The Price of Passage is an unmarked secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt where Geralt can encounter some guards trying to extort some coin out of him.


When traveling in Oxenfurt, you will be approached by two Redanian soldiers asking for a "war tax." They can be found under the archway leading from the Oxenfurt Harbor signpost to the marketplace. You have two options:

Option 1: Pay Them

This will cost you 50 Oren3 but earn a total of 15 Tw3 icon xp after the conversation ends. A few days later, you'll be able to find these guards on the western end of Novigrad Gate, where they'll once more ask for money, this time 100 Oren3. If you pay again you'll earn a total of 20 Tw3 icon xp this time and you'll never see them after this, but if you refuse you'll only earn 10 Tw3 icon xp and you may run into them on the eastern outskirts of Oxenfurt a few days later. If this is the case, they'll be angry at you for getting them into trouble. Regardless if you fight them with your fists or kill them with your sword, the quest will then end.

Option 2: Refuse to Pay

They will call their superior and accuse you of being a spy but the superior will not take the bait and will threaten to send them straight into battle for extorting money. The quest then finishes and you can be on your way. After some time, they can be encountered again east of Novigrad Gate (right next to two houses, close to the quest The Most Truest of Basilisks). You'll have the option to use Axii (and earn 40 Tw3 icon xp), pay them 50 Oren3 (for 5 Tw3 icon xp), or engage them in a fist fight.
