  • Changes to some quest levels to better reflect changes form this mod. See “Quest Level Changes” heading for details.
  • Redesigned alchemy skill “Poisoned Blades”. Now lowers enemy resistances to bleeding, burning and poison with each hit. See skill section for more details.
  • Redesigned alchemy skill “Tissue Transmutation”. Mutagens now provide extra secondary bonuses based on color. See skill section for more details.
  • Battle Frenzy general skill critical hit chance buffed from 8% to 12% per Adrenaline Point.
  • Modified description of alchemy skill “Synergy” to mention that it doesn’t affect secondary bonuses from “Tissue Transmutation”.

The remaining changes introduced by The Witcher 3 Redux 2.8 include a tweak for supercharged glyphs, increased shock-based damage boost while raining and enhanced visual effects for Quen during storms.

  • Supercharged Glyphs Tweak – Geralt’s Yrden Sign Intensity will be used for some sign effect calculations if it is higher than the Sign Intensity of the sign being supercharged.
  • If it is raining or storming, shock-based sign damage boosts (so Magic Trap and Quen Discharge) are increased.
  • During storms, the quen shield is stronger and can take more damage. Affects both the basic and alternate version.
  • Enhanced the visual effect of the quen sign during storms.
  • Fixed rare bug where Flood of Anger could make Geralt move at 2x speed.
