What do Oils Do?

Oils are a consumable item in The Witcher: Monster Slayer. They can be used to give you a buff as you head into battle with one of the game’s many different ferocious creatures.

How to Craft Oils in The Witcher: Monster Slayer

The first thing you need to do when crafting oils is to load up your main menu with the button in the bottom-middle of your screen. From there, select Inventory and then you should land on the Crafting page. You can then select the crafting device.

From there, select oils along the top and craft the ones required, providing you have the items needed. If you don’t, it’s a case of slaying monsters until you do.

How to Apply Oils in The Witcher: Monster Slayer

Oils can be applied before heading into combat with a monster.

After you click a monster you wish to engage with, a screen will pop up, allowing you to populate a range of different slots.

At this point, you can click the + button in the oil slot, select your oil, press the tick and you’re away!
