Primary quests

The Ashes of Vizima is a quest which is automatically received upon completion of Chapter V; it launches the Epilogue. At this point, Geralt's Paths essentially converge; only the absence or presence of certain key players, whose lives have been impacted by Geralt's choices, varies.

Walkthrough Edit

Paths epilog

Having just found out that the Grand Master of the Order of the Flaming Rose is behind Salamandra, the witcher and his ally (either Yaevinn, Siegfried or Triss) head back to Vizima to inform the king. Geralt's path has already affected the political landscape in Temeria (and abroad) and those consequences are mentioned in his exchange with Foltest.

Politics aside, Geralt brings the king up to date on what he has found, and is urged to finish the job for 8000 Items Oren (10000, less an appropriate amount of income tax). The witcher then sets out, still aided by his ally, to find the Grand Master at the Cloister and finally retrieve the stolen Witchers' Secrets. Along the way he encounters friends and allies, frightened refugees, mutant assassins, greater brothers and a zeugl.

Notes Edit

  • Be aware that Dandelion is the last and only access to your storage from this point on. You will have some chances to collect ingredients and potion bases (and find several fireplaces) but no more opportunities to buy or sell. Best to put away gifts and other valuables and just stock up on potions and ingredients.
  • For the Witcher / neutral path, you have the option of appeasing or further antagonising both Siegfried and Yaevinn as you meet them in the streets.
  • For the Zeugl fight make sure to use the silver sword as steel does not work despite the susceptibility article saying it doesn't matter.

Phases Edit

Meeting the King Edit

Items Squirrel tail It looks like Foltest made a deal with Radovid, the king of Redania. They want to take control of the situation together. I must speak to the king, protect Yaevinn from being arrested. Maybe news of the Grand Master's betrayal will work... I must inform the king of the Grand Master's betrayal. or
