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

Velen

Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Fire

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: N/A

Southwest of the Marauder's Bridge marker is an Undiscovered Location that will become a Hidden Treasure. Look for a cellar door you can bust through with Aard. Check the body in the small cave beyond for a key and a crumpled note. Read the note, then check the newly highlighted area with Witcher Sense to find more loot inside a haystack.

An Unfortunate Turn of Events

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: N/A

Fireburst Harbor is an area directly south of the Devil's Pit marker. Head there to find a body in the water, marked as Hidden Treasure on your map. Loot the corpse and read the letter you find to learn of some cargo that fell into the water. Dive in and use your Witcher Sense in the search area to find more loot and complete the quest.

Contract: Missing Brother

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 33

You can start this quest at the Notice Board at the Inn at the Crossroads. Read about a man's missing brother, then enter the nearby tavern and speak to Bruno. Head northeast to your new marker to find a large, watery mine.

You need to head all the way to the rear chamber of the mine - this path will take you through a water-filled tunnel. When you reach the chamber, a brief cut scene will play, then you'll have to fight the master of the cavern: a giant, poisonous arachas. The battle itself isn't too bad, though the boss does have pretty high defense - oils will help. Be sure to take care of any additional spider-lings that crawl into the arena too. Return to Bruno after the fight for a nice reward.

Contract: Jenny O' the Woods

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 10

You can get this contract from the Notice Board in Midcopse. Do so, then head to the ealdorman marked on your map to learn about a wraith terrorizing the area. Talk to some townsfolk for witness accounts, then head to the field outside of town.

Use your Witcher Senses to follow some footprints to a shallow grave. Grab the letter atop the grave and read it, then return to the ealdorman to learn where the wraith might be hiding out.

Head to that marker and wait for nightfall - Jenny will appear. This battle works like any wraith fight: use Yrden and dodge her swiping attacks, taking out any clones she might spawn. Slay her and return to the ealdorman to finish your quest.

Lynch Mob

Prerequisite: None | Suggested Level: 7

There's a group of peasants hanging out by the Hangman's Alley marker, threatening a merchant. Speak to them, and you can choose to walk away or kill the peasants. Either one will wrap up the quest quickly.
