In Patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With Patch 1.08, the Wolven Hour potion has been introduced. This potion appears in Geralt's inventory once the the patch is installed. It reduces the level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour giving players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in Patch 1.05 but became unusable after Patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values.
