Stealth probably isn’t the kind of gameplay tactic that first springs to mind when you think of The Witcher 3, with Geralt of Rivia generally being the kind of protagonist who prefers to charge at his enemies head-on with sword in hand.
However, if you’d prefer to play through the game in a similar manner to Skyrim’s ludicrously overpowered archers and assassins, that is, creeping around in a crouched stance while your knees begging for mercy in order to avoid certain fights and sneak up on foes, a new mod might help you do just that.
Get ready to whip out your wand and live happily in the knowledge that you aren’t giving any money to a certain author, because Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak has made its way to the continent.
The White Wolf Becomes the Transparent Wolf
The mod in question is called “Invisibility Cloak” by modder milckywayy and it makes the item in question available to buy from three different merchants.
To get your hands on it, you’ll want to head over to the residence of either Novigrad swordsmith Éibhear Hattori, Beauclair grandmaster Lazare Lafargue or the Ofieri merchant located at the windmill near Miller’s Lake.
Naturally, as the latter two are added to the game via the Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone expansions, you’ll need these DLCs installed to be able to buy the cloak from them.
Once you’ve acquired the cloak, which will set you back a small fortune at 10k Crowns, you’ll be able to turn invisible by equipping it, with the colour draining out of the world to match your new state, as the video below shows.
While in this state, usually hostile enemies won’t be able to spot you, allowing you to sneak up on the likes of bandit camps without alerting anyone until you’ve decided you’re ready to attack.
The cloak can also be equipped mid-combat, allowing you to slip away from battles that aren’t going as well as you anticipated, making it a pretty potent item to add to your arsenal.
Speaking of your arsenal, you might want to add more than just the cloak to it, with milckywayy having created a slew of other mods over the years which bring weapons from a host of other franchises into The Witcher 3.
So, pick your weapon of choice, install away and also make sure to follow us for more updates on the next Witcher game when we learn more about it.
