Then I checked my quest journal & seen my level 4 Geralt was on a level 33 quest. Ouch!
Yeah I’m loving the miss-matched fights everywhere. I was exploring and stumbled upon a Basilisk (or something with a similar name that could fly) while I was only level 5. I battled it and managed to stay alive for at least two minutes before a miss-timed quen sign left me open to a one shot kill.
In all the time I did manage to stay up, I might have reduced his hit points by maybe 5% lol. Though I suspect he was regenerating his hit points faster than I could keep them going in a downward direction. Something to look forward to in the future when/if I find a contract for him.
