What is the best builds in The Witcher 3? Well, in this page we are going to reveal that information. This guide will show you exactly how you use the best builds on the game. Whether you prefer to use alchemy, magic ,pure combat, or a mix of all three.
The Best Builds in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Below you are able to read four best builds in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Also, we are going to give you with some tips when it comes to putting together your own builds.
- Euphoria build
One of the best builds in The Witcher 3 is Euphoria build, so named for the central which dramatically boosts your sword damage and sign intensity when your Toxicity increases. This build will split itself between swordplay and alchemy. The top half of the tree will focus on increasing the damage dramatically of fast and strong attacks, and also gives a great buff to overall attack power with mutagen synergies. However, the bottom half of the tree is what makes this build very potent, with many alchemy skills offering you to chug multiple decoctions and potions throughout a fight, keeping your toxicity as high as so that your damage per hit becomes really powerful in a short space of time.
- Full Combat build
This is a fun little build. Need to know that it needs a real expert to fully utilize, as it is what you call a “glass cannon” build, huge damage potential, however easily killed. Therefore, you have to be very good at avoiding damage. This is obviously a build which needs liberal use of Quen to succeed. if that is something you struggle with, you are going to discover all sorts of useful tips over at this guide.
This Full Combat build will need skills almost exclusively from the combat tree. But, it also delves far enough into alchemy to unlock the fantastic Synergy skill, that dramatically boosts the attack power that this Full Combat build provides. Completing it all off is the greatly powerful Bloodbath mutation, that like the build itself. Also, it rewards for dodging damage with a mountain of attack power.
- Versatile Tank build
Actually, this is one of my favourite builds in The Witcher 3 to use. Probably, we are going to suggest you to choose this build for a first play through. The Versatile Tank build is best friends with the formidable Ursine Witcher Gear, and together they are going to make Geralt practically invulnerable.
A worthy mix of all three major skill trees: combat, alchemy, and signs, provides you the flexibility which many other builds lack. The potions and decoctions will increase your survivability dramatically. A light emphasis on Quen is going to help you to keep your Vitality high. However, there is also a healthy dose of combat skills and attack power boosting in this build, thus you will be able to hit as hard as any opponent you find. Of course, there is the Second Life mutation at the centre of this build, that is what really pushes you into the realms of near-invulnerability.
- Signs & Magic build
The Sign & Magic build is a result of our attempts to make a viable end-game sign-oriented build, and it finally very similar to a build already explained in great depth on Reddit by a user named Sujiren. So, now we are going to let you read their thoughts here.
In fact, their build pushes Sign Intensity to the absolute max, while we have sacrificed the really tip of this magical spear for a little more survivability, that we think is the main downside to this Sign & Magic build. You are going to see that we have deviated from Sujiren’s build by adding the Refreshment skill and a green mutagen to the bottom-right. In our experience, this gives you only a little more tankiness, while still giving you the potential to create your signs hit like an absolute truck.
Tips for Making your own builds in The Witcher 3
As we promise, here we will also share some tips for making your own build in the game of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. If you interested in planning out and making your own builds in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, read the text below.
- Remember you are able to reset your skills at any time
All you need to do to respect your entire character is purchase a Potion of Clearance. Of course, there are a select few vendors who sell these rare potions. However, your best bet is to talk to Keira Metz after finishing the Magic Lamp quest, or go to Hierarch Square in Novigrad and talk to the merchant in the plaza.
- Utilize the right skills for your stage
Due to the availability of Potions of Clearance, you do not feel constrained to any of these late-game builds. Your main priority must always be selecting the skills that you need at your current stage of the game. For example, many new players would extremely benefit from picking up skills like Survival Instinct or Gourmet.
- Swap out the skills as needed
We always have the Strong Back and Delusion skills on standby if we need them. You do not keep them in your build the whole time, as it is a waste of a slot. If you discover yourself over encumbered, you are able to tag in Strong Back. Or if you are about to do many talking or manipulating, you have to tag in Delusion. Please set to your current circumstances.
- Make use of Console.
