How Do I Use Mutagens?

#1VodooPosted 4/26/2012 9:55:34 PM

I have a ton of mutagens but can't seem to use any. I'm in Flotsam and am just about to go with Zoltan to find Iorveth. I've done almost all the possible quests up to this point.

You need to "slot" them into talents, certain talents have little circles above em mostly ones near the end of the tree. Go to your character screen and pick one of those talents and you can use a mutagen on it.

It's recommended that you don't use lesser mutagens. Apparently on the PC there used to be builds dedicated to using Greater mutigens (via the Impregnation talent from the Alchemy tree) but they've since patched the game to make the Greater mutigens extremely rare. I think you're guaranteed to find 2 Greater vitality mutigens on the 2 Endrega queens (I did on 2 playthoughs), so I used those as well as the Madness mutigen that I found, which is also pretty rare. Other than that I didn't bother with them.

When you apply a mutagen make sure you don't use a crappy one because it is permanent. And if you don't have two points in impregnation don't even bother.

Strength, vitality, and critical mutagens are just as good as great ones.

I got a Lesser Enhancement Mutagen that is labeled "Epic".

Gives +1% to adrenaline when attacking.

Doesn't seem epic to me.

Epic waste?
