So which game content is new?

#1 Posted by xyzygy (9867 posts) -

I just beat the game. It was so good. Just curious though - I know about the changelog of animations and stuff like that, but which actual quests are new with the Enhanced Edition?

ALL the dlc is added. Stuff like troll trouble is new. The epilogue I think is new. The dark items are also new.

I want to say the quests involving those two counts were new. I think some others ones were as well but I'm unsure.

Weirdly enough I only just beat it myself. I believe there is a quest I did involving Cynthia that I completed which isn't in the original, The Secrets of Loc Muinne I think.

At least the following (side) quests:

For Roche's path: "Lilies and Vipers" with the subquests

  • "Crown Witness"
  • "Pacta Sunt Servanta" (sic)
  • "The Messenger"

For Iorveth's path: "The Secrets of Loc Muinne"

Both during Act III, in Loc Muinne.

More information about these quests can be found on the last pages of the Quest Handbook that came with the game.

Wile we are on the subject. How do you get the pest control Achivement? Does it need two play thoughs?

@The_Laughing_Man: You can get it in one playthrough (I got it on my first playthrough, was on Roche's path). You need to beat all the "contract" quests to get it. Doing some research, that would be the Nekker, Endrega, Rotfiend, and Gargoyle contracts on Roche's path, and Iorveth's path involves the Nekker, Endrega, Harpy, Harpy Queen, and Gargoyle contracts.

You cant finish the harpy contract with Roche from what I heard.

I just finished my first play through and I went with Roche. I got that achievement as soon as I finished the gargoyle contract. As mentioned, the others I did were the nekker, endrega, and rotfiend.

@The_Laughing_Man: I should have worded it better, but you just need to complete all contract quests on the path you take. So to get the achievement on Roche's path, you never need to do the harpy or harpy queen quest (not like you could do it anyways, but I could be wrong, it has been a year since I played the game).

Thats what confused me. Thanks. I skipped the gargoyal on the elf path cause I didnt wanna deal with the guards chasing me.

Wow, the Epilogue is new? How was that NOT in the original game? It explains SO MUCH of really central plot points...

@d0rks: Cool, thanks. It's funny because "Secrets of Loc Muinne" was actually my favorite quest in the game, from Iorveth's path at least. :) Good to know that there are 3 more quests for my Roche playthrough, which I am starting right now!

is the epilogue updated beyond just talkin with Letho? that was basically it as far as the original was concerned.

If you have the new Handbook it actually shows which sidequests were added.
