I'll go the signs and combat route, i played some of Witcher 2 so i'm familiar with them when i think about it, i'll get those signs next and work a bit towards Whirl too then.
Reading the dodge/roll comment, i think i remember reading that before actually with the stamina etc.
One last question, i sort of want to play relatively immersed and not be sat checking sites etc as far as achievements are concerned (i know the obvious answer is to just do a second playthrough) and i've read the guide you wrote with regards to the missables, but if i play the game actively completing quests as and when i get them or before leaving areas is it safe to assume i won't miss any of those missable achievements in a playthrough?
I think i've remembered where i was up too well enough to jump back in, but i'll probably be bugging you over the next week or two haha, i apologise now.
On Witcher i've definitely gone for fast attack but i cant remember if i was going to do Alchemy or Signs, which one do you recommend? Also whats the tactic for the one you choose, like what do i do with the alchemy skills. Pretty sure i'm on the highest difficulty too, dodge and attack?
Is there a recommended way to level too, like mix up putting ability points in both as i go, focus on one tree then the other etc, as i have 5/5 Muscle and 5/5 Precise blows, apparently i need 20 for whirl.
