I did not know what that bar below stamina throughout my first playthrough. And ignored everything about it. I'm not really sure how i missed it.

      If you want a similar game, try playing Kingdom Come Deliverance, it's first person and not as smooth but it gives me the same vibes as the Witcher but a lot more realistic and hardcore
