Permissions and credits
This mod changes all the bonuses of the Witcher gear swords to either vastly improve them or slightly change them. All tiers have been reworked to be consistent. Changes have been made to both normal game and new game plus. All documented changes are listed here on my spreadsheet, along with the vanilla counterparts to compare. 

I initially wanted to only change the Wolf set of swords because, in my opinion, they seemed the most underwhelming set compared to sets such as Ursine (Bear) or Viper Venomous. However, after looking at the other schools' swords to compare how I should change the bonuses, almost all of them had some sort of shenanigans going on. Therefore, I had to change practically every school's set accordingly.

Requirements:
The DLC with the Wolf gear, Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine are required for this mod to function properly.

Installation:
Install this mod with a mod manager of your choice. I'd recommend The Witcher 3 Mod Manager and Script Merger to easily organize all your settings and mods while also fix any conflicts. Otherwise, the mod can be easily placed in the "Mods" folder of your Witcher 3 directory. If you are new to modding, I would advise following the tutorials listed from the descriptions of both the mod manager and script merger. 

Updates:
1.1 - 8/05/2020: Fixed the discrepancy between my documented change and the mod of the dismember stat on the NG+ Bear steel sword (was 20%, now 22%).

Incompatibilities:
Any mod that alters the Witcher sword bonuses will obviously conflict with this mod. However, no other mod to my knowledge will be an issue. There can be mild incompatibilities with Viper Gear Tier Expansion but it's nothing script merger can't handle. As a side note, this mod works incredibly well with Witcher Gear Scaling with your Level. 

Uninstallation:
Simply uninstall the mod from your mod manager or delete the folder from your "Mods" folder.

How to update:
Uninstall the previous version, and repackage the XML files via script merger with your current mod setup (script merger may crash during this process, but not to worry, this is normal). Relaunch script merger if it crashed and install the new version of the mod. Fix any necessary conflicts should they arise.
