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

Skellige

Scavenger Hunt: Bear School Gear

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 20

Near the Ruined Inn marker is an abandoned house with a pair of wraiths in the basement. Take them out and check the nearby rooms for a chest containing a Bear School diagram and information on the full set. It's time for a scavenger hunt.

There are two markers at first, so your first stop is Fort Etinr, to the north of Rogne. Use your Witcher Senses to find a skeleton holding the next diagram. Now we'll head to the second marker, on the southwest end of Spikeroog. Head inside the cave here to find another skeleton on a high ledge. Loot it for the next diagram, and read the letter it's holding to learn of the next location.

Our next stop is Clan Tuirseach's castle, found directly north of Urialla Harbor. When you enter the castle, look for a pathway to the lower floor with dungeon cells. Head to the far end of this floor to find a lever that opens the cells, then look for one with a busted floor leading to a lower sewer area. This path will take you to the throne room back on the first floor, where you can find the remaining diagrams in a chest.

Ironside's Treasure

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level:

There's a Hidden Treasure on the small group of islands southeast of the Ruined Inn. Head there to find a skeleton, and loot it to find some notes. Read these to learn about treasure in the water nearby.

Hidden in the Depths

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 31

You can find a Hidden Treasure, a corpse, on the shore southwest of Larviken. Loot the corpse here to find a letter and a key. Read the letter, and the quest will end (there's seems to be something of a glitch). If you actually want the treasure mentioned in the letter, you can enter the nearby cave - be aware of high-level enemies inside - and use the key on a locked chest.

Iron Maiden

Prerequisite: Complete "Fists of Fury: Skellige." | Suggested Level: 19

East of Harviken is a hilltop arena where you'll find the warrior Jutta. She's heard of your fight against Olaf and wants to take you on herself. Defeat her in combat, and she'll ask more about you. Offer to tell her more about your past, then pay her a visit back in town.

Meet Jutta in her house at some point after 6pm to spend the rest of the night with her (you know what I mean). After a little roll in the hay, the quest will end.

Contract: Strange Beast

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 16

Check the Notice Board in Larvik to find this contract. Speak tot the village elder to learn that some mysterious monster is terrorizing the town. Head to your next marker to speak to some villagers who've encountered the thing. You'll learn more about the attacks.

Head to the search area and use your Witcher Senses to find a corpse, red claw, and blood stains. Follow these to reach the lair of the beast in question: a souped-up nekker. Take out the lackies in the cave, and the real boss will show up. Throughout the fight, it will tunnel to safety and summon additional nekkers, but the battle is still pretty simple. Once you're victorious, return to the elder in Larvik for a reward.
