Weapons in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are divided into two main types. They can be distinguished easily by whether they are Silver Swords and Steel Weapons. Steel Weapons are used for fighting humans, elves, and most creatures that are not considered to be monsters. Silver Swords on the other hand are almost exclusively used upon Creatures that are considered to be Monsters. Within the Witcher 3 most Weapons will be swords, however as was seen in other titles within the series there are rare weapons that are not swords. Witchers also use Ranged Weapons and Bolts.

 

There are 3 craftsman levels: "Amateur", "Journeyman" and "Master". Amateur and Journeyman levels are releativily easy to find. 

Only a select few craftmen are Master level and you must complete their questline to gain their services.
