The New Game+ on Witcher 3 allows you to restart the game at the beginning of the story while retaining your abilities, gold, and equipment. However, items like Gwent Cards, Diagrams, Books, and Quest items will disappear as soon as you start the New Game+. Keep in mind that you are going to start all over, this means that you will also lose all of the Map Exploration, Beastiary, and Character Entries in your Glossary.

Also, if you are playing a New Game+. The difficulty of the enemies will slightly raise but will be a bit more rewarding for the player because of the better equipment drops. New Game+ also unlocks a new set of witcher gears with better stats and added the word Legendary at the beginning of the name.
