And you mentioned something about getting rid of the mutagen tree before starting NG+?

I also did a quick experiment with udvik vs feline fighting the last Griffin from the 'old man painting' (something like that) quest and I lasted quite a bit longer with the udvik build but sign damage dropped considerably vs the feline. I was also killed in just a couple of swipes from the griffin but it took about 4-5 from it to kill me with udvik.
I admit decoction and potions I rarely use, so far I've had no issues without them. I don't remember fighting who you mentioned, everyone after I got the grandmaster feline armor was easy, up until that last griffin which I had a surprisingly hard time killing with either armor until I remembered how to handle them (I hadn't fought one in a really long time before then).
Undvik is not for monsters with the exception of specters. Undvik is for sword/bludgeon/crossbow protection so humans and non-humans (elves/dwarves). Ursine is for monsters (except for specters) and beasts (wolves/bears/boars/panthers).

Ah, I had it backwards then. Crafting armors at the extreme tail end of the game is expensive, I went from 31000 crowns down to just over 8000 just crafting the ursine armor up to mastercrafted

Please tell me this is NG+

If you're just that into Gwent, wait for the standalone game dropping in a few months,

So, sacrelige it is.

Second playthrough, I'm 255 hours in.

Sure, I'll just wait a few months, got the beta soon.

I completed the game twice, and since GOG had installed it on my C drive (I didn't see any option for where I wanted installed) I removed it to free up some space.

Just got a new GPU. Keen to see how it looks on 1070 instead of the 280X + 280 with all the fun that goes with xfire...

Downloading now. smile.gif

edit:
Downloaded and played for 1/2 hour.
Gfx to ultra quality @ 1440 - didn't drop below 58 FPS.
It's nice to get a new GPU. smile.gif

Yeah I just got a gpu upgrade from 290 to 1070. With the monitor upgrade of 1440p it's amazing. The expansions are just so vast. So much to do and such high quality. There are bugs here and there though, not totally polished but for an expansion being so inexpensive, so much value.

Just felt the need to stop in and say that Yontek is my new favorite character. Too bad he's only in one quest. Wazzocks!
