Stages of "Father Knows Worst" quest
1. Talk to the men issuing the contract.
One day, while strolling through Beauclair's bustling streets, Geralt spotted a notice - someone was in need off an escort as they wished to penetrate a cave. The task seemed none too complicated or taxing, so the witcher concluded it would be unwise to let it pass.
Go to the Monster Den.
2. Find out what happened to the missing brother.
If you took the quest from notice board then:
Before speaking to the posters of the notice, Geralt set out to do a bit of reconnaissance. Yet he returned to them quickly to find out what the job was to entail. The brothers, trembling in fear, explained that their other brother, beset by monsters, was trapped in a nearby cave.
One day, while traversing Toussaint's charming wilderness, Geralt ran into two men desperately calling for help. As they told it, their brother had remained in the cave they had just hastily left. Nothing out of the ordinary, I suppose, if not for the fact that inside this sibling had been attacked by beasts. Geralt decided he would try to help the man.
Enter the cave.
3. Defeat the kikimores.
You have to kill several Kikimores (36) and Kikimore Warrior (36).
5. Follow the trail.
7. Retrieve the missing part from the lake.
Geralt followed a trail of blood to find Hugo. Wounded by monsters, the man had sought shelter in the cave's depths.
You can skip this stage if you want and tell Hugo that you should go out.
Dive in the hot pond. Use Quen Sign to protect you from the heat. At the bottom you will find the missing part - Still filter.
8. Return the filter to Hugo.
Hugo begged Geralt to find a condenser, part of a complicated contraption his father had devised. Papa had cast this part into an underground lake.
You can keep the part (In this case you will give it back at the end of the quest).
Before you leave the cave, yoy will have to make one more decision - use force againts brothers (Yeah, I'll make sure you're not hurt). or finish it without using force (No one dies. Not today.).
9. Defeat your opponents.
This stage will be active if you decided to use the force.
10. Quest completed.
If you used the force againt brothers then ...
As Geralt and Hugo headed for the exit out of the none-too-hospitable caverns, Hugo's two brothers and a handful of armed men blocked their way. Fearing for his life, Hugo begged the witcher to teach his treacherous bastard brothers a lesson. Deciding that he should see the matter through to the end, Geralt fulfilled Hugo's wish.
or (a peaceful solution)
As Geralt and Hugo were leaving the none-too-hospitable caverns, Hugo's two siblings, assisted by a handful of armed men, blocked their way. Fearing for his life, Hugo begged the witcher to teach his treacherous bastard brothers a lesson. Yet as we all know, Geralt has a strong aversion for unnecessary violence, so he turned Hugo down. This proved a wise decision - forced to discuss their differences, the three brothers settled their dispute and resolved to embark on an enterprise together.
