Been there, killed the bandits - no armor.
But it was on a notice board? You sure? And the name of the quest was Woodland Beast? I could swear that I looked on every notice board in Velen...
It's a contract, so it has to be from a board.
I think I'm gonna go to every notice board in Velen and write down what settlement I've already been to...
Btw, what level is the quest suggesting? And you really get attacked by elves?
Good news: Got the contract - it's indeed called "Woodland Beast" (suggested level 6) and it can be found on the notice board on the south side of the Pontar bridge garrison. In exchange for investigating attacks on military transports, you get the pass cross the river on your way to Novigrad. Sad news: Killed the elves and looted their camp - still no armor.
On a sidenote: I'm playing on normal difficult and am only level 4... maybe that's a factor?
EDIT: Just did the quest on the hardest difficulty and no difference
Did the same... the only thing I can think of now is, not killing the bandits before doing the quest. Maybe the loot normally left by the bandits changes when the quest i active? Gotta find a save where I didn't kill the bandits there first now... gonna take a while.
crud, beat that without letting myself get captured >.>Damn, it's probably tied to the quest. Honestly I don't remember which board I took it from. >_>
I didn't kill them before (didn't save to be more precise) so I think you can save your time...
What level were you when you did the quest?
Didn't find the armor, though I did find one that doesn't look so bad (wish the skirt had physics though), along with a good steel sword
The armor requires level 2, you can get it during the quest " Novigrad Dreaming" and the sword in the previous quest "Pyres of Novigrad". The recommended level is 10 but as you can see it can be managed to do it earlier.
I'll level up a bit and then try the Woodland Beast quest again to see if it spawns. I already asked but: @GamaHwhat level were you when you did the quest?
Btw, did anyone else notice that Geralt's clothes get "wet" for no good reason quite a lot? Kinda bothers me
What difficulty were you playing on when you did the quests? We are the same level but im playing on Blood & Broken bones
Enemies are humans? If so probably doable and i'll try atleastI admit that I set it to the easiest difficulty (because I was eager to get the armor) but I was only wearing the audience clothes as armor so I suppose I could've done it 1 or even 2 difficulty settings higher had I equipped proper armor.There is a quite difficult brawl with 4 level 10 foes (at least the way I played the mission)
If you have some kind of codex not to lower your difficulty then you might be able to get a bit later than I did
Enemies are humans? If so probably doable and i'll try atleast
There is one level 10 drownerbut Triss is assisting so it's no big deal at all
Did both quests but didnt find the armor, where exactly was it?
Looks like loot is random after all then...
Seems like it. I found 2 pair of trousers :/
