New Skills in Witcher 3 Blood and Wine

There are very few new skills in Blood & Wine. The main three skill trees – magic, alchemy and sword fighting – haven’t had any additions. The only new abilities are located in the General tree. That’s not to say they’re not useful – they just aren’t numerous, either. This guide will show you all of the new skills in Witcher 3 Blood and Wine and what they do.

Blood and Wine New Abilities

Five abilities were added in the DLC and they’re all in the General tab. This means they don’t have a synergy with mutagens, which is why you should be careful when choosing which ones to activate.

GORGED ON POWER – The bonus from a Place of Power lasts indefinitely but only one such bonus can be active at a given time.
GOURMET – Eating food regenerates Vitality for 20 minutes.
IN COMBAT’S FIRES – You ignore bomb and special bolt effects.
HEAVY ARTILLERY – Bomb damage is increased by 200% but the number of bombs in slots is decreased by 50%. This does not apply to bombs which deal no damage.
ATTACK IS THE BEST DEFENSE – Each defensive action generates Adrenaline Points: Parries 0.1 points, Counterattacks 0.4 points, Dodges 0.3 points, Rolls 0.2 points. Cannot be activated more than once every 5 seconds.

    What I’ve managed to find is that the new ones don’t need to be equipped to take effect. Yet.
