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.
