Witcher 3: how to defeat werewolves and stop their health regen ability
When a werewolf stops fighting you and gives off a prolonged howl while throwing its head back, it's likely starting to regenerate health. Werewolves are capable of doing this at a frightening rate, restoring their whole health bar in a matter of moments and undoing all your attempts to kill them. For those who are unprepared, fighting these monsters can feel futile as they revert back to full health in an instant.
Fortunately there's ways around this, and the main one is Moon Dust, a bomb that can be found and crafted that stops anything it hits from activating certain abilities - like health regeneration! Moon Dust requires both a set of ingredients with which to build it, and a formula for putting it together. The formula can be got from numerous places, but the easiest is to buy it at the Herbalist's Hut, found a little way to the North-East of Oxenfurt for crowns.

The two ingredients you'll need for a basic version of the Moon Dust are two bottles of quicksilver solution and a single dose of saltpeter. Quicksilver solutions is a little tricky to find, occasionally sold by traders at random, but can be reliably bought from the Pellar, located in the forests at the North-West of Blackbough.
Saltpeter is easier, sold by most alchemists. It can also be obtained as part of the Devil by the Well quest, found at the White Orchard notice board.
However you get both ingredients, simply go into the alchemy menu and select the Moon Dust formula to craft two bombs that recharge when you meditate. You can as these to your item slot through your inventory.
From that point on, when you see a werewolf preparing to howl and heal, throw a Moon Dust bomb at it and it'll temporarily be stopped from regaining health. Aside from Moon Dust, there are numerous tactics you can use to bring down these monsters, both in how you fight and what you should use. We'll go over them here:.
