This page will serve as your main source for The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone. We’ll take you through all of the main story quests, as well as the secondary quests. We’ll even help Geralt hit all the right romance options with Shani, a new love interest with the Hearts of Stone DLC.

Of course, if you’re just getting into The Witcher 3 for the first time, you’ll want to make your way through Prima Games’ The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Walkthrough and Guide. We’ll hit all the main and secondary quests there, as well as features such as where to find all of the Witcher gear, and how to romance the women in Geralt’s life, such as Yennefer and Triss.

The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone Tips

  • Hopefully you hit level 30 in The Witcher 3, because that is the starting level for Hearts of Stone. If you’re not there, get on the base game and start grinding.
  • The Viper School, Griffin School, Cat School and Ursine School gear is some of the best in the game. If you don’t have it, make sure you prioritize finding some.
  • Remember to meditate before you go picking fights with big, scary monsters. This can regenerate your health, as well as top off your potions before battle.
  • Get familiar with your signs again, as these are often the difference between living and dying in any situation Geralt finds himself in. It should be second nature.
  • Some of the later boss fights are pretty tough. If you’re struggling, consider abandoning the quest to raise your level a bit before going back to try again.
