are special items in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, genetic material obtained by killing monsters. They can either be used to improve you character through:
- Scaling with active skills; or
- Being the main ingredient in mutagen decoctions.
In this guide, we’re going to list all Witcher 3 mutagens
, where to find them and what bonuses you’ll get for equipping them.
If you equip a mutagen, it will give you a bonus to one of your attributes.
If you then pair the mutagen with up to three active skills of the same color, it will multiply the bonus. Every skill you pair with the mutagen will increase its efficiency by 100%
For example, if your is green and gives you 150 Vitality, you can pair it with an alchemy skill, after which it will give you 300 Vitality. If you pair it with three alchemy skills, it will grant you an amazing 600 additional Vitality.
Are Mutagens Permanent?
No. You can switch them at will in order to adapt to the situation at hand. If you develop your character in such a way that you can jump between playing styles when need be, you should keep a couple of different mutagens handy, too. The same goes for mutagens of the same color, but with different effects. Carry a few of them with you so you can always shake things up.
