Disambig-icon.png This article is about the character tree in The Witcher. For information about the sign, see Quen.

Quen attribute governs the use of the sign. There are five basic levels, each with a selection of attributes, and five levels of special attack (Student, Apprentice, Specialist, Expert, and Master). The full Quen attribute tree can be found below.

Contrary to its description, the Quen Sign renders Geralt invincible rather than providing damage absorption based on Sign level.
