Talk to Avallac’h about what to do next.

Speak to the survivors of the battle as the funeral pyre burns, then head north and down the hill to the fortress and meet with Avallac’h, Triss, Yennefer, and Cirilla.

Don’t let the snowballs hit you. (8). Defeat Ciri in a snowball fight (8).

Your choices now will directly impact the ending and the fate of Ciri, so tread carefully.

Ciri will appear with Avallac’h a few days after the battle. She is unable to put the battle behind her and asks how you cope with it all. You have two options:
  • Tell her: “Think I know what might lift your spirits.” This will give +1 Positive choice to Ciri’s fate.
  • Tell her: “Relax, you don’t have to be good at everything.” This will give -1 Negative choice to Ciri’s fate.
Ciri wakes you up early in the next morning. She tells you that you need to go to Velen, to the witches’ Sabbath on Bald Mountain. Imlerith will be there, giving you the perfect opportunity to kill him and avenge Vesemir. Answer her however you wish until you get to the following choice:
Choice 1

“Gotta visit the emperor first.”

The two of you head to Vizima first, to meet Ciri’s father. If you choose this option, Ciri will become empress.
Choice 2

“All right, Velen it is.”

If you choose this option, Ciri will become a Witcher instead.

Father’s Day

You arrive in Vizima a week later and are brought before the emperor. He will greet her with her full name and have one of his servants bring a chest filled with coins. You’ll have to make a choice.
Choice 1

Refuse the coin.

Ciri will be proud with you. This counts as a Positive Choice (+1) for Ciri’s fate.

Ciri and her father will then walk away to talk in private, but not before the Emhyr gives you a black Nilfgaardian mare as a token of his appreciation.

Choice 2

Accept the coin.

Ciri will be crestfallen because she’ll think that you’ve only looked after her to get the coin. This counts as a Negative Choice (-1) for Ciri’s fate.
