The Witcher 3: All Novigrad Side Quests - Now or Never, A Deadly Plot Walkthrough

A guide to all of the secondary quests that can be found in Novigrad.

If this wasn't what you were after, then head over to our Witcher 3 guides walkthrough hub, featuring additional quest walkthroughs, as well as the locations of every elusive Witcher gear diagram.

Before you begin, we'd advise that you complete as many of these quests as you can prior to progressing the main quest line forward. Once you leave an area, or move from one act to another, you stand the chance of failing a quest simply due to the fact you can no longer complete it. This can see that you miss out on some very cool plot twists, as well as weapons, armor and experience that you'll need if you plan to see this journey through to the end.

You can make some choices here about helping Dandelion and reading the card or improvising, but it all leads to the same outcome. You'll have to fight against Dandelion, but don't take it seriously. Just let him hit you and swing enough times to make it look real without actually hurting him too much.

Go back to the Rosemary and Thyme and meditate until morning. Head inside where you'll have to make another decision. While your choice here doesn't have much of an impact, if you wish to please Dandelion choose a theatrical look. Head southwest to find Dandelion, then use your Witcher Senses to find a key under the bucket.

Head inside and once again you'll have a decision to make. Choose the second option to start a fight or the first option to avoid one. Either way, head to the next objective then over to Rautlec's place just northwest of the Golden Sturgeon. Make your way north to cross the canal, then northwest to the entrance. Head inside and fight off the two bandits to get the information you need.

The next destination is to the far east where you'll find Rautlec once more. You have another choice to make. You can choose to race, but if you lose you'll have to pay 275 crowns. You can just pay off the debt of 200 crowns, or you can choose to do nothing. The best course of action is to win the race, but your choice here doesn't have a significant impact either way.

Witcher 3: Carnal Sins Quest Walkthrough

Head to the Kingfisher Inn and look around the side entrance for the sewer grate. Go down into the sewers and take down the Drowners and Water Hags in this area. Continue down the stairs to the balcony and follow Joachim up the next flight of stairs and the ladder just beyond.

Once you're inside the mortuary activate your Witcher Senses and examine the bodies. You're specifically looking for the dwarf in the northeast area. Start the autopsy on the head, torso, hands, legs and genitals. After a cut-scene and a few decisions that don't have a direct impact on the quest, speak with Joachim before you leave to discuss Nathaniel.

Head over to the Bits District and explore the area to find Eustace. During the dialogue you can use Axii Delusion Sign Magic if you have it at level three. If not, you'll have to bride Eustace with 200 crowns to get information. Make your way back to the main road and continue onward to Tretogor Gate. Turn to the west and knock on the large door, then question the person who answers.

Activate your Witcher Senses and look around for bloodstains, a bonfire of statues, a sermon and a workshop door. Read the sermon then speak with Gus and search inside the workshop (if he didn't open the door already) for more bloodstains and an overturned chair. Speak with Gus once again, then head deeper into the Bits, close to the city wall.

Follow the lady in this area who shows you some leg, then pry the Concerned Citizen's Sermon off the wall. Activate your Witcher Senses once more to find blood on the ground, a footprint, formaldehyde and a brazier. Make an attempt to leave, only to be stopped and forced to fight. Make quick work of your assailants to see another cut-scene.

At some point you will be stopped by a guard. When this happens head back to the mortuary and speak with Hubert. Examine the body, then head over to the Vegelberg Estate near the Wheat Fields fast travel point. Talk to the guard, then Ingrid and follow her to Patricia's room. Once you reach the room you must chase down the assailant.

Head across the room, down the stairs and outside. Take down the dogs and guards that attack, then make your way toward the stairs for another cut-scene. Go back to the bedroom and search the corpse for a note, then head to the western docks back in Novigrad to reach Crippled Kate's brothel.

Go inside and ask around, then head upstairs to the top floor and make your way into the bedroom. Speak with Nathaniel and make a choice during the timed response. Your dialogue at this point doesn't matter, but after he says he's not the killer you have to make a choice that has some consequence.

If you state that he almost convinced you, you'll have to battle Nathaniel, then untie the woman. Going this route completes the quest, but you won't actually solve the murder. Luckily you can still remedy that. If you stumble upon another murder in the future, read the note on the body and you'll be able to complete the final portion of this quest.

If you tell Nathaniel to mind his manners, or you ask him who left the letter it leads to more dialogue instead of a fight. If you have Axii Delusion level three you can free the woman without harming Nathaniel. If not, you'll still end up having to kill him. Oh well!

Head deeper into the Novigrad Docks District and through the side door to the left of the gate. Speak with Hubert inside and tell him whatever you desire. No matter which dialogue option you select, he turns into a monster that must be killed. With the monster defeat head back to Vilmerius Hospital and speak with Dandelion to complete the quest properly.

Head to the Golden Sturgeon just west of the Town Square to find Ravik inside. You have a choice to make here. You can play a game of Gwent and if you win Ravik won't die. If you refuse to play, Ravik dies instantly. Either way you must kill the bandits after Ravik's fate is decided. Search the corpse for the John Natalis Gwent card if Ravik dies, or simply speak to him to obtain the item if he survives.

Make your way to the southwest corner of the Town Square to Caesar's house. Speak with Zoltan here then make a series of dialogue choices that do not impact the quest. Once Zoltan gives you the cue, head upstairs and use your Witcher Senses to search the room at the top.

Head to the next waypoint marked on the map. Follow Duke when he runs through the door and up the ladders. If you can catch him before he hits the sewers you can deal with him then and there. If not, turn right as you continue the chase then down five ladders to reach the entrance to the sewers. Head inside the sewer, but you can't engage Duke just yet. Instead, head right and take out the Drowners ahead. Use Aard Sign Magic on the wall to the northwest then continue into the room ahead.

Northeast of the Kingfisher Inn in an area known as The Bits, there are two potential bandits doing something to the ground. When they leave, activate your Witcher Senses and examine the area where they were meddling. Pick up the note here, then head south to the next location marked on your map, which is Crippled Kate's.

Find the red brick street and activate your Witcher Senses once more to find another loose brick in the corner. There's another note and a chest key to be found here. Collect the items, then head north to the Gildorf District and into the main square. There's a sewer grate near the Notice Board here. Drop down into the sewer, then head northeast until you reach a blocked off tunnel and two bodies. Open the chest nearby and collect the loot to complete the quest.
