Stages of "Contract: The Tufo Monster" quest
1. Go to the Tufo Vineyard and talk to the poster of the notice.
Customs in Toussaint differ markedly from those observed in the North. The fashions differ, folk drink wine instead of rye vodka, beer or mead, and the women are generally more amorous while men are more attentive to their own appearance (it is quite likely the two latter issues are linked). There is one custom, however, that remains unchanged both south and north of the Yaruga. Namely, faced by a monster problem, folk post a notice on a notice board, in which notice they promise to pay a reward, and then they pray a witcher happens by and reads it. The owner of the Tufo Vineyard did just as this custom ordains, and as it happened, Geralt was the one to find his note.
2. Go to the cellars after dark.
The Tufo Vineyard was plagued by tremors caused by some unknown underground force. Yet these were no ordinary earthquakes, a phenomenon entirely unknown in Toussaint. The tremors caused noteworthy damage, as buildings collapsed, wine bottles fell from shelves and shattered, and wine barrels burst, releasing into the dirt their ever so valuable contents. The vineyard's owner suspected some subterranean beast was the culprit, and Geralt was inclined to admit he was right.
4. Figure out what's causing the noises coming from the cellars.
Use aard sign to destroy this wall.
In the tunnels, you will come across some kikimore workers (47). Use aard sign to destroy another wall.
5. Search the underground tunnels.
In the bigest cave you will have to kill a few more kikimore workers (47) and kikimore warrior (48).
Examine cracked kikimore eggs, big tunnels and crack in the floor.
6. Return to the surface and talk to the owner.
Having learned the disturbing noises thought to be those of the Monster of Tufo were coming from the cellar, the witcher immediately ventured there. Geralt had barely arrived when, without any excess effort, he heard the scraping and crumbling of rocks beyond the cellar wall. Upon investigating the noise, he discovered a network of long, winding corridors stretching beneath the entire vineyard. In one chamber Geralt found a kikimore nest, but quickly concluded the beasts were not the cause of the trouble. The creature that had dug these tunnels was clearly much larger - and far more dangerous.
You will receive 100 gold for killing kikimores.
7. Go to the place where Jean-Luc was last seen.
Find picnic area. The most important trace you need to examine here are footprints of two people.
8. Follow Jean-Luc's tracks using your Witcher Senses.
At some points footprints split. Follow footprints going left.
9. Follow the monster's tracks using your Witcher Senses.
After speaking to the woman he had encountered on the estate, Geralt went to the spot where the farmhand Jean-Luc had last been seen. Following the man's trail, the witcher arrived at the entrance to a complex of caverns. There he established that the monster he was hunting could be none other than a shaelmaar.
Monster tracks will lead you to the cave entrance.
11. Collect some blood from the body in the cave.
Collect Fresh human blood from the corpse of Jean-Luc. You can also find Silver pendant.
12. Collect sewant mushrooms to use to brew shaelmaar bait. 0/3
There are a lot of mushrooms growing in the cave and tunnels. You probably already have enough of them in your inventory.
14. Spread the bait in tunnels near the surface.
Spread the bait in the places marked on your map. Use quick access button to spread it.
17. Return to your contract giver for your reward.
Monsieur de Bourbeau is in his vine cellar.
If you found the Silver pendant then one more dialog option will be active. Use it if you want to earn extra 100 gold.
Madame de Bourbeau and the farmhand - something going on there.
18. Quest completed.
The last remaining thing left for Geralt to do was simultaneously the most pleasant part of the job. Namely, he could now collect his reward. Fortunately, despite his many flaws, Monsieur de Bourbeau nonetheless proved an upstanding man, paying the witcher his remuneration down to the last crown.
