According to Robert of Gloucester, he was the father of St. Helena, and if so, Butler must be wrong in ascribing an obscure origin to the celebrated mother of Constantine.

Chapter 1 1. Chapter 2 1. Chapter 3 1. Chapter 4 1. Chapter 5 1. Epilogue 1. When I reference other parts of the FAQ outside of the index, I put them in [] brackets, so as to make general searches using the index more efficient.

This is an organizational scheme used to prevent you from having to scroll through several referential brackets in order to find what you're looking for, as I reference other parts of the FAQ more frequently in this guide than I do in other FAQs I have written. Icewind Dale had prepared me somewhat for FAQ- writing, but I had yet to devise my current organizational scheme which made this process so much easier, and entering a game like the Witcher without a scheme just left me working on what quickly became a disorganized mess.

In Mass Effect I broke up large area transitions and introduced the three major headings see 'Using this FAQ' below , but it was in Fallout 3 where everything really came together. After that project, I was pretty confident that I could write a FAQ about any game mankind has yet devised.

With that confidence, I went back a generation and wrote about my favorite RPGs of all time-the Baldur's Gate games-before finding my way back to the Witcher. I'm quite aware that every copy of the Enhanced Edition shipped with a rather convenient game guide, an anomaly in the world of gaming I haven't seen a game come with a guide for it since..

Still, since nobody has slapped down any real money to coerce me into writing a FAQ for one game or another, I'll continue to write FAQs as a labor of love, rather than to fulfill some need there might be for such a FAQ. Ultimately in the case of the Witcher I had a genuine desire to comment on the game, and this is my chosen venue for such an adventure, and I fully intend to give the sequel the same treatment. In any event, this guide will give information you won't find in the game guide, and unlike said game guide, everybody will have access to it, whether they bought the game used, through Steam, or in case they lost it my personal bane when it comes to such things.

Allow me to pursue my time wasting hobby of commenting on my time wasting hobby, and if it helps make this game in any way more playable or enjoyable for you..

As for the game itself? Sure, it's not a party-driven game, but I find it to be a much more immersive RPG. Geralt is a blank slate who just serves one purpose-to provide the same lack of understanding of the Witcher's game world in the protagonist that we all have as players going into the game.

Lots of players of Baldur's Gate were familiar with the Forgotten Realms, but how many of us were familiar with Andrzej Sapkowski?

The game world is pure, gritty, medieval fantasy with an excellent story and memorable NPCs. I know as a FAQ-writer it's not my place to review a game, and certainly talking about its subjective elements is mostly a waste of time, but know this-I don't tend to write FAQs about games I'm not fond of..

Unfortunately, those of us who bought and played the Witcher were viewed as the 'few, brave souls' who gave it a chance. And it was well-deserved chance, for the Witcher is perhaps the best fantasy RPG to come out in years. For the sake of games like this, I feel I should advocate it. How else are we going to keep great RPGs like this on shelves unless fans of the genre support it? Don't take my word for it, though. You're reading a FAQ, not a review, so chances are you already bought it.

Play it, and find out for yourself. Any game where an NPC shouts "Your mother sucks dwarf cock" is a winner in my book, however. Anyway, this is how this FAQ will work, I'll have the full walkthrough for you folks who want everything explained, step-by-step, and it's my intention that you won't miss anything no matter what you do and what sides you take.

In addition to the times I've played through this game previously, for this FAQ I completed three additional play-throughs. One time I'll play through as the consumate Witcher-I won't pay attention to morality, I won't pick sides, and I won't play politics. On the other play-throughs I'll let my conscience be my guide, I play politics, and I'll pick sides. Please note, however, that my goal here is not so much to note the outcome of every possibility on a text file-I'm here to help people seek out the best options for resolving quests whenever possible.

If the quest branches into several subjective political routes, they will be recorded, but I feel no compulsion to fail quests just so I can relate what long-term effects such incompetence will cause. For example, whoever you side with at the end of Chapter 1 is more or less subjective, and either approach will be recorded. On the other hand, the 'Suspect' quests in Chapter 2 have right-and-wrong conclusions, and it will be the approach of this guide to correctly resolve those quests.

Above all else, this is a FAQ written by somebody with too much time on their hands, and perhaps too much fondness for RPGs. It's not a brief look at the game, and perhaps it's a fault, but I expect people going through my FAQs to desire to spend some time on the game and see pretty much everything there is to see. I know it's my intention to do so when I play games, and I just assume it's yours, as well. This-like most of my FAQs-tends to be more power-gamey, and the casual gamer might find my grinding regime and completionist tendencies to be over-bearing.

So be it. I'd rather my FAQs be pretentious and exhaustive whenever possible, rather than be under-developed and incomplete. This breaks up the missions into a series of steps, and limits how much unbroken text you'll have to read at once. Life and all. So cut me some slack. Besides, this organizational scheme is mostly for consistency and ease-of-use. I'll sometimes substitute the thick area transition line for a thin line. I usually do this when entering and leaving the same areas multiple times in a short time frame, or when we briefly enter-or pass through-an area, but do not explore it in detail at that time.

Or if I consider the area somehow minor or insignificant. As I go through areas I will list what I do sequentially. To help streamline the guide and make your life easier, I've included a list of steps at the beginning of each section, so you can see in what order I am about to do things.

Each different Sequence of Events is separated by a large heading, while each step is divided by a thick line if we travel to a different area or a thin line if we don't.

Many Sequences of Events in the walkthrough will simply be the start-to-end completion of a single quest. Despite this, I will not hold myself to such a rigid formula in the walkthrough, sometimes multiple quests will be updated at a time, while quests might be started in one Sequence, but finished in another.

Individual 'phases' of each quest, as the quests are organised in the in-game journal will not be noted in this guide. Press spacebar, and the game pauses. Since you don't have a party, and pausing is disruptive to chaining combos, I find pausing in this game to be less effective than in other games.

Except to switch to a more prevelant threat, there's not much of a case for pausing since you only control one character, but it's there if you need it. Without these entries, you may not be able recover many alchemy ingredients from monsters and plants, and you may not be able to access certain dialogue options.

Not only do thi make killing monsters less profitable, it makes some quests impossible to complete. You can't very well give somebody Ghoul Blood if you cannot harvest it, can you? And you can't question a character on their alchemical theories if you don't know them. You should buy as many books as you can-they pay for themselves. Local Antiquaries will sell you books, and you can also recieve books from characters during quests and as loot.

The most useful is the far Isometric camera. It lets you see more of the field, which is good for combat. Near Isometric is much of the same, but closer to Geralt. Third Person like in Gears of War puts the camera behind Geralt's shoulder. It's fun to run around outside of combat with this mode, since it makes the game world more immersive to be so close.

Targeting in combat while in third person mode is tricky, and reacting to multiple enemies is almost impossible. I use distant Isometric F1 for combat and most field navigation, and I use third person F3 for talking, quests, and boxing. Note: On my last playthrough with the new computer me and my girlfriend bought, I was able to jack all the graphical settings up to max, which made playing in the Third-Person camera mode an absolute joy. Combat is more difficult in this mode, sure, but with a more reliable computer 8gb RAM, 2gb video card, and an 8-core 3.

You left click on an enemy to attack, and when you get the flaming sword icon, you click again to advance to the next attack sequence in the attack chain. Where combat gets its depth is through the various styles, useful in different situations against different foes.. You also have various weapons with which to employ your syles. For a great portion of the game, your Witcher Steel will do more damage than any Normal weapons you find.

Miscellaneous weapons are usually one-handed weapons, such as daggers, hand axes, flails, and so forth. Your Witcher Silver weapon is your go-to weapon for any and all monsters you come across. Yes, you fight fire with fire.

Fast opponents will only dodge Strong attacks. Once you level up a great deal, your attack rating will be high enough to hit faster enemies with the Strong Style.. It might be worth discarding the Fast Style just for the stupendous damage output of the Strong Style, once you can pull it off. Fast opponents. You can really use this style against any foe, but your damage output will be sorely impared compared to using the Strong style. Against Fast opponents, this style is a must..

The damage output really ramps up when you've got a crowd to deal with. Keep in mind, against several powerful enemies, discretion is a better tactic than relying on the Group style. Ideally behind the monster or back. This will make Geralt dodge out of the way. Only enemies with slow, powerful, obvious attacks make this ability useful, like wyverns. In most cases, it's a better idea to just keep the pressure up. In Third-Person camera mode you double click a direction button to dodge in that direction.

Of course, it doesn't seem to matter whether I'm playing on a computer with no frameskips or not, I still can't dodge Bloedzuigers. Oh well. The best use of Geralt's ability to dodge is to escape sticky situations. As long as Geralt has his sword out, Geralt will perform various acrobatics if you dodge.

He's fully capable of vaulting over enemies, so if you're ever feeling boxed in, dodging 'towards' an enemy will allow Geralt to leap to safety. If you already have the selected weapon out and ready, pressing 'Q' again cycles through combat styles. E: Select second weapon typically reserved for silver sword. If you already have the selected weapon out and ready, pressing 'E' again cycles through combat styles.

R: Select third weapon substitute full-sized weapon. If you already have the selected weapon out and ready, pressing 'R' again cycles through combat styles. U: Select fourth weapon side-arm. Tab: Sheaths weapon. WASD: Directional movement buttons. Double-clicking one of these buttons while in combat will cause Geralt to tumble or dodge. F: Quick degree spin. Causes Geralt to about-face. G: In OTS camera mode, causes the camera to shift between shoulder-views. Geralt has signs that deal direct damage Ingi , allows him to set disabling and damaging traps Yrden , knock around debris and enemies-potentially setting up even stronger enemies for one-hit kills Aard , create time-buying defensive barriers Quen , and charm enemies Axii.

It's a versatile group, and although it might seem limited, it really covers most of the basics without undue repeatition. Still, Geralt's main tools are swords. You'll constantly find enemies resistant to status effects like most undead , and your Endurance level will limit the frequency with which Geralt can fall back on his Signs. Granted, with some Gold Talents invested into Endurance and Intelligence his Endurance level and Endurance regeneration rate removes this limitation to a large degree, they're still limited in a way swords simply aren't.

Signs are wonderful-and I use a healthy mix of both to create a supremely Best Wooden Sheds To Buy 7th potent Witcher-but you'll suffer more if you neglect your swords than you will if you neglect Signs. Once Chapter 3 starts Geralt can level quickly, easily, and often. With the investment of four Gold Talents and a dozen Silver Talents ideally purchased between levels 30 to 35 they can go from enemy softeners to downright fight winners. No Sign shows this progression better than Igni. In Chapter 1, it's best used to light fires so you can rest.

In Chapter 2, its inceneration can speed up select fights, but by Chapter 3 it can be used to clear out groups of enemies by itself-and rather economically, too. It's the first Witcher sign you learn, and it's also one of the best. I still put it behind my Sword Styles in priority when it comes to leveling, but it's a handy ability to be able to get pressure off, knock down singular strong enemies, or disarm attackers.

If you invest in charging the Sign up it'll gain a greater radius, which is nice for dealing with groups of humanoid elements-especially if you focus on improving the Knockdown, Stun, and especially the Disarm properties of the spell. It might seem like a waste to do this after all, no matter how many foes you effect, you'll only have to time to coup-de-grace one or two of them the fact that you can disable large groups gives you time to eliminate a few to take the pressure off, and while they're down you'll be regenerating Vitality and Endurance.

Ultimately Igni is a better crowd control spell, but the fact that Student, Apprentice, etc. In fact, if you're a fan of Aard, there really aren't any bogus talents in the tree.

Although not initially impressive, Geralt learns the sign late enough that it can be quickly upgraded to absorb a fair amount of damage. It's not, however, a defensive compliment, as attacking or casting another Sign will terminate your current barrier.

It's therefore meant to buy you time to apply buffs, such as potions and oils, or to get into better position. Honestly, on the default difficulty it's not a terribly useful spell, and many of its upgrades aren't terribly necessary. On the other hand, the Acid and Fire Resistances aren't something that can really be replicated otherwise. The charged-up version of the sign causes enemies to take damage when they attack you, and can even knock them down, making it an interesting passive-aggressive option that I can almost never find a real good reason to use.

Once they do, the Sign triggers and the enemies take some minor damage, as well as being subjected to a host of status effects, including Pain, and with upgrades Poisoning and Blinding, as well as inflicting attack and dodge penalties. It's a decent spell, and really, nothing else fills its niche. It's best used before you enter combat-cast the spell on a bottleneck, doorway, or other narrow path and lure enemies onto it. A few things prevent it from being great, however. First, many enemies are immune to its effects, and if you're dealing with humanoids, you might as well just use Aard.

Second, although it has multiple charges, its radius is rather small, and it will usually only effect an enemy once as they cross it. It would be infinitely more useful if it consistently attacked enemies standing upon it-and sometimes it does, if you stand behind the Sign and force them to attack over it-but most of the time it will not. Third, it just doesn't do enough damage.

If you want to harass enemies, Aard is better, if you want to damage them, Igni is better. If you charge the spell up, Geralt will stomp the ground, causing the Yrden Sign to automatically trigger and harm all enemies within a larger radius.

It's a nice area of effect attack, but it's much, much weaker than Igni, and once maxed Igni itself has a degree radius.. One more minor gripe is the fact that Yrden takes longer to cast than Aard and Igni. Still, its utility as an ambush-Sign gives Geralt a tactical option otherwise unavailable.. You can cast a Yrden before a big fight, wait for your Endurance to regenerate, lure the enemies onto it, and begin the fight at a decided advantage. You can only have one Yrden Sign active at once although using the charged, area-of-effect form won't dispel an active normal Yrden Sign.

It's pretty weak at a first, but at higher levels its damage can get high enough to down Drowners in one shot. The real fun part is the inceneration, which can deal heavy, persistent damage to enemies. At higher levels, it's often worth blasting a strong enemy before going at them with your sword in the hopes of setting them on fire.. It won't get you coup-de-graces like Aard will, but it still comes in handy.

If you diligently level Endurance and Intelligence, Igni can become the best crowd-clearing attack at Geralt's disposal. It can become so powerful that two shots can down even moderately powerful enemies, and Geralt's full Endurance bar can dispatch even the strongest of non-boss monsters. Last but not least, you can also use it to light Fireplaces, which eliminates the need for Flint entirely. The base spell which causes 'Hex' essentially gives you a chance to inflict the enemy with several incompatible statuses.

Temporarily making the enemy an ally, for one, and on top of that putting them to sleep or blinding them. If you convert an enemy, why would you want said convert to be sleeping or blind? On top of that, you can only affect one enemy at a time with Hex-targeting a new enemy dispels the Hex on the previous one. With the investment of a gold talent you can inflict another enemy with Hex. If you can't tell, I'm not a fan. On the other hand, the powered-up version of the spell can cause fear in a large radius around Geralt, and while I'm typically not much of a fan of enemies scattering, against particularly large groups of foes it can buy you some time and deflect some aggression.

Also, unlike the Hex function of the spell, causing fear doesn't render the affected foe s immune to your attacks-especially follow-up Igni blasts. Overall, I really can't recommend investing the points required to make this Sign powerful enough to use. Once you've learned the spell that circle teaches, it'll persist as a replenishing power-up that will enhance the effectiveness of the related sign for a duration. It can be a pretty handy to activate a circle to empower your Igni or Aard sign before an engagement.

If you advance through the Intelligence tree and purchase the talents 'Knowledge of the Cleansing Ritual' and 'Knowledge of the Life Ritual', you'll gain the ability to perform those at Places of Power, too. If you perform the 'Ritual of Purification' you'll reduce your toxicity, and if you perform the 'Ritual of Life' you'll gain increased Vitality regeneration for an hour and a half.

All in all, Places of Power are pretty cool, especially since their best ritual doesn't require any talents. Half of them will box you, at which you make a wager you can always get them to go to at least twice their base wager. Left-click to hit them, then right click and hold to dodge. Some enemies you can just click away on and wail on them, others you have to hit-dodge to avoid taking damage. It doesn't matter, you're strong enough that it's really, REALLY hard to lose a fight, even against the quest fighters.

Which brings us to the moral of the story-don't get into fights with genetically modified mutant super-warriors. If you get the 'Brawl' talent you can charge up attacks and unleash a devastating cheap-shot.

It'll deal a huge amount of damage if it connects, if it doesn't win the fight outright. If you get the 'Fistfight' talent it'll unlock new moves, which Geralt will randomly perform during fistfights instead of normal attacks.

These are purely beneficial, and tend to strike twice for each successful hit, instead of once like normal attacks. Neither talent is necessary. The way to win every boxing match? Make an attack, left-click and immediately after the attack dodge right-click.

Don't hold the dodge button down, as normal, just tap it. This resets the animations. Immediately after letting go of the dodge button, attack again. Continue until victorious. I hate it. But it makes good money, especially in the later chapters.

It's really simple, poker with dice, best two-out-of three rounds wins the game. I just save and reload until I win, and I'd be surprised if others do not. If you think it makes you gosu or hardcore, by all means, you play those dice without resetting. For me, I want positive cash flow. As in normal poker, higher numbers win, so a two-of-a-kind of fours would beat a two-of-a-kind of ones.

In a tie, the player with the next highest die wins. If you both have three-of-a-kind in threes, and you have a four as your next highest, and they have a six, they win. It is possible to draw, but this is rather unlikely. It may just be my paranoia, but it seems that the more aggressively you bet, the more often you tend to lose.

If you and your opponent have an even hand, and you bet the highest you can on the next hand, chances are they'll pull out an upset. If you're more modest, however, you seem to get better dice. Of course, if you start out with a Full House, Three-of-a-Kind, or some other high hand and the opponent has nothing, by all means, bid aggressively.

Chances are they'll just yeild. On that note, opponents behave differently depending on their 'intelligence' and skill level. You'll get less stupid mistakes with more talented players, and by the time you're playing Professionals, you can expect them to reliably play the odds. You, however, should not necessarily play the odds. Normally if you had Two Pairs the best option would be to roll the lowest two and the useless third dice to attempt to get a Three-of-a-Kind or better.

That makes sense, right? Three chances to get one number, it's a 3-in-6 chance. Perhaps I'm just paranoid and with this mini-game, I'm almost certain I am but the computer seems to want you to take chances and roll for certain results. If you roll for the Full House, you are much more likely to get it than seems fair. Granted, you've got a 2-in-6 chance to get one of the numbers you need, but it seems to happen far more often than that.

Likewise, if you are one dice away from a Five-High-Straight or Six- High-Straight, you should often go for the missing number, even if you have a Two-of-a-Kind. The odds are for the Three-of-a-Kind, but my experience tells me that you're more likely to get the Straight. Lastly-and this might be karma-but the game seems to hate it if you try to win too often. In Chapter 2, playing a round of dice with Thaler is a good idea.

After all, it's Orens per game. Why wouldn't you keep playing him? That's some of the best money you can get at that point in the game. If you get greedy, however, the game seems to favor the computer. Call me crazy, or perhaps my luck sucks something horrible, but when I go on a streak against somebody without winning a single game..

Play sparingly- make it part of your boxing routine-but I tend to play one game until I win, then I go about my business until I'm ready to box again. Want good evidence of how much I suck at this game? I bothered to record my wins and losses at dice poker during the three playthroughs of this game around which this FAQ was written, and the results are as follows: Dice Poker Results W - L - 1T Paranoia, or is this mini-game a rat-bastard cheating piece of shit?

You decide, but as far as I'm concerned, my numbers decided for me. Mind you, these are the number of hands won, not games. My girlfriend wants to point out that she had much better luck at this mini-game than I did, and when I bothered to watch her play, I really can't argue. Perhaps it's that fabled 'luck of the Irish', finally showing its face. Doesn't help her win the lottery, but I'll be damned if it took her more than two tries to beat anybody in this game.

Using the correct tools for the job can be helpful on the default difficulty, although I don't recall a single situation where it was mandatory.

Still, there's no reason to deny yourself access to the tools of the trade because some blow-hard FAQ writer told you that you probably won't need to use them, is there? These all come in varying degrees of potency, but the stronger the base the more slots for ingredients the base will have, and hence, the stronger items that base can create. For example Soldier's Hooch is Strong Alcohol with three ingredient slots, Cherry Spirit Cordial is Strong Alcohol with four ingredient slots, and White Gull-technically a Potion used as a base for other Potions-has five ingredient slots.

In addition to bases you'll need Alchemical Ingredients. There are scores of ingredients in the Witcher, but what matters are the elements contained within them. Ingredients contain one of seven primary element, and some also carried one of three secondary elements, as show below.

If you have a base, and the appropriate ingredients the item you want to make will be lit on the left side of the screen, otherwise it'll be greyed out.. You can also experiment blindly to make items, but with how many combinations there are..

Selecting a potion you know and can make will automatically distribute the ingredients, albeit not very wisely. The computer never takes into account which components are more common and it doesn't take secondary components into consideration.

If you're blindly creating items or using this guide's recipes to create items keep in mind that it won't be added to your Journal until you create and use the item. After that, the recipe will be added to your Journal and will be much easier to make. Towards the end of Chapter 2 it might be a good idea to just create everything that interests you, so you won't have to bother with looking up the recipes again.

Matching all the secondary elements will create a potion with added effects. For example, if you make a Cat potion Rebis and two Quebrith with Ruebedo as a secondary element in all three for example, a potion made with Green Mold and two Gravier Bones you'll get a Cat potion with Ruebedo as its dominant substance.

In addition to letting you see in the dark, this potion will increase your vitality regeneration. It might sound complex, but there are only three secondary elements: Albedo, Nitrol, and Rubedo. If you use components with the required primary elements and identical secondary elements, you'll get a secondary substance dominated potion. You still will get bronze talents at level 15, you'll just get silver as well. After level 50, you will no longer gain talents from leveling up..

Still, at two Vitality per level after level 50, you might as well consider level 50 to be the unofficial level cap. There's just no point in working to get higher than that. The higher level you are, the less you gain for killing enemies in combat. More specifically every level reduces the amount of experience gained by 5. Quests give static experience points, and generally a good number of them. To go from level zero to level one, you need one thousand experience.

To go from level one to level two you need two thousand more a total of three thousand , and so on. After you reach a satisfactory level or the enemies stop giving good experience doing the quests will further increase your level. You really dont need to do this at all to beat the game, as quests and incidental monster encounters will do fine getting you the basic experience you need.

If you want a powerful Geralt who can handle anything the game can throw at him, you'll grind at some point. The early-going will be tougher, but you'll save a bit of time.

The only trouble you'll have in this area is avoiding the quests 'Racists' up by the river and 'She's No Early Bird' outside of the gates leading to the Country Inn.

These quests trigger with proximity, and avoiding them prevents you from making a circut of the map when grinding. Still, it's no big deal if you complete those two quests and then grind.. To grind, just run around outside of the Country Inn, you can do a circut up to town either way you go. You'll mostly be fighting Barghests, but there's a Ghoul who spawns near the houses between the Country Inn and the Royal Huntsman, and groups of Drowners that spawn near the docks.

This all becomes much simpler if you brave the Crypt and kill several Ghouls in order to claim the Igni sign- then you don't need to rely on Flint or pay the Innkeeper 5 Orens to rest. To get access to the Crypt, talk to the 'Con Artist' in the Temple District near the sewer entrance he'll be there between and Agree to do a little grave-robbing and he'll give you a key to the crypt.

Note that level 15 is the suggested amount of grinding you should do to make life easier, but it's easy, if time-consuming, to reach higher levels here There is one thing you might have noticed about this area, however.. Instead, turn your gamma up to 2. It's ugly, to be sure, and certainly not the ideal way to play the game, but it works.

Kill the several Graviers wandering about, ignore the Ghouls to save time, and rest at the campfire for an hour. Wash, rinse, repeat. In the Swamp Cave you'll find a pack of Cockatrices which give almost three times more experience than Graviers- factor in the dip in experience gained from Geralts level and this gap will only widen, so that at level 30 Geralt would gain only experience per Gravier, but still from Cockatrices-one Cockatrice kill would give more experience than an entire run through the Crypt in Chapter 2.

All you have to do is return to the Swamps, enter the Swamp Cave, and smite the Cockatrices. Head outside and rest at the Fireplace near the Swamp Cave entrance this time you'll need to rest 24 hours, rather than just one to respawn the enemies. Repeat until satisfied. There's really only one dark tunnel to worry about, so no need for a Cat potion or gamma manipulation. The only annoying issues with this run are the Wolves that spawn in the cave they're trash mobs by now and the Drowners, Drowned Dead, Bloedzuigers, and Kikimores outside the cave.

The latter give nice experience, but it's still meagre compared to what a Cockatrice kill gives you. Also, since the Cockatrices in the Swamp Cave generally number from between six to ten, you can easily obtain experience per run.. No, not about how to level, that was all that grinding information I gave above. This tells-in brief-how I generally go about building my Geralt. I'll admit, I'm fond of melee, and I tend to focus on only a few signs. Granted, it's hard to do anything else with Geralt, and since the game is well- balanced, it's more worthwhile to discuss when to get what talents, instead of whether or not to get them.

Within the attribute trees, stick to talents that are the most universally useful. You dont need fist fighting talents at the beginning if ever , and powering up after being reduced to a low percent of your vitality isn't as good as taking talents that work all the time and thus prevent your vitality from being lowered in the first place! And most of all, don't forget Herbalism. You really should have it by the time you leave Kaer Morhen. Again, general bonuses are better than specific ones.

I'd say focus on all the styles fairly equally get them all up to level 2 and then focus on Group Steel. After all, groups of enemies are usually more dangerous than any single enemy-you're much more likely to get killed by a group of Barghests, Drowners, or Salamandra Assassins because you neglected the Group Style than you are likely to get killed by a singular strong foe for neglecting Strong Steel or Fast Steel.. As for Signs, you only start out with Aard. Never to fret, it's possibly the best sign in the game.

Igni is good as well, and you get it in Chapter 1. Again, level up the base level of the sign, and ignore the talents like Student and Apprentice. Get Stun, Gust and later Disarm. Now you should be able to simply use Aard on most opponents and stun them or knock them down, after which you can move in for the coup'de'grace. Once you hit Chapter 2 you're going to quickly want to focus on bringing your Silver Sword up to snuff, as it'll do more damage unleveled than your Steel Sword will leveled to monsters.

Once they become available, I typically turn my Geralt into a melee monster following the same general rules above-level up attributes first.. Then I focus on Strong Silver, since it's what I'll be using to kill the groups of necrophages that I'm grinding for experience. They're fairly dangerous, and it's likely you'll end up fighting two or three Graviers at a time, so survivability is everything. After that, the major melee skills have been obtained, and I proceed to level up Stamina, Intelligence, the sword styles, and the signs, as normal.

Note that obtaining Ingredient Extraction in a timely manner will make this entire grinding process that much more profitable. Of course, on the downside, it makes them desirable to hunters and trappers. Some of these predators survive the winter by hibernating, by sleeping right through it.

And some change colors. You've heard of the ermine, right? In the summer, the ermine is dark brown, but in the winter, it turns white. That makes it hard to spot, so it can sneak up on its prey. Then, uh, what sorts of herbivores live up there? What do the predators eat to stay alive? There's the moose, of course, but only young moose are at risk of being attacked.

The adult moose is the biggest, strongest animal found in the taiga, so a predator would have to be feeling pretty desperate to take on one of these. Mostly, predators hunt smaller prey, like snowshoe rabbits, voles, lemmings. Okay, the next biome we come to is the temperate forest, where broadleaf trees like, oh, maples and oaks are most common, but before we get to this, I'd like to give you an opportunity to ask me some questions about the taiga.

Narrator: Now get ready to answer the questions. You may use your notes to help you. Narrator: Question 6: What does the professor say about the word taiga? Narrator: Question 7: Why does the speaker say this: Professor: This sub-zone-well, if you like variety, you're not going to feel happy here.

You can travel for miles and see only half a dozen species of trees. In a few days, we'll be talking about the tropical rain forest; now, that's where you'll see variety. Narrator: Question 8: The professor discussed three subzones of the taiga. Match each sub-zone with its characteristic.

Narrator: Question 9: When discussing needle-leaf trees, which of these adaptations to cold weather does the professor mention? Narrator: Question What characteristic do all of the predators of the taiga have in common? Narrator: Question What does the professor imply about moose?. So when the agreement that ended the war, the Treaty of Versailles, it was called, was signed, it included a provision that. Its headquarters were in Geneva, Switzerland. But, the problem with the League from the beginning was that some of the most powerful nations of the time never joined.

As I said, the, ah, the main drive, the main impetus for forming the League came from Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States. But during the 's, the United States went through a period of isolationism.

In other words, it just basically withdrew from international affairs. Wilson worked and worked to get the U. Senate to agree to join the League, but he never could. Other powerful nations joined but then quit-or were kicked out. The other problem was, ah. It had no armed forces. It could only apply economic sanctions, boycotts, and these were pretty easy to get around.

The League of Nations did have a few successes early on. And the League also had some success in refugee work and famine relief and so on. Oh, and it brokered some deals, some treaties to get countries to reduce the size of their navies. Then, after the war, it was replaced by the United Nations, which, of course, was headquartered in New York City.

Still, the League of Nations was, ah. It developed a new model of Internationalism. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, "Internationalism" really just meant alliances of powerful nations, and these alliances often dragged other countries into conflict-that's what happened, really, that's what led to World War I.

But the League was at least an attempt to bring all the nations of the world together to work for peace. True, it didn't work, not really, but at least there was an effort made. Oh, and another thing I meant to add, the structure of the League of Nations, the, ah, administrative structure, the "government," if you will-was very similar to that of the United Nations. The secretary-general, the secretariat, the general assembly, the security council, these are all fixtures of the United Nations that came from the League of Nations.

Okay, we're going to have to wait until next class to discuss the United Nations, but. I just wanted you to be aware of the League of Nations because of its role, its, ah. Narrator: Now get ready to answer the question. Narrator: Question 8: What is the main subject of this lecture? Narrator: Listen to a lecture in an environmental studies class. Professor: Let's go ahead and get started. I'd like to finish up our discussion of alternative energy sources this week.

Remember our definition of an alternative energy source? It has to be environmentally friendly. And what else? Not like oil or coal. When you use those, bang, they're gone, they're used up.

Renewable sources keep replacing themselves. Okay, so we discussed solar power and wind power one day. That's the energy that comes from hot water, from hot springs under the earth. In places like, oh, say, Iceland, parts of New Zealand, where you have these, uh, features, this can be a very good source of heat and power.

But unfortunately, hot springs aren't found all over the world. Okay, well, there is another source of geothermal power, called "hot dry rock. Ever heard of it? No, eh? Well, the chances are, you'll hear a lot about it before long. How does HDR energy work? Well, in theory, anyway. You use oil-well drilling equipment, big drills, and you punch two holes down into the earth about, oh, maybe two miles-five kilometers, maybe-that's about as far as you can drill into the earth, for now, at least.

Down there, deep in the earth, there is this extremely hot cauldron of rock, of granite. So then, you pump water from the surface into the first tube. The water goes down to the hot rock and becomes superheated. Then, the superheated water rises up the second tube-oh, I forgot to mention that these two tubes are interconnected-this hot water rises up the other tube and you use that to heat up a volatile liquid-do I need to go into what I mean by that?

So then, this volatile liquid turns into a vapor, a gas, and you use it to turn an electrical turbine, and. And then, when the water has cooled down, you just send it down the first tube again, so that you don't waste water. So, does HDR technology meet our criteria for alternative energy? Let's see. Is it environmentally friendly? You bet. There are no toxic gases, no greenhouse emissions, no nuclear wastes. Is it renewable? Sure it is, 'cause the earth automatically replaces the heat that is used.

Here's another possibility. The seawater is heated way past boiling, so you could separate water vapor from the salt and other minerals in the seawater. After you used the hot water vapor to generate electricity, you'd have pure, fresh water for thirsty cities nearby-and as a side effect, you have the salt.

Now, will this work everywhere? No, conditions have to be just right-you have to have really, really hot granite masses no more than about 5 kilometers below the earth. We know there are places like this in Australia, in the southwestern United States, in France, a few other places. There are probably a lot of other sites too, that we are not aware of. In fact, there may be a lot of HDR sites, and who knows how important a source of power this may turn out to be. These could be up and running in a decade or less.

Of course, getting started will be expensive. Drilling a hole that far into the ground, building generators, all of that will cost lots of money.

But, you know, the way oil prices keep going up-HDR energy production could become more and more financially attractive. Okay, I'm gonna hand out a diagram of what one of these, uh, prototype HDR facilities looks like, the one in Australia, and then once you've had a chance to take a look at it, we'll talk some more about it.

Narrator: Question 9: What is the main idea of this lecture? Professor: What does a case look like? Well, cases are basically descriptions of actual-let me stress that-of real business situations, chunks of reality from the business world. So, you get typically ten to twenty pages of text that describe the problem, some problem that a real business actually faced.

And then there will be another five to ten pages of what are called exhibits. Student B: Exhibits? What are those? Professor: Exhibits.

They might be oh, spreadsheets, sales reports, umm, marketing projections, anything like that. But as I said, at the center of every case, at the core of every case, is a problem that you have to solve.

So, you have to analyze the situation, the data-and sometimes, you'll see you don't have enough data to work with, and you might have to collect more-say, from the Internet.

Then, you have to make decisions about how to solve these problems. Narrator: What does the professor say about exhibits? Professor: So, what are conditions like in the taiga?

Well, to start with, you've gotta understand that it's cold there. I mean, very cold. Summers are short, winters long.

So the organisms that call the taiga home have to be well adapted to cold. The trees in the taiga, as I already said, are coniferous trees like the pine, fir, and spruce. And these trees, they've adapted to cold weather. Well, for one thing, they never lose their leaves-they're "evergreen," right, always green, so in the spring, they don't have to waste time-don't have to waste energy-growing new leaves. They're ready to start photosynthesizing right away. And then, for another thing, these trees are conical-shaped like cones-aren't they?

This means that snow doesn't accumulate too much on the branches; it just slides off, and so, well, that means their branches don't break under the weight of the snow. And even their color-that dark, dark green-it's useful because it absorbs the sun's heat. Narrator: When discussing needle-leaf trees, which of these adaptations to cold weather does the professor mention? This means that a day on Venus is longer than a year on Venus! In fact, a day on Venus is longer than.

And here's something else weird. All the planets of the solar system turn on their axis in the same direction as they orbit the Sun. All except Venus, of course! It has what's called a. Narrator: Which of the following is not true about the length of a day on Venus? My favorite pieces. They're just beautiful, the way they glow. I couldn't believe it wasn't the work of some, some professional artist.

Student A: Well, the main reason I'm going is. She wanted me to see her newest work. Student B: Your sister's an artist? Student A: Yeah, she's a painter. She also, well, she just started volunteering to teach art to kids and. I think the way her students paint has sort of rubbed off on her. I think her kids have influenced her more than she's influenced them, as a matter of fact.

She's using these bright colors, and. Student B: Oh I think I saw her paintings! There was one of a house perched on a hill, and another one of a purple lion. I love the colors she uses! Narrator: Question 5: Why was the woman confused at first when the man asked her for directions?

Narrator: Question 6: According to the woman, what is directly in front of the art building? Narrator: Question 7: What was the woman's favorite exhibit at the art show? Narrator: Question 8: What can be inferred from the conversation about the man's sister? Narrator: Listen to a conversation between two students. Also, I'm interested in theater, and I'll be taking a course in, uh, Greek drama too. Student A: You know, I'll bet it's gonna be. I mean, it was hard enough for me to find a decent apartment here in town where I've lived for a couple of years and hey, I speak the language.

So I can't even imagine looking for an apartment someplace like Athens and not being able to speak Greek. Student B: Okay, well, there are actually two kinds of. One is called an independent program.

If you sign up for that kind of program. But the other type of program-they call it an "island plan"-Student A: Why do they call it that? Student B: I dunno. I guess. I guess because you're kinda on your own little island even though you're overseas.

Anyway, if you go with the island plan, you. That's the program I. Student A: Oh, that's the way I'd do it too, if I were going. It just sounds. Student B: Well, in a way, I'd rather be in an independent program. It might be a bit tough, but I think I could handle it. There are some programs, in fact, where they place you with a local family. I'd actually love to live with a family or just out in the community.

Plus it's cheaper to go that way. There's no salary-it's not exactly a paid position. But your room is free and you're entitled to ten meals per week at the cafeteria at Donahue Hall. Student: Really? Hmmm, well, I guess I'd be saving a lot of money on rent and on meals but. I'm just afraid it would be too noisy for me to study, to concentrate. See, like I said, I'm in my last semester here, and I'm taking some pretty tough classes this semester.

I just. Administrator: Well, I'm not going to lie to you and say that the residents will always be quiet and orderly. I mean, come on, they're undergrads, mostly freshmen, so. But during the week, there are quiet hours, from 7 till 10 and then from midnight on. Here, I'll put it on the board for you. Potlatches were held to. Now, some linguists think that the English word potluck might be derived from this word potlatch. The word potlatch is originally from the Chinook language.

A form of their language, called Chinook Trade Jargon, became a trade language, a language used by tribes all over the region to communicate with one another.

So, ah, the word potlatch spread, and. Student B: Professor Burke, were these potlatches. Professor: Well, no, as a matter of fact, they were quite a bit different. I suppose the best way. I think the best way to describe a potlatch is as a birthday party in reverse.

Student B: Huh? What do you mean? Professor: Well, at a birthday party, what happens? The guests all bring gifts, right? At a potlatch, it's the host who gives the gifts and the guests who receive them. Student A: Sounds like a pretty good deal for the guests! Professor: In a way it was, but-but in a way it wasn't. Let me describe a typical potlatch to you. A host-it was often a chief or an important person of some kind-would invite people from his tribe or from other tribes in the area.

The guests would arrive and there would be some dancing. Then the guests would be seated, and the host and his family, his relatives would serve the guests a huge, formal feast. Student B: Professor Burke, excuse me. I couldn't help wonder.

Professor: Well, the tribes that had potlatches all lived near the ocean, so what kind of food do you think they served?

Student B: Ummm. I'm guessing fish. Professor: Right. Mostly salmon, salmon was the staple food of the Northwest tribes, they spent a lot of their time salmon fishing and then preserving salmon. They might also serve whale meat, or seal meat, or venison. They'd dip these foods into pots of seal oil to give them more flavor. Okay, then after the feasting, the host would start distributing gifts.

Student B: What kind of gifts would the host give away? Professor: Well, the most common gift was food: salmon. The host would pack smoked fish in these. Other gifts they might give. And, and, ah, after these tribes came in contact with Americans and Canadians of European origin, the gifts became more.

There might be sacks of flour, dishes, eating utensils. I even remember seeing a photograph of a potlatch from, oh, around , where a guest is receiving a sewing machine! Student B: So, what else happened at a potlatch? Professor: Well, then the host would usually destroy some of his most valuable possessions, such as fishing canoes, and he'd throw coins and. Student A: What?! Excuse me, Professor. I just don't get it.

It just seems kinda crazy to me. Why would anyone want to host a party like that? Professor: Okay, well, first off, gift-giving rituals like this are not all that uncommon. I mean, there have been societies all around the world that have gone in for these types of ceremonies, but.

See, these tribes. Well, in short, they were highly status conscious. To them, looking good in the eyes of other people was very, very important, and that's what a, a potlatch was all about.

It was a means of establishing rank. Student A: How's that? Professor: Well, by accepting gifts at a potlatch, the guests. And when they were destroying or throwing away valuables, the hosts were really saying, "I'm so important, I'm so wealthy, I can afford to smash up my stuff and throw away my money!

Professor: Ah, but you see, Andy, there was a catch! In some ways, potlatches were actually a form of. Student A: Investment? Professor: Sure. The guests, all the guests at a potlatch were honor-bound to pay the host back by having potlatches of their own Wooden Sheds Buy Ireland Twitter and inviting the host.

Student A: Oh, I get it-it was an investment because then the host would be invited to lots of potlatches. And the potlatches that the guests held had to be at least as elaborate as the one they'd been invited to.

There was this one tribe called the Kwakiutl who lived up on Vancouver Island. Now this group. They had the most elaborate, most ritualistic potlatches of all the tribes in the Northwest. When the Kwakiutl held potlatches, they would use the ceremony as a. They'd throw such extravagant potlatches that their enemies would go broke trying to match them.

Student A: Wow, that was a. Student B: So, do these tribes still have potlatches? Professor: That's a really good question. Both the U. I suppose government officials just somehow didn't like the idea of people giving away their possessions. At the time, they didn't realize how important potlatches were. But nowadays-in fact, ever since the 's in Canada and the 's in the United Statespotlatches are legal again. If anything, they're an even more essential element of these societies than they were before.

Narrator: Question 1: What does the professor say about the word potlatch? Narrator: Question 2: What was the most common gift at a potlatch? Narrator: Question 3: What purpose did seal oil serve at a potlatch? Narrator: Question 4: What does Professor Burke imply about the photograph of a potlatch taken in ? Narrator: Question 6: What does Professor Burke say about potlatch ceremonies held today? Narrator: Listen to a lecture in a space science class. Professor: As I said at the end of our class on Tuesday, today I'm going to talk about a growing problem in the sky.

You can call it. The problem started back in the late 's. The Soviet Union launched the first satellite-Sputnik, it was calledin And that's, that's when a tracking network was first set up, too, to monitor bodies in orbit. Today, there's a worldwide network of 21 telescopes and radar stations called the, umm, the Space Surveillance Network, that keeps track of all this stuff, all these items in space.

Almost every launch contributes to the problem, contributes to the amount of junk up there circling the earth. There are non-functioning satellites, food wrappers, an astronaut's glove, the lens cap from a camera, broken tools, bags of unwashed uniforms. Luckily, most of this junk burns up when it re-enters the atmosphere, just like little meteors. And although old pieces fall out of the sky, new pieces are launched. On average, there's a net increase of around pieces per year. Today there are around 13, pieces of.

And of those, only about are still active, still useful pieces of equipment. Most of it is in what is called low-Earth orbit, within. There are also about a thousand pieces in high orbit. It's in a very thin, very narrow ring, shaped like a bicycle tire, about 22, miles above the Equator.

The, uh, Surveillance people can only monitor objects bigger than about a baseball. There are probably, I'd say about half a million pieces of debris that are just too small to be monitored. Most of these small objects are tiny flecks of paint or little pieces of metal, say around the size of a grain of sand.

Some orbital debris is huge-big as a bus! The smallest pieces are not that dangerous, not usually. When they hit a spacecraft, they only cause, oh, just some surface damage.

Several times outer windows on the space shuttle have had to be replaced because of collisions with micro-objects in space, but there was no real danger. And the really big pieces-those are mostly empty booster rockets or other rocket parts-they're not necessarily all that dangerous either.

Why not? Because these large objects can be detected by radar and so. Several times shuttles have had to maneuver to avoid getting close to large pieces of debris. But it's the medium-sized pieces that represent the biggest danger. These objects are so dangerous, of course, because of their tremendous speed. They can be moving up to 12 miles per second. That's way faster than a bullet. If one of these flying pieces of debris-say, a lost screwdriver, or a piece of an antenna that broke off a satellite-if one of these hit a space shuttle or the International Space Station-it could puncture the outer hull.

Then what would happen? You'd have de-pressurization-all of the air inside would rush out into the vacuum of space, and then, you'd have a disaster on your hands. So far-fortunately-there has never been a major collision involving a manned spacecraft but.

And there, there have also been some collisions of these pieces of debris themselves. In January of , the engine from a Thor rocket launched by the United States thirty years ago and a fragment of a Chinese rocket that blew up five years ago met over Antarctica. The event was recorded by a camera on a surveillance satellite. The collision produced even more pieces of space junk.

So, what can we do, what can be done about this problem? Well, a couple of years ago, space engineers came up with an idea, a possible way to solve this, uh, this debris problem. Here's what they suggested. You build a "junk collector," a large cone or group of cones that fits on the front of a spacecraft. The cone is full of sticky plastic fibers that trap debris inside it. This invention is still in its conceptual stage, but. You could launch unmanned satellites equipped with these devices and radar sensors and you could actively hunt down dangerous pieces of space junk.

Or you could put one of these on the front of a manned spacecraft and use it as a defensive shield. Oh, and another possible solution. Okay, anyone have any questions for me? Narrator: Question 7: What happens to most pieces of orbital debris? Narrator: Question 8: How many orbital bodies are being monitored today? Narrator: Question 9: Why is it impossible to monitor most pieces of orbital debris?

Narrator: Question Which of the following types of orbital debris would not be particularly dangerous to astronauts on a spacecraft? Narrator: Question The professor describes a collision in space between which of the following objects? Narrator: Question What can be inferred about the collector described in this portion of the talk?

Narrator: Listen to a discussion in a pharmacy class. Professor: Good morning, all. This is our last class before the final, you know, and I told you I'd give you a little more information about the test today, but. This term we've been discussing, mmmm, different types of, of pharmaceutical drugs. Today, though, I'd like to spend a little time discussing another class of drugs. You could lump them all together and call them herbal drugs or herbal remedies.

Student: Oh, I just read a magazine article about herbal drugs. It said that herbal remedies were becoming more and more popular. Professor: That's probably true. I've heard that, oh, something like 12 million people in the United States use herbal drugs and. Student B: So, Professor Findlay-why do you think-why is it important for pharmacists to know about herbal medicines? I mean, usually patients don't get prescriptions and come to pharmacists for herbal remedies, do they?

They just buy them at. I don't know, health food stores and so on, right? Professor: Well, there are several reasons, Thomas. For one thing, pharmaceutical and herbal medicine have a lot.

I mean, think about it, at one time all drugs came from herbs and other plants. At one time, the "pharmacist" was just some guy, well, usually some woman, who knew what herbs were helpful and knew where to look for them. Also, a lot of pharmaceutical drugs in use today, they, mmm, originally came from herbal sources. Student B: Really? For some, it is grounded in a deep connection to place or country.

For others, it is a reinvention that springs forth from imagination and. They are not scenes taken from the world as we know it, but rather are works of fiction. The decision to split the exhibition across two locations was due to the limited size of the Gallery. The Culture Hub, located upstairs at Coffs Central was transformed into a second space to welcome an entire Archibald Prize for the first time. The determination of the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery team in ensuring the community could experience the entire exhibition paid off.

So, what is Delphi Goes Bassooning about? But the more I wrote and rehearsed, reflected, and pondered, the more clear were universal themes of secrecy, forgotten memories, generational legacy - the beliefs that are emotionally and culturally passed down through families. The stories are told through nine original songs, and five characters - a stroppy yearold, a mother, a grandmother, a cabaret singer, and ofcourse, me!

Even the bassoon gets to. At heart this show is a love story for my mother and my grandmother, and a tiny musical about coming out into the world as an artist. And so, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Delphi Goes Bassooning - a tiny musical.
