Practicum In Advanced Alchemy - Skellige

Practicum in advanced alchemy quest start

Area: Skellige
Location: Gedyneith
Quest Giver: Druid/Gremist or Otto Bamber
Other Requirements: N/A

There are three different ways you can begin this quest; two are in Skellige near Gedyneith and the third is in Novigrad by the town of Oxenfurt. In Novigrad you'll need to speak with Otto Bamber at the Herbalists Hut near the town of Oxenfurt. As for the locations in Skellige, speak with the man outside the cave north of Gedyneith (pictured above) or the druid merchant at Gedyneith.

Regardless of how you start this quest the first thing you will need to do is speak with Gremist who is outside the cave north of Gedyneith (also where I am standing at in the above picture). Keep speaking with Gremist and asking him to take you on as an apprentice until he gives you three different tasks to complete, each of these tasks are talked about below.

Find Pimpernel

Pimpernel Stump

In the center of the quest marker for this objective you'll find stumps of the Pimpernel plant but no flowers (pictured above) examine the stumps in the middle of the quest marker and an old man will appear to speak with you. Hear him out then once the scene is over follow the foot prints until you reach a hill. They'll split up at this point, take the foot prints down the hill first which will run you right into an armored arachnas.

Right before the armored arachnas you'll find some very neatly stacked stones that glow red if you use your Witcher Senses. Uncover them to find a body that belongs to Jorre the White. You've accomplished everything down here - now follow the foot prints up the mountain the other way.

Here you will find a Succubus as well as Ramund. You'll be given the choice to kill the Succubus or let her live - either way you'll get your Pimpernel Flower. Killing her will get you the Succubus Mutagen, you'll need to follow your Witcher Senses to her lair if you decide to kill her - otherwise she'll lead you there and give you the flower.

Convince Fritjof to Perform the Rite

Fritjof Foglet Fight

Head over to Blandare which is where you will find Fritjof. Agree to help him with his ritual which will be extremely straight forward - you'll be battling a group of Foglets while he performs the ritual. They appear in pairs at first then later in a pack of four. When you're done you'll be thrown into dialogue with Fitjof and he will agree to help.

Foglet Weaknesses: Moon Dust (Bomb), Necrophage Oil, Quen

Return to Gremist and speak with him to update your quest. He'll ask you to wait outside for 24hrs (so meditate) then return to him. When you return to him he teaches you a lot of what he knows about Alchemy.
