Secondary quest

Dice Poker: The Professional is an optional sub-quest of A Game of Dice. It is spawned once Geralt has beaten four novice players. The stakes are higher, but so are the takings.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Quest Items dice.png

Beat the professionals one by one as you meet them during your journeys. The quest ends when you have beaten four professionals. You can then approach the first Sharper level player — at the same time, the Dice Poker: The Sharper quest is started.

Notes[edit | edit source]

You only have to best four out of a possible eight professional players, so your journal entries may not include all the entries you see below, nor will the phases you do see necessarily be in the same order as seen here.

Phases[edit | edit source]

Note: The 200 XP increments listed below are only earned for the first four players, whichever four Geralt plays and wins against first. The rest are listed for information purposes.

Too Good for Me[edit | edit source]

Professionals do not play with novices. I must concentrate on weaker opponents. I will not play with professionals as long as I am a novice.

Professionals[edit | edit source]

I'm doing good with poker and after a conversation with Zoltan I decided it's time to become a professional. The rules are simple — if I win against four professionals I will be recognized as one of them. Time to find them. To become a professional poker player I must win against four other professional players.

Munro Rolls the Dice[edit | edit source]

Munro, a friend of Zoltan, is a professional poker player. I wonder if he is as good as they say? I can play poker with Munro.

I beat Munro. I will look for another professional. I will look for another professional. (200 XP)

Thaler has a good poker face but he was no match for my look. I beat him and I want to challenge someone better. I beat Thaler. It's time to play with another professional. (200 XP)

Maybe De Wett knows his way around politics but he knows nothing of poker. Next, please. I beat Count de Wett. I'm going to look for another professional. (200 XP)
