Contract: Deadly Delights Tips and Strategies

Questing Tips

Succubus Mutagen

This quest is the one of the two only chances that you can get a Succubus mutagen in the whole game. If you decide to spare the succubus then the only other chance to get a Succubus mutagen is on the quest Practicum in Advanced Alchemy.

Combat Strategies


  • Use your Steel Sword since a Silver Sword, even coated with Hybrid Oil is ineffective against her.
  • Use the Axii or Aard Signs to interrupt her spell casting and give yourself an opening to attack.
  • Throw Dimeritium bombs to prevent her from using some of her spells.
