Note: You will gain 300 XP after talking to the first woman on top of the amount given after talking to the person.
7 Talk to Vespula. Her location is marked below Gate of the Hierarch.

12 Talk to Rose var Attre. She is located east of St. Gregory's Bridge.
13 Talk to the guard captain in front of the Var Attre villa. You can tell him you are the new swordplay instructor if you talked to Zoltan before hand.
If you did not talk to Zoltan about Rose, you will need to find another way in. Follow the wall on the left side of the villa until you see the angel statue below you. Go down and follow the cliff path. You will need to jump a gap and climb up ledges to get inside the garden. You will find Rose (Edna her twin) right outside.
Another path is through the sewers. Go to the grate next to the stairs located south of the villa. Follow the northern sewer passageway, you will encounter a Water Hag and a pair of Drowned Dead. Slay them. Continue until you reach the exit and climb the rocks to the left and enter the garden from there.
14 Follow the guard. Grab a wooden practice sword. Continue following the guard.
15 You can either beat Rose in the duels or let her win. Beating her the first time requires you to get her HP down to half. Beating her the second time requires you to empty her HP. You will gain 150 XP.
16 Head to the Molly marker. She is located southeast of St. Gregory's Bridge.
17 Meet with Morvran at the Vegelbuds estate. It is located east of Novigrad.
You can choose to race Morvran. Beating him at the race will earn you the Superior Racing Saddle.
18 Talk to Molly. You will receive 150 XP
You can head back to Novigrad on your own, or you can talk to Morvran and fast travel back.
19 Talk to Zoltan. He will still be in the Rosemary and Thyme.
20 Go to the Kingfisher Inn after sundown. It is located north of Hierarch Square.
