Voref is a wolf-creature in the Swamp and the object of a trophy quest in Chapter III, for the Royal huntsman in the Trade Quarter. He is accompanied by other wolves, presumably his pack, but stands out from the pack because of his relatively large size (and the fact that he has a name).
- Some users have reported that Voref does not appear until after Vaska has told Geralt to seek out the Hierophant. This is definitely not always true: Voref has been seen in the Swamp (Chapter III) before this conversation with Vaska, or any other quest giver in Chapter 3 other than Triss.
- Voref is not available during the quest Reaping Time, possibly due to the fact that he roams the area where the peasants are forced to work during that quest. He appears both before the quest is taken and after the quest is finished.
- Voref is easily killed using strong-style silver sword.
- In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it notes vorefs are an old and powerful version of ulfhedinn, a stronger type of werewolf. While it's unclear if this indicates Voref in The Witcher is a werewolf, as killing him doesn't give werewolf fur, it might explain why he's sensitive to silver.
