What To Do With The Magic Acorn In The Witcher 3?

Gain bonus skill points.

There are several magical and mysterious items to find in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. One of these items is the Magic Acorn. Said to have healing properties, Magic Acorns grow from a giant oak tree on the very top of Bald Mountain in Velen.

There are all sorts of rumors floating about the item, but the game never explicitly tells you what to do with it. The following guide will tell you where to find a Magic Acorn and how to correctly use it in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

How to get the Magic Acorn in The Witcher 3

You will not be able to get a Magic Acorn until the third act. To acquire it, you’ll have to reach the peak of Bald Mountain to fight Imlerith, one of the generals of the Wild Hunt.

After Ciri’s fight with the Crones, you’ll start as Geralt standing near the top of the mountain. From your location, climb up and find a Place of Power on your right. The path continues going up from this point. Follow it, and soon you’ll reach the location of Imlerith.

When you finally defeat him, a cutscene will immediately start, and Ciri will appear and ask you about leaving for Novigrad. You have to select “Not quite yet” from the dialogue choices to stay back.

Once you tell Ciri that you are staying, you will be able to loot Imlerith to get a Magic Acorn.

If you’re unable to loot Imlerith’s body or leave with Ciri immediately after she asks you to, you can come back later and climb the mountain once more, where you’ll find Imlerith’s body, and you’ll be free to loot it.

To reach the body, fast travel to the nearest point to the bald mountain, Road to Bald Mountain, and start to go up. Keep going until you reach the village, which would then lead to the cave where Ciri fought during the quest Bald Mountain.

Continue down the cave until you reach its end. Cross the bridge and go upwards until you reach the area where you fought Imlerith. His body may not be in the same place, so look around to find his body and loot it to collect the Magic Acorn in The Witcher 3.

You can use the console command function on your PC to give yourself an infinite supply of magic acorns. To do so, open the console command box by using the ‘~’ key and then type in ‘q111_imlerith_acorn’. You can repeat this as many times as you’d like.

It is important to note that you can not dupe the magic acorn using the infinite money glitch in The Witcher 3, so either collecting it in the game or adding it to your inventory through console commands is the only way to acquire this item.

Should you keep the Magic Acorn or give it away?

There are two things that you can do with the Magic Acorn. You have the option of giving it away to the villagers in Velen or keeping it for yourself.

If you keep the acorn for yourself and eat it, you’ll gain two skill points. However, if you give it to the villagers, you can come back 30 days later to get a total of three acorns from the giant oak tree. Consuming all three will give you a total of 6 skill points.

Choosing to give the acorn to the villagers is the better option overall, as you’ll gain four additional skill points. It is important to note that the 30 days mentioned above are in-game days. You can simply meditate 30 times to get your reward quicker.
