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.
These are unique Witcher 3 monsters that are not contracts, but are related to quests and haven’t been mentioned in either our Boss Fights Guide, our general Monster Guide, or our Monster Contracts Guide.
As Geralt approaches the Seidhe Llygad Amphitheater in southern Toussaint he senses that something isn’t right. Inside he finds a dead woman and evidence that she tried to summon the long dead actress Elsa de Longpré, a spectre who has been haunting the amphitheatre, preventing it being used by anyone else.
The third option, and another ‘not so good’ ending of the quest “A Knight’s Tales”. In this branch you tell the Witch of Lynx Crag that you’ll perform the ritual without her help, and you also fail to find the body of Sir Gareth in the caves below her house.
Climbing the large tower at the centre of the landscape, Geralt goes looking to talk to Longlocks, who’s supposed to be in the room at the top.
Geralt explores the von Everec mansion, looking for Iris von Everec. He finds a belligerent ghost, and various aggressive spectres, before eventually discovering Iris. This video contains spoilers.
A small side quest at Count Romilly’s Castle Ruins, leads to the completion of another side quest, called “A Dark Legacy”. This quest is only available if you buy the figurine during the auction during the quest “Open Sesame!”
Easing myself into Hearts of Stone with a short quest called “The Cursed Chapel”. I make my way through the Wraith-infested courtyard and into the crypt below the chapel itself, to fight the Cursed Mother.
A re-run of a previous failure. This time, though, my fight with a level 47 Spriggan at Cutterin Manor is hindered by a pesky Wraith that has strayed into the battleground.
The extended Yrden circle is 40% bigger than normal, it replenishes Geralt’s stamina quicker when he’s inside it, it lowers his damage taken, and doubles Geralt’s Sign intensity.
