The Witcher 3 – How to Get Ability Points

Ability points can be earned by finding places of power and leveling up.

Ability points in The Witcher 3 allow you to customize your character with a number of different skills.  These ability points don’t come around that often if you don’t actively seek them out as you’ll need to wait until you level up to get them.  So there are a couple of different ways to get Ability Points in the Witcher 3.

How to Get Ability Points in The Witcher 3

First you’ll get an ability point each time you level up.  As we detailed in this guide, you need to complete as many activities as possible to level up.  Kill enemies and completing quests will be the fast track to earning XP and more ability points, but this isn’t the only way to get them.

Seek out Places of Power Locations

You can also track down Places of Power which Geralt can interact with to get an ability point each time you find one.  Finding these places of power will allow you to get ability points the fastest.  Some places of power are easily labeled on the map, but some will need to be tracked down through exploration.

Once you get ability points they can be used to purchase new abilities or upgrade your existing ones.
