In the process of completing the task "Count Reuven's Treasure" Triss Merigold asks Geralt to visit her in connection with the emergence of a very urgent and vital request.
After this dialogue will be available to track/pass the task "A Matter of Life and Death"! It is not necessary to make a beautiful sorcerer to wait!
As you may know, Triss has been trying to implement a plan to save the wizards from Novigrad for a long time, which was in the final stages, because most of her colleagues in the shop were already safe.
There was only one – the young alchemist named Albert Vegelbud, son of the famous in Novigrad Ingrid Vegelbud.
After explaining the situation, where Triss tells Geralt about receiving a strange but intriguing letter, which directly indicates the desire of Ingrid Vegelbud to help with the escape of the wizards from Novigrad, but on one condition, left without clarification…
Ingrid would have to explain her proposal in more detail at the meeting between Triss and the servant who had brought the message.
Realizing that the meeting could be nothing more than a trap, Geralt agrees to help Triss and meet the messenger instead.
Armed with a secret phrase and a description of the appearance of the servant, the Witcher goes to the fish market.
Finding a servant is easy enough – he has a blue coat and a bunch of keys on his belt.
Despite the fact that after the beginning of the dialogue with the servant, he was somewhat surprised that it was not Triss who came to the meeting, he agreed to discuss the details of Ingrid's proposal in a more private place.
On the way to the point marked on the map, under the arch, Geralt and the servant will be attacked. The enemy is not difficult-use quick attacks and evasion, as well as if necessary sign Igni.
Was the fear justified, and this completely meeting just a trap? The informant, after denying his involvement, will ask about the whereabouts of the sorceress, who will not be long in coming and will appear at the same moment.
So, the informant will tell that the son of Mrs.Vegelbud - Albert, unexpectedly for parents was fond of alchemy that inevitably attracted the attention of hunters.
The essence of the proposal is that Triss must save Albert during the next masquerade party, and the grateful Ingrid Vegelbud will provide everything necessary for escape.
The Salvation of Albert
Geralt, wishing to please Triss, will change into a suitable outfit for the occasion (doublet, pants and gloves purchased from Elihal), as well as a wolf mask which you choose for him.
Having dressed up, go to the house to Triss, where she will be waiting for you in her chic image, a look from which it is very difficult to tear off.
Going on a holiday, at the gate of the estate, you will be met by a guard who has already been notified of your arrival.
Going into the courtyard, you will immediately understand that the fun is in full swing. Triss will be accosted by a tipsy man with insults and inappropriate jokes (since he only dared!).
You will have to choose what to do with the poor fellow:
1. Show what happens to those who wish to offend people dear to Geralt;
2. Avoid a fight by choosing a peaceful resolution of the conflict.
Further, you will another not so pleasant meeting with an old acquaintance sorceress named Moritz Diefenthel.
Do not sleep immediately go to the marked area on the map and pay attention to the map, or rather to the exclamation mark – this is a small tournament on Gwent, in which you can win some interesting cards. If you ignore the tournament or quit without finishing the game, the task "Collect a full collection of cards" will fail.
Also, it is worth walking around the tables with food, where you can significantly replenish their stocks.
So, after completing the indicated tasks, meet with Mrs.Vegelbud for a more private conversation, where all the priorities will be set.
Albert, as his mother will tell you, will be wearing a Panther mask, and you can find him at the farthest point (marked on the map) in the environment of the girls.
Hint to him about a certain "Excursion to Novigrad", so that he left his flirting with girls.
The best time to escape is during the fireworks, and albert will be waiting for you in the maze.
IMPORTANT! Your further decisions directly affect your relationship with Triss, but even if you have already chosen Yennefer, you will be able to take a certain liberty.
There was still plenty of time before the designated fireworks display, and Triss would suggest spending it in the garden.
The desire to speak out, and a solid dose of wine drunk again will show us Triss exactly the side for which many people love her so much-it's courage, self-sacrifice, lightness and of course sensuality.
Support the sorceress (using the first two proposed options for the development of the dialogue), then go with her for a walk in the maze.
Drunk with booze and romantic atmosphere, Triss will want to demonstrate a sense of balance, walking along the edge of the fountain, but will break and find himself in the arms of Geralt.
Further actions that you have taken have consequences:
"Kiss Triss" - you will discover the opportunity to start a more serious relationship with a beautiful sorceress, which will go to a new level in the quest "Now or never".
Here you can take the liberty previously mentioned, even if you are already in a relationship with Yennefer. Knowing her, it is a mistake to assume that the incident will remain without her attention, but it will not affect your relationship.
"Now the time for this" - this will finally put an end to your relationship with Triss.
At the scheduled time, the fireworks will start and Albert will appear. To distract possible pursuers, you should exchange masks with him.
Give a small form to Triss and Albert, and follow to the stables.
Of course, it can't be that simple. In one of the corners of the maze, you will meet the hunters of Eternal fire, here the role played by the change of masks.
Show the attackers the skill of the Witcher shop and head to the stables, where everyone is ready to leave.
Triss will tell you that she will be leaving town soon, but she wants to see you again. With this meeting and will begin largely fateful quest "Now or never".
