Ghosts of the Past
Ghosts of the Past 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.
Ghosts of the Past is a unique quest that is only available if you spared Letho in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. If starting on a brand new save without simulating a Witcher 2 save, this quest is unavailable. This quest can be obtained by approaching Reardon Manor in Velen, where you'll find traps littering the grounds of the manor supposedly infested by monsters.
What does one expect to find inside an abandoned country manor? Dusty crockery. Moth-eaten doilies. A moldy trophy buck, perhaps, if its inhabitants trod on the wild side. Certainly not the most wanted man north or south of the Yaruga. Yet that, dear reader, is exactly who Geralt found when he entered such a manor in Lindenvale. The assassin of kings himself, Geralt's old acquaintance, his sometime friend and sometime enemy: Letho. He was hiding there from bounty hunters out for his scalp. Geralt, now fully able to remember how Letho and two of his colleagues once saved Yennefer's life, could not refuse him help.

Geralt will find Letho and he will explain the events that happened after what transpired at Loc Muinne, he has been on the run and in hiding ever since. He asks Geralt to go meet his friend Louis right after taking care of the Mercenaries, you will see Letho butchering 6 men and at the end, he will fall by a crossbow bolt. Here you have 2 choices:
- If you decide to diffuse the situation the men will want to claim the bounty placed on Letho, instead Geralt will convince them to take the Medalion.
- If you decide to intervene a fight will occur and the attackers will be killed
Afterward, Geralt will investigate the corpse of Letho, to discover that a poison was applied to make him look dead. Geralt will decide to invite Letho to stay in Kaer Morhen after.
The Witcher 3 Ghosts of the Past Notes & Trivia
- Takes place in the same quest area as the quest The Fall of the House of Reardon.
- This quest would only be available if the player chose to allow Letho to leave alive during the final confrontation in Loc Muine. This choice can be made either by using a witcher 2 save or choosing to let Letho live when being interrogated by the Nilfgaardians about the events of the past.
