Mutations give witchers special powers. They also turn them ugly.

The Alchemy Tree lets players improve Geralt’s alchemical skills. It is categorized into five branches.

The Brewing branch deals with potions – items that Geralt can imbibe to acquire a variety of buffs, such as one that accelerates the regeneration of Stamina, and another that deals damage to certain creatures when they attack him. The problem with potions is that they’re poisonous – drink too much, and Geralt can become ill. And you don’t want a sickly witcher hunting monsters. Thankfully, skills exist to raise his tolerance to potion toxicity.

Oil Preparation concerns oils. When applied to weapons, specific oils can cause them to do additional damage to certain monsters.

Bomb Creation governs the special attributes of bombs. As mentioned earlier, these are projectile weapons that cause various effects, such as blocking the magical abilities of opponents, and blinding them.

Mutation deals with mutagens. These are highly poisonous substances extracted from monsters’ corpses that, when used by Geralt, gifts him new abilities. Certain skills improve Geralt’s tolerance to mutagens as well as prolong their effects.

Trial of the Grasses enhances Geralt’s resistance to extremely toxic potions.

General Skills

Finally we have the General Skill Tree. This enables Geralt to raise miscellaneous attributes such as his Vitality, Toxicity threshold, crossbow damage, and armor effectiveness.

Witcher 3 is one of my favorite games. It inspired me to pick up the novels. As an author, I'm very glad it did.
