Open Sesame: Breaking and Entering is a Main Quest from the Hearts of Stone DLC in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Main Quests are the main storyline of the game that can have a major effect towards the endings. Some of these quests may have dialogue choices that will alter the ending of the game.

Open Sesame: Breaking and Entering is a part of the Open Sesame!
Main Quest in the Hearts of Stone DLC. 


Robbing a building requires, at a bare minimum, finding a way inside it. The mysterious man who convinced Geralt to take part in the heist determined the only way to break into the carefully guarded auction house was via an adjacent tower. Geralt thus needed to hire someone capable of climbing up its glass-smooth outer wall and dropping a line down to the others. Only two maestros of the burglar's trade could perform such a feat: Hugo Hoff, affectionately known as "Beef Patty," and Eveline Gallo, alias "the Ermine."

  1. Go to the house where Hugo Hoff is hiding.

  1. Explore around the house using your Witcher Senses.

Walkthrough for The Witcher 3 Open Sesame: Breaking and Entering

This quest begins while progressing through the Open Sesame! Quest and agreeing to follow through with the heist.  The quest will activate once you are tasked to Recruit the rest of the crew and prepare for the robbery.

Your first objective will be to Go to the house where Hugo Hoff is hiding. Once you reach the area, you can explore the area and follow the blood tracks with your Witcher Senses activated. This will lead you to the shore with bandits. Defeat the thugs to clear the objective then you must search the riverbank for clues. Enter the search area in the water and dive down.

Your only option will then be to convince Eveline Gello to participate in the robbery. Track the quest and you will find her. Speak to her and ask her to work with you. She will give you the option to replace someone during a performance or refund the tickets that she paid for. This will cost you 600 crowns. If you agree to perform, you will need to shoot a few apple targets with your crossbow.  After your interaction, you would've successfully gained an extra crew member for the heist and completed the quest.


Open Sesame: Breaking and Entering Journals

If you try to recruit Hugo:
Unfortunately, Hugo Hoff was unable to join the witcher's crew. The reason was a common one in criminal circles – someone hat fitted him with a stone necktie and tossed him in a deep stretch of the Pontar. The halfling had learned the hard way that, all too often, crime does not pay.
In the end, Geralt recruited Eveline Gallo to join the heist. This was not a very difficult task – he had the impression the performer was just waiting for an excuse to escape from the circus tent for a moment and once again savor the taste of a true adventure.
