Quest Text

As it turned out, Geralt was not alone in searching White Orchard for a lost loved one. The Witcher also found the notice of a peasant who was seeking his brother. The brother had left home to take up arms against Nilfgaard. The forces of the North and the Black Ones had then clashed in a great battle near the brothers’ home village, and the peasant had not heard from his brother since.

Look for Temerian shields with white flowers painted on them.

Go down to the objective area and use your Witcher Senses to inspect the shields. There are ghouls in the area, scavenging for flesh, so be on your toes.

There is a burned corpse lying alone in the southwestern corner, go to it and examine the body. It is not Bastien, but Bastien’s dog will pick up his scent and run off.

There are several shields around that match the description. Go for the one found next to a burned body.

Exact location of the shield you’re looking for is on the map above (player’s arrow marks the location).

Follow the dog’s trail.

Follow the dog as he makes way to a nearby cabin. You will find Bastien talking to a deserter called Rhosyn. You now have to choose what to do with the Niflgaardian deserter.

You have a choice to make, which is purely moral, since the in-game rewards are the same.
Choice 1

Side with Dune and abandon the soldier.

Reward is 25XP
Choice 2

Agree with Bastien and let Rhosyn alive.

Reward is 25XP and You can meet Rhosyn, Dune and Bastien alive later on at their farm.
