How to Get Good Ending in Blood & Wine

The good ending sees the duchess and Syanna put their differences aside and bury the hatchet. They forgive each other and lock arms in an embrace while the camera pans across the ducal palace.

In order to get this ending, you’ll have to:
  1. Go after Syanna in The Night of Long Fangs quest.
  2. Read all entries in the journal.
  3. Get the ribbon from the girl in the Beyond Hill & Dale quest.
Afterwards, during Pomp and Strange Circumstance, visit Syanna before you talk to Damien and start the ceremony. Go to where she’s held and persuade the guard to let you speak to her. The options you need to pick in this conversation are:
  1. Cause she turned her back on you, forgot about you.
  2. Ever thought to forgive her?
  3. Might ask her that.
After that, talk to Damien and inform him you know about Syanna’s true plans (Fifth victim – know who it was supposed to be). He’ll thank you and lead you to the ceremony. When the duchess asks if you’re happy with your reward, tell her about Syanna’s plans (Got bad news – Syanna was out to kill you).

When the duchess asks your opinion, tell her Syanna’s clearly guilty. When Syanna lays out her defence and starts a counterattack, tell her You were children then, both. This will trigger the happy ending.

Bad Ending in Blood and Wine

This path ends with you in jail, Syanna dead and Anna Henrietta angry and grieving. Here’s what you need to do in order to unlock it:
  1. Go after Syanna in The Night of Long Fangs.
  2. Don’t take the ribbon from the girl in Beyond Hill & Dale. This will cause Dettlaff to kill Syanna.
You will end up in prison, only to be saved by your trusty bard friend at a later point.

Blood & Wine Tragic Ending

The worst path ends with both Syanna and Anna Henrietta dead. The whole of Toussaint is in grieving, while the country slowly falls into disrepair.

There are two ways to trigger this ending:
  • Choose to go after the Unseen Elder in The Night of Long Fangs.
  • Skip talking to Syanna before the ceremony.
After the duchess awards you the crest, Syanna will be brought up to trial, and she’ll use the opportunity to kill her sister. Damien will manage to put a crossbow bolt through her neck, but not before the damage has already been done.
