post #501 of 5154
I like the move at the end, I'll have to remember that.

I'd really like to start crafting some cool stuff, but even after 20 hrs I'm only level 6. It'll be a while until I get to the interesting things. Somehow I already have some lvl 33 diagrams.

How do you upgrade your armor like that. I am still beggining, at level 9 but I don't know how to upgrade my armor besides finding a better armor diagram and crafting an entirely new one

Witcher School armor will come in the form of Treasure Hunt quests under your log. You'll need to stumble upon them as there's no direct quest to bring you to begin a hunt for set pieces but a lot of quests will bring you near those areas that can possibly start it. Some guides will probably tell you where to initially start them if there's any out atm.

What should I do with trash items? Sell them or save up money to have them broken up into ingredients/parts/components to use for crafting and/or alchemy? It takes quite a bit of money to have trash dis-assembled into useful ingredients to craft things.... Maybe there some specific rare ingredients for crafting that are RARE and should always be extracted from trash? I just have no idea which way to go..? My inventory space/weight is extremely low due to trash!

I know, I'm just confused about stage 1, stage 2 etc. Al I have seen so far is making new completely deifferent armor.. There has been no stages

So far after the new patch I'm getting substantially better performance with hairowrks on. The only visual mods I think that are really needed and can't be covered in the ini are:

1) Better looking water. Is it me or does the water look like absolute crap unless its a small puddle or a raging storm?

2) Alternate animations for windy weather blowing the vegitation. The animation they have is fine but its looped and its obvious, they needed alternate loops to be played at random or a much longer animation.

3) Better grass. The problem isn't the textures but rather the hideous mesh design. The mesh uses the most inefficient coverage technique on a scale large enough that it becomes obvious. We needed grass meshes shaped like a V so less grass covered more area (thus meaning better performance or equal perfromance with more grass) which also happened to reduce the surface area where the mesh clipped with the ground. Instead we got liiliiil shaped grass.

4) More diverse weather. I get it, the region is stormy but this isn't tornado valley and there isn't a storm every 2 seconds. Calm weather in appropriate areas would be nice as would be crazy, crazy storms along the coast.

5) Hairworks enabled on goats and other critters that don't have it. If Far Cry 4 can pull it off so can Witcher 3.

6) And as a personal touch which I know not everyone would like: 1st person camera that rotates with the character head and has free movement to loop up and down. If done right think of it as Dying Light except instead of zombies its horrific monsters and instead of not being very hard you'll have to have crazy situational awareness since you don't have an overpowered grapling hook. It could potentially support VR (can you say motion sickness?).

Still loving the game though I'm horribly underleveled right now I decided to play through as much gwent content as possible asap so at level 4 I was in Nilfy contemplating going into the high stakes tourney. I decided not to, I want better cards before I do that though I could probably do it now. I rarely lose. I'll share my build. There is room for improvement, I'll mark the cards I intent to replace. Most of the cards listed are availible early and it tends to brute force its way through situations and gains pretty good draw advantage.

Northern Realm

Leader: Foltest The Siegemaster (commander's horn on siege, doesn't stack with commander's horn)

Commander's Horn x2 (doubles the points of units
Blue Stripes Commando x3 (4 points, melee, double points for all Blue Stripes Commando if another Blue Stripes Commando is present )
Cinfrid Reavers Dragon Hunters x2 (5 points, ranged, double points for all Cinfrid Reavers Dragon Hunters is another Cinfrid Reavers Dragon Hunters is present)
Catapult x2 (8 points, siege, double points for all Catapult is another Catapult is present)
Yennefer x1 (7 points, ranged, hero, selects a units card in your discard pile and places it on your side of the field)
Dun Banner Medic x1 (5 points, siege, selects a units card in your discard pile and places it on your side of the field)
Price Stannis x1 (5 points, melee, when this card would be placed on your side of the board, even by the effect of Yennefer and Dun Banner, it is placed on your opponent's side of the board and you draw 2 cards)
Sigismund Dijktra x1 (4 points, melee, when this card would be placed on your side of the board, even by the effect of Yennefer and Dun Banner, it is placed on your opponent's side of the board and you draw 2 cards)
Vernon Rouche x1 (10 points, melee, hero)
Trebuchet x2 (6 points, siege)
Ballista x1 (6 points, siege)
Siege Tower x1 (6 points, siege)
Vesemir x1 (6 points, melee)
Dethmold x1 (6 points, ranged)
Emiel x1 (5 points, melee, replacable)
Ves x1 (5 points, melee, replacable)
Sigfied x1 (5 points, melee, replacable)
Keira x1 (5 points, ranged, replacable)

24 cards, 22 are units. This ensures that by probability you don't end up with a crap hand. In theory every card in the deck should be a hero or have abilities. Don't be silly and cram both into decks. Hero cards may have high stats and be immune to other cards but other cards in combination produce higher stats therefore a deck based on them is best suited to abuse the crap out of weather cards).

Couple Shots from Tonight. I wish I didn't have to work so Much.

And Hairworks is On. SLI 980s at 100% load each on ultra @ 1440p is netting me 60 FPS Constantly. To my knowledge I have not updated the newest patch. Unless GOG does it by itself. I dont use a loader. Just the Shortcut on my Desktop.

I know at the end of the first treasure hunt for the base Feline armor it gave me the follow up for Enhanced which is stage two.

I just finished up for tonight at 6/7 found for the base Bear school armor. I'll post here tomorrow and let you know if it auto gives you the follow up on the second stage.

As for regular armor those pieces aren't able to be upgraded, just able to be slotted if applicable. There's only 4 sets of witcher armor with different stages AFAIK.

Few notes
Patch 1.03
1.Solves 970m dipped. Its running ultra/high combo with no hairworks. Fps 40-70s
2.Gsync lowers the fps a bit
3.Steam still syncs graphic settings between my desktop n laptop.

After playing longer now. Game is beut. Very well done graphically. But the combat system is silly.
