Cadaverine is obtained from the bodies of drowned dead, devourers, drowners, alghouls and graveirs.



  • Geralt can loot the bodies of drowners for cadaverine and ginatz's acid before he has a Bestiary entry for drowners or ingredient entries for those items. However, drowner remains will not contain drowner brain tissue until Geralt has the journal entries.
  • Geralt has a conversation about the poisonous nature of cadaverine with a peasant woman in the village of Murky Waters in Chapter IV.
  • Although this item does not appear in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it is mentioned by Geralt in the quest Contract: The Merry Widow, helping Geralt to find the ghoul.
