Below you’ll find every last bit of content waiting to be sucked up around the city and beyond, broken down into the various areas from Oxenfurt to Novigrad city center itself. We’ve also dedicated a separate section for each of the challenging Contract missions you can take on here.

A barn full of problems and an empty chicken coop
A barn full of problems
Head to Carsten, a small village northwest of Oxenfurt and southwest of the Vegelbud Residence, and you’ll find a pair of peasants standing in front of a barricaded barn. Talk to them and then do what you do: show those four demons who’s boss nice and quick.
Head just east of Honeyfill Meadworks and look for a Rambling Old Lady. Offer to help her and use your Witcher Senses to follow the clues to her final destination. Talk to the children, then return to the old woman and suggest that they come live with her.
Little Red and the hospitality of Novigrad
Head to Yantra, a small town between two lakes and northeast of Novigrad. Around noon you will see a group of villagers gathered at one end of the village having a meeting. Ask them what’s bothering them and then agree to help them with their bandit problems.
Wait until nightfall and Little Red will appear. Talk to her and then decide if you want to hire her or leave her alone. If you attack, she turns into a werewolf, so get ready for a fight.
Head northwest from Yantra and you’ll come across a couple of guys camping on the side of the road. Join them for a few drinks, then a few more, then keep going until you wake up stripped of all your worldly possessions – wow!
Return to Yantra and use Witcher Senses to discover their (not very good) hiding place, recover your goods, and then maybe even humiliate them.
On the mainland, east of the top of the lower island of Oxenfurt, is a solitary cabin. The farmer has lost his horse. He accepts the job and then uses your Witcher Senses to follow the trail, which eventually reaches a small camp.
You can pay 100 crowns to get the horse back at this point, use Axii to get it back, or fight everyone for it. Whichever option you choose, take the horse back to its owner when you’re done. Ideally you want the old gray one, but any horse you bring back will complete the quest.
Strangers in the Night
Head west from Carsten, cross a small bridge and head north. You will come across a small campsite with some people talking. Join, tell them your name, and then ask if there’s anything new. Suddenly the conversation turns to accusations and someone is going to die; Pick a side if you want, but either way you’ll be rewarded with a diagram.
A warm welcome
On the road southwest of Wheatfield, some refugees ran into a patrol. You can kill the guards, pay 100 crowns, use Axii to persuade the patrol to let them pass, or let the refugees figure it out themselves. If you provide help, you will be told the location of a hidden treasure near Downwarren.
