There are lots of cool hidden places in The Witcher 3, but here are my top ten places to find that are off the beaten track.
The final part of “Contract: Missing Brother” on Skellige. Geralt finds Bruno’s brother, Mikkel. Unfortunately killed by a unique Venomous Arachas and its insectoid young.
I decide to do an outstanding contract quest while on Skellige. I need to look for Bruno’s missing brother, Mikkel.
A sensible Witcher 3 player will leave a significant proportion of the Smuggler’s Caches until they’re near the end of the game.
Running rings around a level 21 Cyclops in the moonlight. The key to dodging his blows is to have the skill ‘Fleet-Footed’ activated at all times. And to keep dodging, obviously.
These two abandoned sites on Skellige – found in close proximity to each other – have been left alone until now. One needs clearing of Wolves, the other – Harpies. It’s time to finally get down to it.
It’s safe to say that The Witcher 3 is packed full of humorous moments. Some of them even laugh-out-loud. I kept a tally of those occasions where the game made me laugh.
In the final part of the quest “The Tower Outta Nowheres” Geralt must fight an electrically-charged Earth Elemental, while Sigo Buntz tries to deactivate the tower’s defence system.
Another holiday side-quest – “The Tower Outta Nowheres” – which is recommended for level 30 players. I’m way past that now (level 45), so can beat whatever the Defensive Regulatory Magicon can throw at me. Even a cow.
While I’m on holiday in Skellige it makes sense to tie up a few loose ends. This quest – “Contract: Skellige’s Most Wanted” – is a varied and interesting ‘prove your empathy towards monsters’ quest, where your previous deeds in the game are judged by a panel of monsters.
