Bloody Baron is a main quest in The Witcher 3. This quest starts once you complete another main quest called “The Nilfgaardian Connection”.
|Location:||Velen (No Man’s Land)|
Nilfgaard’s agent had determined Ciri had stayed with the baron – the self-proclaimed ruler of Velen. This man was known for his violent temper and three-mile-long cruel streak, hence his moniker: the Bloody Baron. Geralt, however, was not one to be frightened by nicknames, least of all those taken from bodily fluids, and so made his way to Crow’s Perch, the baron’s seat, to ask about Cirilla.
The first part of this quest is greatly influenced by your decisions within the previous main quest, “The Nilfgaardian Connection”. If you got in combat with the guards at the Inn you will have the same situation with the guards from the Baron’s garrison. This increases the time needed to reach the Baron. If you avoided combat at the Inn, you are free to enter the compound.
