Mutations are another new addition in The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine. These abilities are not unlocked from the start of the expansion and must be acquired by finding Dr. Moreau’s secret laboratory found inside Valley of the Nine as a part of Turn and Face the Strange optional quest.

You cannot access this quest unless you receive a letter from Yennefer. This letter will tell Geralt everything about Dr. Moreau’s secret laboratory. Once found, Geralt will need to complete Turn and Face the Strange in order to gain access to Blood and Wine Mutations.

The Witcher 3 – Blood and Wine Mutations Guide

Our Blood and Wine Mutations Guide details everything that you need to know about Mutations in the game.

One important thing that you need to know about Mutations is that you can only have one active at any given time – so choose the one which fits your playstyle. Moreover, high level mutations are unlocked once you have acquired the low level ones.

You start the Mutation Tree with Strengthened Synapses which basically improves research related to other mutations. Moreover, each mutation in the game has a cost e.g. 2 Skill Points and 2 Greater Green Mutagens.
