Fleeing the Bog is a main quest and the fourth Ciri side-mission in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It takes place during the quest Ladies of the Wood. Chronologically it is the first event that takes place and explains how Ciri ended up Velen.

Quest Description Edit

"When Ciri arrived in Velen, she found herself in the very heart of the notorious Crookback Bog. Exhausted, she sought shelter, but instead found herself in the clutches of three demonic sisters known to the local peasants as the Ladies of the Wood. Ciri quickly realized how poorly that name fit these blood-thirsty hags and fled. She escaped with her life by a hair's breadth, but still had a long and dangerous trek through the marshes ahead of her.

Crookback Bog is home to more than its fair share of horrifying beasts, but none of them hold a candle to the general of the Wild Hunt who chased Ciri now. Imlerith – for that was his name – had arrived on the Crones' summons to take Ciri back to his king. The young witcher was able to give her pursuer the slip, but the two foes were destined to meet again in the future.

Better to run than stand and fight risking getting overwhelmed

Escape Crookback Bog Edit

Ciri overhears the crones plans to eat her flesh and/or turn her over to the Wild Hunt and slips out of the hut in which she's been laying. Imlerith follows, and soon Ciri is attacked by drowners and hounds of the wild hunt. Simply run straight for the quest marker on the map. There is no need to fight any of the monsters that spawn unless it is desired. Once Ciri reaches the marker she will successfully hide from Imlerith, and eventually leave behind Crookback Bog to tumble down into another area of Velen presumably leaving off where the quest Ciri's Story: The King of the Wolves actually begins.
