Witcher 3:Blood and Wine - Aard Build Guide (Pop Goes the Bandit)

Here is my fun Aard 'Pop Goes the Bandit' Build using the Grandmaster Griffin gear, hope you guys like it and stay tuned for the next one, I am thinking I will do a bomb build using the Manticore set.

  • Danila

    "Not the most effective build" you can literally one shot any enemy that has a somewhat humanoid form, what are talking about

  • James Wadland

    Geralt, you were supposed to stop the White Frost, not bring it!I play a primary melee focused build, and when I do use signs it's either Quen or Axii, so seeing someone not using their swords hardly at all is pretty cool. In my next playthrough I might try to specialise into something specific, like signs or alchemy.Great video anyway. Maybe not the most effective method of killing, but certainly one of the most entertaining.

    why are you whispering?

  • Lake88

    Rage-management + Razor Focus + Griffin 3pc allows you to spam Aard 3 times right at the start of the fight. High chance of popping everyone.

  • TheYLS

    youve got a great voice, man. no homo. hehe. great explanation and detail to the build as well.

  • Rafał M

    consider getting increased mutagen effect, the bonus is very nice

  • Bao Minh

    why's my grandmaster Griffin gear only 21% sign

  • Nicolas Silva

    mutated aard is literally broken, the most played build in the game so far

  • gotzn0name

    how would this build fare against elementals like golems/gargoyles?

  • jorge arjona

    winter is coming build.

  • Chicken Mike

    THE ICEMAN'S CO...ah, I just couldn't help it LOL

  • Spoon Spoon

    too low, speak up man.

  • Jessica Malik

    do you use any mod for graphic? the water is awesome

  • sworddice

    does the 25% chance to freeze stack up with sword's freeze runestones?

  • Staun Shay

    but why would you want to do 200 damage with aard? any sword swing does more than that.

  • SirProfessorDukeMatthew Rules

    The first bandit you hit with aard if frozen and knocked down but he doesn't die instantly. Why is this?

  • TemplarKnights99

    Have you tried putting points in alchemy? Especially since it can boost your mutagens' bonus up to 3 times. Get rid of points in combat. Put some points in alchemy. Seriously, you'll be casting signs for days.

  • Michael

    Why doesn't my aard knock any one over or shatter them???? WTF!!! and it doesn't do any damage????

  • szoszi veled

    the insta-kill effect doesnt proc too often if u fight against green level enemies (its not even proc anymore if you fight vs red level/skull, or its just really rare). i created a similar build once with a bit of alchemy (3 decoctions and potions), but it wasnt too effective compared to other hybrid builds. i tried it on ng+ deathmarch at lvl93 with levelscaling on tho

  • Lamb Sauce Gamer

    Ur stanina regens SO FAST!? How?? !

  • Augustus Sinclair

    Are the floating body parts glitched or is that part of the 'freezing?'

  • spets21

    this looks like a fun build to play with. nice

  • SpečenýÉxpert

    Hey I have one question ... when you cast aard with Piercing Cold mutagen enchant on the enemies and you dont knock and freeze them, aard should deal 6000 dmg (in your case) no ? or I am wrong ? because it doesnt work I think ... see 3:42 ... sorry for my language :D

  • meaty cabbage

    it feels like a mouse is narrating ; - ;

  • peoplescan

    doesn't seem to work now maybe a glitch

  • Hail Hydra

    My build: aard and award sweep , with far reaching award and piercing cold. Lower level enemies I can insta kill by the mass, and others I just use award for freezing and slowdown. And who need igni?- award deals plenty damage! Axis and yrden? Piercing cold freezes or slows down any enemy. Quen?-use award and dodges to avoid any enemies. Aard op cunfirmmmed plz nerf

  • broadbandtogod

    ... whatIm doing this! Holy Heavens hahaha, awesome!

  • Hyperperion

    Is this plain Deathmarch or NG+ Deathmarch? Cause in NG+ Deathmarch I think enemies resist Aard more..

  • Sharath V

    My fight at the same base was when I was lvl 39.It was an epic fight for 1 hour more fun than this op build

  • Stay Prada

    How are you able to spam your signs like that?

  • dontbeshady411

    Take the blue skulls and put them so they can boost your blue mutagens and put the general skills in the middle
