Backstory

The backstory of Yennefer reads as following – “Always accompanied by the scent of lilac and gooseberries and dressed in black and white, Yennefer of Vengerberg is famous for her beauty and power. The raven-haired sorceress has made a name for herself as one of the most skilled and ambitious mages of her time. Member of the Supreme Council of Sorcerers and advisor to kings, yet always walking a path of her own choosing, Yennefer played an important role in the fate of the Northern Kingdoms. She first met Geralt of Rivia in the town of Rinde where the two had a run-in with a mighty Djinn. On that fateful day their destinies intertwined forever after the Djinn granted Geralt’s last wish. Several years later, Yennefer took it upon herself to teach the witcher’s adoptive daughter, princess Cirilla of Cintra, the basics of the art of magic and started to treat the girl as her own. She used all her powers to protect Ciri from those who wanted to hurt her.”

Tips for Using Yennefer

  • Players should preferably use Yennefer along with Geralt as an ally in the team to maximize her own usage while also maximizing the damage that Geralt deals to enemies. Her passive skill can easily threaten opener teams in PvP game modes but the rest of her skills seem lackluster. Her 3rd skill is one of the best shielding abilities like Lucius. A magical barrier on the side of enemies remains to be one of the best strategies for assassins and warriors who like to go deep inside enemy territory. Naturally, you wouldn’t want to pair her with ranged heroes much or simply heroes that do not go to the enemy’s side.
  • Yennefer is clearly made out for PvP game modes. Her ultimate ability “Frontline Tactics” can disrupt the momentum of enemies as she jumps into the most crowded areas of the battle and imprisons all enemies caught in the projectile for 3 seconds. This opens up room for your targeted heroes to either survive by getting healer/buffed/protected or move out of the aggro range of enemies.
