The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt side quest and contract guide [inc. Blood and Wine]

White Orchard

Missing in Action

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: N/A

Talk to Dune on the southern edge of the town to start this quest. Agree to help find his brother Bastien, then fast travel to the Crossroads.

Head north to your marker to find Dune. To find his brother on the battlefield, examine the shields with painted white flowers. After checking them all, follow Dune's dog Hussan to find Bastien in a cottage nearby.

On Death's Bed

Prerequisite: Complete "The Beast of White Orchard." | Suggested Level: 2

After completing "The Beast of White Orchard," return to Tomira in her hut. She's trying to heal a sick girl, and you can help by concocting some Swallow. If you don't already have them, you can find most of the ingredients planted behind Tomira's huts. You'll also need some dwarven spirit (buyable at the tavern) and brains from drowners (found in a couple places in White Orchard). Gather what you need, brew the potion, and return it to Tomira to finish the quest.

Contract: Devil by the Well

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 2

You can grab this contract from the Notice Board in White Orchard proper. To start the hunt, head to the house on the west edge of town and speak to Odolan. You'll learn about a ghostly woman plaguing a nearby water source.

The next step is to ride south to the Abandoned Village marked on the map. When you arrive, use Witcher Sense to examine the ground around the well and learn about Noonwraiths. Read the Bestiary entry on them, then continue to examine the abandoned buildings until you find a diary.

You'll eventually have to hop into the well itself and find a bracelet in the water below. Read the diary and return the bracelet to the corpse by the well. Once the wraith is summoned, slay her - Yrden is extra powerful here. When you've finished the fight, return to Odolan to wrap up the contract.

Twisted Firestarter

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: N/A

Speak to Willis on the west side of White Orchard to start this quest and learn that his workshop has been destroyed. Start by using Witcher Sense behind the hut to find a set of footprints.

Follow them to the boat by the stream, then check on the same shore, but other side of the bridge to find more. Follow the now bloody prints to enter a home. You'll find the culprit in the back room. From here, you can either take money for protecting the arsonist or lead him back to the smith. Either choice will finish the quest.

A Frying Pan, Spick and Span

Prerequisite: Begin "The Beast of White Orchard." | Suggested Level: N/A

Along the river past the western edge of White Orchard is an Old Woman trying to enter a hut. Listen to her tale and agree to help track down her pan to begin. Use Aard to break the door down and enter the hut, then use Witcher Sense to find a corpse, some burned documents, and the missing pan. Return the pan to the woman for a reward.
