Damage

Generally speaking, damage is the amount of hit points deducted from a target by an object or an NPC. Mostly we are concerned with damage inflicted by objects wielded by the player character (Geralt), but of equal consideration is the damage received from objects wielded by his opponents. This damage amount can range from 0 to the amount of vitality a target has remaining in the game.

The player, or Geralt, can inflict damage by the using weapons such as a steel sword, a silver sword, signs or miscellaneous other weapons he finds, and even his fists.

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt[edit | edit source]

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt the damage is separated into two categories:

  • DPS - Silver Sword DPS - Silver Sword, for the damage inflicted, per second, with a silver sword
  • DPS - Steel Sword DPS - Steel Sword, for the damage inflicted, per second, with a steel weapon

For a detailed discussion of how damage is calculated, see The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt forum.

Damage

Weapon damage varies with character attributes in The Witcher 2, so the damage inflicted with any given weapon may not be the same for every player.

Stacking of Damage[edit | edit source]

Damage in The Witcher stacks by multiplication. This is best explained with the use of examples.

Case 1:

  • Geralt wields a steel sword which boasts +50% damage.
  • He then applies a whetstone (+10% damage) to it.
  • The amount of damage he will do then is:
(base damage) × 1.5 (Weapon damage bonus) × 1.1 (whetstone) = (base damage) × 1.65

Case 2:

  • Geralt wields a steel sword which boasts +50% damage.
  • He then applies necrophage oil (+100% damage vs necrophages) to it.
  • The amount of damage he will do against necrophages then is:
(base damage) × 1.5 (Weapon damage bonus) × 2 (necrophage oil) = (base damage) × 3
