Just outside of Oxenfurt at northeast of the Novigrad Gate and southwest of the Herbalist's Hut, a merchant advertises a "basilisk" to a group of Redanian soldiers. The merchant explains to Geralt that his basilisk is from Zerrikania and is hatched from the eggs of cockerels. The witcher can remark about the basilisk being laid from the eggs of cockerels or go straight to telling the merchant that his basilisk is actually a young ill-fed wyvern. A Redanian soldier will then call out the merchant for being a cheat after the realization. The wyvern will then suddenly break free and fight both the witcher and the soldiers. After killing the wyvern, the quest will end with Geralt remarking that the cage was as fake as the basilisk.

- Once the fight begins, the Beast Tamer will take off running towards the Novigrad Gate where he will cower in fear behind a small building. Geralt can follow him until he stops running, but will not be able to interact with him.
