I'm currently replaying Witcher 3. I've done one playthrough before, but haven't played either of the expansion packs before. I was wondering just how 'absolute' the recommendations are (level 30+ each) . Right now I've confirmed Ciri is in neither of the 3 areas and am at level 20+
I've read that the expansion packs give you certain bonuses, like Gwent cards and mutagens or something, so I'd like to get the most out of those. I also wouldn't mind experiencing something fresh and new, rather than most quests I've already been through once.
So, my question is at what point in the story or at what level should I start which DLC? Spoilers for the main story are fine, but please don't mention anything of HoS or BaW.
