Okay so The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone is the next big thing that Geralt fans are eyeing up. While CD Projekt Red has not divulged everything there is to know; we have picked up some hints that suggest it is going have some sort of an event that will have a permanent effect on Geralt.
The source of this are some leaked dialogues between Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer and Triss; if you are not really fond of spoilers we suggest you stop reading right now.
So in the dialogue, Geralt is worried if the mark is “hard on the eyes;” insisting that “it’s driving me crazy,” he asks Ciri, Triss as well as Yennefer “if can you do anything about it” i.e. if it can be removed somehow.
While none of the characters specifically refer to what it is about or where it came from, there are hints that it is not something small in importance.
For instance, Triss inquires “what’ve you gotten yourself into now,” and saying that she can’t do anything about it she further adds that “I doubt anyone else’ll be able to.”
Even more important is Yennefer’s reply in one situation which reads “these symbols… it’s ancient, powerful magic. I’ve no notion how to remove them.” This is definitely a clear evidence that we are talking about something important in The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone expansion.
There you have it; we are not sure what this is or when that mark appears and why, but hopefully The Witcher 3 Hearts of Stone will answer these questions.
