I still love the game but it does have some bugs (and design flaws that are damned close to bugs).
Inventory needs a Junk/Trinket tab. They do not show up on any other tab except the All tab…which means you have to sift through ALL of the crap you carry to sell that stuff. By the time I got to the area just after Flotsam I had 28 pounds of crap accumulated.
Alchemy: When making a potion you should be able to select a number to make instead of having to do them 1 at a time. And/or it should remember the ingredients you chose for that potion and make THAT as the starting ingredients for the next one. So annoying.
In the Claws of Madness quest is bugged.
If you have nekker eyes/hearts in your inventory and decide to fool the specter, it will force you to use THOSE even if you go buy pigs eyes/hearts. Either that or it's bugged and the pigs eyes/hearts don't deceive him like the guide that came with the game says they should. If the 2nd thing is the case then the guide is bugged
Troll Trouble quest (and therefore the Melitele Amulet quest) is bugged.
You can apparently only get the Troll's Head mounted on Sendler's wall if you do the Dice Poker chain up to unlocking the ability to play Sendler, but NOT playing him, THEN do the Troll Trouble quest up to being able to ask him about the head on his wall…THEN beating him at dice and choosing it as the reward. Friggin stupid and definitely needs to be fixed. I assume you can get the troll tongue needed for the cursed amulet you get from Newboy in the prologue. The only other way to get that tongue before leaving this area is by killing the drunk bridge troll…which kinda sucks.
Semi-spoiler, but not really. If you don't go into the Inn in Flotsam right after rescuing Zoltan & Dandilion it makes things wonky. I went and did aot of the non-combat flotsam quests before bothering to go into the Inn. When I finally did neither of them would talk to me and the Kayran attack took alot of messing around and doing other things to get it to trigger. So when they finally did talk the dialogue was out of order and out of place in relation to what I had already done around town. I kinda broke it. No quests were broken, but it was still pretty weird.
Only one random CTD on entering Loredo's estate at a certain time (after being able to go there with weapons & not talking to the guard). Not repeatable. Never had any other crashes.
I wish their main forums were up so I could post this there instead.
Oh and if you have an nvidia card definitely uninstall the two 3D Vision drivers. For some reason I got a big performance boost by doing that.
