This game has so much flavor.
Do I need to get too far in to the crafting stuff? I'm just using weapons and armor that I've picked up randomly, doesn't seem like anything amazing. I've crafted a few bombs but haven't had to use them much. I feel like I'll eventually come to grips with how much there is to craft but right now I feel kind of like I did in Skyrim - pick all the plants and eventually I'll make something OP with them.
Generally, (and this is one of my annoyances with the game) the only gear you want to craft are the witcher treasure hunt gears. They are simply better than other stuff. When you see a vendor selling treasure hunt maps, buy them
Well, bombs and potions are decently useful too.
