Secondary Quests

Secondary questMonster Slayer (26) - Examine drowner's corpse, many of them lying along the shore.

While walking along the shore of the lake near Kaer Morhen, Geralt came across the body of a drowner. The witcher thought at first that Lambert or Eskel had killed the creature - but upon closer inspection he soon discovered there were no marks dealt by sword or Sign. It was thus clear someone - or something - else had done the drowner in. They say the enemy of one's enemy is a friend, but Geralt wanted to see who exactly this drowner-killing "friend" was.

- Use your Witcher Senses to find out what's killing drowners near the lake. - Search for Troll's Lair.

- Kill the troll.

- Search the troll's lair. - Find Old letter.

- Read the letter.

Quest completed.

Secondary questThe Bastion (26)

An observation tower located on a hillside near Kaer Morhen caught Geralt's eye. Though the structure had been there for as long as he could remember, this was the first time in ages he had bothered to inspect it more closely. When he did, he discovered a whole heap of wraiths had taken up residence within. I've said it before and I'll say it again - witchers make horrible housekeepers.

- Explore the old bastion near Kaer Morhen using your Witcher Senses. - Few Wraiths (23) here.

Secondary questGreenhouse Effect (27)

It turned out even the area around Kaer Morhen, a place which - one would think - Geralt knows by heart, can hide a great many interesting and undiscovered phenomena. Not far from the keep, Geralt came across an area where the weather differed remarkably from that of its surroundings. He decided to investigate what sort of forces were at work.

- Investigate the weather anomaly using your Witcher Senses. - Find Letter from the resident mage.

- Read the mage's letter.
