10 Of The Most Wholesome Things You Can Do In The Witcher 3. You wouldn’t think a game about killing monsters would be so touching, but Witcher 3 in the heart of the woods is exactly that.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is a monster-hunting adventure set on a continent wracked by crime, terror, and war. Everyone’s life is difficult because they are forced to live among monsters and strong men.
Despite the chaos and pain, Geralt manages to find a few moments of calm, which are typically small, happy moments, just like in the books. These happy times are spent with his closest friends and relatives, and they provide the witcher with a much-needed break from his daily routine. Some of these moments are linked to the main plot, while others are DLC or optional. Both of them are hearty and welcoming.
10 Of The Most Wholesome Things You Can Do In The Witcher 3
Fumigate Rats With Triss
After trekking across the wilds for the first half of The Witcher, Novigrad comes as a bit of a shock. Geralt is greeted by a witch on fire as he enters the area. Tensions are high, and everyone is suspicious and on the lookout.
Geralt runs into Triss, who has gone from being the king of Temeria’s counsellor to doing odd jobs. Fumigating rats from a factory is one of these tasks. Although the encounter ends in a trap, Geralt spends some time with Triss and has a peaceful moment with her while watching the rats flee.
Undo Geralt’s Wish
On Skellige, Geralt reunites with Yennefer, who asks for his assistance in locating a djinn. She employs the djinn to sever the ties that had bound them for years, thanks to a wish Geralt had made years before.
The voyage takes them through the sea to a shipwreck. Geralt and Yennefer catch the djinn, who unbinds Geralt and Yennefer by breaking the wish that had tied them together. As a result, the two are faced with a decision: continue their romance or pretend to be different. In any case, it’s a significant moment for the two, as it allows them to spend some quiet time together.
Be Rescued By A Friend
In Blood and Wine, if you make those choices, Geralt will end up in prison, most likely to be executed. He spends a month in jail before being released for no apparent reason.
This is shocking in and of itself because Geralt had not contacted anybody to inform them of his imprisonment. Dandelion, his friend who flew all the way to Toussaint to bail Geralt out of jail, is revealed to be his rescuer. It’s a touching and unexpected moment to see Dandelion go to such lengths to assist his mate.
Help Ciri Avenge Vesemir
Vesemir and Ciri have a bond that extends beyond that of teacher and student. While Ciri was a resident of Kaer Morhen, Vesemir assisted her in her training. During The Witcher 3’s prologue, we get a glimpse of their relationship. Vesemir nods off in class, while Ciri sneaks away to catch a train. Her admiration for the old witcher is evident when she proves she completed the mission he assigned. Vesemir’s death is all the more heartbreaking because of their love for each other.
Going To A Wedding With Shani
Geralt has the chance to reunite with an old friend, Shani, in Hearts of Stone. Shani invites Geralt to a wedding of a neighbour. The reception sequence is hilarious, not least because Geralt is possessed by a charismatic, flirty, and fun-loving spirit for the duration.
Diverse games, such as diving for ladies’ slippers and chasing pigs, are available at the reception. Spending time with Shani in such a laid-back setting, juggling between the spirit and Geralt, is a pleasant diversion from the horrors of life on the Continent. In the sense of a festival, the night of revelry is an opportunity to reconnect with old friends.
Reunite With Ciri
Geralt and Ciri eventually locate each other after thousands of hours of looking. Their reunion has all the payoff one can expect from such a significant event, and it really feels like a release and catharsis for the two. The found family of Geralt and Ciri is where players put a lot of their emotional investment in The Witcher.
Two people who are bound by fate and become separated, but eventually find each other. When the two actually hug, a flashback to their first encounter in the forest plays, and the feelings are the same. While time has passed, their love for each other has not. This without saying something.
Wreck Avallac’h’s Lab With Ciri
All who know Avallac’h, like Geralt and Ciri, believe he is a mystery. Ciri has faith in him as a friend, but Geralt does not. Ciri, Geralt, and Yennefer discover Avallac’h’s lab, which adds to the mystery.
Ciri’s bloodline is depicted on a tapestry in the lab, as well as sketches of her face and other eerie memorabilia. Avallac’h is clearly fascinated with Ciri, and the contents of the lab are profoundly disturbing to her. Geralt begins to “subtly” crack glass jars and equipment as a sign of support. In a moment where Geralt expresses his love for his daughter, the two laugh as they kill the lab and its contents.
Snowball Fight With Ciri
The Wild Hunt’s activities are both stressful and exhausting. After a snowfall, Geralt and Ciri find themselves with some free time at Kaer Morhen. What could be more fun than a snowball fight? As a result, the two have a touching scene in which they have an epic superpowered fight in the snow.
While Geralt has a chance to win, the look on Ciri’s face as she declares victory is a reward in and of itself. Playing in the snow with Ciri is a haven of calm in an otherwise chaotic world, and one of The Witcher 3’s most wholesome moments.
Saying Goodbye To Ciri
Ciri leaves Geralt to become Empress of Nilfgaard in the so-called “good” ending. It’s good because it means she’ll be able to make a real difference in her new role, but it also means she’ll have to say goodbye to Geralt.
The father and daughter battle a demon and go fishing in their final moments together. Ciri is conscious that their time together is coming to an end, and she reflects on her time with Geralt at Kaer Morhen. For a brief moment, Geralt gives her a piggyback ride through the snowy forests, and it seems as though this perfect moment will never end.
Commission Ciri A Witcher’s Sword
The Witcher 3 has a number of different endings, each with a different degree of satisfaction. Ciri living and becoming a witcher alongside Geralt is one of the happier endings.
The series starts with Ciri’s death being announced to Emperor Emhyr. Geralt then receives a beautiful silver witcher’s sword that he had ordered. It’s safe to believe the sword belongs to Geralt before he visits a tavern and encounters a veiled young woman who turns out to be Ciri. Geralt surprises and delights her by giving her the sword. Rather than abandoning Geralt, they plot their next contract and future as monster hunters.
