Ciri's Story: The Race

Ciri's Story: Out of the Shadows is one of the main quests in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Journal entry[]

Ciri and the baron were testing their mettle in a horse race when a basilisk swooped down and put an end to the competition. The beast snatched the baron up and carried him off to its nest. Ciri, sparing no time for esecond thoughts, ran to his rescue.
Ciri knew that to save the baron she had to act quickly and use her special abilities. She made a desperate decision and, in the blink of an eye, teleported herself next to the monster and swiftly cut off its head.
This decision had consequences, however: Eredin could sense whenever Ciri used her powers, meaning that even that short moment – in which she revealed the strength lying dormant inside her – was enough to alert the Wild Hunt. Wanting to save the area and her newfound friends from the destruction that would inevitably follow in the Red Riders' wake, Ciri quickly abandoned Crow's Perch and made her way to Novigrad, where she hoped to find Yennefer.


  • Fight the basilisk and damage it until it flies away with the baron
