While fleeing the Crones of Crookback Bog, Ciri encountered and rescued a girl named Gretka. Gretka warned Ciri about the "Wolf King and his pack" that were preventing her from returning home, before leading Ciri to the cave which was the monster's lair. Ciri slayed the beast, but was injured. A survivor who was in the cave helped Ciri and Gretka reach civilization by escorting them to his baron's castle at Crow's Perch.
Combat Tactics Edit
Preparing the proper sword oil is essential to making this boss fight easier. If Yaren's corpse is not fully examined, Ciri may incorrectly identify the monster as a fiend and prepare the wrong oil, making the fight more difficult. In order for the correct oil to be prepared, the chest, legs, and belly of the victim must all be examined.
Basic dodge skills and attack moves are the only moves available to Ciri during this fight. This enemy has only melee attacks and will use a dash every so often to close a gap. The best strategy is to dodge in, fast attack, and dodge out before Ciri can be hit.
