All Bomb Formula of The Witcher 3

    While silver and steel swords are the best-known part of a wizard’s arsenal, no one can walk around without bombs. In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the player can create bombs through alchemy by following recipes he finds around the world.

    These bombs cause damage and/or area effects that make combat easier, either by disabling a monster’s ability or allowing the wizard to use one of his abilities more effectively. Other bombs can still be used to destroy the monsters’ nest and prevent them from propagating in a certain area.

    Whether as a combat tool or as sterilization of monsters, bombs are tools of great value and you, the player, will certainly want to know how to create each of them.

    After all, a wizard must always be prepared.
