    A question please about abilities.

    Does 'Rend' in the Strong Attack tree of Combat Abilities, only affect strong attacks? I ask as whilst some of the abilities specifically refer to strong attacks, that has a more general description.

    Many thanks and cheers. :)

    You do it like this:

    Code:
    [ spoiler=spoiler title] your spoilers [/ spoiler]
    Only without the spaces, other than maybe in your title.

    Thanks!

    I would have liked the cutscenes that you get when you completed story missions to be replayed at the end, kinda wrapping it all up and keeping it fresh on your mind.
    No cutscenes about the fate of your friends.
    I chose triss and lived with her, what of the fate of Yen?
    Free roam doesn't take into account of your choices, ie i opted to assassinate Rad and temeria was restored.
    I would have liked to see the effects of that on the world space. Nilfgardian/Temerian flags/troops around the place. TO SEE THAT I MADE A DIFFERENCE
    Lodge was restored? Maybe? got no ending on that take.
    the Academy (the huge island locked away)... never got access to it, DLC maybe?

    I read your spoilers, as I finished it, and I think we had the same ending.

    As for the Academy, that's not really a spoiler, and I certainly hope that it isn't one of the paid expansions. I am hoping the expansions will add at the very least an area the size of White Orchard.

    I think they are saying there to be about 30 hours of play in the DLC? This article seems to show that CDP are confident that thier DLC will be worth the money.

    Still though it is always hard to crack out what normal is 1/10 the content for ~1/5 the price.

    I think based on the epic collectors edition and the awesome world they have already delivered that CDP will produce value added content.

    Well... a couple areas the size of White Orchard would be around 30 hours of gameplay. White Orchard was the beginner area, designed to get you familiar with the setting, controls, and preparation for fights.

    I've been collecting cards as I go, but have not had a look at a guide yet to see what I'm missing. I often just go up to someone simply to play gwent with them again. Probably why I've played 80hrs and only just recently started some stuff in Skellige. Haha. Can't wait to do a second run of the game so I might need to hurry this one up. :) I'm looking forward try it with different choices from Witcher 2 as well as making different choices along the way.

    Well, the first win against everyone that plays gwent nets you a card as well as your gambling winnings.

    Every subsequent win nets you a random item, like nails, leather, fur scraps, etc.

    Then there are special cards you get from challenging certain players that don't require a gamble. They say they play for good cards, but if you lose, you don't lose anything to them. So you can keep trying until you win their card. These are tied to quests. There are also some unique cards that can only be won by certain players, even though they are not tied to quests.

    I watched a video of a couple people playing Gwent with the decks that came with the collectors edition, and noticed they were playing it wrong.

    It would be nice to see if they make a standalone real card game from it, but not a collectible card game, I hope.

    I also noticed there was a leak on next week's free DLC. One is going to be a new Gwent deck in the game.

    So, they stamped out the easy money exploit from killing cows, then meditating for an hour so the cow respawns. You get to collect quite a bit of cow hides to sell for a decent amount to vendors...

    This is how they fixed the problem of easy money exploit, and it's hilarious.

    On selling junk, what stuff do you all vendor and what do you disassemble?

    It's worth seeing what bits you get from dismantling items as there are some "junk" items that give you a needed part for a crafting (you can usually buy the bit from somewhere though).

    Most of the time I sell everything I can in the junk area to standard merchants and sell weapons and armor to either blacksmiths or armorers.

    Most basic stuff that has the regular inventory interface black background is not worth disassembling.

    However, I always defer to need. Do I need crowns, or do I need crafting components. I can always get more stuff to deconstruct, so if I'm low on crowns, I sell it all.

    Also, halfway through the game, I found myself disassembling monster parts more often than equipment for specific items.
