The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt PS4 PlayStation 4 Places of Power Locations Guide

By now you've probably read our monstrous guide on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's various skills. We're going to assume, then, that you've got a good idea of how you want to upgrade your character – but you're going to need some Ability Points to get going. You'll nab these when you level up, but seeing as this isn't the type of title where you can effectively grind, the Places of Power will become your friend. There are 15 of these located throughout the game, and each is marked with one of your magic signs, which they'll temporarily boost to boot. Quick tip: if you have all five of your signs powered up at once, you'll unlock a Trophy.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PS4 Guides

Where are the Places of Power in White Orchard?

  • Nearest Signpost: Mill
    Magic Sign: Igni
    Head north from your starting position until you reach a cemetery. You'll spot an obelisk-type structure which is the Place of Power. Beware, though, as there's a wraith that lurks in this location.
  • Nearest Signpost: Mill
    Magic Sign: Aard
    Retrace your steps to the previous Place of Power, but keep heading north until you find the next monument in the centre of the forest area. There's a ghoul nest nearby, so good luck.
  • Nearest Signpost: Cackler Bridge
    Magic Sign: Quen
    You need to travel north-east from your starting position in order to nab this one. There are ghouls in the area, so give them a good licking before claiming your prize.
  • Nearest Signpost: Abandoned Village
    Magic Sign: Yrden
    From your starting position, go east off the beaten path and then travel south shortly before reaching a road. You'll come up against a bear here, but do the bare necessities by bludgeoning it in the head.
  • Nearest Signpost: Sawmill
    Magic Sign: Axii
    From your location follow the road north. As it begins to curve to the left, travel into the wilderness to the east and kill the wraith that awaits you.

Where are the Places of Power in No Man's Land?

  • Nearest Signpost: Elector's Square
    Magic Sign: Igni
    From your starting position, move to the north-east of this area. There are no monsters to be aware of, but you will probably want to avoid getting into a bust-up with guards.
  • Nearest Signpost: Frischlow
    Magic Sign: Aard
    Head down into the marshes in the south. There will be fairly high-level wraiths in this area, so you may want to save this one until later if you're not feeling especially tough. Of course, Geralt scoffs at the very idea of danger.
  • Nearest Signpost: Lornruk
    Magic Sign: Quen
    Look for the broken bridge around this area. You'll find the Place of Power on the beach at the base of structure, but beware of drowners.
  • Nearest Signpost: Downwarren
    Magic Sign: Yrden
    You should be able to spot this Place of Power atop a mountain peak. Fight the controls to reach the top, and reap your rewards.
  • Nearest Signpost: Alness
    Magic Sign: Axii
    Travel south-east from your starting position, and scour a hill for the Place of Power. Climb it from the north, and this one is yours.

Where are the Places of Power in Skellige?

  • Nearest Signpost: Svorlag
    Magic Sign: Igni
    Head north-west from the village and climb up a mountain that overlooks it. You'll find the Place of Power perched atop it.
  • Nearest Signpost: Gedyneith
    Magic Sign: Aard
    Travel directly east, toward the road north of Redgill. You're looking for a dilapidated brick structure, which is guarded by a cyclops. Be a love and prod it in the eye.
  • Nearest Signpost: Yngvar's Fang
    Magic Sign: Quen
    Head directly south from your starting location, and find the outlook overlooking Urialla Harbour. There are trolls and all sorts here – and not those of the keyboard warrior kind.
  • Nearest Signpost: Harviken
    Magic Sign: Yrden
    Move west, before taking the road north after the Rabid Rock Troll's Cave. There are white wolves and endrega loitering around this area to test you, so give them a good stab with your trusty sword.
  • Nearest Signpost: Fornhala
    Magic Sign: Axii
    Travel south of the abandoned village of Fornhala and you'll find this among some rocks by the side of the road.
