The Witcher (PC) Edit

Place of Power

In the game, Places of Power are (nearly) invisible spots where magic is concentrated. They are not Circles of Elements. Unlike those, Places of Power are practically invisible until Geralt approaches them. There is an audible roaring sound when he gets close enough to them which is also a clue to finding them. And finally, if the witcher medallion is set to detect magic, it will vibrate near the Places of Power.

Marker Place of Power These places of power are indicated on maps with a blue dot.

Rituals Edit

In these spots, depending on how talents have been allocated, Geralt can perform different rituals:

Effect Pop2 Ritual of Magic All Signs' intensity increased by 100% for 5 hours.
Effect Pop3 Ritual of Purification Rids the body of Toxicity and intoxication, it has similar effect as using a White Honey potion, i.e. nullifying any current potion effects in addition to detoxification. However, in contradiction to the White Honey, it does not nullify effects gained from additional substances or the Cat potion.
Effect Pop1 Ritual of Life Regeneration speed increased, just like a Swallow potion, for 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Geralt can perform the Ritual of Magic by default. The other two rituals require higher level Intelligence upgrades before they can be performed.

Mechanics Edit

  • Left-click on the blue light source to activate a Place of Power.

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt they are back as in first game and will grant the Geralt of Rivia a Skill Point if their locations are found and then activated. It is important to find these as there are a limited number of Skill Points in the game. Each Place of Power is tied to one of the 5 Signs and will increase that Sign's intensity when drawn from.
