Enchanting is added in by the Hearts of Stone expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

It introduces 2 types: runewords (for weapons) and glyphwords (for armor). These can give significant bonuses to a piece of equipment, but would destroy any upgrades already set into it, and fill all upgrade slots on that armor/weapon, preventing the addition of new runes.

To get enchantments unlocked, one must help the runewright at Upper Mill.

Tips Edit

  • Runewords and glyphwords can only be added to an item with at least 3 slots.
    • For a fee, the runewright can add up to 3 slots to an item.
  • A runeword will only be active if that particular sword is drawn in combat, so if you wish to have it available on both swords, you'll need to get it activated on both.
  • If you enchant any Witcher set gear but then upgrade that gear to a higher tier, the enchantment will be destroyed in the process, freeing up the slots (this does not happen with inset stones).
