    Even better. Her being the Emperor's daughter was a closely guarded secret. In fact he married her double, to get a better claim on the conquered lands that were legally hers.

    I haven't finished the novels on account of them boring me to fucking tears but isn't Ciri supposed to become an empress?

    There is no such thing as CDPR canon ending, the anniversary video was just nice thing for fans totally noncanon.

    blood of course
    speaking of blood, the answer is blood again. who else is going to have the elder blood AND look like Ciri? it's proof enough to sell the idea anyway.
    all that matters is that her father steps down and someone else with a legitimate claim assumes the throne. who cares what body was found? oops, a mistake. new headline says Ciri is actually alive.
    again, doesn't matter if she's sitting on the throne as a puppet. she can claim her own lands.
    so what? doesn't change the fact that the empress ending is objectively better.

    they're just cucking to the fans who just couldn't stand to see Geralt cry in the other ending.

    sure, the "best" ending would see Ciri living a hollow life as a monster-killing machine and probably dying a horrible death, but at least you didn't have to see man tears and Geralt, like the rest of you, never has to grow up.

    She doesn't want to be empress, what makes you think she'd be a good empress?

    she does if you pick the empress ending. she makes the choice herself. smh

    she also goes through training and doesn't just assume the role. this is covered in the epilogue at the villa.

    you could try going for that end and/or not just believing what a girl with daddy issues says.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if we get a Ciri game someday, since they said Geralt was done but The Witcher was not. In that case I'd expect the Ciri witcher ending would be canon, assuming it happens.

    so if most people are children and pick the ending that dooms Ciri to a violent and lonely life of hardship because muh feels, that makes it the correct option?

    regardless, I fixed it. Someone else has seen it, clearly. 82,000 of them at least.

    ffs, she's just voicing inner doubts and being playful.

    again, she chose this path. that's the one constant in both endings.

    3:45: "I told him I wish to be a good ruler, a strong ruler"

    "I wish to be"

    how much more clear do you need it?
    It's more about that people aren't willing to forasake romance options for this.

    Frankly, I don't see why Ciri needs to be a non-romance ending only and why she isn't there when Yen or Triss is.

    Ok I tried EE mod, started a new game to mess around in White Orchard and learn the new stuff. So far it seems GREAT, it fixes most of the problems I have with the vanilla game. In particular, removing leveling entirely is genius and feels like how the original design should have been. Though I must admit I find it amusing that the fix is basically turning Witcher 3 into Oblivion (ie make everything same level as player)... I guess the key difference is that there are NO levels, you dont get xp and level up, mobs therefore dont level up, its just skill training. Pretty interesting solution to the "open world" problem. But I wonder if it will still have the same endgame problem where you become to overpowered?

    Due to this static world level I think I could probably start the DLC right at the start of the game? Instead of starting a high level playthrough. The mod description does specifically say not to use an old save after installing. But then the DLC creatures could be to difficult if I have no skill buffs, potions/oils?

    Interesting. Did he give a reason as to why? I feel like it's more to keep people from getting frustrated rather than any technical issues, considering I've played it for 6 hours or so without issue.

    Nah, its generally pretty standard with overhaul mods that they say to do clean start, it probably is fine, maybe just some minor issues you wont notice. So you are playing through DLC now? I gotta say with this mod even doing the intro area is enjoyable.

    I've just been going around cleaning up monster contracts and sidequests left over from my OC playthrough. It's been very challenging and quite a blast, honestly. I don't think it's possible to become too overpowered with this mod because of how deadly combat can be without utilizing your own skill as a player. Skill progression makes it noticeably more manageable and gives you some nice tricks to use, but even with my carry-over skill points from my vanilla playthrough I can still very much so get slapped around. Obviously there is a huge emphasis on equipment progression, which is great, because that's really where you start feeling that power coming through.

    I would actually much prefer a new Witcher game where Ciri is the Empress, some shit happens and Geralt (playable) with Yennefer go to Nilfgaard to help her. Shitload of politics, backstabbing and some monster/human killing + exploration of Nilfgaard. That would be my jam.

    Just give me the tight-knit, grounded high fantasy of TW2 or Blood & Wine, as opposed to the bloated, mundane trudge of doing the day-job in TW3.

    Let Geralt have some deserved rest I say. I for one would love CDPR to go back to the conjuction time, showing what happened and how witchers began.

    How good or bad that would be is rather irrelevant though, since they directly said Geralt is done and TW3 very much reinforces that.
