The Witcher 3: Skellige secondary quests

Skellige is a difficult place to explore. Not only will you have to sail to reach a number of islands inaccessible by other means, but you may need to sail to get from one side of an island to the other; the mountainous landscape makes it difficult to make a beeline for your goals.

Much of the content here is very high level, and some of it is best left for when you’re close to finishing the game at level 30 or so. But that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to do; if you’ve just arrived, you’ll find challenges accessible from perhaps as low as level 15 all the way up to the reaches of level 35. If you have some good equipment and alchemy products, you can rake in XP , cash and loot here. Worth the trip.

As you wander Skellige you may come across a number of quests not listed here. Some of the quests you find are well beyond your reach at this stage; come back in Act Two and Act Three to challenge them. We’ve listed these quests in our Act Two and Act Three secondary quest hubs.

Tackle these ones instead. We hope to have full walkthroughs for all of these soon, but in the meantime, this makes a handy checklist. At the end of this lost you should be well on your way to level 25, if not beyond, and ready to tackle serious challenges.
