Not sure how difficult DM really is but I had the idea of using a signs/alchemy hybrid build. I don’t know how optimal this is for DM but it seemed like an interesting and different play style I wanted to try, so if anyone can offer any pointers such as different skills and things I need to be on the look out for that would be greatly appreciated.

Fresh start

My suggestion is that you should play on Blood and broken bones instead and do a DM run on ng+.
DM is a grind, the amount of damage the opponents can take is ridiculous and annoying

Okay I’ll do that then. I’m thinking of only speccing into a couple of signs, so I don’t spread myself too thin. I’ve seen people say that it’s better to pick either Aard or Igni but not both?

Not sure. I always go with Sword/Alchemy builds

100% agree with this. But if you must then skip signs. Use fast attack and alchemy.

You can also abuse horse combat in the early stages.
Full gallop, time your swings. Can take out most things in two attacks.

Only downside I found with this strategy is with mob enemies, like the sewer rat swarms. They caused my high-level Geralt no end of problems in DM NG+. Figured it out eventually, but it was not much fun.
None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me!

Thats because of level scaling. You don't have to have that on for a DM run even on NG+.
