing Gwent (for this I see two possibilities: 1. Upgraded Gwent with some new cool features or smth. 2. A completely new card/board game).
For Empress Cirilla it can be her life in the castle (giving out orders, talking to Emhyr and general Voorhis, horse rides and balls and etc.).
The game can be even more interesting if some political twist happens, like Aen Elle/Northern Kingdoms declare war against Nilfgaard. It can even be the main reason for Ciri’s story to begin. For instance, she can choose on which side to be (like in Witcher 2). I didn’t really think of the story any farther, but surely she sets off for an adventure, meeting Geralt, Triss, Yennefer and others along the way.
Moving on to the locations and realms. As Ciri is known for traveling through different worlds I wish part of the quests would happen in the world of Aen Elle, but also include Novigrad, Skellige and Velen, maybe renovate them in some way. Also I wish they could add Brokilon Forest or Dol Blathanna.
For characters, I wish they could bring back Iorveth and add some more characters from the books, like Milva for instance.
That’s pretty much it, please write in the comments what you imagine Witcher 4 to be like, maybe add something else to my idea, I’d really love to know what you think!
SPOILERS FOR BAPTISM OF FIRE
I’m reading Baptism of Fire right now and my mind can’t decide what to imagine Regis’ appearance as. I keep imagining the Regis from Gwent, B&W, and the Tower of the Swallows book cover. His ability to keep calm when Geralt has a sword to his throat and his daring attitude to ask what the price on his head would be just makes me think of Loki’s cockiness. Therefore, I believe that Tom Hiddleston would be a perfect role for Regis in a future Netflix season, with an aged look of course. Otherwise, he would make for a good Nilfgaardian. Thoughts?
I was wondering how the conjunction of spheres was an interesting event which drags the story a little into the realm of science fiction but not a big problem there.
But when i learn about Ciri jumping to other worlds and a world where an advanced civilization has metal in their heads and wages war from a distance like a star wars movie i just felt like the world lost its essence.
I began thinking how they must obviously be more powerful than the wild hunt and would have figured out how to control inter world portals if a sage like Avallach can. They would have know about Ciri and no one could stop them if they wanted to use her as a source of energy. Also the portals always open up on habitable planets and not the space in between or near a star.
I would be interesting if there were limited no. of worlds like 9 or 5 each with a different dominating race (including one which humans destroyed ) can also explain how magic came in the conjunction of spheres from a specific world and leaked to other worlds.

I recently started reading the witcher saga and I just finished "the last wish". I loved it but I just don't get the end. Does the explanation of what happens to Iola show up later in the following books? If not could someone explain it to me please? Thanks
I'm new here btw : )
Hello, so I have heard some reviews saying that the books are good in Polish but due to translation aren’t the best in English. Could somebody give their opinion on what they think about the books?
