What are the best steel and silver swords in the game? I have a 300 damage silver sword and 260 damage steel one. If you know of any better swords, what level do you have to be and where are they found?

    This is really going to depend on what stats you value, unless you mean "What are the highest-damage swords in the game?". I am also unsure how much RNG goes into drops.

  • the best that I have come across so far are the fully upgraded Witcher school weapons, I am at level 36 and there are not a great deal of high levels quests that I have not completed, however as @Jeeva mentions there may be some better RNG gear available. Commented Jun 1, 2015 at 5:19
  • Yeah, the various bits of upgradable Witcher gear are generally held to be the best by a fair amount of damage. But, rng...

Dunno...for the most part, the various witcher school gear is amongst the best you can craft. They are typically over-spec'd as it is, probably usable well into your 40's. However, if you venture about and do monster contracts and explore ruins/ tunnels etc. you'll find higher level gear than even that of your master crafted witcher school gear. I can't remember the name, but I found one such sword in a vampire's crypt, I think. Far south of Midscope, in an abandoned village overrun by ghouls. Do the monster contract and there and you should get this sword as a drop and/ or in the nearby chest. It's one of those relic sword designs that has an "S" shape running the whole length of the blade, like waves...looks cool. Kind of like a Celtic design. It's a level 37 steel relic sword and does more base damage than my master craft witcher cat school steel sword, although, my Cat School has the best attributes. What I wonder, though, is if your level determines your loot. I have run through this game 3 times(story) and the last two times I was getting a pretty sweet looking level 27 relic sword that had knuckle guards and a serrated blade, from near the lighthouse that is south of Novigrad, on an island and in a serpent's nest. This last time through, I was very low level and didn't get that same sword and instead, got some other level 17 relic sword. So you might not get the sword I got from that crypt, until you are around 30.
