Treasure Hunts are Quests in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. They are special quests that can be activated by interacting with specific inanimate objects. These are objects that inform the player of specific regions or places to investigate and will further provide information and details before the next objective is revealed. These objectives are optional and players can choose to abandon the quest objectives at any time. Completing these quests do not reward players with additional XP unlike regular Secondary Quests,  but like regular quests, these quests will also provide a recommended level. The recommended level is calculated based on the difficulty and strength of the anticipated combat encounters while progressing through each quests. Below is a list of all the available Treasure Hunts.

How to start a Treasure Hunt Witcher 3

Treasure Hunts begin uniquely by interacting with objects that can be encountered in different Locations while exploring the game in Witcher 3. These quests can be activated by looting certain key objects or Items found in chests or on a body. The key objects will usually come in the form of special Notes or Letters. The treasure hunt objects can especially be pinpointed while using Geralt's Witcher Senses in key areas. Players will be notified when in the vicinity of one of these areas giving them a New Marker for Hidden Treasure. Interacting with the right object will also immediately activate the New Quest. The Quest title will then be displayed along with the option to track the Treasure Hunt quest. This will also then give you the next objective. This usually includes observing the newly obtained object or notes from the inventory.
