Velen, Grayrocks Map The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Here, next to Hanged Man's Tree signpost, you start your adventure in Velen after leaving Royal Palace in Vizima.

The Redanian army had placed blockades on the crossings of the Pontar, something which at one point proved quite inconvenient to the witcher. The guards refused to let him cross without showing a special pass issued by high command.

Signposts

Once discovered, signposts allow you to travel directly from one location to another. Walk up to a signpost and use it to open ingame map.

Secondary questWild at Heart (7) - Posted on Mulbrydale Notice Board.

During the war that pitted the Northern Realms against Nilfgaard, the border along the Pontar river was closed.

- See what counterfeit pass seller's brother-in-law needs. - You need to complete Bitter Harvest (9) and supervisor can't die.

Quest completed.

Secondary questBitter Harvest (9)

The Nilfgaardian and Redanian forces had fought many bloody yet indecisive battles in Velen from which both sides had to retreat without collecting their dead. On one such field Geralt encountered a group of looters robbing the corpses of the fallen. In another time and place he might have merely grit his teeth and continued on his way. Yet conditions in Velen were harsh and other sources of sustenance few - so he decided to swallow his revulsion and defend these desparate men from the monsters stalking the battlefield.

- Protect the scavengers from monsters. - Don't let Albin Hart die.

- Talk to the scavengers' supervisor.

Quest completed.

- Talk to the survivor.

Quest completed.

Secondary questThe Volunteer (13)

While meandering through the sunny but war-damaged lands near Oxenfurt, Geralt's sensitive ears picked up a very strange sound - something between off-key singing and the bellowing of a stuck pig. Geralt would be a poor excuse for a witcher if he did not investigate such a matter.

- Find the paint the troll needs. - One of the merchants in Oxenfurt has it.

- Deliver the paint to the troll.

Quest completed. As a reward you will receive: Diagram: Axeman's gauntlets, Diagram: Gven'nel and some crafting goods.

Witcher Contracts

Witcher contractContract: Woodland Beast (6) - Posted on Border Post Notice Board.

Monsters, like men, each have their own individual tastes and preferences. According to legend, dragons like to savor the delicate notes of virgins, while ghouls delight in the powerful flavors of rotting flesh. In the woods outside Novigrad, meanwhile, a beast had cropped up with a predilection for Redanian transport wagons. Not surprisingly, the captain of the nearby guardpost did not appreciate this culinary choice and put out a bounty on the monster's head.

- Talk to commander of the guardpost by the bridge to Novigrad.

- Examine the site where transport was attacked using your Witcher Senses.

- Follow the tracks using your Witcher Senses. - You can talk to Scoia'tael commander and finish this task peacefully or use the force and ...

- Kill the Scoia'tael.

- Gather squirrel tails as evidence.

- Return to the guardpost captain for your reward.

Quest completed. No matter what you've done, you will receive pass to cross the Pontar.
