Content of the article: "Witcher 3 Ultimate Gwent Savepoint"
How ‘bout a round of Gwent? How ‘bout 23 uninterrupted Gwent matches against unique players with unique rewards?
On my second playthrough I decided to give this Gwent thing a fair shake, and immediately got hooked. I hated the idea of running out of meaningful Gwent matches to play, so decided to create the “Ultimate Gwent Savepoint” for the base game. Something I could always come back to and be able to play as much Gwent as I could handle. Warning – minor spoilers below on some quests and characters.
- Gwent: Playing Innkeeps – already played Stepjan and Olivier (must do before Now or Never side quest) but wait on the last player – 1 match
- Gwent: Velen Players – already played the Bloody Baron (must do before Return to Crookback Bog) but wait on the other three players – 3 matches
- Gwent: Big City Players – ready but not started – 4 matches
- Gwent: Old Pals – ready but not started – 4 matches
- Gwent: Skellige Style – ready but not started – 5 matches
- Nilfgaardian Nobleman in Vizima – not played yet – 1 match
- A Dangerous Game side quest – complete to the point of saving Ravik (if you do the other objectives first you will already have the Fringilla and Faoiltiarna cards in your deck available to use) – 1 match
- High Stakes – ready but not started – 4 matches
A little more detail on the necessary setup:
- Main questline progressed through Echoes of the Past – must get to this point to open Ermion for Gwent: Skellige Style
- Novigrad Triss/Dijkstra side questlines complete – must complete through A Deadly Plot to open Thaler for Gwent: Old Pals / Gwent: Playing Thaler
- Following the Thread side quest – progressed to the point of talking to Lambert at the Nowhere Inn
- Practicum in Advanced Alchemy side quest – complete to open Gremist for Gwent: Skellige Style
- Shock Therapy side quest – complete to gain a good card
Once you get there, make a dedicated save that you can always come back to. Then you can come back and play through however you want, whenever you want!
As a sidenote for anyone who gets totally obsessed, Sasha in the High Stakes tournament is by far the toughest opponent in the game. I beat her once before completing all the other Gwent quests, but I’m planning to go back and make a special save immediately before that match with an otherwise complete card collection so I can try different decks and strategies anytime. Just for the challenge.
Mmhmm… smirking nod
- First playthrough done
- Can anyone give me a list of the most important and interesng side quests in Witcher 3? Urgency of the main quest just breaks the immersion for me.
- Could use some guidance regarding Gwent. Longtime player, brand new to this card/mini-game
