I've started playing Witcher 2 again, streaming it for someone, and this time I'd like to make full use of my potions instead of defaulting to the basics. But the more advanced elixirs carry serious penalties, so it seems inadvisable to use them without the Cataylisis talent. Is there a trick to it? Or is it just a matter of predicting what I will and won't need?
