I'm finally gonna play Witcher 3 now.
Anyone using sweetFX presets even after the updates?
If so which one do you prefer??
Or is it better without using one???

Have anyone experienced this sort of bug? Know a fix?

When attacking enemies there is no sound. I mean when slashes actually hit and hurt the enemy.
Maybe the slash sound for the first and the killing blow is there but if you do a combo then no slashing sound at all.
Got all the patches and updates installed & no mods installed.
Playing in the death march difficulty and the bug appeared after doing some main quests in novigrad I think. (Finding Dandelion sort of things)..
Searched in several forums and found no fix

Yeah. I've been playing for 4 days straight now  ;D so addicted
It seems sound goes when the opponent gets stunned or frozen. And I read somewhere fast travelling too much is another reason for this. Anyway doesn't happen often.
If usually appears after playing for long hours. So I just exit the game and run again.

Another thing... Only happens against low level opponents I think. Cause they gets stunned very easily and you could swing your sword like nothing without even taking a breath.

Playing the hearts of stone expansion now.

Now fighting the toughest boss I've met in the entire game. Playing on Death March.
Iris's greatest fear - Olgierd vo Everec's wraiths

Got my highest death count in a single fight (four) which is only second to fighting those ghouls with vesemier in the beginning.

This boss fight is badass! Wish every boss & witcher conracts were a bit hard as this.
But the enemies in the expansion are a bit smarter & tougher than the rest.But those archonoids are really annoying.
Ng+ in death march is what's to play if you're looking for a real challenge  (Y)
Saw some videos.. 2 strokes from even a bear in the beginning of the game.. and you're dead  :)
But no doubt this "greatest fear" is the most challenging boss fight so far for me.
Anyone who didn't play the expansion,. really ought to try it. Really good.

lol, u can kill 5 stupid stray dogs in one blast of ingi (once its a bit upgraded i think and i  think there is a achievement for killing 5 enemies within a time limit or in one combat.
i got a fight with about 10-15 (armed) guys in some underground thing where it even has a hidden door to some treasure. its part of the main story in Novigrade but i guess there are multiple ways to go about it. then there was a prisoner i rescued where the enemies was skull marked pro solders but.... i was in hoarse back so each stike is like 200% multiplied. so yes all dead within about 2-3 mins.
the thing is with game+ you know what to do with each enemy/situation and so it 50% won before each battle start. and by that time your are combat pro due to the 100+ hours in the game (first run).
got the expansion and downloading it these days. ready to kick ass with a level 38 Geralt on Death march.

even if you start a new game you know what is there. NG+ is sort of a next level.

After about 150 hours finished almost everything (all the main quests, contracts, secondary quests & a lot of treasure hunts) except for some 90 undiscovered locations in skellige. A lot of them are stupid smugglers caches in water...
Gonna finish that now..
Even after the game is finished still can't stop playing and spending hours wandering playing gwent and making the last of the recipies.......  :)
The best game ever!!

I tried an overall build mainly focusing on Alchemy. Gonna do an entire alchemy build on NG+ and maybe then an entire combat build

Oh, the best gwent playing merchant (random ones that you can play always) is the merchant @ novigrad near the St.Gregory Bridge.
Even eith the full set of gwent cards including expansion cards, I still loose to the bugger. Never was able to beat him without loosing a hand.
once I hand a hand of 227 points and still the bugger beat me on that hand and won the game!

Using the Mastercrafted ursine and wolven sets. Those are the best looking ones to me.

Man this game sets the bar really high. I mean REALLY high.
After the main game, I was playing MGS 5, Fallout 4 and GTA 5, and revisited the game to play hearts of stone, and then (again) I realized how good this game is.

Level 35 Geralt with mastercrafted griffin armour.

I still discover new things even after finishing almost everything.  ;D For an instance yesterday I was searching for some smugglers loot in Skellige and discovered that the sirens and Eridnas damage the boats!! They just come towards you hold on to a plank and tear a piece apart!!! Never encountered that before
Finally found all the oil diagrams and finished brewing all the oils, potions and decoctions except for the Doppler, Troll, & Succubus Decoctions since I didn't kill those in my gameplay except for an occasional troll which attacks you(but didn't drop a mutagen) and I need their mutagens to brew those decoctions..

Playing an alchemy build is a lot of fun  ;D Specially when taking 3 decoctions & a couple of potions at once..

Another favourite part of the game was those fist fights with the bear & the troll. Lol!

how is this patch change gwent?.

Nothing serious. And doesn't affect gameplay.
The first gwent game I played after using the patch, no gwent music was there. But one of the background sounds were present. It made playying not much fun. But this was at Skellige so I went to Novigrad and played a hand there but then gwent music was there (same as before the patch).
And the results sheet with points after finishing a game is now greyish and not beautiful.
I also read somewhere that the loading screen between the hands is also not present.

And they've reinvented what bombs should look like apparently. With somewhat assassin's creed relevations typish..
Not the usual pictures for bombs
And I tried to do the the fool's gold dlc quest but it was glitched from the beginning. Couldn't kill the bandits and continue cause they won't die..Didn't try this quest before the patch. So not sure where the patch caused the glitch or not.

I don't like how the bombs look now  >:( But they are much more recognisable from each other that it was before.
