"A hunter who knows his prey's habits and behavior will rarely return from his hunt empty-handed. To know what forest paths deer are like to trod, to know in what muck boars will wallow, to guess when a hare will emerge from its burrow - that is half the battle.
What most men do not know is that some monsters also possess knowledge. For example, a royal wyvern from Velen had learned the danger of exposing itself to human eyes and arrows by flying high to pick out is prety from afar. Instead, it would lurk by the roadside and wait for military transports. In this way it grew fat on sated pork and beer, expanding until it resembled a dragon more than other, leser members of its own kind.
The witcher thus knew this beast would be much stronger and resilient than a normal wyvern. Even one blow from it could kill - which is why he would need to avoid its charge at all costs. He would also be wise to force it to the ground with this crossbow or a bomb whenever it tried to fly int eh air and hurtle down in a deadly dive.
In the end the witcher slew the hideous creature, though not without some difficulty. Thanks to this feat, the soldiers could once again send shipments of the food and equipment needed to condut the war. Whether that was a good or bad thing - that is an entirely different mattter."
