This page covers No Place Like Home, Va Fail Elaine and Decoctions of the Grasses. If you're looking for more assistance, our Witcher 3 walkthrough can help.

With your vision blurred from the booze, activate your Witcher Senses and stagger towards the footprints on the ground nearby. Examine the stain and follow the trail around the hall. Head outside and examine the prints again when they come to a stop.

No Place Like Home

Examine the source of the noise

Activate your Witcher Senses and look for the two pulsating red circles nearby. Approach the source of the noise, then tell Lambert that you're done drinking.

When you wake up, ask Vesemir what he learned the night before. Next, find out what you need to do next and prepare yourself for some alchemy.

Elsewhere, learn about the best Witcher 3 builds, the best Witcher 3 mods, how to make money in Witcher 3, find Places of Power locations, and learn how to do Witcher 3 crafting and Witcher 3 Alchemy And when you're done with all those - we can help you through expansions with our Hearts of Stone walkthrough and Blood and Wine walkthrough.

Va Fail, Elaine

Gather the necessary ingredients and brew the Decoctions of the Grasses

To proceed, you'll need to find the ingredients used to brew the Decoctions of the Grasses potion - specifically, bryonia, forktail spinal fluid, ribleaf, albino bruxa tongue, manticore poison gland and mandrake root. Sounds like hard work, right? Fear not: simply follow the objective marker over to the glowing table in the main hall and examine the box to grab everything that you need.

Brew the Decoctions of the Grasses

Next, open your Alchemy menu and scroll down to the Decoctions of the Grasses potion at the bottom of the list. When the potion is complete, exit the menu.

Bring the potion to Yennefer

Approach Yennefer at the objective marker and hand over the potion to begin the procedure. Open the valves in any order you choose. Wrap up the conversation with Eskel then, once time has passed, recount a tale to Yennefer. When the procedure is complete, work your way through the dialogue options - asking Vesemir what he suggests you do about Ciri - to end the quest.
