Is IGNI damage on The Witcher 2 A.O.K.E.E affected if you equip a Steel Sword or a silver sword in terms that you attack monsters or humanoids, or should you just draw the weapon that has the most +Sign damage?

Pretty sure its just which one has more +Sign damage. I always could kill things faster with my +sign damage sword with signs. That's how it seemed when I played, anyways. I'm curious to know how :-) – kevlar1818 Aug 1 '12 at 19:50
to be honest, i asked rashly, you have a nice combat log at the witcher 2 where i checked everything out, and its clear that the dmg on signs is only based on sign damage and intensity. – Dino Aug 2 '12 at 1:05
I'd answer your own question then. – kevlar1818 Aug 2 '12 at 14:39

The main diffence between steel and silver sword is that the silver sword deals extra physical damage on monsters.

Against monster: silver sword basic damage + monster bonus damage > steel sword basic damage
Against humanoids: steel basic damage > silver basic damage (no monster bonus damage)

The effect/power of the signs are unaffected by the weapons you are currently holding in your hands. You'll get it's passive boosts just by equipping it.

The signs can be enhanced by leveling up or some specific equipment that has +sign.
