Primary quest

Vizima Confidential is basically the framing quest for Chapter II of The Witcher. It spawns and is fed by several other quests in that chapter of the story.

Walkthrough[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

You need to do a lot of running around to dig under the dirt and gather clues and find evidence to either implicate or clear Declan Leuvaarden, Golan Vivaldi, Καλκσταιν, Ramsmeat, Thaler, or Vincent Meis. Depending on the order you do your snooping about, and the choices you make, you can end up with different characters becoming your prime suspect. Basically gather the evidence and then talk to your suspects, check in with Raymond, and then do it all over again. Possibly several times until you either end up doing an autopsy on the body of the crown witness, or entering the cemetery crypt. (It is possible to do both, but not necessary)

Important note: If you want to do the autopsy, then you must not talk to anyone about the fact that Azar is posing as Raymond prior to doing it (if you have that information). Otherwise it becomes unnecessary.

The Suspects[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Declan Leuvaarden: There are two ways to clear the merchant. Finding out he is the one who pays for Salamander badges is one way to clear him. The other way is to complete the A Gravedigger's Gratitude quest first. Then you find the evidence in the crypt in the cemetery which clears everyone.
Golan Vivaldi: Zoltan Chivay will tell you all about the dwarf and give you the evidence when you ask him about Vivaldi's bank.
Καλκσταιν: "Raymond's" number one suspect and therefore the hardest to clear of suspicion. Depending on the results (because you can go very, very wrong), the autopsy proves Καλκσταιν innocent. Alternatively, finding Raymond's body in the crypt achieves that as well, it clears everyone and impicates Azar Javed.
Ramsmeat: You will need to complete the A Gravedigger's Gratitude quest first. You find the evidence in the Crypt in the cemetery. Alternatively, talk to him after completing The Crown Witness and be conciliatory no matter how angry he is. The dialogue option of "I see, settling scores in the underworld" leads to Γκέραλτ concluding that Ramsmeat is innocent and talking to him again finishes the quest.
Thaler: Coleman, Golan Vivaldi, Shani, Vincent Meis and a "mysterious man" will all give you some of the evidence. If you obtain the Vizima cemetery pass from Vincent, you may also prove him innocent by doing the quests: A Gravedigger's Gratitude or Anatomy of a Crime. In the first quest, you find Raymond's corpse in the Vizima cemetery, proving the detective's dead and Azar must have assumed his identity, which clears everyone. The second one, you discover insect eggs inside the dead criminal's skull, again implicating Azar. Either way, you clear Thaler.
Vincent Meis: Coleman will provide you the evidence, if he is not killed and you complete The Rat and claim your reward from him on the Vizima dike. Alternatively, talking to Vincent after killing the Salamandra at the warehouse and accepting his word instead of going for maximum suspicion will clear Vincent. This path does not require Coleman at all and Γκέραλτ need not even leave the Temple Quarter.

Helpful weasel[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Coleman: Not a nice guy, but he is never really a suspect either. Visit him early in the Chapter (if you want to use him and you allowed the Scoia'tael to take the weapons in Chapter I, Strangers in the Night), before you visit Raymond and take The Rat quest. After completing the necessary monster-slaying, you will not be able to find Coleman. You must talk to the innkeeper at the Hairy Bear and ask about Coleman's whereabouts. He will tell you to go to the Vizima dike. As soon as you enter the Vizima dike, you will find Coleman talking to the guards. Speak to him and he will tell you what is he is doing there and also provide the evidence to clear Vincent Meis. Then you can visit Raymond.

Once you have found all the evidence, you need to talk with the investigator, who will ask you to kill Ramsmeat. Again, this will depend on what you have done earlier. You may indeed have to go and kill Ramsmeat, or possibly just bluff. Then inform Raymond about the good news. He will offer to meet you near the tower in the swamp. He will also give you a sephirot, the last sephirah required to open the tower.

That meeting at the tower ends Chapter II, so do what you need to do first. It is not tragic in this Chapter as the Swamp and Συνοικία του Ναού remain accessible in Chapter III, as do all the characters, so quests can bleed into the next chapter on this one occasion.

Notes[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

  • Doing the autopsy early can result in bypassing several of the earlier phases of the quest.

Phases[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

A Trap[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

It seems that the Salamanders have a secret agent who set a trap for me. I must find out who he is as soon as possible. First I need to interrogate the prisoner being held by the city guards. I should talk to the jailer Jethro. I must learn the identity of the Salamandra secret agent. The prisoner held by the city guards seems to know something, so I should talk to Jethro.

Time to get back to Raymond and summarize our discoveries. It's time to get back to Raymond and conclude our discoveries. (500 XP)

The Alchemist's Trust[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

There is strong evidence against Ramsmeat and the alchemist Καλκσταιν. Raymond will take care of the former. I must gain the alchemist's trust. In order to do so, I have to get an important assignment from him. I must go to Καλκσταιν the alchemist and gain his trust.

The Alchemist's Trust[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

The Suspects[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

The private investigator decided to lay low. He gave me a list of suspects — I should uncover them as soon as possible, while Raymond attracts the Salamander's attention. I must cross-question all the suspects. I'll start with Ramsmeat. (List of suspects + 500 XP)

Ramsmeat / Thaler / Declan Leuvaarden[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Ramsmeat[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I spoke with Ramsmeat, but his confession alone is insufficient. To get a full picture I need to interrogate other suspects. I should question Thaler the fence. and/or

the resolute boy, Raymond's messenger

The Meeting[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Raymond sent a messenger — he wants to meet me as he has gained some new information. I wonder how he will react to my discoveries. I must meet up with Raymond.

Autopsy or Bluff[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Autopsy path:

Autopsy[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Raymond was not interested in my discoveries — small wonder, there is a newer clue. To move this investigation forward, I must perform an autopsy. The body is probably in the gravedigger's possession and Shani will help me with the autopsy. I cannot move the investigation forward until I finish the autopsy.

Closer and Closer[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

The autopsy explained a lot of things. I am very close now. Time to go to Raymond's house. Time to go to Raymond's house.

Autopsy Results[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Autopsy implicated Καλκσταιν: I told Raymond about what we found during the autopsy. The evidence points to Καλκσταιν. The detective needs some time to analyze the evidence. or

Right conculsion

Azar Javed[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Autopsy implicated Azar: As a result of the autopsy, I learned that Azar Javed impersonates Raymond. I will go to him, pretend the autopsy proved nothing and see what happens. I will go to Azar posing as the private eye. I'll pretend the autopsy proved nothing and see what happens. and

Subterfuge[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I told "Raymond" that I discovered nothing during the autopsy. I will not tell him that he is Azar. I must find a way to lure Azar into a trap. or

No autopsy is necessary:

Bluff[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

There is no need to perform the autopsy. I know that Azar Javed is pretending to be Raymond. I will go to him, pretend the autopsy proved nothing and see what happens. I'll try to lure Azar, posing as the private eye, into a trap.

Duped or not[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Γκέραλτ is in the dark:

The Ramsmeat Contract[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I promised Raymond to eliminate the boss of the Salamander's armed forces — Ramsmeat. I have to prepare well, as he seems to be a tough opponent. I have to kill Ramsmeat.

Ramsmeat is Dead[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I killed Ramsmeat. Time to report to Raymond. Time to report to Raymond.

The Tower[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Opening the Tower[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Raymond gave me a Sephirah which forms a part of the key to the tower. All that remains is to take what's inside the tower and we'll get that bastard Καλκσταιν once and for all. I have to open the tower.

The Secret Within[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I have found the magic treatise that Καλκσταιν desired so badly. For years, it lay safely hidden away in the tower in the swamp. Azar is in for an unpleasant surprise. I must prepare to face Azar Javed.

The Truth Revealed[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

It's unbelievable. Azar Javed played me for a fool all this time. He killed Raymond and impersonated him. How could I've been so stupid? Azar Javed impersonated Raymond. (1500 XP) or

Γκέραλτ knows the deal:

A Trap[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Azar, who impersonated Raymond, is behind all this. I must lure him into a trap. I will tell "Raymond" that I killed Ramsmeat.

The Tower[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I told Raymond that I had killed Ramsmeat. He is going to wait for me near the tower. I must prepare to face Azar.

Fake No More[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

The Secret Within[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I have found the magic treatise that Καλκσταιν desired so badly. For years, it lay safely hidden away in the tower in the swamp. I must prepare to face Azar Javed.

Azar's Escape[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

I uncovered Azar and his devious trick perfectly. It's a shame that he managed to get away. But, as king Desmond used to say: "there is luck in leisure and if you're born to hang, you won't drown." I uncovered Azar's ploy, but he managed to get away. (2500 XP)
