SIDEQUESTS - Velen

A Favor For A Friend
Recommended Level: 6
Location/ Obtained from: Returning to Keira Metz after completing sidequest - A towerful of mice

 

 

Objective: Find the ingredients from the missing transport using your witcher senses

 

When you arrive at the large yellow search area, you will likely run into a few drowners you will have to deal with before the area is clear for you to investigate. The key thing to look at is the wagon trail on the muddy path (which can be found next to the fast-travel sign). Follow them South along the muddy track to spot where they veer off the trail into the scrub.

 

At the end of the wagon trail, you'll find the remains of the wagon. Examine the puddle of blood next to it and follow it. You'll run into a rotfiend on the way that you'll need to dispatch before continuing. Continue following the trail until you reach the body of the unlucky merchant leaning against a nearby tree. Take the letter from his body and return to the remains of the wagon. Look underneath with your witcher senses to find a box which hold the items you are looking for.

 

Objective: Bring the ingredients to Keira

Objective: Race Keira to the meadow

Objective: Find Keira using your witcher senses

 

Fast travel back to the cottage and talk to Keira to trigger a long scene and spend a lovely evening with the sorceress (seriously, if you have trouble during this sequence, how did you get this far in the game?). In the morning, you'll have finished the quest and gotten a new one, the final one in this quest chain.

 

A Greedy God
Recommended Level: 7
Location/ Obtained from: Arguing peasants in ruins of building directly South of the Wastrel Manor signpost (SW of Crow's Perch)

 

 

Note: You require the Eye item that dispells illusions (obtained at the end of story quest 05 - Wandering in the dark) for this sidequest

 

Objective: Address the Allgod using the altar

 

After listening to the peasant's explanation, trundle over to the nearby altar to be rebuffed by the Allgod. Hmm, strangely good reception isn't it?

 

Objective: Find the Allgod using your witcher senses

 

After speaking to the Allgod, walk past the peasants behind the crumbling wall to see a rectangular area covered in broken rocks. Use the eye item to remove the illusion and reveal the steps leading down. At the bottom, you'll meet the Allgod, a corpulent demon who has been eating all the food left by the peasants. Anyone else reminded of Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers movies?

 

You can deal with the Allgod in a few ways, by talking him into accepting lesser offerings, threatening to attack him or just saying that you'll tell the peasants the truth about him. Resolve the situation the way you wish, take the loot strewn about the room and then leave the underground area.

 

Objective: Talk to the peasants

 

Return to the peasants and tell them you've talked to the Allgod. Here you can choose to tell them the truth or just let the Allgod continue on.

 

A Towerful Of Mice
Recommended Level: 6
Location/ Obtained from: After talking to Keira at the end of sidequest - An invitation from Keira Metz

 

 

Objective: Find a way to get to Fyke Isle

 

Now that you have the lamp, you'll need to head for the island. Examine the map of Velen to find the marker for the island, then look at the edges of the lake surrounding it for a boat icon. This is Keira's boat and you can use it to cross the water to the isle or simply swim across (or fast-travel there if you have already explored it).

 

Optional Objective: Use Keira's boat to reach Fyke Isle

 

Hop in the boat and sail it across the lake to the isle

 

Objective: Head towards the tower

 

Ahead of you, will be the stone tower. Cross the grounds and climb up the stairs to enter it, listening to Keira with your magic communicator.

 

Optional Objective: Use the magic lamp to find ghosts

 

As you explore the tower, you will find green distortions in the air that signify a spot you can use the magic lamp. Press RB to use the quest item and light up these spots to find out information on what happened in the tower and gain experience for each one you find.

 

Objective: Explore the tower

 

Despite the creepy atmosphere, there are no enemies here (just a ton of mice) so make your way up through the levels of the tower towards the top floors. Grab whatever loot you wish and examine the ghosts you wish until you get close to the top level. When you do, Keira will inform you of a laboratory at the top of the tower you will need to find.

 

Objective: Find the mage Alexander's laboratory

 

When you reach the top floor, you'll find it doesn't look much like a laboratory. Using your witcher senses on the floor, you will spot scrape marks on the ground showing a secret door. Pull both the nearby levers so they are facing down to open the secret door.

 

Objective: Use Keira's lamp to investigate Alexander's laboratory

 

In the corner of the hidden room, you'll find another distortion. Use your lamp to reveal the ghost waiting there to trigger a scene with the lady of the tower. During the discussion you will find out what happened to her and listen to her request for help. Observant players will have found the fresh corpse in the tower and already be suspicious of something being amiss, but the choice is yours.

 

Fine - Triggers option one path: Help Annabelle
Not sure I trust you - Triggers option two path: Fight Annabelle

 

OPTION ONE: Help Annabelle

Objective: Investigate what happened

 

A few steps away from the hut, you'll hear a horrified scream. Return to the hut to see Annabelle the pesta hovering over Graham's corpse before she vanishes. Turns out doing this only released her from the tower.

 

Option Results: This means Annabelle terrorizes the countryside causing illness and plague (cutscene only, no in-game impact).

 

Note: Option one rejoins the main sidequest thread after this point.

 

OPTION TWO: Fight Annabelle

 

If you take this path, you'll need to fight Annabelle a couple of times on your way out of the tower (you won't be able to kill her though, just force her to vanish).

 

Objective: Talk to Graham about Annabelle

 

Exit the tower and cross the lake to find Graham's hut on the shoreline. When you arrive, you'll find him unreceptive to guests but he will open the door when you speak. After hearing about what happened on the island, Geralt will convice Graham to return with him to the island to try and placate Annabelle's ghost.

 

Objective: Take Graham to Annabelle

 

Return to the tower, as you enter the lowest floor three wraiths will spawn in the room. Use quen to protect yourself from their back attacks and/ or yrden to force them to materialize. After slashing your way through. At the top of the tower, you'll be able to see the two lovers 'embrace,' and the curse will be lifted. Hell of a looker isn't she?

 

Option Results: Annabelle will be at rest and not haunt the tower any longer

 

Note: Option two rejoins the main sidequest thread here

 

Objective: Tell Keira you've lifted the curse on Fyke Isle

 

Fast-travel back to Keira's hut to give her the good news (or use the magic communicator) to conclude the sidequest, and obtain another one from her.

Objective: Protect the ritual's participants

 

A little after the ritual begins, three drowners and a water hag will come ashore from the South. Remember to use igni or quen signs to make the fight easier as you run about slashing at them with light attacks.

And then witch hunters show up. Great.

 

Objective: Defeat the witch hunters

 

By now you should be well versed in dealing with human opponents (this isn't the witcher 2 where the human enemies have a variety of attack styles and appearances). Abuse counterattacks and the quen sign and take them on one at a time when you can, running away when they bunch up and attack you together (or casting igni on the cluster).

A fiend will arrive to put the icing on your day.

 

Objective: Kill the fiend and the other monsters

 

The fiend is a highly damaging beast with a large health pool and a small regeneration effect slowly healing it (so you will need to deal with it quickly). The fiend has three basic attacks: A swipe with it's front claws, a headbutt to those in front of it and a charge if you are too far away. These attacks are easy to avoid (but seriously hurt if they connect) with dodges or rolls unless you are actively attacking.

 

Fiends are vulnerable to samum bombs, devil's puffball bombs and relict oil if you have it. Use quick hit and run attacks combined with quen to minimize the damage you take from lucky swings by the fiend. Eventually you should manage to drop it.

The third kept close to his faithful beast
The fourth marched not beside the first, yet like the second, played a tune

 

The inscription is to help you figure out in which order the braziers in front of the statues should be lit.

Objective: Search the werewolf's lair.

 

Get Geralt to knock the way he knows how. Aard.

 

Objective: Defeat the werewolf.

 

Kill the small wolves and take out the big guy. Sidestepping works well here. As well as Quen. Once you finish him off, you will have a scene and a choice.
