Would be dumb if you lose out on an earlier quest because you were too high level. They deal with it pretty well, by reducing the amount of XP you get at higher level since the challenge becomes non-existent.

By the way LTTP but I am playing through Hearts of Stone right now. I remember people saying this was the worse of the two expansions. Well I'm wondering how awesome Blood and Wine must be because Hearts of Stone has been great so far!

Yeah, people need to use different descriptions...unless they actually thought it was BAD.

Sure, one is probably better than the other. That doesn't mean the other one is bad though. What should be said is, "Blood and Wine is the best of the two", and leave it at that. No more implications that Hearts of Stone is a poor expansion.

Hearts of Stone was better than a lot of complete games...

Its laughable, like 1 XP for completing the quest. Make sure you try to do all quests that are around your recommended level before moving on or you will forfeit those experience points.

Basically, just don't ignore any quests you started and keep leveling up from the main quests. Because when you go back to them you wont get much XP from them. I think because of this design, the game encourages you to be doing secondary quests along side the main quests that are of matching recommended levels.

Personally this runs contrary to how I prefer playing my RPGs. I tend to like doing all the main quests stuff first to keep the sense of urgency relevant, and return to the secondary quests later. But it is what it is in this game.

Well ****, this is good to learn. I was noticing exp was sometimes really low but didn't pay attention to what level the quest was.

Frack.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Good to know about the DLCs. I'm looking forward to playing through that part of the story.

Oh by no means was I under the assumption it was bad. Just that since I'm enjoying it so much I'm wondering how good Blood and Wine must be since its regarded as being better (and bigger).

Its quite nice to know I've still got good Witchering to look forward to for a good while to come.

There are a couple related to the main story line (One specifically regarding Radovid) that if you don't do by a certain point in the main quest with Ciri, you'll fail that quest. At one point you get a warning that certain options won't be available if you proceed past that point. I just replayed the main story line since watching the Netflix show because it was several years since I played the game. It's still one of my all time favorite games ever and I'm not a hardcore RPG guy.

There is a mod you can do to give all relevant XP regardless of your level. I use it so I can go back to them later and still get full XP.


Blood and Wine is better than Hearts of Stone in my opinion. A whole new land to explore and another great story. Hearts of stone was good though.
