The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [ACT 1 – VELEN] Hunting a Witch (VIDEO)


After speaking with the old lady in Midcopse there are three different ways you can find out where the Witch is located by speaking to certain people.


OPTION 1: Speak to the man near the ArmourerPay him 50 crowns to get him to talk


Use Axii Delusion Level 2 on him
OPTION 2: Speak to the sweepersNearby you will find a group of women sweeping outside. If you easdrop they become suspicious but afterwards they will tell you where she is if you keep your distance. 

This can be helpful if you haven't leveled up Axii and don't want to waste money
OPTION 3: Speak to the war veteranHe is near the west entrance of the village sitting by a tree. Possibly the easiest option, you won't have to do anything to get him to disclose the location.


​The path is very well laid out and not too hard to find, the only notable obstacle being agroup of Nekkers but they are relatively easy to kill.

GAMER TIP: Search her entire house including the basement there are tons of useful items and diagrams scattered around that can help you upgrade and craft new gear.
