In the game, Yrden represents the fifth element, whether one calls it Idea, Spirit or Magic. Thus it makes sense that its icon appears as an amalgamation of the icons for the rest of the Signs. It is a Sign Γκέραλτ makes by drawing a symbol on the ground or the floor. The witcher's skill with the sign is developed through the allocation of talents.
Mechanics[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]
- To use the Yrden sign, Right-click anywhere on the ground, and the trap will appear on that spot
- Endurance is used whenever the sign is cast, if the overall level is too low, Γκέραλτ will not be able to cast the sign.
- Tip: When enhanced, Yrden also causes damage to opponents and can poison and weaken them. It is best used in combination with other signs. It is also an excellent way to weaken a "quick" foe so that it's more difficult for it to avoid strong style attacks.

Yrden is a magical trap placed on the ground, which will wound and immobilize opponents. The sign's basic level allows you to place a single yrden sign on the ground.
After upgrading it, you'll be able to place up to three yrden signs at a time. Another, seperate upgrade, will also make multiple Yrden traps work in unison, creating a barrier that Γκέραλτ's enemies are unable to pass through.
Yrden is also used in the battle with the kayran to trap one tentacle at a time in order to sever it.
