The Witcher 3 saga officially comes to a close tomorrow with the release of the final DLC expansion, Blood and Wine. Developer CD Projekt Red has pulled out all the stops for Geralt of Rivia’s last adventure in The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine expansion, adding a plethora of new features and enhancements. Before you head off on your journey through Toussaint, we’ve prepared some last-minute tips to get you up to speed.
It would be a massive bummer if you bought Blood and Wine only to discover you’re underleveled for the new content. CD Projekt recommends that players be at level 35 before attempting the first Blood and Wine quest, so make sure you plan accordingly. Like the previous expansion Hearts of Stone, the level requirement will scale with new game plus.
Of course, if you want to experience The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine immediately, you can just jump in with a premade level 35 character.
Grandmaster Witcher Gear
Before firing up Blood and Wine, it would also be good if you collect, craft, and upgrade the witcher armor set that best suits your playstyle. That way, you can you start working toward upgrading your gear to the Grandmaster level, a new tier being introduced in Blood and Wine. Previous reports say that Grandmaster upgrades will be tied to certain quests, so be on the look out.
If you’re still playing through the base game, it might be wise to stockpile some ability points to spend on The Witcher Blood and Wine’s new mutations. The expansion is bringing 12 new ones to choose from, so saving points now will allow you to access them quicker. For more news and updates on The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine, keep it here on the Bitbag.
