|Prerequisite||A Towerful of Mice|
|Next Quest||For the Advancement of Learning|
A Favor for a Friend is a Secondary Quest in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Secondary Quests are optional Quests not required to finish the game. Some of these quests may have a bearing on certain Main Quests or may be a consequence of another Quest.
A Favor for a Friend can be obtained after completing A Towerful of Mice. Keira Metz asks Geralt for another favor, this time asking him to find her missing goods.
When the devil cannot go himself, he sends a woman - and when a sorceress is indisposed, she sends a witcher to do her errands. That, at least, was Keira Metz's approach. Finding herself in a bit of a pinch, she asked Geralt for yet another favor. This time she needed him to track down a merchant's wagon which had been carrying some rare magic ingredients her way. It had never arrived, and she had begun to fear the worst.

Walkthrough for The Witcher 3 A Favor for a Friend
Once you've completed the previous quest named A Towerful of Mice, Keira will ask you for another favor to find her missing goods. Her trader was supposed to bring her items but failed to arrive, so you conclude it should have passed through Hangman's Alley. Now head over to Hangman's Alley to begin your search.
Once you arrive at the area, you will see multiple Drowners and a Water Hag nearby, kill them off to proceed and search near the fast travel signpost to find the wagon's tracks on the road. Follow the tracks and they will lead you south where they'll eventually lead you to the forest. Continue following the tracks and you'll find the wagon. Examine the wagon and you'll find a blood trail, follow the trail and a Rotfiend will be near a body, kill the Rotfiend then loot the body for a note. Then go back to the wagon and look for the chest beneath it, that is the package Keira was supposed to get.
Now bring the items back to Keira. You will then point out that there is nothing magical about the items, she tells you to wait for a bit and she'll show you what it is for. You can still return to her later if you decline but if you agree, she will tell you to go outside. After the cutscene, you can agree to play along as Prince Charming or not. If you decline, the quest will be automatically failed. If you agree, she will ask to cast another spell to change the appearance of both your clothes to look fancier. You can decline the spell and it will have no consequences whatsoever. After that, she will challenge you to a race to the spot. You will get an extra 50 XP if you win the race.
Afterward, you and Keira will chat for a bit then she'll propose a more personal relationship. If you choose this route, you will have to follow the trail of clothes leading down to the water where the two of you will have an intimate romance. Doing this will NOT affect your chance to romance Triss or Yennefer later in the game. You can choose to not have the romance part and regardless of your choice, Keira will cast a sleeping spell on you.
When you wake up at dawn you will find Keira gone. Regardless of the choice you've made for this quest, completing it will reward you with 80 XP and the next quest For the Advancement of Learning will be available.
