For the Advancement of Learning Walkthrough

Objectives
1 Travel to Fyke Isle. Get to the tower and receive 50 XP when you get there.
2 You will have 3 choices. Each choice will determine Keira's fate. See For the Advancement of Learning Choices and Best Choice section for more information.

For the Advancement of Learning Choices and Best Choice

Killing Keira

If you choose the dialogue choices, [You used me] then [I don't like two-faced serpernts]. Your only options will be [Give me the notes] or [I don't have time for this]. Choosing the first one will make you fight Keira and you will have to kill her. The other dialogue options that will result in you fighting her will be [I won't let you do that], [Notes first. Hand them over] and [Give me the notes].

Killing her will give you 200 XP. She will not be available to help during the quest The Battle of Kaer Morhen.

Letting Keira Go to Radovid

If you choose any of the dialogue options that will let you leave the conversation, Keira will decide to go to Radovid with the notes. Letting her go to Radovid will give you 100 XP.

Instead of making a deal, Radovid instead decides to execute her. The side quest A Final Kindness will be available later on.

Send Keira to Kaer Morhen

Choosing [What's with the Notes] then either of the choices will give you either [It's suicide] or [Thousands may die. It'll be on your head]. Either of the two will give you the choice [Go to Kaer Morhen]. This choice will send her to Kaer Morhen for 100 XP.

You can also ask her for the notes after. She will be available to help in the quest The Battle of Kaer Morhen.

Best Choice

Keira leaving for Kaer Morhen
Choosing to send her to Kaer Morhen is the best decision. This is the only decision where Keira lives. Because she lives and helps during The Battle of Kaer Morhen, she will save Lambert from death.

In her ending she will be known as the one who found the cure to the Catriona plague and Lambert will become her lover.
