Nilfgaardian Garrison is a location in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.


It once belonged to White Orchard's baronet, Ignatius Verrieres, but when the baronet learned his son, Florian, was a homosexual and in a relationship with Mislav, Ignatius banished Mislav from the castle. Upset at this, Florian then committed suicide and Ignatius turned to drinking, letting the fortress fall into a state of ruin.

It was later used as a fortification by the Temerian Army to guard the Ismena river and the road running from White Orchard to Vizima, but it fell to the Nilfgaardians after their victory at the battle of White Orchard in 1272. The garrison then served as an outpost for the Nilfgaardian commanding officer, Captain Peter Saar Gwynleve.

Map Description[]

There's a locked door that you can kind the key to on the ledge pictured. To get there, turn left inside the gate and go up until you see a ledge, drop off it and there will be a chance to use Aard. Going through here will allow you to get to the hanging point and check a corpse for the key. Although you can unlock and go through the door, running of the ledge lands you in water near another loot chest.
