He vowed to marry her. That's no small matter in Skellige. With both being heads of state I cannot fathom either being aggressive towards one another. Ciri would surely sue for peace with Skellige. Remember it's Emhyrs aggressive policies that has angered Skellige. With him removed and Ciri in charge it doesn't make much sense.She was a childhood crush, not the love of his life. I'm pretty sure raiding is expected of him so yeah, he'll be doing that.
As for changing the ending...that outcome as few enough realistic consequences as it is. Let's not remove even more.
It's the wrong ending if he didn't want Ciri to have to make some really tough choices.Maybe he's trying to tell that you chose wrong ending.
I'm kidding. There is no right or wrong ending/choice in The Witcher universe
The witcher's path can be challenging too. Seems like her disappearance is the only way to avoid tough choices.
I suppose it would depend on factors such as the scale and harshness of the raid and the location.
Maybe if it were a more autonomous province such as the Temeria in this ending they would have to deal with it on their own I would think.
But I would also think after a time the Empress would have but no choice to put him down.
That's interesting though now that I think about. We're talking as though we're ok with Skelligers raping, pillaging, murdering, and taking thralls from the continent, as long as it doesn't inconvenience a main character and make them feel bad.
Ciri becomes Empress even if Nilfgaard wins if I'm not mistaken. Her father abdicates in favour of her. If Nilfgaard lose then she still becomes Empress as rightful heir but her father is killed instead of abdicating. Have I gotten it wrong
