This guide will help you to reach the heavenly euphoric heights of devastation. With a list of the very best steel and silver swords on offer, you are going to know exactly where to go and what to do to get your hands on the best swords on the game.
Apparently, there are lots of players who return to the game of Witcher 3 once again. Here is a list of the best swords that the players can use in the game of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Best Swords in The Witcher 3
Here are some the best swords in the game of The Witcher 3:
Viper swords (Steel & Silver)
This is the best starter sword on offer. Also, it is the first gear set that you will be able to unlock. Viper swords can be quickly discovered and made without leaving White Orchard. You only need to go to the Cemetery to the north of the Mill signpost for the silver blueprint, and the Castle Ruins to the west of the Ransacked Village signpost for the steel blueprint.
These two swords have higher stats across the board than most weapons which you can find this early on. Also, they both give a decent opportunity to poison opponents with each hit. You will not discover anything better until you head into Velen and Novigrad.
Iris Sword (Steel)
A Relic-tier sword is only available with the Hearts of Stone DLC, Iris sword is one of the best steel swords in the game. Besides being a really powerful weapon, it has the unique effect of building up a charge. When expended, it delivers a great powerful strike with a knockdown effect even stronger than Aard. However, at the cost of a portion of the player’s health. To get Geralt’s mitts on this sword, you have to work your way through the quest of “Whatsoever a Man Soweth…” This sword is going to be given as a reward.
Toussaint Sword (Steel)
Unbelievably strong steel blade which is only available with the Blood and Wine DLC, this Toussaint sword combines the bleed effect of the Feline swords with the armor-piercing of the Manticore swords. Need to know that you will need to make the Relic-level variant of this Toussaint sword to unleash its full potential, because the lower-rarity Magic variant is not quite as powerful. You are able to find the blueprint for the craftable Relic variant of the Toussaint Sword by following or completing the quest “The Last Exploits of Selina’s Gang” in Toussaint.
Feline swords (Steel & Silver)
A solid gear set, this Feline witcher sword features an array of really powerful swords with a focus on high damage, bleed chance and critical hit chance. Also, it does not hurt that if you were to equip all Feline gear, you are going to get advantage from some great potent damage boosts as well.
Feline swords become one of the best swords in the early-game or the late-game. After you hit Level 17, the basic Feline swords are going to be your best choice of weaponry. For your information, the Mastercrafted and Grandmaster Feline swords are strong contenders for the overall deadliest weapons out there.
Manticore swords (Steel & Silver)
Only available with the Blood and Wine DLC, the blades of the Manticore witcher gear set are strong contenders for the deadliest weapons in the game. But unlike their Feline companions, these Manticore swords are only available in their Grandmaster form. It means that they certainly are not an early-game option.
After you are up to Level 40, you are going to be hard pushed to discover better than these two armor-piercing blades, that alongside a big boost to critical hit damage, also can deliver several of the most punishing blows in the entire game.
Belhaven Blade (Steel)
The Belhaven Blade is also one of the best swords in the game of Witcher 3. A Blood and Wine-exclusive powerhouse with a staggering over 100 percent bonus to critical hit damage, alongside increases to crit chance, poison chance, and Aard intensity. The diagram can be discovered as part of some hidden treasure in Toussaint, deep in the Sansretour River which cuts through the centre of the map.
Aerondight is a best-in-class silver sword which is available exclusively. Same with Iris sword, this Aerondight sword has the ability to charge up during a battle with successive blows. Each successful blow will increase your damage by 10 percent. After your charge caps out you are going to crit on every single hit. Killing an opponent with a full charge will boost the weapon’s damage permanently. If that sounds like several absolutely crazy damage potential, you are absolutely right.
Certainly, the Bloodsword will not live up to the standard already set by Aerondight. However for a mid-game choice, it is still a bloody good weapon in the game. Following a similar path to the Feline sword, this Bloodsword sword focuses on direct physical damage before anything else, giving significant boosts to critical hit chance and damage, bleed opportunity, and also dismemberment opportunity.
Actually, there are two Scavenger Hunt quests that will result in the Bloodsword diagram. The first is Inheritance, that you can find in Skellige (suggested level is 14). The second is Battlefield Loot that you can find in Velen (suggested level is 20).
Another best sword in the game of Witcher 3 is Gesheft. Probably, this is the only Silver Sword to give the Aerondight a run for its money. Indeed, it is part of the Blood and Wine DLC. The two paid DLCs gave us the best swords in the game. Curiously, this Gesheft sword comes in two variants. There is the unique loot drop variant, that you can get from the “Beyond Hill and Dale…” quest and which gives a flat boost to the intensity of all five Signs. Also, there is the craftable variant, which gives almost exactly the same array of traits and bonuses as the Belhaven Blade.
