Zerrikanian saddlebags 100 1.76 350 Main article: The Witcher3 trophies are special monster parts that can be placed in the trophy slot, and thus strapped to Roach's saddle. They provide bonuses such as additional XP for killing certain enemies, or a chance of finding extra gold or herbs.
Using this method it is possible to quickly obtain high tier horse equipment for Roach. Which in fact will be the best in the base game excluding a few that are obtained in Blood and Wine expansion.
After that do the final race from The Heroes' Pursuits: For the Goddess' Glory! If you have Hearts of Stone then instead do Races: Swift as the Western Winds (although suggested level is 32 the quest can be done at any level as it's only a race) if you win you will obtain the Offer stock saddle which is even better than the Zerrikanian saddle.

Upgrades can often be found in guarded loot chests, or purchased from merchants, and each item has several tiers of effectiveness. Saddles in The Witcher3 : Wild Hunt are special items that increase the Stamina of your horse allowing it to gallop longer distances.

Or if you don't want to buy it you can win it via the horse races quest line. I bought mine from a vendor in NORAD. You can buy the 100 weight bag from a merchant in the Bits, which is the place where the King of Beggars resides in NORAD. The Official Master Bear Clan Witcher of the Witcher3 Boards...
You can get them for free by winning the three-four ridiculously easy 1 minute races in Kellie The saddle appears to be fashioned of strange leather, the hide from some unknown beast.
Caparison of Lament is a unique horse saddle in the Hearts of Stone expansion. You are given this saddle if you allow Master Mirror to take Olgierd's soul, and you choose “To be as swift as the wind”.
According to the description, it also applies a short-range effect, possibly similar to the stagger caused by the Axis ability Delusion. Sometimes the effect will cause enemies to panic instead of getting stunned, in which case they react as if they were burned.
By which we mean, the dang thing is so long that entire trends will have come and gone in the time it takes you to finish the story. When you're sitting down with the intent of investing that much time in a game, it's good to know a few things when you're first starting out.
So here it is, your spoiler-free rundown of handy tips and tricks to make your first steps in The Witcher3's vast world a little easier. And the only time you can't rob it out from under every villager's nose is when a little text pop-up appears to let you know that nearby guards are watching, and they'll be pretty annoyed if you steal something.
Merchants tend to pay more (or outright only purchase) the types of things that they sell, so if a blacksmith isn't buying a stack of books from you, it's got nothing to do with the fact that they're stolen. Swap these out for proper useful money at Vivaldi's Bank, which is right near the Hierarchy Square fast-travel point in the city of NORAD.
They're marked on the minimal as green, sign-shaped icons, and there's one to be found near just about every major landmark (and many minor ones as well) in the game. Just board a boat, take control of it by interacting with the rudder, and open up the world map.
Press and hold X (PlayStation 4 controls) while you're cruising along on a road and your horse will follow it automatically. You can nudge the control stick at any time to change course (handy when you come to a crossroads) and then let go to let horse auto-pilot take over again.
The last of these apply an assortment of different buffs depending on the monster they come from, but the other three are typically found in treasure chests or for sale by merchants. Prioritize getting yourself some new saddlebags, as there's a lot of loot to collect in The Witcher3 (see tip #1), and the more you can carry, the longer you can go before you need to start selling.
The Witcher3's quest tracking system isn't the best, so it's a good idea to learn what the in-game map and journal can and can't do as quickly as you can. It's possible to place custom markers on the map wherever you like, but the in-game GPS-style system only traces a path to whichever quest destination you have highlighted.
For fans of alchemy, it's possible to brew up an assortment of potions, oils, and other substances that help Gerald in a number of ways. There are healing potions, elixirs that let you see in the dark, oils you can coat your blade with to increase damage output and quite a bit more.
Once an alchemical formula's been produced, Gerald automatically Hebrews more using existing materials whenever he meditates. It's possible to ignore alchemy for much of the game, but it's a more technical approach with wilder cost/benefit swings as you learn to harness it.
Gear crafting is functionally similar to alchemy in that each creation is made up of ingredients that you either purchase or collect as you adventure. Like the Survival Instinct general skill, which gives you an immediate 500-point boost to your Vitality stat (health).
No matter how you intend to get through the game, it's best to start upgrading inside the signs tree. Queen is Gerald's magical shield, and the second tier upgrade for it is an alternate sign that allows you to hold down the R2 button to create a sustained bubble shield that only chips away at your stamina (which governs magic) when it absorbs damage.
Gerald carts around two swords at all times: a steel one for taking on human foes and non-magical beast and a silver one for pretty much everything else. The game is thankfully smart enough to draw the right sword automatically based on the enemies arrayed in front of you... usually, so it's still a good idea to remember how steel and silver differ.
Effective combat comes down to a mix of dodging, rolling or parrying, then responding with a light/heavy attack as soon as you see an opening. You can block by holding down L2, but parrying is a timed challenge wherein you press L2 just as the enemy is swiping.
Just be sure to dodge or roll away after two or three chops, as most enemies recover and strike back after too many successive hits. Also be sure to read up on the more unusual enemies you encounter in the bestiary (accessible via “Glossary” in the game menus).
In addition to offering basic details about what the creature is, the bestiary entry also lists which signs and/or consumables are particularly effective against it. When Netflix dropped a fresh look at its upcoming series The Witcher on Monday, there was a collective sigh of relief that the show appeared to be shaping up much better than initial images from costume tests would imply.
In CD Project Red’s popular The Witcher video games, Gerald carries two swords: one forged of steel and one coated in silver. In the Witcher short stories and novels written by creator Andrew Minkowski, Gerald is typically not adventuring with a pair of swords on his person at all times.
That’s likely how we’ll see Henry Cavils’s take on Gerald store his silver sword, and how Polish actor Micha ebrowski dealt with his inventory in the previous adaptation of the books, The Hexes. Being engaged combat and having to run back to Roach to grab the silver sword would have been an annoyance, so it’s more of a gameplay contrivance than it is accurate to Minkowski’s original books.
In summary, it’s probably best to remember that both the video games and the Netflix series will differ in their adaptations of Minkowski’s books, and that creative decisions are made to fit the medium.
