The Witcher 3 Best Sword Guide Blood and Wine [Aerondight]


In this guide we see How to get the Aerondight Silver Sword in The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine DLC.

Don't forget to also consult the cheats and complete guide card of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt for other useful guides on this game.

Let's make an important premise: the silver sword "Aerondight" that we will cover in this guide can ONLY be taken in the Blood and Wine DLC of The Witcher 3. If you don't have this add-on, you won't be able to get this sword.

In order to take this sword you will basically have to demonstrate that you have the 5 virtues: Compassion, Generosity, Honor, Valor and Wisdom.

There are several occasions in the DLC where you will be given the opportunity to make choices that, if actually made, will demonstrate that you have these particular virtues. In fact, several users, at the time of starting the quest indicated below, discovered, to their great surprise, that they had already demonstrated all the virtues without realizing it.

If you haven't been so good / lucky, proceed as shown in this video:

1) first of all you will have to go to the lake where you will meet the hermit (see the video for the exact location). After a short discussion, you can start the "There can only be one" side quest.

2) At this point you will have to get to work to demonstrate that you have the 5 virtues indicated above. As mentioned there are several ways to do this, but it's not that simple. In fact, these are often random actions that you may not perform even after completing the DLC. Below you will find listed those that can be done already in the early stages of the DLC, in the first hour of the game.

- Compassion. To prove that you have this virtue, in the main mission "The Beast of Toussaint" after fighting with the Shalemaar in the arena choose to spare his life.

- Generosity. Go to the main square of Beauclair to find a child who will deliver you a letter. You give him 5 crowns.

- Honor. In the side mission "The Warble of a Smitten Knight" you participate in the tournament as Geralt of Rivia. After the horse race you agree to participate in the horse duel and win.

- Value. In the side mission "The Warble of a Smitten Knight" after following the girl into the woods and returning to the camp, you decide to finish the tournament and win.

- Wisdom. In the main mission "La Cage Au Fou" after meticulously exploring the creature's lair, when you are hidden in the closet you decide to remove the curse instead of attacking the creature.

3) At this point, all you have to do is go back to the lake and talk to the hermit again. A clash will take place, come out winners and as with excalibur the hand of the lady of the lake will hand you the fantastic Aerondight Sword from the water.
