Feet as Cold as Ice is a Contact in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. This Contract is a part of the Blood and Wine DLC. Contracts act as Secondary Quests and 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.

Feet as Cold as Ice begins either by speaking with Jacquette at the  Nilfgaardian Embassy, or by the cave northwest of  Beauclair Palace by speaking to François le Goff  


Any semblance of false modesty aside, I can comfortably contend that my songs of Geralt's deeds are known the world over. The Duchy of Toussaint is no exception. There, my ballads praising our witcher's so oft demonstrated valor and honor remain popular to the extreme. So much so, that on one occasion it was chiefly thanks to my works that Geralt was offered a contract. A young noble lady, who had learned of the witcher solely from my thoroughly accurate descriptions, picked him out of a crowd and promptly begged him for aid. She was concerned for her fiancé, François, who had set out not long past to slay a monster in honor of his betrothed. The monster was known as Grottore, and the lady's beloved had not yet returned. The lady tasked the witcher with learning what had become of the young knight...

Walkthrough for The Witcher 3 Feet as Cold as Ice 

Begin the quest by either speaking with Jacquette at the Nilfgaardian Embassy, or by the cave northwest of Beauclair Palace by speaking to François le Goff. 

Your first objective will be to find François. Follow your objective marker and he will be at his camp asleep. 

For the best ending, agree to help him. Refusing to help him will affect his ending and you will then need to find out what happened to him.

If you agree to help, go with him to the cave to defeat the Grottore. You will need to use your Witcher Senses and read about the creature. It will be vulnerable against Relict OilDimeritium Bomb and the Igni sign. Stay within proximity with François to keep him alive for this quest. Defeat the Grottore and then you will only need to return to Jacquette. Be sure to keep at eye on François' HP bar. As you face him, you may need to clear any Archespore creatures in the area to minimize damage intake in combat. Once you are through with the Grottore, return to Jaquette to complete the quest.

Feet as Cold as Ice Journal 

  • If Geralt starts the quest by first finding François or the cave:

Few know just how nosy Geralt actually is. He rarely takes the path more frequently traveled, choosing instead to scale mountains, forge through dense brush and traverse many a wilderness. During one such foray through the largely unknown, he happened on a cave at the entrance of which lay numerous corpses. Before the witcher could begin to penetrate it, however, he was stopped by a young knight named François, who had vowed before his betrothed that he would kill the monster that dwelled within the cave.

If Geralt lets François run ahead and die:
Alas, young François stood no chance against Grottore. He perished, pounded to a pulp by the terrible beast.

  • Avenge François:

Geralt could do nothing to bring François back from the dead, but he could avenge the young knight and at once rid the land of a dangerous beast. Thus he drew his silver sword, sent it into a whirl, and soon after Grottore's ample dome dangled from the trophy hook affixed to the witcher's saddle.

  • If Geralt does not investigate and lets Grottore live:

Geralt once told me, albeit in confidence, that the witchers' codex he sometimes cited did not in fact exist. That he nurtured and occasionally employed said concept as an excuse of convenience to avoid taking on inappropriate contracts. I sometimes regret that his guild failed to formulate such by-laws - if it had perhaps Geralt would have aided young François or at the least avenged the unfortunate knight.

  • Protect François:

With Geralt's aid, the young François managed to defeat the fierce Grottore and thus fulfill the vow he had made.

  • Geralt gives the trophy to François:

Yet he showed an immense desire to postpone another vow – that customarily made in a chapel with one's previously betrothed at one's side. But the witcher reasoned with the knight, and François returned to his heart's captor to begin preparing for the day they would wed.

  • Geralt keeps the trophy:

Yet he proved unwilling to make another vow, the kind one customarily makes in a chapel with one's beloved at one's side. Instead of returning to his heart's captor he decided instead to set out in search of another monster he could face and conquer...
