Get creative in The Witcher Cosplay Competition!

Without a doubt, The Witcher has always had the most talented community out there. Each month you guys send us tons of great fan art, musical tracks, fanfics and stuff so amazing that we sometimes decide to hang it on the walls here in the studio. The time has come to give you a chance to create something really amazing and get rewarded for your hard work. Ladies and Gents, ready your inner seamsters and seamstresses–The Witcher Cosplay Contest is here.

The objective is simple–cosplay one of the characters from the Witcher universe and make us bow in recognition of your amazing skill and/or idea. If this is your first time cosplaying a character from a game, don’t worry–even if you think you don’t have what it takes, we might think you do. Fun comes first!
What we’ll be looking at:

– Likeness to character
– Craftsmanship
– Presentation (i.e. how you look in the costume or how your photographs present it)
– Wow factor (overall impact of the costume, i.e. how low did our jaws drop)
– Originality

Who will be looking at it:
We’ve invited professional cosplayers to help us pick the winners.
Shappi,

Sorry my bad wrong game! I was talking about TW1.

First you need to meditate, and pick alchemy. You will need to have ingredients, and the formulae for potions to be able to create one.

You need to have an alcohol source, and ingredients. If you are still in the prologue, wait till you reach chapter 1 to experiment.
I haven't played TW2 in a while, but I don't remember needing alcohol.

You will need to have the Formula for the Cat potion. I believe that when you start the game, you already have it. Afterwards you will need to gather the needed ingredients. You can get ingredients by killing monsters and looting their corpses, or by herbalism. There are also lot's of crates containing ingredients. When you have all the ingredients and the formula, you can click on the Formula in the Alchemy Tab during meditation, and the potion will be created, if you decide so.

Red points are somewhat of a "thank you" system.

Still dont get it
At least tell, Difference between herbs & ingredients?

Difference between herbs & ingredients?
Both herbs and monster parts, contain alchemy ingredients. Some might contain the same ingredient. These ingredients combined in the correct way, displayed by Potion Formulae, create the Potions.

how to combine,
there is no "combine" option or "button" as u told.
again wht is monster parts?
i mailed this same question to "media@cdprojektred.com" but there is no reply
Max-Tac Posts: 2141 Joined: 2011-02-16
Monsters drop monster parts, that you can loot. Herbs can also be found in the environment, or in crates. Once you have enough Herbs and Monster Parts, you can create potions. You will have to Meditate, click on Alchemy, and afterwards click on the formula for the potion that you wish to create. This action will automatically place the ingredients where they should be, and you will have to press Enter to create the potion.

The potion folmula you have selected is for the potion "Rook", as you can see on the top left of your screen. You can choose to create other potions by clicking on other formulae.

For Rook, only three substances are necessary, you can see what these ingredients are by the little round Icon with the sign in the middle (x, < , >). That is why the other two positions are empty. For more complicated potions these slots will fill up automatically.

To create the potion, you have to click on the create button underneath.

You can also change the ingredients used to create the potion, by replacing them with another ingredient that contains the same substance. For example if you do not want to use your "Diamond Dust" you can replace it with another ingredient, by clicking on the circle with the "x" symbol on the top right of your screen, and see what other alternatives you have.

Maybe alchemy ingredients that are found throughout the world, (Herbalism, Monster Parts, Containers) contain alchemy substances. If you open your Inventory you can see what substances, each ingredient contains.

still dont get it, why cant u post a pic how ur doing potions.
pls pls post a pic like me.
i am asking while other two positions are empty, why create button came so early, without filling two holes( i mean ingredients)?
and also tell how many ingredients are required for "ROOK" potion: 5 or 3?
i want ingredients of vitrol potion, where can i get it?
how can i change the ingredients, i cant able to move ingredients?

The slots are empty because that potion only needs three ingredients.

Ganesh - try following this video starting at 7 minutes, it talks you through it. And yes, this is the PC version.

If you click on the recipe at the left of the screen, it will try to tell you what ingredients to use,
I think you need to experiment a bit in the game. Go out and pick more flowers, then try meditating and creating potions again. It's a little difficult for anyone to explain all of these details through the forum.
