When the Witcher passes near an abandoned sawmill (the path to the east of it), he can take on the Shock Therapy task. A druid who wants to make his friend talk to the Witcher for help.
Meet the druid
The druid in the game about the wild hunt has lost his voice, and the player's task is to get it back. The reward is worth it - after completing the task, the Witcher will receive a card of Iorweth. How can you help the druid?
The NPC who gave the main character the task will tell you that the strongest feelings, such as anger, fear or disgust, can return the voice and save the druid from the disease.
The druid is under a tree, literally a few steps from the sawmill. You can ask him a few questions, but the answer is only silence. At some point, the Witcher may clarify exactly when Egil lost his voice, but he will only show the protagonist an indecent gesture.
How to make a druid speak
So now is the time to start shock therapy. Everything that is given on the assignment is three ways with which you can make the silent owner of a valuable card speak. The methods will not necessarily follow the algorithm described below - it all depends on where the druid will stop.
All the Witcher needs to do is perform three actions at certain moments (successfully completed actions will be confirmed by the corresponding uncivilized gestures that the druid will show):
- When the druid decides to lie down on the skin to rest, the Witcher needs to use the Aard sign to make all the kitchen utensils (dishes, pots, spoons, etc.) hanging nearby make terrible sounds. This will not only interrupt the druid's sweet sleep, but also make him fearful.
- As soon as the druid sits on the stone for meditation, you need to interrupt the elder's rest as soon as possible. To do this, you need to use the hornet's nest and stir it up, using the same skill "Aard". The wasps will fall on the druid along with the nest, and his meditation will end there.
- And the last action is to wait for the druid to sit down to make a fire (important: if the druid does not do this, you need to kindle the fire yourself), and then extinguish the flame.
After completing all three actions, the druid will become very upset. Moreover, what will he say to the Witcher that because of him he had to break the vow of silence, which lasted almost three years. And, whatever the main character replies, the druid will send him as far away as possible unprintably.
Completing the quest
All that needs to be done after that is to return to the NPC character who gave this task. You need to take the card from him. Together with the promised reward, the character will tell you that he is tired of the roommate who has taken a vow of silence. True, in order to find out this, it is necessary to linger for a short while in the cave of the druids. There, two characters will meet and will actively discuss the behavior of the protagonist.
