Overwhelmed me at the beginning and was afraid to leave White Orchard lol
They did an update half way through my game which simplified the menu - a lot easier to make potions etc.
I would leave Skellige until you have done a large part of Velen - need to rank up first.
Handy Hint - get used to looking at the bestiary menu when coming up to a lair or enemy.
Also how good is Gwent - spent hours just playing that.
