Love's Cruel Snares is a secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Walkthrough Edit

After clearing out the abandoned site north of Condyle, a woman will appear crying nearby. Prerequisite: If she doesn't appear, clear out the bandit camp (killing all the pirates) on the peninsula to the west and she should appear then.

Talk to her to learn her fiancé disappeared while checking his snares, then follow the tracks nearby until you find a pack of wild dogs around a trap and a body. Once they're killed, examine the body to confirm it's the woman's betrothed, then head back to let her know the bad news.

She'll try to give you a reward, which you can accept or refuse. If you refuse you'll get 60 Tw3 icon xp, otherwise accepting it will give 20 Tw3 icon xp and 40 Oren3. No matter what you chose, the quest will then end and the woman will head off to where her fiancé's body is.

Journal entry Edit

While wandering Velen Geralt happened across a woman who was weeping violently. She explained that her betrothed had gone into the woods to check his traps but never returned - and she feared the worst. Geralt calmed her and promised to check what had become of her beloved.
When Geralt returned from the woods, he did not bring good news with him. The woman saw this in his face at once. Though her hands trembled and her eyes welled with bitter tears, she did not forget to pay the witcher what he was owed and thank him with some kind words.

Objectives Edit

  • Find the woman's missing fiancé in the woods using your Witcher Senses.
  • Deliver the bad news to the girl.
