Important: The following guide is intended for mature audiences only, due to its content.

Preparation of this guide cost us a lot of work - The Witcher - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Preparation of this guide cost us a lot of work. Thus we'd like to confirm the fact that both witcher's swords are for monsters - with the steel one being intended for those in human flesh. For example the ones that like to point out a strategy guide's flaws and state that it sucks as a result of some minor omissions. Now that we have that clear, please enjoy the adventures of Geralt of Rivia.

The blade of destiny has two edges - You are one of them.

The Witcher represents the pinnacle of storytelling in role-playing games, shattering the line between good and evil with a world where moral ambiguity reigns. In a beautiful, rich game universe created by artists first, technology second, the player becomes his own hero in an epic, action-packed narrative uniquely defined by his actions. Returning to the roots of the role-playing genre with a fresh and modern approach, The Witcher emphasizes story and character development in a vibrant world, while incorporating tactically-deep real-time combat like no game before it.

Immersed in a vivid but harsh fantasy world, the player assumes the role of a white-haired witcher named Geralt, a renowned monster-slayer-for-hire and master swordsman with superhuman strength and reflexes. While trying to regain his lost memory, Geralt unwillingly becomes involved in a world-shaking power struggle. Created to provide entertainment for both fans of role-playing games and those seeking fast-paced action, The Witcher brings together epic storytelling and dynamic, visually stunning, and tactically deep action.

- Geralt of Rivia: a one-of-a-kind protagonist
- A charismatic and unique character, Geralt is a mutant swordmaster and professional monster slayer.
- Choose from over 250 special abilities correlated to attributes, combat skills and magical powers to build the character in a way best suited to tactical needs and style of play.
- Inspired by the writings of renowned Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
- Featuring adult themes, less fairy-tale than typical fantasy, with mature social issues like racism, political intrigue and genocide.
- It is a harsh world where nothing is black or white, right or wrong, often forcing players to choose between the lesser of two evils to advance.
- Full of turns, twists and ambiguous moral decisions which have real impact on the storyline.
- All quests can be accomplished in several ways and the game has three different endings depending on the player’s actions and choices throughout the adventure.
- Engage in complex yet intuitive real-time combat based on real medieval sword-fighting techniques.
- Motion capture performed by medieval fighting experts at Frankfurt’s renowned Metric Minds studio, resulting in 600 spectacular and authentic in-game combat animations.
- Six combat styles, dozens of potions, complex alchemy system, modifiable weapons and powerful magic add tactical depth to the fluid real-time experience.

Could'nt have done it without this guide back when the game came out. Game Pressure is the BEST :)

Hello, I'm in chapter 3 and i need to gather the psilocybe mushrooms, it doesn't appear on a book, and it says that you dont have to have any special knowledge to gather them. i know there are in the cave in the swamp but i cant gather them... any help please!!!!

aleksira 26/04/2010 12:39

you now you have to read 2 books right

I was doing the Anatomy of the crime quest(the one where you inspect that body in the hospital with Shani),did the autopsy,and decided Kalkstein was guilty.Then I accidentally found this page while surfing the net and realised I was being made a fool of.So I want to do the autopsy again and make the right decision this time.Sounds easy:Use a previous save and redo it.That's what I did,but the game remembered my answers and keeps implicating Kalkstein by itself when Shani finds the cut out tongue,and then Geralt goes on blaming Kalkstein without the game asking me what to say,so I can't implicate Azar Javed.I found the fisstech on Raymond's table,and I (Geralt) knows he should be careful with him,but that's as far as it goes.So I'd be happy if someone could tell me how I can get different autopsy results(basically get the game to forget what I answered last time)

Yes, as soon as you progress enough to do so, tough battles ahead and you have to be prepared.

Solarphunk 26/09/2009 02:22

Thank you Mongo 1 but don't I need to tackle the crypts to get into the city, progress further in the story and finally get my blasted silver sword? Guess I could revert to the guide huh?

Mongo1 25/09/2009 21:04

If you haven't found them or how to make them yet, you are too green to go into the crypts. Soon enough as you progress these things will come to you and then you might be able to survive the battles there. Have fun, been a long time since I played it but yes it was a lot of fun. Just a lot of options and you have to be consistent. and which way you choose determines the story.

Solarphunk 25/09/2009 03:22

....yea if you couldn't tell its my first time posting ^ SEE!!!

Solarphunk 25/09/2009 03:21

Solarphunk 25/09/2009 03:18

1.3 Patch is now available for download, along with the adventure editor. The patch includes a new adventure, and now you can create your own and compete to get it published. For those that do not yet own the game, a new commercial package with the updates is now available.

Hello I hope someone might have some insight on this situation. I am in the middle of the quest Salamandra Territory and I am told to go to the sewers meet someone in a specific place, then someone will come in with a ladder and prop it up to a window which allows the Whicher to get into the restricted areas. The snap is that I meet the guards at the meeting point but no one brings a ladder, I checked to see if I might have not completed a specific quest or what but can't find the snag. Could it be my character is not high enough lvl?? Thanks for any help offered Ken
