So im lvl 19 about to leave novigrad and go to skellinge. Could i instead go and complete the new gwent quest line in blood and wine dlc or should i wait untill i completed the base game to avoid some spoilers? Or can i just go and collect the new cards and then return to the base game?

the first fight in the DLC that you have to do might be a little hard for you but otherwise i cant think of any reason you couldnt do it.

You will be f***ed hard in the ass. Both DLC is for level 30+, see the mission with blue color (HoS) and red color (B&W), look at its level, if you just 5 levels below then you can do it, else prepare to get ploughed.

It’s better you play the DLC in stand alone mode, you will be in proper level.

Yeah there are a few fights before you can get to the Gwent quest, the cyclops can be one-shotted but most likely you'll be killed by the bandits in Stonecutter's settlement before you even get the chance to start.
Spoiler-wise you'll be fine but you'll get your ass kicked.
Besides, it's much more fun to just play B&W as intended instead of this nonsense of half jumping into a story just to do 1 quest or grab a certain item and then leaving.

The bandits you don't have to fight if you choose your conversation options with care.
However after the giant he will have to fight Scurvers which are tougher than regular Rotfiends.

And then there's the Bruxa which will absolutely tear you apart.

I don't want to be a smartass but you don't have to fight the bruxa.
You can get the Gwent quest before that.

Eh probably, I just don't like playing the game wrong.
