Act II - Introduction

Welcome to Act II on Roche's side! You'll be lifting the curse from the king as well as learning a bit more about the mysterious witcher kingslayers. Along the way, you'll also infiltrate the ranks of conspirator's insurgency while working with the royal sorcerer.

Before all that, you'll be playing king Henselt who's on his way to meet with Aedirn nobility. After negotiations, a fight will ensue and that's when Henselt will invoke a terrible curse (after smashing that priest's head due to being enraged from the outcome of his duel with Saskia).

Right in the nick of time, Geralt arrives and defends the king from the onslaught of wraiths and restless ghosts with the help of Dethmold, the royal advisor and Roche. After getting back to the camp and once the situation settles down, you'll be free to do the quests as you please, and as always there's a recommended list for them assorted in a way to grant fluid questing process.
