Remember he Spared that little girl as she looked just like his sister so he was of Clear mind but those Villagers provoked him.He wasn't of clear mind. He lost a lot of blood and was also intoxicated by potions. Who knows what witcher potions do to decision making, like I said he was probably in some survival instinct mode where every villager is 'better safe than sorry'
or maybe he didn't wanna leave any witnesses, even if the ealdorman was an evil prick the witcher would still be hunted down for killing him.
@gloom13 those trophies kind of imply that he stayed calm at all the times he's been cheated.
Wow, you'd make one hell of an Eternal Fire Priest dude. Go get some more Peasants and burn a Witch!Of course, they are. After the downgrade debacle, I don't know why anyone would have any respect for them. I personally don't find this missing DLC to be much of an issue, but the graphics downgrade and CDPR's deceit surrounding it is probably the most egregious behavior I've ever seen from a developer. Much worse than Ubisoft with Watch Dogs and From Software with Dark Souls II. Hell, these people announced DLC expansions before The Witcher 3 was even released. How focused on the initial game could they have been... They have no credibility, there's nothing trustworthy about them.
This "free DLC" they've been touting is probably finished content they intentionally removed from the game in an attempt to appear charitable, when in fact, they're just another unscrupulous and greedy company.
Don't worry about it man. The other outcome was pretty obvious anyway, so all good. I don't mind.
I wouldn't call it cold blood when they first stuck a pitchfork in his back. He was acting in self defence. I agree he did go a bit too far, but hes a witcher, a killing machine, you press the wrong buttons and your in for a world of pain.I didn't think it was much of a choice, really. The guy murdered innocents in cold blood. That doesn't create any moral dilemmas for me.
I always tried to talk my way out of fights with soldiers, only during Radovid's assassination (which made me love Philippa even more) and obviously during the prison break I had to kill some Red's but I had no mercy when it came to killing Witch Hunters.In my playthrough, i let him go, i took my time with that option simply because it was definitely one of the tougher choices i went through with. Personally though, i didn't feel like Geralt should judge him unfairly to what seemed like a natural reaction because he risked his life to help the villagers, they then refuse to pay and then try to kill you....so him defending himself seemed like something Geralt would understand and in his words "sometimes heads just roll"
He let the girl go, so that was ok in my books but the fact that he slaughtered innocents because he was something of a loose cannon means i can understand why other players may choose to kill him. Besides there aren't many witchers left and i didn't feel like Geralt should kill one.....he had an excuse for fighting back after some of the villagers initiated the fight, but he went too far with killing all but one of the innocents. I mean even Geralt will slaughter a bunch of people because of one person (Radovid and his soldiers who were just doing their job for example), and i didn't think Geralt in this situation should be taking the moral high ground, i don't know, it just didn't feel 'right' to take actions into my own hands in that situation, also he seemed regretful of his actions.....just my opinion of course.
Anyway i took the girl to the aunt and like you told her the truth and then gave her money.....the quest reminded me a lot of the Succubus contract - did you kill the succubus because she was defending herself (in her words)? or what about the troll (from the dlc)? some of these quests are done very well, and definitely a great dlc mission.
Yeah i agree, usually i will only have Geralt fight back in self-defense because the enemy attacked him first, and killing the witch hunters...well i had no problems/regrets with that. I hope i didn't spoil the succubus contract for you if you haven't done it yet, but there are a lot of these great moments that aren't so black or white (good vs evil).I always tried to talk my way out of fights with soldiers, only during Radovid's assassination (which made me love Philippa even more) and obviously during the prison break I had to kill some Red's but I had no mercy when it came to killing Witch Hunters.
I don't think I found the Succubus contract, I am currently running round post game finding and doing all that I didn't do during the actual playthrough to get all of the mastercrafted Witcher gear so I will probably find it soon, but I often take the side of the monsters/non-humans, obviously I don't go bias but I will side with them if I believe they're in the right.
