Loc Muinne is a city built on a lake along the Pontar river amidst the foothills of the Blue Mountains. It belonged to the vrans for ages before they died out. It was rebuilt by the elves but later it was sacked by Milan Raupenneck, along with Est Haemlet. It's said that during the vrans' reign, before the climate changed, the Pontar flowed all year and flowers still bloomed on the nearby slopes even by Velen.[1]

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

Loc Muinne is a major location where the events of Chapter III take place in The Witcher 2 where a peace summit of the Northern Kingdoms takes place.


Journal Entry

Not much apart from memories of its former glory remain of Loc Muinne, an elven city situated along the upper reaches of the Pontar, amidst the peaks of the Blue Mountains. It must at one time have been a breathtaking sight, emerging from the morning mists... Today only white ruins mark where it once proudly stood. Centuries ago it was here that the sorcerer Geoffrey Monck brought with him the Sources, a group of human children with a gift for the Power, to hand them over to the elven Sages for training. He managed to overcome the distrust of this Elder Race, and it seemed that a path to coexistence and cooperation between humans and elves had been opened. Yet history took an altogether different course. A few years later Redanian armies massacred Loc Muinne's population, killing all the elves, regardless of gender or age. Thus began a war that ended with Aelirenn's uprising and the massacre at Shaerrawedd, after which most of the surviving elves retreated east into the inaccessible Blue Mountains. This example, dear reader, readily shows that but the slightest bit of effort can summarily spoil even the best of relations.


  • If Geralt spared the young Aryan La Valette during the Prologue, the two meet again in Loc Muinne where Aryan has decided to attend the summit of the mages and probably hopes for a part in future events in the politics of the Northern Kingdoms. Aryan also mentions the disappearance of his sister Anaïs, saying she has been kidnapped. If Geralt previously sided with Iorveth, he would not know what Aryan is talking about, nor have the opportunity to help the child. Aryan does not make any mention of his little brother Boussy, who also disappeared (if you took Roche's path, you can learn he was killed in an accident).
