I agree, I think that even in a hypothetical scenario of Geralt going to Kovir with Triss and Yen ending up in some type of danger needing his help, he would go to her without thinking twice. Same way I believe he would help Triss even if he retires to Toussaint. The way I see Geralt and how I like to play him is as a man who cares about few people, but for the ones he does care about, he would do anything..
Well, to be fair, this is nothing unusual for a sorceress, Yennefer is anomaly in this regard. Why is it such a bad thing, anyway? She's smart, well educated and pretty, she worked hard on becoming a powerful and respected mage and she wants to be in a position of power just like almost all of her colleagues.
What I like about her that even if she is much more enjoyable (at least for me) she still has many flaws. But she's really trying to be someone better.
Is it that much of a stretch to imagine this version of Geralt could learn to tolerate politics and high society for the sake of being with Triss?
I agree, the way I play Geralt, he will always have a special place for Yen in his heart.This is what I have been saying. Just because he chooses Triss, doesn't mean he doesn't care for Yen and wouldn't do anything for her. He will always care about her, they went through so much in the past. Where I feel things are different if from a romantic standpoint. I think Geralt is more at peace with Triss, without the constant fighting, breakups and so on.

I get the same impression as you from Geralt and Triss' relationship, there is a certain peace, calmness and general happiness I see in him and the way he interacts with Triss. He even tells Ciri how he finally feels like things are the way they're supposed to be. That dialogue really goes in line with how I see the two of them together.
If she have told him about Yen (and Ciri), the things she did for him and what he did for her, and if he was impassioned for Triss even after that would be a lot more natural to me. But knowing Geralt as I believe I do, he would drop that "king's witcher" bull crap and would run after Yen and Ciri without thinking twice. Triss probably know that.
What gets me the most is people's black and white view on this, things like Its only Yen! Can never be anyone else for Geralt.
I would have no problem with that, if Geralt didn't hate politics, high society, a wealthy lifestyle and etc. He's been raised as a simple man living with the minimum, that's how he is and how he dreams for his future.

We can only speculate what would happen after another quarrel or two with djinn wish removed.
No one is saying that they have to live in a hut. I think corvo bianco will be fine for herI actually can't imagine Yennefer enjoying too 'simple' a life - she demands luxury at all times and wouldn't be happy with the minimum that satisfies Geralt.

Hmm last time I checked in Lady of The Lake book Yen made love with Geralt on a sheepskin on the ground....how exactly she demands luxury all the time?
Well, in the game she traded sheepskin for the unicorn, that's definitely a luxury. :laughing:
Seriously though, I've read this thing about Yennefer and avarice several times already from several different people, never got to understand what are they referencing exactly.
Geralt makes a comment about Yennefer's love of luxury in the game. But then again Geralt also seems convinced that politics and plots are "her life", so who knows anymore?
Yeah, the NPCs (and Geralt) often seem confused.Geralt makes a comment about Yennefer's love of luxury in the game. But then again Geralt also seems convinced that politics and plots are "her life", so who knows anymore?
Triss is used to hardship because she was sick in Blood of Elves...poor girl indeed.
Remember that Geralt in Witcher 1 says that he's not ready to talk about his past.

Seems the war shifted over to Youtube comments.
