How to Fight Nekkers

How to Fight

The best way to deal with Nekkers is to use different means to damage multiple enemies at once. You can do this by casting the Aard Sign to knock down multiple Nekkers or by throwing bombs like the Grapeshot Bomb to damage them or the Northern Wind Bomb to freeze multiple enemies at once.

A very good skill when dealing with Nekkers is the Whirl. While this is active, they will still keep charging at you and you will be able to kill them while gaining more adrenaline for the Whirl skill.

What Preparations to Make?

You should use your Silver Sword and coat it with Ogroid oil to deal bonus damage to them.

Special Sign Effects

  • Aard - If you have high enough Sign Intensity, they can get knocked down and you can instant-kill them.
  • Yrden - The Yrden Sign significantly slows down their movements and attacks.
  • Axii - This will stun them for a good duration or turn them into allies if you have the Puppet or Domination skills.
