So i brought the GOTY edition and Im loving it so far, but one i noticed was that all my quests and witcher contracts would show up in my quests screen while I was in white orchard but when Im at Velen now and i accept witcher contracts, they don't seem to be showing up on my quests screen. Thanks for the help!

They'll be in a section called Witcher Contracts. Under the quest menu there are Primary Quests, then Secondary, then Witcher Contracts, then Treasure Hunts if I remember that right. And just so you know not every post on the board is a quest if you feel like you're missing some or something.

ahh, i just accepted all of them. I accepted one though, that was asking for an escort somewhere which sounded like one but I guess it wasn't. btw is the posts on the notice board all the same no matter what town you're in or are they different?

Different in every town. Go to every single one.

Ahhh i see, i see White Orchard was a pretty friendly place to start because this next part feels much bigger and a bit overwhelming. Any tips as to what to do first? I ve barely hit level 5 and even the story quests are recommending level 6s and most POIs I'm checking out are wayyy to high level for me so I'm not sure what my next steps should be.

White Orchard is the extended tutorial pretty much. It's a small sample size of the real world.

As for what to do, do what you like. Once you get the hang of combat somewhat, don't sweat doing quests that are ~5 or so levels above you. Those are just recommendations; not requirements. And you'll net more xp for those as well.

When I started, I wandered around and got beat down by high level mobs. Kind of put me off the game a bit. I came here and was told by everyone to just stick to the main quest. So I did. 300+ hours later, here we are.

Do you though. Search the board for "new player advice" or a couple variations thereof, and they'll be plenty of threads to pop up to go through. The bulk of your xp will come from main quests, side quests, and hunts. There's no farming mobs for xp, so don't bother.

Stick around and ask questions. This is a good board. Good luck on the Path.

yea, i feel like everything on the maps beating me down right now I'm pretty determined to stick it through, I usually don't play these type of games, I tried Dragon Age Inquisition earlier but i couldn't get into it at all. These games feel pretty overwhelming for people thats never played it before.

This was my first Witcher game. It looks like a big open world, and it is; you're just not meant to go everywhere from jump. Do the main quest to start off. It'll hand hold you a little bit (maybe steer is a better word) but you'll gain levels and crowns. Take on quests and hunts in your range. That'll net you levels and crowns.

Striking out on your own to explore the wild blue yonder at level five will only result in beat downs.

It's a very good game. The initial adhd test/learning curve can be frustrating, but it's worth it to push through. It took me a couple tries tbh. But there's a great many reasons why it won 100+ GOTYs: it's really, really good.

It will definitely get better. I've never played a Witcher game before this and when I first played it, I started the game on Death March. When I got out of White Orchard, I went to the Baron and followed that quest line first. I was level 5 and the quest was at recommended level 6. I went in with no preparation and I thought, it shouldn't be that hard right? Boy, was I in for a surprise. The consecutive Wraith fights pawned me over and over and it took me hours and a lot of patience just to get past it. I suggest finding the witch first as that is the easier story quest.

Stick with it. This game is very enjoyable and is worth taking your time with. Dont feel discouraged if higher level enemies are beating you. Run away til you gain levels and come back.
Use everything in your arsenal. You will figure out what is best for your playstyle
