Witcher 3, The - Wild Hunt Discussion

I just finished 2 playthrus and started a NG+ at level 41 so I'm off to Kaer Trolde for the Skellige Undvik Armor Set as that's the only place to get it and you have to be level 41. I'm also going to get Roach some of the Skellige Horse Armor. Both are shown here:
I like wearing those Ursine armors for the look. But if I'm getting into a pretty good scrap I like wearing the Mastercrafted Feline armor or sometimes the Mastercrafted Griffin. I just like their options better.
Not sure on those swords. I have quite a few that look similar but I settled on using the Mastercrafted Griffin Silver and Steel swords. They have blades that glow yellow-gold when using them and look absolutely beautiful plus I like the options.
Now that I started NG+ I see a few swords I had but couldn't use yet have even higher levels like 61 and 63. They have huge damage numbers but they'll have to wait till I get there so I stuffed them into the storage chests with all the other gear.
Which playthru are you on now? Have you gone swimming with the Whales yet? What a rush that was the first time.

third playthrough, on NG+. Mastercrafted ursine yes looks identical, I just feels it's been changed heavily from that screenshot, which saddens me, I wanted the set ever since they showed it for pre-order. But gotta get what I gotta get, I'm level 54 myself. I really like NG+ it makes game difficult, maxed out difficulty too xD my ass is getting handed to me half the time, after starting the griffin almost ripped me a new one
A pack of DOGS.
So I changed my build and went with more Quen. I switched to a Great Sun Armor that has +50% Quen, added some Quen to my Character tree and added casting Quen to a Macro on one of the mouse buttons. Geralt and Vesemir killed the Griffin and I barely took any damage at all.
Big, badass level 41 Witcher, decked out in the best Mastercrafted gear around. Killed by the Wild Litter. SMH.
EDIT: and for you element since you like griffin set www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/457/? to make it look cooler(if you agree) also I looked at griffin set stats, they look VERY similar to ursine maybe you can explain to me what you feel the differences are?

Well, for me, the first listed option is the most relevant because they directly affect Geralt's DPS #'s and overall Sign Intensity percentage. Those options being Adrenaline points, Sign Intensity or Attack Power.
Now assuming all four armors have the same three optional Greater Glyphs equipped such as the 10% Igni or Aard for example, the Griffin which has a 20% base Sign Intensity, has a 20% higher overall Sign Intensity % than the other three armors as listed below Geralt.
BUT.... When it comes to the DPS for the Silver and Steel Swords, the best is the Feline armor due to its base 20% Attack Power advantage. I get 151 more points for Steel and 208 more points for Silver wearing the Feline versus the other three.
The Wolven and Ursine armors both have a base 20% Adrenaline point gain instead of Attack or Sign Intensity.
I could make a case for the Adrenaline points were I not using the trainer. I have a Macro assigned to a mouse button that adds AP, Health, Stamina and Quen every time I press it.
That said, I'm not currently always using any of them in fights, not the armor nor the swords. I've bumped into others that seem to help a bit more than the MC Witcher Gear on this NG+ playthru. If I'm getting blasted (which is often in NG+) I'll go to that Great Sun armor with the 50% Quen.
My dilemna is that for some reason, CDPR chose to make the best looking armor in the game the Ursine armor and not the Wolven which, of course, Geralt is from. He's from school of the Wolf which has my least favorite armor of the four main 'Witcher Gear' armors. That makes no sense to me. I wish the Ursine was the Wolven for Geralt's school. I'd much rather walk around in that Ursine armor than anything else. It just looks way better.
I'm sure others maybe have different opinions but that's kinda how I see it. In the end, maybe the numbers really matter ... maybe not so much. CDPR says they do but sometimes I wonder. Especially after getting my arse handed to me by a handful of drunk bandits or a pack of Dogs - The Wild Litter.
@Sapphire Sorry for such a long post. It was a lot worse before I edited it.
