Lynch Mob is a Secondary Quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This is a MISSABLE quest in Spitfire Bluff Hangman's Alley in Velen - you must intervene as you encounter the mob. If you begin the quest A Favor for a Friend, this quest cannot be completed.


" Should a soldier be held responsible for the decisions of his commanding officers? Is collective responsibility justice? To us, dear reader, these are rhetorical questions. Geralt, however, often found himself forced to answer them - and quickly. For example, once in Velen he happened across a group of villagers preparing to lynch a captured Nilfgaardian deserter. Not for the first time, the witcher had to decide which was the lesser evil...
The witcher made his decision. He defended the deserter and earned the peasants' ire. They attacked at once, and thus in order to save one man he had to kill many others."

The Witcher 3 Lynch Mob Quest Walkthrough: How to save the deserter and complete this objective

  • Arrive at Hangman's Alley in Splitfire Bluff, Velen
  • You will notice a mob ready to hang a Nilfgaardian deserter
  • The mob is not moved by Geralt's words so you will have to kill them to complete the quest. Failing to kill the peasants and allowing them to carry through yields no rewards.
  • After you defeat the mob, the deserter will explain that he has received word from his wife that she has given birth and pleaded for him to return.

Like most quests, this can be a moral quandary but given that your options are to let a man hang for the crime of returning to his family or take on some angry peasants and get experience, it's likely you will pick to defeat them and free the soldier.

 

Notes & Trivia

  • Allowing the mob to hang the deserters voids the quest, preventing it from logging onto your journal.
  • Progressing the sidequests to "A Favor for a Friend" fails this quest
