Trail of Echoes is an unmarked secondary quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that can be started in Kaer Morhen.

The XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level rewarded in this quest is unaffected by the ±5 level constraint and difficulty level.


Follow the road which leads northwest of the Kaer Morhen keep to the end, and enter the cave at the end of the path, the same cave one is sent to search through during the Scavenger Hunt: Wolf School Gear quest, which will begin the quest.

Geralt makes several comments, including that the cave was formerly used for the Trial of the Grasses, before Kaer Morhen was built, but is now infested by monsters.

In addition to killing the nekker warriors and a devourer, one must inspect the various pieces of equipment and read a list of old witcher candidates who underwent the Trial. Exploring the cave sufficiently and examining enough items ends the quest and rewards 25XP earned based on the Story and Swords! difficulty level.
