Contract: The Phantom of Eldberg is one of the contracts available in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Geralt can first hear about it after defeating Madman Lugos at fisticuffs during the banquet at Kaer Trolde keep. Otherwise, reading the notice outside the inn in Arinbjorn will also trigger the quest.

Contract: The Phantom of Eldberg
If you got this far, clearly you know how to read, so read the rest, and read it well.
A wraith's sprung up on Eldberg and covered the whole isle in fog and put out the light in our lighthouse. If you're afraid to face a ghost in battle, stay far from Eldberg, for there you'll fund neither gold nor glory, only death. But if you've faced such phantoms before, then know that I, Jorund of Arinbjorn, will pay my own gold to you if you drive off the spirits from our clan's territories.

Journal entry[]

Geralt learned that the village called Arinbjorn was suffering from a wraith problem. The ghost haunted the nearby islet of Eldberg, a barren rock of no interest to anyone save for the lighthouse erected upon it. This lighthouse's light had gone out simultaneously with the phantom's appearance. This meant it had become nigh unto impossible to safely navigate a ship into Arinbjorn harbor after dark. The witcher's task was to chase off the phantom and find out what had happened to the lighthouse keeper.
It turned out the monster of Eldberg was a Penitent - a dangerous wraith which haunted particularly foul sinners.
It seems it was the lighthouse keeper, Mikkjal, who was at fault. Working in cahoots with pirates, he would lure ships into the rocks and loot them after they wrecked. These misdeeds were what had drawn the phantom. Geralt dealt with situation as he saw fit and then went to collect his reward.
