Complementing the crew in Kaer Morhen
A grand battle with the Wild Hunt is an important part of the main storyline. You can prepare for it by recruiting allies to your party. Formally you can start it after reaching the second act of the game. However, you must make proper decisions and complete some quests even earlier. Below you will find a list of potential party members with information on how to make them join you. A thorough read of these information is advised because in some cases making the wrong decisions might make it impossible for you to gain an ally.
Important! Recruiting at least seven people will allow you to obtain the achievement/trophy called "Full Crew".
- Ermion - You will meet her in the Kaer Trolde stronghold on the Ard Skellig island, which is a part of the Skellige islands archipelago. After reaching the II act of the game you must meet with her and ask for help.
- Hjalmar - You will meet him in the Kaer Trolde stronghold on the Ard Skellig island, which is a part of the Skellige islands archipelago. After reaching the II act of the game you must meet with him and ask for help.
- Keira Metz - You will find her in her hut in Velen, North-East from Midcopse. You must complete the quests given to you by the sorceress. "For the Advancement of Learning" is the most important of them. During the conversation at the end of that quest, you mustn't attack the sorceress nor let her walk away. Instead, you must convince her to go to Kaer Morhen.
- Letho - He can be found in Reardon Manor in Velen, South-East from Lindenvale. You must complete the side quest "The Fall of the House of Reardon" related to Letho. Important! Letho could have died in Witcher 2. In that case you won't be able to recruit him. It's not a big problem since the game will allow you to recruit seven other characters and still gain the "Full Crew" achievement.
- Triss Merigold - You will meet her while completing the main quests in Novigrad. You must complete all side quest received from her.
- Vernon Roche - This character resides in location called Temerian partisan hideout North from Oxenfurt. You must complete side quests in which Vernon appears. "An Eye for an Eye" is the most important of them. After reaching the second act of the campaign meet with Roche and ask him for help.
- Ves - This character will join your crew after you manage to recruit Vernon Roche.
- Zoltan Chivay - You will find him in Novigrad, in an inn called Rosemary and Thyme. You must complete side quests in which Zoltan appear. "An Eye for an Eye" is the most important of them. After reaching II act of the campaign meet with Zoltan and ask him for help.
