Decisions which impact the political landscape[edit | edit source]

Minor endings[edit | edit source]

  • Reason of State: Who rules the North?
    • If Geralt ignores this quest completely, Radovid becomes ruler of Novigrad and Velen and continues his plan to eradicate all mages and non-humans.
    • If Geralt sides with Dijkstra, the latter becomes ruler of the North imposing a regime of fear and reduced liberty, but industry prospers.
    • If Geralt sides with Vernon Roche and Ves, Temeria is allowed some degree of freedom, becoming a vassal state of the Nilfgaardian Empire.
  • Reason of State: Does the Emperor of Nilfgaard live or die?
    • If Geralt sides with Vernon Roche and Ves, Emhyr turns his attention to dissent at home, wiping out the traitors with extreme prejudice.
    • If either Radovid or Dijikstra ends up ruling the North, the Nilfgaardian populace rises up and kills him.
  • King's Gambit: Who becomes the ruler of Skellige?
    • If Geralt backs Cerys, Skellige becomes much more peaceful and prosperous.
    • If Geralt backs Hjalmar, Skellige becomes bolder and embarks on a bloody campaign against Nilfgaard.
    • If Geralt ignores the quest completely, Svanrige establishes a totalitarian monarchy on Skellige.
  • Romance choices: What happens to Geralt?
    • If Geralt chooses Triss Merigold over Yennefer, the two lovers move to Kovir where Triss accepts to become advisor to the king. Geralt lives in comfort and luxury, with the occasional Witcher Contract.
    • If Geralt chooses Yennefer over Triss, the pair ride off into the sunset and happily ever after.
    • If Geralt foolishly tried to romance them both, he ends up with neither.

Variable minor endings to major quests[edit | edit source]

  • The Whispering Hillock: What happens to the Bloody Baron?
  • Haunted House: What happens to Sara the Godling?
    • If Geralt makes a deal with Sara, she and Corinne become housemates.
    • If Geralt forces Sara out of the house, she leaves Novigrad and joins Johnny on Bald Mountain.
  • For the Advancement of Learning: What happens to Keira?
    • If Geralt convinces Keira to go to Kaer Morhen, she and Lambert get together and ride off into the sunset.
    • If Geralt lets Keira go to Radovid, then Keira is burned at the stake. A new quest: "A Final Kindness" is unlocked during Blindingly Obvious.
  • Get Junior: What happens to Whoreson Junior?
    • If Geralt kills Whoreson Junior, Dudu takes his place and begins a kinder, gentler approach.
    • If Geralt spares Whoreson Junior, Junior loses influence and lives out his days a pitiful shadow of his former self.
  • Now or Never: What happens to mages in general?
    • If Geralt leads the mages to the ship, they successfully escape Novigrad, but violence against non-humans escalates sharply.
    • If Geralt fails to get the mages to the ship, or ignores the quest, they are slaughtered indiscriminately.
