Mutual of Beauclair's Wild Kingdom is a secondary quest in the Blood and Wine expansion. It involves a timed decision at a critical point.

Contract for a Witcher/Witchers: Caravan Escort[edit | edit source]

To a witcher or witchers:
The Beauclair Coopers’ Guild is seeking an individual or individuals willing to escort a merchant convoy through an area threatened by the "Great White Terror." More information can be obtained from Gaston Legaff at the merchants' camp in the forests to the north of Coronata vineyard.
Maugrim Poullain, Undersecretary for Threats and Risk Management, Beauclair Coopers’ Guild.

Journal entry[edit | edit source]

While wandering around Toussaint, Geralt did not neglect his vocation and the true core of his existence, namely, pursuing and slaying monsters. Having found a notice on a notice board, posted by a merchant guild beset by some beast, the witcher decided to go to the appointed spot to learn about the details of the matter.
At his destination, Geralt found a ransacked camp. It looked as if it had been destroyed recently. He also happened on the bodies of two merchants. Their wounds had clearly been caused by a monster of ample size.
While combing the surrounding area, the witcher happened on Count Borhis di Salvaress, who claimed the monster Geralt was tracking was a silver basilisk – the last surviving specimen of the subspecies which also happened to be the count's wildly roaming pet, a pet the nobleman desperately wished the witcher would spare.
To make matters worse, it turned out this basilisk was also the quarry of a small company of Crinfrid Reavers.
While tracking the basilisk, Geralt found yet another corpse.
As things stood, it seemed a band of Crinfrid Reavers was also hunting the basilisk. They had taken on a contract from a local guild and in their arrogance collected the fee in advance.
Yet the mercenaries somehow took an immediate liking to Geralt, which I find hard to believe, as I am quite familiar with their type…
They offered to join forces with the witcher in fighting the beast and promised to share their reward with him once it was brought down.
Geralt decides not to slay the basilisk:
Geralt decided he would not slay the basilisk.
The count in turn pledged to take more precautions toward safeguarding merchants passing through his pet's feeding range. He also promised that Geralt would acquire ingredients at special prices from herbalists he knew.
Geralt decides to slay the basilisk:
Geralt decided that the basilisk had to die. It mattered little that it might have been the last of its subspecies, for fundamentally it remained a dangerous beast. Count di Salvaress was distraught. He threatened that the witcher would never see another reasonable price at the shops of the herbalists he knew.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Geralt can decide to kill the beast or let it live. Letting it live will yield a reward without a fight.
    • Letting it live will anger the Cooper's Guild, who then post wanted notices for Geralt, and urge merchants to raise their prices when dealing with Geralt.
    • This also prompts competing posters put up by the Count's people urging society at large to give Geralt better prices.
  • Geralt can also accept additional coin from the Count (50 crown(s)).
  • The name of this quest is a reference to the long-running American television nature series: "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom".
