Witcher 3 - Every Quest Walkthrough

Witcher 3 - Every Quest Walkthrough
Tag: witcher 3



In this post I'm going to be covering all of the Quests in the Witcher 3 with video walkthroughs for each. As you may already know, the Witcher 3 is an open world game with dozens upon dozens of side quests. The main story alone will take around 50 hours to complete but total completion for every Quest is estimated at around the 100 hour mark.

Since the Witcher 3 is so vast and some quests so complex in nature, you're bound to get stuck at some point. This guide will help you through those difficult moments so make a quick bookmark and come back as I walk you through every quest in detail.

Note: This is a work in progress and will be continually updated.


About Quests



Quest

The Witcher 3 is tightly focused on the storyline for three main characters: Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer. In total there are 8-10 main quests with each having several sub-branching quests or tasks. The main quests dig deeper into the characters story, leading you ever closer to the final ending as you chase down Ciri. There are 36 different endings in the Witcher 3, and every decision you make will take you close to one of them.

Every quest comes with a recommended level, which gives you some idea how difficult the quest will be before you attempt it. The Witcher 3 is not like your ordinary RPG either because some very high level quests may become available even if you're still at the lower levels. The maximum quest level is 50, whilst Geralt himself can reach level 60 without the expansions.

The Notice Board is a great place to pick up new Secondary Quests but not every quest is handed out that way - in fact almost every main quest starts from an interaction with a character or the exploration of a new area on the map. The smaller sub quests feed little trinkets of information to Geralt, helping him better understand his objective which is especially true in the case of prey. This detective like exploration provokes a hunter instinct as you close in on your goals throughout the game.

In addition to main quests, the side quests have been carefully designed by CD Projekt Red so they're intricately connected to the main quests, giving you the option to extend your adventure whenever you choose to. This is particularly rewarding if you find a certain town or character interesting and would like to enjoy more of the same. But you should remember that choosing to ignore some side quests can negatively impact your main Quest line, making life more difficult further down the line.

Below you will find a list of all the quests, with links to the appropriate text and YouTube walkthrough. If my walkthrough isn't ready in time I'll happily link to others so just leave a comment.
