Just finished Witcher 3 and got the bad ending. Properly traumatized.

Edit: As far as I can understand, the 3 places I went wrong were: Telling Ciri she doesn’t have to be good at everything, joining as backup with the mage meeting, and not trashing the lab (I thought the necklace scene was sweet).

    Yep. My understanding is you just take every supportive dialog option when talking to Ciri and that’s how you get the good ending.

      I was trying to play supportive but also a voice of reason. Ah well. Live and learn I guess.

    What’s more is I don’t have a save far enough back to correct it.

    Nothing to say, just wanted to cry a little on the internet over my poor choices.

      Consider yourself lucky, I got the good ending and had no reasons to start playing again from the beginning…

        I don’t have a ton of free time so I think I’m just going to have to be satisfied watching the endings on YouTube.

      I agree, but after playing through the trilogy and wrapping up the third with 100+ hrs, it hit hard. I wish I could have experienced a good ending first. Who knows though? Maybe I’ll look back and be glad for it. It was a masterpiece of story telling and like you said, probably the most realistic ending.

    My first play through I got the same ending, but I didn’t take as bad ending. I thought it was a cliffhanger for a DLC or another game.
