If you want to get all the enjoyment possible out of Witcher 3 then you really have to have this book.
The book is laid out in a very logical, and familiar, flow. It starts with character development, and then, it hits all of the quests.
This game series is known for some "special" aspects, and these are covered in this book. For example there is an entire section on carnal knowledge. Also, our protagonist is known to be an avid gambler, and this book covers all of his adversaries and what the potential gains are from those encounters.
Honestly, I started playing the game, but I don't think I would've gotten through the first three quests without the aid of this guide.
I highly recommend it
1. This book lists only 15 Stone of Power...there are actually 25 not 15....some of these stones are only accessible through the main questline. (maybe that is why there is only 15 listed? not exactly certain on this). These stones are very important because each stone grants one talent point up to 25 points.
2. There were over a dozen DLCs available on the day of release, of those DLCs the Griffin, Cat, Wolven, Ursine crafting patterns were among those. The locations of these treasure hunts are not available within this guide as a result...I feel like they should have been. As it takes a significant chunk of time to locate these patterns already.
3. Endings: without this guide I would have been seriously annoyed when I reached the endgame, I would have made, unwittingly, dozens of choices that would have ruined the game in my eyes, kudos to the writers for making the impact of your choices clear!
Other than that, this guide is great for helping get you the gear, talents and ending you desire.
The huge chunk of this book is then devoted to two types of quests: Main line story quests and secondary quests. In a bit of inspired editing, the secondary quests that have a direct effect on the main story and/or its characters is included alongside the main line story quests. This is great when you want to follow the 'recommended' order of following the story and complete sidequests right alongside the main quest and not miss out on a single crucial decision! The next section after deals with every other secondary quest, witcher contract, races, treasure hunts, woman conquests and more, carefully detailing out all the potential variations of each quest based on YOUR decisions. So you can freely choose how you want the quest to play out with this knowledge. (they did this too in the main line story quest section as well)
The remainder of the book is an exhaustive collection of appendices detailing the bestiary, all your potential armor pieces and swords and how to craft them, alchemy and how to craft each, maps and locations pointed out for every area. There is no stone left unturned in this book and it is much appreciated from someone who loves to get 100% in every game. A purchase well worth the money! A great companion to the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt game. The additional 'lore' book that comes with isn't too shabby either and a highly interesting read in its own right. Recommended.
Each map also shows where all shops are in the map. However, my biggest grips, there is no separate listing of just shops and their locations. Instead, as stated, only the maps show the locations. I found the lack of a separate shop listing list to be rather hard to deal with since the maps are somewhat small and no better than the World Map to be honest (although on the world map, when shops close they are no longer shown in game).
There are some notes for character progression, but mostly the skills are a list with no notes. Still ok I guess.
The whole guide is beautiful and there is an art section in the very back. This is a good guide.
