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

Around the World in... Eight Days

Suggested Level: 40 | Prerequisites: N/A  

There’s an Undiscovered Location, a Hidden Treasure, almost directly south of the Trading Post. Kill the bandits there and loot the chest to find a letter and a key. Read the letter to get a new marker by the water, then head down to the shore. Take out the additional bandits and loot the chest in the shallows to find some loot.   

What Was This About Again?  

Suggested Level: 43 | Prerequisites: N/A  

There’s another Hidden Treasure in the water on the shore south of the Silver Salamander Inn. Dive in and find the chest to acquire a key and a letter. Read the letter to mark a cave underwater, then dive in and swim through the chamber. Inside, you’ll have to battle a shaelmaar, but you’ll find a loot-filled chest on a ledge when you do.   

The Suffering of Young Francois  

Suggested Level: 47 | Prerequisites: N/A  

Immediately south of the Fort Astre Ruins is a Hidden Treasure, a corpse hanging from a tree. Kill the wraith in the area, then loot the corpse to find a note. Read it, and you’ll get a new marker on your map. Head to the nearby vineyard and use your Witcher senses to find the jewels and finish this quick quest.   

The Curse of Carnarvon   

Suggested Level: 46 | Prerequisites: N/A  

Just northwest of Castel Ravello Vineyard is another corpse marked as a Hidden Treasure. Loot the body for a journal and a key, then read the journal to drop a new marker on your map. Head there to find a campsite guarded by two archespores. Take them out and search the camp to find a chest full of loot.   

Contract: The Tufo Monster  

Suggested Level: 48 | Prerequisites: N/A  

You can get this contract from the notice board in Flovive. Head to the Tufo Estate at the northern edge of the town and speak to the monsieur. Something is making noises in his fields, and some of his men have gone missing. Start your investigation in the estate’s cellar. Use your Witcher senses to check for clues, and something will crack the wall nearby; use Aard to blow through into a secret tunnel.  

Make your way through the tunnel, taking out kikimores along the way. Eventually, you’ll come to a large chamber with more clues – there’s something big down here. Burn all the kikimore eggs you can find, then return to the surface. The monsieur’s wife has returned, and she has some information about the missing farmhand.  

Head to your new marker in the fields to the north and use your Witcher senses to find two sets of footprints. Follow the left one to reach some flattened bushes; looks like a shaelmaar did this. Follow the tracks all the way into a cave to find the beast’s lair. Find the farmhand’s body, pick up his pendant, then draw some blood from his body. Pick a few mushrooms from the cave, then combine them with the blood to make shaelmaar bait. Spread it around, slay the beast, and return to the estate for your reward.
