THE WITCHER 2: ASSASSINS OF KINGS ENHANCED EDITION
1.5 Witcher’s Tricks
A witcher is both swordsman and mage, but doesn’t rely on those skills exclusively. Witchers were bred to fight monsters, who are ruthless and inhumanly powerful foes. To compensate, witchers are taught to fight dirty and take advantage of every possible edge they can find in a fight. This philosophy is expressed in gameplay through witcher’s tricks, items you can equip in Geralt’s pockets and unleash against opponents in battle.
Items equipped to Geralt’s pocket slots are always consumables you must find, craft, or purchase before you can use them. You have a limited supply of each trick item and may eventually run out. Most witcher’s tricks are situational items that tend to be either overwhelmingly powerful or somewhat useless, depending on how well they fit the situation. A skillful player is one who knows exactly when to deploy a particular witcher’s trick.
