It’s back.


The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine – Gwent: Never Fear, Skellige’s Here

There’s a new Gwent deck in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s second expansion – Skellige. You can obtain a basic Skellige deck by signing up for its debut tournament in the quest Gwent: To Everything – Turn, Turn, Tournament, but to complete the deck you’ll need to find 19 cards out in the wild.

Helpfully, this quest tracks it. It’s acquired automatically the first time you win a Skellige card by playing Gwent in Toussaint – likely at the Cockatrice Inn during The Beast of Toussaint.

We haven’t finished tracking down all 19 cards yet, but we’re developing a list of characters who will play Gwent with you, resulting in 16 cards found so far just through random match rewards, and we’ll update when we track down the last few cards. We’ve listed each NPCs preferred faction so you can prepare your deck accordingly; all award Skellige cards if you’ve completed your main game collection already or are playing a standalone match.
