The Heroes' Pursuits: Fayrlund is a secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It is one of the four Heroes' Pursuits quests which involve horse racing.

Walkthrough Edit

On the road east-northeast of Fayrlund, and far south of the Rannvaig signpost, you'll find people getting ready to race. Talk to the race master here and he'll set up the race when you're ready.

This race is simple but short: you'll race along the road which at one point rides along the edge of the cliff and across a small bridge, before reaching the finish line on the other side of Fayrlund. The main kicker is to watch out for Red Rikka: she's clearly faster than your other opponent. However, she does make a few flaws that might give you enough room to get past her if you're having trouble.

Once you come in first, you'll gain 25 Tw3 icon xp, 50 Oren3, and the Zerrikanian saddlebags.

Journal entry Edit

There are various ways to honor the gods: prayer, bloody offerings butchered on altars marked with pentagrams and donating to temples, to name a few. Skelligers, however, have their own, unique way of doing so. Since they value physical strength and warrior spirit above all else, they organize horse races in the goddess' name. Geralt decided to take part.
The goddess smiled on the witcher and saw fit for him to win the race. But this was not the end of the tournament - a final challenge awaited him on the isle of Hindarsfjall.

Objectives Edit

  • Go to where the race starts.
  • Win the race!
