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

Hearts of Stone

The Sword, Famine and Perfidy

Prerequisite: N/A | Recommended Level: 36

There's a new Undiscovered Location on the peninsula immediately north of Novigrad - it's a small hut guarded by some drowners. Take them out, head inside, and use Aard to blow some barrels off of a trap door. Head down to find a corpse, then loot it for a key and a letter. Read said letter to learn of a sunken ship somewhere in the area. Use the boat in the water nearby to sail out to your new marker, then dive in to find some treasure inside a sunken rowboat.

The Cursed Chapel

Prerequisite: N/A | Recommended Level: 36

Directly north of the Upper Mill is an Undiscovered Location, a Hidden Treasure by the Old Chapel. Examine the corpse here to find a journal entry, then read it to learn of treasure nearby. Once you step into the courtyard behind the chapel, you'll encounter a trio of wraiths. Led down Yrden and take them out, then check out the mausoleum back here - there's a whole catacomb inside. There's also a boss wraith, the Cursed Mother. Lay down Yrden again and take her out, then loot the corpse by the altar for some sweet runes.

The Royal Air Force

Prerequisite: N/A | Recommended Level: 36

Northeast of the Temerian Partisan Hideout (and just north of Heddel) is an Undiscovered Location, called Vikk Watchtower. You'll know you've reached the site when you see harpies flying around some ruins. Check by the entrance for a corpse, loot it to find a notebook, then read that notebook to learn of nearby treasure. Head past the piles of bodies to the destroyed tower and start making your way to the top - you'll have to navigate some disheveled platforms. At the very top is a chest containing your prize.

A Surprise Inheritance

Prerequisite: N/A | Recommended Level: 38

In the southeast pocket of the region is a pair of Undiscovered Locations: an Abandoned Site, and a Hidden Treasure. Check the latter to find a corpse near a ballista, then loot it to find a journal page. Read this to place a new marker on your map, and head there to find what appears to be a destroyed house. Find the trap door nearby and drop inside to find a chest containing some sweet loot.

The Secret Life of Count Romilly

Prerequisite: N/A | Suggested Level: 38

In the southeastern corner of the region is another Undiscovered Location, a Hidden Treasure guarded by wolves and a leshen. Take them out and examine the corpse here to find a journal page. Read it learn of treasure in the Arnskrone Castle Ruins up the nearby hill. Head there, take out some more wolves, and look for a staircase to the lower part of the castle. Down here you'll find a splintered door (use Aard), some wraiths, and chest containing a few pieces of nice loot.
