List of Contents
|Quest Location||Herbalist's Hut Deadwight Wood Erde|
Go to Brunwich and pick up the Notice Contract: Apprentice Gone Missing! on the Notice Board.
You cannot miss or fail this quest even if you finish all the Main Quests in the game.
|1||Talk to the Herbalist in the Herbalist's Hut just outside of Oxenfurt.|
|2||Go to the quest marker and investigate the clues using your Witcher Senses.|
|3||Investigate around the village and talk to the elderly woman.|
|4||Choose how to deal with the elderly couple.|
|5||Report back to the herbalist.|
In this quest the only choice you will get is to either spare or kill the elderly couple for committing cannibalism.
If you choose to spare them, Geralt will make them vow to never eat human flesh again. If you choose this and reveal to the herbalist that his apprentice got eaten by cannibals, he will send alghouls to kill the elderly couple when you come back after some time.
If you choose to kill them, you will do combat against the elderly couple. The herbalist will be happier if you choose this and reveal to him that his appretince got eaten by cannibals.
The best choice here is to Kill the Cannibals, after killing them you can loot them for the key to their house and get a bit more loot inside their house.
When exploring the whole village, do not forget to check behind the eldery couple's house to discover their larder and the missing Halfling.
|Humans Weaknesses and Loot|
We do not recommend doing this quest. The benefits that you gain from this quest are not very useful for your progression in the game. Finishing this quest will be mainly for the sake of the game's completion and to have more knowledge about the Witcher World.
