Errors & Problems in Blood and Wine Patch 1.21 | Witcher 3

Blood and Wine is the most recent DLC for The Witcher 3. It’s quite a large add-on, with new areas, enemies, items and even mechanics.
▼Article Continues Below▼
All of this being added to the already rich game was bound to result in a few hiccups here and there. Some are just that – hiccups – while others are more troublesome, serious problems. Thankfully, most can be fixed by easy workarounds, while only some require the developer’s attention. This guide will show you a list of known errors & problems in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine, how to solve or avoid them.

If you need help with finding a piece of armor, or finishing a quest, or something else entirely, take a look at our Witcher 3 Blood and Wine Walkthrough & Guides.

Update: A large number of these has been fixed by patch 1.22. Check out the patch 1.22 changelog for a detailed list of fixes.

Can’t interact with NPCs – patch 1.22 on Playstation 4

Some people are reporting not being able to interact with NPCs and quest items in the latest version of the game on PS4. The developers are aware of the problem and are working to fix it. Make sure you keep your old save files from before the update around, in case of corruption. Apart from that, there’s nothing to be done.

Stuck at level – XP bug

A lot of players reported that they have been stuck at 2000/2000 XP. Taking a potion of clearance fixes the bug. If Potion of clearance cannot be equipped or used, try using it from the inventory – put your cursor over it and press E.

Issues with armor textures

Check your settings, textures are auto-moved from High to Low.

Crashes seem to occur while being in inventory Screen

We don’t have any solution for this bug at the moment.

All Gwent cards have been wiped

This bug usually appears if you have previously installed any Gwent card mod.

All the Witcher swords (Cat, Griffin, and Bear schools) are gone, including the diagrams for crafting them.

We don’t have any solution for this bug at the moment.

Games does not start after 1.20 update

You’ll have this bug if you have installed any mod. Remove all your mods, remove the “dsound.dll” and the “plugins” folder at “xxx\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\bin\x64”.
