Romance is an essential aspect of the experience offered by The Witcher 3, even if you’re only interested in Geralt’s unfettered love of killing monsters and solving all manner of mysteries.
If you do decide to take a long enough break from Gwent to pursue the affections of a real person, the main choice you’ll face is between Yennefer of Vengerberg and Triss Merigold, with many players harbouring strong feelings towards one or the other.
For Triss stans who want to maximise the amount of time they can spend talking to the red-haired sorceress, a new mod might be exactly what you’re looking for.
New Witcher 3 Mod Caters To Those Who Prefer Triss To Yennefer
The mod in question is called “Triss replaces Yennefer (all outfits)” by modder mvreenv and it aims to do exactly what it says on the tin.
That’s right, left is right, up is down and Yennefer is Triss, with Merigold commandeering all of her fellow sorceresses' screen time and even changing outfits based on the situation in the exact same manner.
That said, some cutscenes will still show Yennefer, with modifying them being beyond modding capability.
However, you can minimise this effect by also downloading teiji25’s mod “Immersive Real-time Cutscenes”, which takes several main story cutscenes that are pre-rendered in the base game and re-creates them in real time, ensuring that characters aren’t stuck with their default appearance during these scenes.
You’ll mainly see it take effect around the story’s big, set-piece heavy missions surrounding the battle of Kaer Morhen and the final confrontation with the wild hunt in Skellige.
Naturally, mvreenv’s mod ensures Triss will definitely be present for these seismic events, possibly in two different forms, which could be the exact distraction you need to stop Eredin from getting his hands on Ciri.
Also, don’t fret if you’re a Yennefer stan looking for mods that’ll better suit your particular preference, mvreenv is also responsible for a couple of clothing based works, called “Black and White Skellige Tunic to match with Yennefer” and “Black and White Ornate Robe,” that’ll help you colour coordinate your outfits with her.
