Royal Palace in Vizima one-time home of the kings of Temeria. Currently occupied by Nilfgaard. It's a simple, linear location. You have to perform here Imperial Audience Quest.
MAIN QUEST: Imperial Audience
Geralt had spent years looking for Yennefer, only to have her find him. She had appeared outside the tavern in White Orchard, escorted by Nilfgaardian soldiers. The one-time lowers could not enjoy their reunion, for the sorceress had insisted they make haste.
Geralt and Yennefer had then left White Orchard accompanied by the Nilfgaardians, but only the witcher and the sorceress reached Vizima. Along the way their column was attacked by a cavalcade of wraiths; the Omen of War - the Wild Hunt.
Geralt's head was abuzz with questions. What had Yen gotten into? How had the Hunt found them? Why was it looking for them? Why had he been summoned to Vizima? He was to get his answers from none other than the Emperor of Nilfgaard himself, Emhyr var Emreis, the White Flame Dancing on the Graves of his Foes. The most powerful man in the known world.

MAIN QUEST: The Nilfgaardian Connection
Geralt traveled to Velen in search of Ciri, an act that attested to the depth of his devotion. Only a man who has been to this land can know just how wild it is. At this time it was commonly known as No Man's Land. Why? Well, the emperor of Nilfgaard had not yet claimed it, Temeria was in disarray, and the Redanians had already retreated north. No Man had been left in charge, and he had proved a terrible ruler.
Geralt needed to find Hendrik, an imperial agent who had been working on Ciris case, and to collect from him what information he had managed to gather.
NPC: Gwent Player
SECONDARY QUEST: Gwent: Playing Innkeeps
It is an innkeeper's job to tend to his guests' needs. Usually this takes the form of serving strong drinks and listening to tales of loves lost and wounds received. Yet at times a patron will wish to play a hand of gwent, which is why all good innkeepers keep a deck at the ready at all times. And the excellent ones - they keep excellent decks, full of top-notch cards that can provide an evening of challenge and excitement to even the most refined gwent player. Geralt was determined to win some of these cards for himself.

MAIN QUEST: In Ciri's Footsteps
Emhyr var Emreis had been searching for his daughter Ciri for quite sometime. Even the most dubious sighting of an ashen-haired young woman with a scar on her cheek would send imperial spies Scurrying.
Not even the harsh conditions of war-ravaged Velen deterred them - indeed, it is there they had been most successful, determining that Ciri had been, and possibly still was, in the region. Reports of a similar nature had also come in from Novigrad, but remained unconfirmed. Emhyr's spooks had gathered nothing concrete from Skellige, but an explosion of magical energy had taken place on one of the isles, and it seemed likely that Ciri had been somehow involved.
MAIN QUEST: Pyres of Novigrad
Yet Novigrad at this time was not the city Geralt knew from his earlier travels. War raged throughout the known world, and rich cities often prove tempting morsels to armies On the march. It was clear at this time that this particular morsel had both Radovid and Emhyr greedily licking their chops. Within the city, the Temple Guard acted with impunity under the command of a cankerous Snot named Caleb Menge and with the support of that terror-spreading band of zealots, the witch hunters. Meanwhile, the kingpins of the city's underworld still held much of it in their sleazy grasp.
Finding Ciri here would be like searching for a needle in a burning haystack - Geralt would clearly need some assistance. Luckily, an old acquaintance of his now lived in Novigrad. Her name was Triss Merigold.
MAIN QUEST: Destination: Skellige
The search for Ciri had taken Yennefer to the windswept Skellige Isles - that is to say, lest your mind fill with visions of Our elegant sorceress shivering on some barren rock - it had taken her to a Suite of Comfortable rooms near Kaer Trolde Castle on the isle of Ard Skellig. Geralt was to join her there and thus set off to the port in
Novigrad, where he hoped to find a captain bold enough to brave the pirate infested waters en route.
