maybe its quite stupid question but what class/build would be closest to Witcher from Sapkowski books (or game if someone is not familiiar wirh books) ?

Im interested in playtrough with simmilar character but i have no idea what would be closest one. Is there even possibility to create such character?


What could be best weapon for such character.

Every class can wield swords, estocs and great swords - so it all comes down to the Witcher's magic that you'd want to emulate. So maybe a wizard. Or a fighter with a lot of spellbinding items and scroll usage. Rogue would also be possible, but maybe a bit squishy. I could also see a chanter as witcher. They have some effects via invocations and phrases that match with the witcher's stuff.


I would use great swords or estocs. there some really nice unique ones in the game.

First of all there are two swords.

I'd say Blade of the Endless Paths vs enemies with medium-low DR, and Tidefall vs enemies with high DR. The character could switch them like witchers do.


Second, there are signs: Aard, Igni, Yrden, Quen and Axii.

Aard - basic sign is similar to Mind Wave; while sweep upgrade is somewhat similar to Amplified Wave.

Igni - fan of flames plus ray of fire, and to a lesser degree soul ignition.

Yrden - this one is hard, maybe Time Siphon for mass slow

Quen - there are no phys damage preventing shielding spells. Perhaps Spirit Shield , Llengrath's Displaced Image, Ironskin and Psychovampiric Shield? Or maybe Unbending + Triggered Immunity?

Axii - Whispers of Treason / Tenuous Grasp / Enigma's Charm


I would go for:

- wizard or cipher, if you want to play like a witcher of Griffin school.

- cipher or fighter for Wolf School

- fighter for Ursine School

- and rogue for Cat/Viper School feel

MaxQuest - a witcher from the books, not the games. ;)


I still think a chanter would be nice.

Aard: could be the lvl 1 invocation that stuns and pushes.

Igni: obviously The Dragon Thrashed.

Yrden: everybody with mechanics can place traps. The chanter can also have drop traps. Or the Killers froze stiff.

Quen: the -10% damage chant & the 30pt damage shield chant

Axii: there's an invocation for that.


Most of the invocations are cone shaped.


Best thing is: you can name your chants accordingly.

It was born as joke sometimes ago,but... :yes:




Geralt, Cypher with two 2handed swords - one kith slayer, second wilder slayer. I don't remember stats, but those were according to melee cypher (might, per, dex at least 15)

And lore 4 for scroll Fan of Flames and Ray of Fire, which serve as Igni substitution.

It was a lot of fun RPing Geralt with his party.

Zoltan was a tank fighter
Ciri was a rogue with Escape and Shadow Beyond (It fits perfectly with her combat style from Witcher 3 game)
Triss - priest, that's all)

Dandelion - of course, chanter

And Yennefer as damaging wizard
