Water Hag Decoction is a Decoction in The Witcher 3: Wild HuntDecoctions are special mixtures that Geralt can imbibe to gain various buffs with more substantial effects compared to Potions, placing a greater emphasis on synergy with the player's build and playstyle. These effects have a much longer duration, but they also incur Decoction Toxicity which, unlike Potion Toxicity, does not dissipate over time and remains active for the duration of the Decoction, essentially holding a sizeable chunk of your Toxicity bar and limiting your ability to imbibe other concoctions. Decoctions can be used at any time from the Inventory. By default, they have only 1 charge each but can be replenished by Meditating for at least one hour while possessing one or more units of Alcohol.


Water Hag Decoction Attributes in The Witcher 3

The Water Hag Decoction has the following properties:

Damage dealt is increased when Vitality is at its maximum.
50% Increased damage

This Decoction's effect increases damage, not attack power. As such, it affects damage from any source, including that of Signs, Bombs and Vitality-depleting effects like Burning, Poison and Bleeding.

Water Hag Decoction's effects have a base duration of 1,800, but this can be improved with every single point invested in any Skills in the Alchemy Skill line. The Adaptation skill also specifically improves the duration of all Decoctions up to a maximum of 50%. However, this is generally not a worthwhile skill to invest in as you get more than enough of a duration boost just by investing in any Alchemy skills.
