Strumpet in Distress is an unmarked secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.


Head south of the Novigrad Docks signpost to find a man threatening a strumpet. If you intervene the woman tells Geralt to leave, as she can handle things. You now have a few options:

  • use Axii (requires Delusion level 1, earning 30 Tw3 icon xp)
  • threaten the hooded man
  • tell the woman you can make the man leave (earns 10 Tw3 icon xp)
  • leave as requested

Unless you leave as requested, it's soon revealed the two were merely acting to get in the mood and Geralt just killed it. The quest will then end, with slightly different comments depending on what was chosen.
