The Witcher 3 Redux 3.3 Increases Damage Resistance of all Toussaint Human Enemies Alongside Other Tweaks

“The mod brings in new magic items that modify/replace signs abilities when equipped in quick and/or trophy slots (except for the The Sword Ring)”, ‘Menschfeind13’ writes. “They can be bought from ofieri and novigradian merchants, or just use the console command: witchermage.”

According to the modder, almost every spell aspect scales with Geralt’s level to make them better balanced. We’ve included the list of features/changes that the mod offers down below alongside some screenshots:

The Witcher 3 Magic Spells Mod key features

SPELL ITEMS:

Magical Doll - gives you massive bonus of additional spellpower to all signs.

Tome of Carrying - casts through the standard Quen sign, increases Geralt's encumberance and underwater swimming speed and air.

Manuscript of Clear Horizon - casts through the standard Quen sign, makes Geralt invisible for a short time. Gives instant kill chance, increases chance and damage of critical hits, attack and spell powers when attacking monsters while you're invisible. Upon attacking with a sword or a sign you'll loose invisibility. Scales with your Quen sign intensity.
NOTE: If you try to attack a human npc, Geralt won't do that (it's prewritten game behavior), and npcs will become hostile, but your invisibility buffs will remain, so just quickly attack or use sign again. This is the only workaround I could find so far.
Cannot be cast during fights, the standard quen shield will be applied instead.

Tome of Shelter - replaces the standard Yrden sign and upon placing a circle makes enemies around indifferent towards Geralt for a short time.

Tome of Meteora - replaces the alternate Axii sign and upon casting summons fire meteors to the target location. Number of meteors, damage and decreasing of damage you receive scale with Axii sign.
