Patch 1.20 Unlimited Money & Crafting Materials
This exploit / glitch gives you infinite money and crafting materials within minutes (working with Patch 1.20 on Blood and Wine DLC)! You can get millions of crowns per minute with it. Want to fully upgrade the Corvo Bianco or craft all Grandmaster Witcher Sets? No problem with this glitch.
Step 1: Go to White Orchard Armorer. If you haven’t already you must do his side quest. Then buy EVERYTHING from him you can. The more money he has, the more you will get. If he has 100,000+ crowns you can make millions in a minute.
Step 2: Go to the bee hive further north of the town (by a building near the road).
Step 3: Use Aard on the beehive to push it to the armorer. This works best at night when nobody is on the streets.
Step 4: When the beehive is close enough it will kill the armorer. Then meditate for 1 hour to make armorer respawn.
Step 5: Each time you meditate the armorer will respawn & die instantly. This makes him drop his entire inventory will all the crafting components AND the money you gave him. The more money you gave him, the quicker this will go.
Step 6: When you’ve farmed enough push away the beehive to pick up the loot. This will give you tons of money and crafting materials.
Step 7: To avoid being overburdened go to the inventory and drop saddles / saddle bags / Repair Kits / Lead / Parchment.
Step 8: If you want to farm more you can put the beehive in place again and meditate to make the armorer respawn. You can also buy more of his stuff to increase his money. Then he will drop even more and it goes quicker.
Tested on PS4 with Patch 1.20 and Blood & Wine DLC installed.
You will need a lot of money for the trophies / achievements “Playing House” and “Dressed to Kill”. Buying dyes for your armor is also very expensive.

David and Golyat
Kill Golyat with a crossbow bolt to his eye.
When arriving in Toussaint the first thing you will have to do is fight a giant boss called “Golyat”. This is an unmissable main quest (start of the DLC).
He has a wooden barrel on his head for protection. The barrel is missing a small piece in the middle. You must shoot through it with your crossbow to hit Golyat’s eye. Weaken him until he is almost dead. Then just keep shooting at the middle of the barrel with the strongest crossbow you have.
If the boss dies by other means you can reload the last checkpoint to try again.
BOTH TROPHIES / ACHIEVEMENTS ARE MISSABLE!!!
For this you have to get the good and bad game endings. Your choices from the main quest “The Night of Long Fangs” and beyond will influence the outcome. You can get both of them in one go if you make a clever manual save. See instructions below:
Step 1: In “The Night of Long Fangs” choose the dialogue choice “Considering freeing Syanna. Let’s talk to Damien”. This is right after defeating the Bruxa at the start of the quest.
Step 2: Do the objectives to help Syanna and finish the quest. This will trigger a new main quest “Beyond Hill and Dale”.
Step 3: Before talking to the Little Flint Girl create a manual save game. You can do the other objectives up until the point where you need to plant the 3 beans. Just be sure you haven’t talked to the Flint Girl when you make your manual save.
Kling of the Clink: Complete the story without ever talking to the Little Flint Girl. Completely ignore her, never talk to her at all. Then Syanna will die and you get thrown into prison – bad ending.
Last Action Hero: Talk to the Little Flint Girl and get the Ribbon from her (win a match of Gwent or buy it for 500 crowns). Then Syanna lives and the duchess will knight you – good ending. Simply reload your save game to get back to the Flint Girl.
It’s also worth noting that you can get “Last Action Hero” by choosing to help the Unseen Elder in “The Knight of Long Fangs”. Then you just need to finish the story and it will unlock. By making a manual save game at the Little Flint Girl you can save some time and don’t have to replay the entire quest.
A Knight to Remember
Obtain a flawless victory in all the competitions during the knights’ tourney.
THIS IS HIGHLY MISSABLE!!!
The Knights’ Tourney is part of a side quest called “The Warble of a Smitten Knight”. It will be added to your quest journal automatically during the main story mission “The Beast of Toussaint”.
You can miss this trophy / achievement in several ways. If you lose a competition or make a wrong dialogue choice you can’t unlock it. The one dialogue choice you have to look out for is after the third competition and after following the bird into the woods. You must choose the dialogue option “Wanna finish the tourney” to continue (otherwise you get kicked out).
The official trophy descritpion is also a bit misleading. You don’t need a “flawless” or “perfect” victory. Just winning each match is good enough. It doesn’t matter if you win only by a little or if you make mistakes. As long as you win all 5 competitions the trophy will unlock.
The video shows only the relevant parts for the trophy (competitions and missable dialogue choices). The quest takes much longer than that and there’s a lot of running around. Just follow the quest markers.
#1 – Crossbow Target Shooting – 0:30
#2 – Horse Race – 1:02
#3 – Mounted Duel – 4:07
#4 – Arena Fight 5v5 – 5:06
#5 – Arena Fight 1v1 – 5:59
THIS IS MISSABLE!!!
For this you must finish the side quest “There Can Only Be One”. It starts by either talking to the quest giver or getting all notes off the quest board in Beauclair. In it you have to get 5 virtues by making certain dialogue choices throughout the DLC. There are only limited opoortunities available for each virtue and they are all missable. In this guide I show you the 5 earliest in the DLC (you can get them all within the first 30 minutes). Just be aware that there are more than these. If you missed one keep playing and you might unlock it by accident. If you finished the DLC and are still missing something, start a new DLC only playthrough from the main game to quickly get all 5 on a fresh playthrough.
#1 [0:37] – Compassion – Main QUest: The Beast of Toussaint – After fighting the Shalemaar in the arena decide to spare its life.
#2 [1:27] – Generosity – Go to Main Square of Beauclair and a child will deliver a letter to you. Give him 5 crowns for his trouble.
#3 [2:14] – Honor – Side Quest: The Warble of a Smitten Knight – After the horse race choose to accept the mounted duel against the prince and win it.
#4 [3:33] – Valor – Side Quest: The Warble of a Smitten Knight – After following the girl into the woods and returning to camp, decide to finish the tourney and win.
#5 [5:13] – Wisdom – Main Quest: La Cage Au Fou – Thoroughly explore the WIght’s Lair and when hiding in the closet try to lift the curse instead of attacking.
THIS IS MISSABLE!!!
Step 1: Talk to Liam and Matilda at the “Plegmund’s Bridge” fast travel signpost. This triggers two side quests “Wine Wars: Vermentino” and “Wine Wars: Coronata”.
Steo 2: In “Wine Wars: Vermentino” (at Objective 3/5) you must read the note. DO NOT COMPLETE THIS QUEST YET!
Step 3: In “Wine Wars: Coronata” (at Objective 2/5) you must read another note. This triggers a new quest “Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina”. Do this quest immediately.
Step 4: Complete Quest “Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina”. Do not complete the other Wine Wars quests yet or you will miss the trophy/achievement!
Step 5: Return to Liam and Matilda they will give you a new quest “Wine Wars: Consorting”.
Step 6: Complete “Wine Wars: Consorting”. Just follow the quest markers, nothing to worry about here. Return to Liam and Matilda once the quest is done.
Step 7: Upon completing the quest you will automatically start “Wine Wars: Belgraad”. Complete it by following the quest markers. Nothing special to do here.
Step 8: If you did everything correctly, Liam and Matilda will ask you to wait for 3 days at the end of the quest. Just meditate for 3 days. As a thanks for your help they have a surprise for you – a wine named after you! After talking to them the trophy / achievement will pop.
– If you complete either of the first two wine wars quests only one person is going to get the Belgraad vineyard. Then they won’t name a wine after you and the trophy will be missed. The important part is to do “The Deus in the Machina” quest before returning to Liam and Matilda.
Hasta la Vista™
Kill a frozen opponent with a crossbow bolt.
First you must craft a Northern Wind bomb (freezes enemies). If you don’t have it already you can purchase the formula at the Herbalist’s Hut in Novigrad. Now go to some low level bandits (e.g. Devil’s Pit in Velen). Weaken the enemies with a few crossbow shots. When their health is low you throw a Northern Wind bomb at them. This will freeze the enemies and you have a few seconds to finish them off with the crossbow.
On lowest difficulty the enemies will die much quicker.
