Why do the armors in this game look so good, fuck.
about 5% do
the rest look like utter trash
Temerian and Wolf School armors are amazing, though. Wish there were more like them. They actually look like improvements on the god-tier jacket-style armors from Witcher 2. Cat school is also good.
Ursine is nice but it's a little too trenchcoat for me
Ursine was fucking amazing until the final evolution. It looked so comfy. Like I would wear that shit around Skellige because it was cold and it mixed with the environment well. But then they took all the padding and replaced it with rusty chains.
>post yfw Blood and Wine introduces Grandmaster crafted Witcher sets.
Why are westerncucks so retarded when it comes to design a fucking armour? It's our fucking culture how can a nip have a better concept about it
Also, Geralt looks like a fucking thief with only leather
Does anyone dislike the leveling system in Wticher 3? I'm not saying it's terrible but it feels pretty frustrating that I invest points into a skill that I can't use because I'm out of slots/can't unlock the next one yet. Or I have to give up a old skill that I like for it.
The only good armor in Witcher 3 were the Nilfgaard armors.
Why do witchers only button the top of their jackets?
Still has nothing on Witcher 2 armors.
I wish they kept Witcher 2's art style because it was godly. Heard there was a lot of turmoil in the studio during Witcher 3's development which led to a lack of clearly defined art direction.
>mfw getting the nilfgaard horse armor and the nilfgaard saddlebags
Shit looks like something out of a fashion magazine. But I like it.
>put on a jacket
>button/zip it up all the way
>try to fight
>Geralt looks like a fucking thief with only leather
That's because he hunts monster that crush armor like paper. If anything, real armor would weigh him down. Pretty sure the only armored suits in the game are a courtesy of the devs to the more casual userbase rather than something meant to be lore-friendly.
He needs to move and strike fast with precision, not tank blows and overpower the target.
This. Witcher 1 had the most lore-friendly armors.
A better question would be how the fuck does the Chosen Undead roll in that armor? Has anyone from FROM ever worn metal armor? Do they not have any concept of how HEAVY it is? You're going to roll and land flat on your back for lack of momentum.
If anything, the Chosen Undead should be dressed more like Geralt, not the other way around.
>expected the Nilgaar Empire to be the evil cockwad faction
>turns out King Ratfag is even worse
Surprised I ended up siding with the Nilfgaar, but good on CD for not making a mary sue good guy faction.
Yes. Because it focused on the things that actually mattered. Who wants to spend hours crafting weapons/armor when they will simply be obsolete 20 minutes later? Witcher 1 had you craft ONE set of good armor that lasted you the entire game.
>Witcher 1 had you craft ONE set of good armor that lasted you the entire game.
When was the last time you played? You only had Raven's armor for the final chapter, and the other armor you had to spend 5000 orens for
Radovid went crazy out of nowhere. Witcher 1 had him as the "clever opportunist" king and Witcher 2 had him as an "alpha male" king but he was still smart and reasonable. Witcher 3 turned him into Caligula out of fucking nowhere
But those made sense. Why would Geralt or any Witcher want to use protection or armor against monster than can break that shit like it was paper tissue.
The armors in the game make sense even Geralt says as much when he talks with the mastercrafter dwarf in Velen about how he needs a light, strong armor.
I've wondered this too. I think it's just a fashion thing. Too many female designers calling the shots.
The Chosen Undead is a fucking superhuman demi-god
...which he does by dodging and rolling around them and striking when prudent, much like Geralt. Armor like the stuff CU wears is meant to tank blows from handheld weaponry, not dragons and pseudo-lovecraftian horrors.
I haven't played TW3, do the armors have differences that would make sense to switch between them for different circumstances? I like a lot of them and don't want to stick to just one, but it'd be nice to have a reason to do so other than fashion.
Attention to detail
Its what makes TW3 a gem
Its what is missing from 90% of AAA titles.
>its a fantasy armor some spikes, belts and everything black and its all cool
or since souls game were a success
> metal armor in weird shapes, maby spikes and its cool
No but you will outlevel your armors very quickly. The only armor that levels with you is one of the Witcher school sets which you can upgrade multiple times. Other than that, most armors are really interchangeable and you'll burn through them quickly.
Retards think just because plate armor was made in medieval times it has no rhyme or reason to it, not realizing master smiths have spent decades designing and tweaking armors to keep movement as unhindered as possible. But try to explain that to summerfags because OMG its metal they couldn't possible move faster than walking speed in it durrr....
Not complete without the weird shit over your face.
You usually stick to one based on your stat investment. The game features evolving armor sets.
Basically you get some witcher style armor through treasure hunting and you later find Upgraded versions of the gear later. It requires lots of exploration but is pretty fun.
The armor sets also don't go 'WoW' on you. Even the most ornate isn't anymore ceremonial in appearance than Maximillian Plate.
viper armor is pretty baller, too bad you get it so late
Viper armor was literally created as a reskin of the default armor for all the faggots who complained how weak the original armor was.
the lore friendly witcher mod that gives geralt paler skin and glowing cat eyes is a must desu. think it makes his eyebrows white and his eyesockets less dark too.
Medieval armors were designed to not hinder running and sword technique, not jumprolls (probably because the concept of rolling in a fight is kind of retarded). Rolling requires you to redistribute your weight and articulate your back in relation to your buttocks to facilitate the movement and continue momentum, which armor makes difficult due to both the weight and the fact that making armor that articulates with your torso effectively is overly complicated and would do more to compromise the protection it provides in the first place.
It doesn't matter if your a knight or fucking Guts, if your armor isn't specifically designed to facilitate that impractical level of movement, you're not going to be rolling anytime soon.
Notice the dudes in >>324173254 are also wearing full plate armor where as the Elite Knight or regular Knight are not fully armored.
That and to be fair, an SL5 Knight with straight sword and a kite shield is fatrolling fuck.
I used to think that and it was a big issue with the game but then I remembered the Lodge orchestrated a regicide at the end of 2 so like... it kinda makes sense? Still kinda disappointing
Dunno what outcome you had in W2, but the mage hunt ending of W2 set up things to come pretty vividly. You later get to see how far off the hook he has become by the time you meet him in W3. It was pretty clear in the W2 end, that he wasn't a "my way or the highway" kinda personality like Emhir. Even before the end, when he scooped out the eyes of Philippa, you knew the dude had issues. I went into W3 with a pretty clear idea, that I'd fuck him over if I got the chance.
>Dragon Age 2 armor
I just remembered about the Dead Space armor in that game.
Yeah but what really kills me is how he betrays you at the end for no reason. Granted, you are leading him into a trap but he doesn't know that. He orders you killed because he doesn't like your attitude. You, who help him in all three games are suddenly put to death on a whim.
It's been a few years since I read it so I might not remember everything correctly, but generally half of saga's plot is about everyone trying to kidnap Ciri to either rape her because her child is supposed to be a fortold world's savior and almighty wizard or use her for political goals because she is heir to Cintra's throne. Or both. And also she is like ten years old or something like that then, basically a child, not a sexy teenager we know from the game.
This mod makes him look more like his CGI version.
I don't have an opinion on how that went down, as I haven't finished that part yet, so I'll have to take your word on the sudden betrayal, though the way I see him, Geralt was on his kill list by definition, being as much of a non-human magic wielder as any other who ended up on a stake during the game. His speech about kings being on a whole other level than the rest and Roche's insight about how Radovid isn't all that loyal an ally, showed to me that he considers Geralt a mere tool, who'll be discarded once his usefulness to Radovid The Paranoid has run out. Not to forget how he fucked over Kaedvin, which also strengthens Roche's reasoning.
All in all, I wasn't all that surprised that Radovid turned out to go bonkers over time.
You can't get everyone in Kaer Moren unless you romance her. Also, the djin spell should by all accounts break your love for Yennefer.
The entire plot leads up to you finally saying goodbye to the people you love, including Ciri. It thematically fits if you finally part ways with Yen.
The armour is layered and isn't just a single mesh with textures to give the illusion of being layered. It's why Dark Souls and Witcher have good looking armour whilst Skyrim has ugly looking armour (e.g. the fur and steel plates in the steel plate set are part of the same mesh whilst the fur should be above the plates).
It's not even that. Dijkstra's plan is to betray and kill two hardened veteran soldiers and at least one other person (maybe more, I forget) who probably has military training, with like four hired goons and himself, a spy with a bum leg. Even if it wasn't already a terrible idea, he assumes that the witcher, who is ALREADY complicit in a regicide plot not because it's witcher's work but because it's the right thing to do, will just walk away and let his friends die because hey, witchers are neutral and don't get involved in politics.
It bothers me more than Radovid catching the idiot ball because Dijkstra is a very intelligent guy who just makes a stupid plan for no reason.
What blows my mind is that you can actually see the weave pattern on cloth and the hammer strikes on plate. Not to mention every fucking link in chain mail, and the different types of texture on leather.
>I want gayboi Geralts to leave
>not playing with the mod that replaces Geralt's skin texture to make him younger
you gay son?
Really? Why would she come back? You just had a tearful goodbye "Muh darling, this is the last I ever see of you" and she fucking reappears out of nowhere?
I... uh... wow
Can you give him normal hair and eyes?
I don't remember exactly, but the mission where you have to ask everyone to come back to base with you she's just kind of back at novigrad. She's either at her weird house or at the cabaret
I think most of people complaining in this threat dont even know how much autistic guys from CDPR are about those little details. And I must say that armors in this look game are amazing. Even those "shitty" ones.
Yeah. I thought the Griffith armor has kind of a weird potbelly look, but I know jack shit about armor so it's probably some realistic detail that they threw in that makes the armor turn aside thrusts better or something.
Would you let Shani dominate you, /v/?
Rather take Cerys desu
Just the time passing in-game.
Or maybe Kira?
>tfw no threesome with Sadfu and Shani
You do realize that Shani is a normal human, right? She would grow old and die. You, however, will live for another 500 fucking years. That's why Witchers like sorceresses (since they too live forever).
Anyone else getting this weird texture issue during/after fights?
Never had this problem.
No shit. Armor is worthless, worse than worthless, because if something gets its jaws around you or fucking smashes your tin can, guess what moron? You're inside it choking on your own ribs. Witcher gear is designed with movement and easily sheddable layers in mind so if a fucking Grave Hag or something gets a grip you can just fucking slide out of it, or if something fucking poisonous or acidic jizzes all over you, you can just fucking throw it on the ground. At best the most protection you would see on something are spikes for the express purpose of fucking up whatever is trying to chew on you in the hopes it lets you go and in the case of not being able to remove said article immediately.
This. In the books Geralt's armour is constantly getting torn to shit. He has no trouble fighting humans but against monsters he fails to dodge an attack like 50% of the time.
You retard. Have you played the game?
You fat roll most of the time in the Knight armour, it's only with the assistance of magical rings and/or the increase of endurance through Souls,which is superhuman power, that you can actively roll around.
Tier one Cat armor and the Temerian set are my favourites.
Fabrics look fucking insane up close in this game.
Still prefer it to the blue turtleneck desu.
I can't use that cat armor because I have to keep mirin
I think his obsession with sorceresses already shows in TW2. It was clear that he felt humiliated by Philippa and he really wanted to show her that she has no power over him anymore.
How come the lighting looks GOAT outdoors and in cutscenes, but it's usually flat as fuck indoors?
Looking through my screenshots and I still can't get over how good looking these clothing shaders are.
