Unofficial Quests Edit

Icon Name Needed for
Clothing Red Gloves
Precious stones diamond
Red gloves or a Diamond Red gloves or a diamond for a rendezvous with the Gossip. The conversation thread says "Some sort of frock" but the gloves do the trick (it may take many tries to get that particular conversation thread). Red gloves can be found in St. Lebioda's Hospital, in the laundry basket in the north-east corner of the main hall. There is also usually dog tallow in the dresser on the north side of the wall in the "altar room'.
Food Chicken
Food Some food item (any kind) to get information from the Gardener about his mercenary days. It is also possible to request flowers instead of a story.
Clothing Red Shawl
Red shawl Shawl for the herbalist in the market. She tells Geralt that she gathers her herbs by moonlight in the swamp.
Flowers Red Rose
Red roses Red roses for Shani to thank her (or perhaps apologise) for the party. This is how Geralt finds out what Dandelion interrupted in Oxenfurt.
Alcohol Kaedwenian Stout
Beer Nine (9) beers (and some Wives' Tears, unless you like staggering around!) for the drinking contest with Thaler. He gives Geralt a book (which can not be sold, unlike all other non-quest books, but has its uses).

Alcohol Kaedwenian Stout

Clothing Shawl

Official Quests Edit

Icon Name Needed for
Alcohol Mahakaman Mead
Dwarven liquor Anatomy of a Crime. The Gravedigger needs some alcohol (he specifies dwarven liquor, but anything strong seems to work) before he will release the body of the crown witness for an autopsy.
Substances Beggartick blossom

Potion Fisstech
Fisstech Memory of a Blade. Fisstech for Jethro to find out about the witcher's silver sword that was found at Thaler's place.
Substances Celandine
Celandine Old Friend of Mine. Five (5) celandine for Shani at St. Lebioda's Hospital. Shani thanks him and if Geralt asks her for a monster anatomy lesson, sometimes a useful bestiary entry is acquired, depending on what books he has read at that point and lore he has acquired.
Books Grandmas diary small
Alcohol Grandmas Cordial
Quest Items Grandmas pickles
Grandma's things Old Friend of Mine. Grandma's diary (if Geralt brings Carmen) or Grandma's cordial (if Geralt brings Siegfried) or Grandma's pickles and lard (if Geralt brings Zoltan). Pick these up the first time you go to Shani's, well before the party so they are ready to go and you do not have to stumble around drunk to get them (unless you like stumbling around drunk... after all, it does slow things down).
Alcohol Temerian Rye
Alcohol Cherry Cordial Spirit
Alcohol Mettina Rose
Party supplies Old Friend of Mine. Temerian rye, rosé wine and cherry cordial for Shani's party.
Potion Fisstech

Preparation for Quests in Later Chapters Edit

Icon Name Needed for
Substances Cockatrice feather
Cockatrice feather Keep the cockatrice feather from the greater cockatrice in the sewers for The Cockatrice Contract in Chapter III.
Alcohol Sodden Mead
Sodden mead Or any medium or strong alcohol for the drinking contest with Erkin von Blunt in Chapter III, you will need Five (5). Check the trunk at the back of Ramsmeat's house for a bottle of sodden mead. Also, there is a lumberjack in the swamp who is willing to sell Geralt his possessions, which also include a bottle of sodden mead, a red meteorite (I am not sure about this one, whether or not he hands over the meteorite may depend on how many red meteorite pieces Geralt has already found) and a silver ring, for 200 Items Oren. If Geralt does not yet have the Wives' Tears formula, this is also given.
Precious stones sapphire
Sapphire It is possible that if Geralt chose not to fight Savolla in the Prologue, that there is a sapphire in the chest at the back of Ramsmeat's house (the same chest that has the bottle of sodden mead). I am not sure if the two events are definitely related, but if so, keep that sapphire for Blue Eyes in Chapter III.
Items Fleder fang
Fleder fangs Fleders sometimes appear outside of The Hairy Bear at night or inside the cemetery crypt. Keep three fleder fangs for The Fleder Contract in Chapter III.
Food Wyvern Meat
Wyvern steaks Keep any wyvern steaks you may harvest from Wyvern Island for use in Chapters III and IV.
Substances Graveir bone
Graveir bones You can find graveirs in the crypt for Finders Keepers or in the Vizima cemetery. Keep five of them for The Graveir Contract in Chapter III.
