Witcher 3 Blood and Wine Romances

Witcher 3 Blood and Wine Romances

We show you who Geralt can romance and how in the Blood and Wine DLC.

Witcher 3 is famous for its depictions of romance, adult relationships, and everything else implied by that phrase. The Blood and Wine DLC expansion is no different, giving Geralt new opportunities to meet potential love interests. We'll show you who you can romance, and how to do it.

Warning: the following contains some plot spoilers for Blood and Wine.

Which Characters Can You Romance in Blood and Wine?

Similarly to Hearts of Stone, Blood and Wine offers only a single possible romance, though you might argue it's barely worthy of the term: Syanna, the scheming mastermind behind the game's central mystery. While you can't form a proper relationship with Syanna like you might with Yennefer or Triss, you can have a brief night of passion, more comparable to your time with Keira Metz in the base game.

How to Romance Syanna

Your opportunity to spend a brief night with Syanna comes during the quest "Beyond Hill and Dale," after climbing the beanstalk and killing the cloud giant. Syanna asks Geralt to "fulfil her last wish," a euphemism for… well, exactly what you think. As Geralt you can either agree or decline this particular invitation, but it's your one chance for any sort of tryst with the duchesses' sister.

Does Romancing Syanna Change the Ending of Blood and Wine?

You'd think it would, but no, mainly because Geralt isn't really the focus of the plot or any of the other character's core motivations. Syanna wants to kill Anna, Anna wants to kill Dettlaff, and Dettlaff is basically just confused and angry most of the time. Geralt is just stuck in the middle of this vengeance triangle because he was hired to be there, so any physical relationship you have with Syanna won't change the basic plot or what any of them want to achieve.

The option to romance Syanna doesn't occur until Geralt goes to the Land of a Thousand Fables. Doesn't seem very child-friendly to me. | Joel Franey/USgamer, CD Projekt Red
