Funeral Pyres is a secondary quest that involves burning the corpses of fallen soldiers. It starts in Velen a bit west of the village of Mulbrydale.
In No Man’s Land Geralt was given a contract by an Enternal Fire priest. His task: to burn the bodies of soldiers who had fallen during the recent battle in order to keep necrophages from eating them.
Name: Priest of The Eternal Flame
You need to burn the three pits filled with corpses.
Following contains quest spoilers. You’ve been warned
Find and burn the bodies lying in pits on the battle field (0/3).
If you track the quest pits are clearly marked on the map. Each pit has some ghouls you’ll have to fight. Use the oil priest gave you on the bodies and burn them with Igni. At one of the pits, you’ll find Titus Glelas fending off ghouls. If you help him, he’ll tell you the priest threw him into the pit.
Pits are marked on the map when you track the quest in your journal.
Fight ghouls at pits.
Return to the priest of the Eternal Fire.
After you’re done with burning the bodies, go back to the priest, who is now located close to the bridge to Novigrad.
