The Fall of the House of Reardon 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.

The Fall of the House of Reardon can be obtained either by collecting the notice off of the Notice Board in Lindenvale or speaking to Dolores Reardon marked with a yellow exclamation mark after her argument with another villager is done at Lindenvale in Velen. She asks for aid in clearing her family's manor of monsters. 


Continuing his tour of rural Velen, Geralt stopped by the village of Lindenvale. There he came across a grief-stricken old woman. The cause of her woe? She was homeless, a monster having made its nest in her family manor and forced her into a rental situation elsewhere that had recently proven unaffordable. When Geralt approached her, she asked him to rid her manor of this beast. In return she gave him a precious token - the key to the chest in which she claimed to keep her life savings. Geralt couldn't refuse to help an elderly person in need, especially not one so eager to reward him handsomely for it, and so decided to do as she asked.

She will ask you to help her get rid of the monsters, she'll then give you a key to unlock a box inside the manor as your reward if you agree to help her.

If you spared Letho, you will be able to spot multiple traps set outside the manor, you will also notice there aren't any monsters lurking around. This will also activate another side quest called Ghosts of the Past. You may disarm the traps if you like. Then head into the barn, you will find Letho there.

If you want to earn more XP, head outside the back of the barn, you will find a hidden stairway that will lead you down the cellar. If you encountered wraiths earlier, there is a chance they will spawn here as well. Continue your path and head towards the furthest room in the cellar, you will find a wall you can destroy. Enter the destroyed wall and examine the skeleton you see, as well as the paper nearby.

You can now head back to Dolores, if you examined the skeleton, you will reveal this information to her, Dolores will be sad knowing that her husband killed her brother, but she will still thank you afterward.

      Lol during my 1st playthrough, I was around lvl 9 when I did this mission and as I approached the manor a leshen spawned in along with a couple wraiths and it took about 30 min just to kill the leshen.
