Suggested level: 47
This quest will be triggered or can be aquired when you complete Blood Simple quest.
Stages of "What Lies Unseen" quest
1. Go to the Unseen Elder's lair.
Geralt now knew how to find the Unseen Elder's lair. He went to fetch Regis, and together they set off to meet the ancient bloodsucker. I can only imagine how difficult a Regis' predicament was. After all, he was about to help his dear friend set a deadly trap for another of his close comrades...
Use the boat, it will be the fastest way to get there.
3. Enter the Unseen Elder's lair.
Follow the tunnels, in the end you will get to his hideout. No matter what you say, Unseen Elder will be very angry at you.
4. Find a healing potion.
Regis had expressed some concerns about meeting with the Unseen Elder. These proved not at all unfounded nor in any way exaggerated. To say the ancient vampire treated his guests impolitely would be a gross understatement. In a matter of moments, the Unseen paralyzed Regis, while he took Geralt and, much as if he were a rag doll, hurled him to the floor of the cave. The witcher was hurt rather badly. Yet somehow he needed to find an understanding with the vampire...
The bottle should be somewhere nearby.
5. Drink Swallow to regenerate Vitality.
6. Get out of the cave.
Go to a large cavern with a bonfire and waterfalls.
6.1. [Optional] Collect the items and gear you lost as you fell.
Pick up from the ground all the items you lost as you fell.
7. Find a way to appease the Unseen Elder.
8. Explore the cave and find a way out.
Check the bag lying next to the fire. Inside you will find Mage's notes.
9. Read the notes you found.
10. Find the mage.
Follow mage's footsteps. On your way you will have to kill two never seen before vampires.
11. Find a way to get to the exit.
One more Mage's notes.
Come to the water.

12. Search the body.
You have to kill the vampire guarding the body first. In the body you will find one more mage's note - Crumpled letter.
13. Read the mage's notes.
15. Find a way to get to the exit.
Jump and climb up a bit more.
20. Quest completed.
The Unseen's ghastly reputation proved entirely deserved. He had exactly no tolerance for unexpected guests. And he was mortal danger embodied. In the end Geralt managed to convince the creature to help him, but persuading the beast had almost cost the witcher his life. I have no doubt the witcher breathed a sigh of relief after their meeting, and drew comfort from the thought it would not be the Unseen he would face during the final confrontation at Tesham Mutna.
Next / new quest is Tesham Mutna (Main Story, Blood and Wine).
