On this page of the guide to The Witcher Monster Slayer you will learn how to fight to earn as many experience points as possible.
You will receive 100XP for each enemy you defeat, but this number can be increased through the methods listed below.
- New opponents
- Critical hits
- Perfect parrying
- Complete missions
- Fight legendary monsters
- Choose the right oils
- Fight effectively and quickly
- Clearing the Nemetons
- Buy the best armor and sword
- Use the scrolls
- Regularly clear the area around your house from monsters
There are many opponents in the game. They are divided into different types and classes. Some opponents only come out at night, others on rainy days, and still others far away from human settlements.
Each new monster earns you an additional 100 experience points.
The critical hit is a powerful strike that needs to be charged. The recharge speed depends on how well you do in battle. The more you hit your enemy, the faster the critical hit will recharge.
A perfect critical hit earns you an additional 15 experience points.
You can parry by placing your finger on the screen. Don't move it, don't spin it, just keep it pressed in one place. This will make your character raise their sword and protect themselves from being hit.
A perfect parry earns you an additional 15 experience points.
As in any game, you get the most experience points by completing missions. Thanks to them you can get immersed into the story, gain a lot of experience points, gold, as well as potions, oils, bombs, or alchemy stations.
Fight legendary monsters
You will get 100 experience points for each regular monster you defeat. However, if you manage to track down rare and legendary creatures, the amount of points increases significantly.
You will receive 250 points for a rare monster and 600 points for a legendary monster.
If you are looking for legendary monsters, you should stock up on potions and scrolls. Information on items that can help you in exploration can be found on Potions and Scrolls - which works on the map? page.
Choose the right oils
If you match the right oil to the opponent you will receive extra points. It is not a difficult thing to do. You just have to check the type of the monster.
More information on Monster types - how do you identify them? There, you will learn how to find the types. Once you have the right information, all that remains is to select the right oil. You can find a list of them on the page - Oils.
Fight effectively and quickly
After choosing the right oils, potions, and a good sword, you will be able to defeat your opponent faster. This will give you a time bonus. However, in order to get those points, you really have to do your best.
To learn how to prepare for a fight, check out the Combat - battle preparations page.
Clearing the Nemetons
Nemetons can be unlocked at level 10. They are visible on the map but they cannot be attacked. To clear a Nemeton, you will have to fight three opponents. Two at a lower difficulty (e.g. low or medium) and a boss on hard or medium level. You will receive 50 gold coins and over 500 experience points for clearing the ghostly tree.
The problem lies in the fact that you must defeat all three opponents in one go. You cannot change weapons, potions or oils. You also cannot restore your life bar.
Buy the best armor and sword
In the store, you can find two items that increase the bonus to experience points. These are:
- A'Baeth - increases experience points by 25% (steel sword);
- Kaer Morhen Armor - increases experience points by 25% (armor).
Each of these items costs 12000 gold coins. To learn how to get gold, check out the Coins - how to get? page.
Use the scrolls
The reinforcement scrolls can be purchased for a few dozen or a few hundred coins. They can only be obtained from the store. However, if you want to develop your character, get 3 of them. They're definitely worth buying if you're going for a long walk where you're sure you'll have a moment to play.
- Summoning Scroll - summons 5 random monsters (4 common and 1 rare);
- Range Scroll - increases the interaction area on the map (duration 30 min);
- Experience Scroll - increases the number of received experience points by 100% (duration 30 min).
Regularly clear the area around your house from monsters
Monsters appear near the hero every 20/30 minutes. They have different levels of difficulty, plus they depend on the weather outside. You may encounter legendary monsters without leaving home. However, it is important to log in regularly to see what is going on in the game. You can easily gain a lot of experience points simply by killing whatever comes near you.
