What are the best early-game builds in Witcher 3?

The best build for Witcher 3 early game will depend on your playstyle. You can base your starter build around what attack speed you like the most and what armor category you feel the most comfortable with. From this point, you can progress further with your build.

Signs build for the early game in Witcher 3

This build weakens the armor on your opponents, which makes them more susceptible to your attacks. We are maxing out Melt Armor and Exploding Shield Signs and increasing Survival Instinct, Rage Management, and Gourment for General skills. This will allow you to forget about your stamina when you use Igni and Quen.
