You Can Now Be A Witcher In 'Skyrim' With New Playable Race


You Can Now Be A Witcher In 'Skyrim' With New Playable Race

A modder has merged The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Witcher in a conjunction of their worlds, letting players select Witcher as a race for the Dragonborn in the beloved RPG.


From its humble origins as a short story submitted to a fantasy magazine, The Witcher is now a household name thanks to the success of the games and the popular Netflix adaptation. Strangely enough, author Andrzej Sapkowski was stunned that CD Projekt RED's series of games did so well. "I didn't believe in their success. But who could foresee their success? I couldn't," he said in an interview with Eurogamer.

I mean. You don't have to have Witcher senses to know that a grimly gorgeous world where gruesome monsters stalk the lands would go down a treat with fans of The Elder Scrolls, The Lord Of The Rings, Dragon Age and so on. Anyway, this mod allows you to take on Tamriel as a Witcher, and it's accurate to the descriptions of the books to boot.

Check out our compilation of epic wins and the most lowly of fails in Skyrim right here! They'll sing songs about these happenstances, for sure.



This sounds perfect for the people who sit down to play Skyrim and think, "I wish I was playing The Witcher instead," and vice versa. Modder RobA ensured that Witchers regenerate stamina, health, and magica two to three times quicker than other races in Skyrim to reflect the fact that Witchers are hardier than humans on the Continent. Plus, unarmed combat damage is three times stronger so watch how you go with your knife and fork at dinner time.

Witchers are also able to use Igni and Aard and they benefit from immunity to all diseases and 50% resistance to frost, fire, magic and shock. Finally, the new stackable power called "Endomorphisis" increases movement speed and RobA advises players start out on a high difficulty level so that the game is challenging enough.


Another mod, A Witcher's Adventure, dovetails conveniently with this mod by adding potions, oils, ingredients, materials, skills, monsters and more from The Witcher. Honestly, the creativity and commitment of modders never fails to astound me.
