Go to the western gate, where you will meet Zoltan (M15, 22). The siege will begin as you're talking.

You will decide to start off by giving the soldiers a taste of hot oil. Run up the walls on the right side - right at the end you will find a mechanism (M15, 23) which spills oil - you have to quickly mash the left mouse button. However look out for Kaedweni Knights.

Step 3: Rejoin Zoltan at the gate

After pouring the oil onto the enemies, return to Zoltan (M15, 22).

Run up the walls (M15, 24), where you will have to fight off the enemies for quite some time. You won't be alone, so you don't have to worry about getting surrounded.

You will have to fight off another enemy wave - proceed identically as before and you should survive without any problems.

Additional prize: 400 XP

Step 6: Check the secret tunnel leading to Vergen

Step 7: Kill Detmold

You will eventually reach a bigger part of the cave, where you will meet Detmold (M22, 3) - Vergen Besieged - Main missions - The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Game Guide and Walkthrough

You will eventually reach a bigger part of the cave, where you will meet Detmold (M22, 3). What happens next can hardly be called a fight, as you just have to survive long enough for the mage to throw a spell at you. Additionally your moves are limited by the force field. Luckily you won't die, saved by somebody quite surprising. Detmold will be able to teleport.

Additional prize: 300 XP

Step 9: Defend Vergen's walls

Once again you will have to fight off a wave of enemies climbing up the walls using ladders. Remember about using Aard to knock them down. After some time Iorweth will appear, together with a squad of Scoia'tael archers.

Step 10: Break through to Iorweth

Before ending act 2, make sure to have collected every plot item you find and do NOT use or sell things like neckar warrior blood, brain of bullvore, harpy egg, pheromones of endrega Queen and whatever, because you will need them to cr5eate some very powerfull items in act 3 and some of these items can not be found then anymore!
