Stages of "Gwent: To Everything - Turn, Turn, Tournament!" quest
1. Meet with the tournament's organizer.
One day, Geralt came across a notice board with information about a gwent tournament organized by Count Monnier and to be held at the Pheasantry. The witcher, as everyone knew, was not one to turn down a bit of card playing, so he decided to join the event. Little did he know what surprises awaited him there...
2. Find other gwent players and win stronger Skellige faction cards from them. Current deck strength: 0/24
Count Monnier was a man as enterprising as he was creative. He and his brother Igor had decided to perfect gwent by adding a fifth faction: Skellige. The count announced that, if Geralt wished to take part in the tournament, he would be given a basic Skellige deck but would have to build it up himself. To acquire more powerful cards, Geralt had to find and defeat gwent players in Toussaint.
One more quest will be added to your journal - Gwent: Never Fear, Skellige's Here.
3. Enter the tournament.
Go to the Pheasantry and talk to the Count Monnier's Guard.
3.1. Deal with the vampires attacking the city before continuing with the tournament.
This stage is optional and will be active only if the vampires attacked the city (Capture the Castle and the next main story quests).
4. Win the tournament.
Geralt's deck was deemed worthy by Count Monnier and thus the witcher qualified to enter the tourney. Players from all over the world were to take part in it along with him. There was a nobleman from Novigrad, the Nilfgaardian ambassador, an Ofieri merchant, a contestant from Skellige and the organizer of the tournament himself, Count Monnier.
To win the tournament you have to beat:
1. Hamal ogn Dangbahli (Monster deck) - accept an extra bet before you start, then upon your victory you will receive the steel sword - Blave.
2. Ambassador von Hinn (Nilfgaard deck)
At this point tournament will be interrupted by protesting dwarves.
3. Cout Monnier (Skellige deck)
To receive the prize - The Victor's Cup you don't have to beat Yaki the dwarf!
4.1. Fight the dwarves.
It does not matter whether you win or lose the fight.
5. Defeat Yaki the dwarf in a game of gwent.
This stage will be available only if you won the tournament, otherwise Count Monnier will play with Yaki.
If you won ...
Geralt played a final match against a dwarf named Yaki. He knew very well this was a game of key importance, for not only was victory in the tournament at stake, but also Count Monnier's honor and the fate of the new faction he had introduced. In the end, Geralt defeated the dwarf and Yaki proved himself an honorable player by admitting defeat and remaining calm. If only all conflicts in the world could be resolved over a hand of gwent...
If you lost ...
Geralt played a final match against a dwarf named Yaki. Despite Geralt's best efforts, his opponent proved the better player and defeated the witcher. This victory so delighted the opponents of the new faction, they decided to make peace with Count Monnier. The traditionalists left the Pheasantry peacefully, confident in their superiority. If only all conflicts in the world could be resolved over a hand of gwent...
6. Quest completed.
You won the tournament ...
Geralt proved himself the best gwent player in Toussaint by defeating all comers at the elite tournament. This was doubly happy news, for the tournament might never have come to any conclusion at all. A group of opponents of the new Skellige faction had decided to show up to express their discontent. A tense altercation took place, but luckily both sides kept their cool.
You lost one or more matches ...
Despite Geralt's best efforts, he failed to emerge victorious at the tournament. Playing his cards well did not, however, turn out to be his only worry during the tournament. While they played, outside the building where the tournament was held a group of tradition-minded lovers of the old rules of gwent gathered to protest the addition of a new faction. After a short fight, the situation was brought under control and the two sides sat down for talks.
