Abilities (Skills) in the Witcher 3 can be gained and upgraded by gaining experience. The game has four talent trees from which you can choose – combat, signs, alchemy, and general. Choose wisely in which talent tree you want to spend your skill points: you will not be able to max them all out so assign points in accordance with your play style.

The various upgrades are arranged into 4 branches, each of which can be unlocked by spending a certain amount of points. To unlock the second branch of upgrades you need to spend 8 points in the first branch. Unlocking the third branch will cost you 20 points in the second, and to gain access to the fourth branch you will have to spend 30 points in the branch above it. Geralt’s skills can also be boosted with special items called mutagens.

This guide will show you all the Witcher 3 skills you can choose from, along with their effects and the mutagens that suit them.
