I've played 1 and 2 but doesn't really matter because 3 is all about urgency and finding Ciri. I'm just trying to view the situation logically and practically. Just like how it wouldn't make sense for Geralt to help Roche with Ves or help Lambert with his personal matters. Geralt is always one to help his friends, but the urgency of Ciri and the Wild Hunt on her trail doesn't leave much room for a lot of the side stuff and I can't see how Geralt would be able to make time for those side things when he has a vital priority in finding Ciri.
There is no urgency when he stops to do solve 16565454113215 monster contracts. If the urgency was so big, there won't be spaces for anything else except for Ciri
