If Geralt does A Matter of Life and Death: In 1272, he bumped into Triss once more, but this time in the company of Geralt at the masquerade ball at the Vegelbud Residence. However, he appeared disgruntled seeing Triss there and when the sorceress offered for him to join her and the other fleeing mages, he outright refused help from one he saw as a "lame duck" leading the group. Later on, Triss revealed she believed it wasn't that he didn't like her but that he'd rather be in charge than have Triss as his leader.
- If Geralt doesn't intervene at the burning pyre: Moritz was subsequently killed.
- If Geralt intervenes at burning pyre: The witcher saved Moritz from being burned at the stake and the mage went and found the other fleeing mages.
- Sometimes Moritz is invisible on the burning pyre but can still be freed as normal by putting the fire out with aard or striking a guard to make them hostile, making the rest of the scene play out like normal.
