    The Quest should't be any Problem, but if you wonder why you can't complate the Quest: you need to finsh the Main Quest Ladies of the Wood.

    Can someone confirm the Hint by SilvrgunSuprman?
    I finally got this to unlock this morning. I would say this achievement IS missable. When you have the conversation with the Baron you have to agree to go with him to the swamp; even if you don't agree the Baron will convince you to come and you kill the Fiend by the Crones hut BUT you won't get the achievement. Just keep agreeing with everything the Baron says and it should unlock.

    Master AOFinished this mission and Ladies of the Woods, nothing unlocked. Pretty frustrating...is there any post mission conversation I could have missed?

    SilvrgunSuprmanDidn't unlock for me either...Nothing left to do in Velen and its telling me to go to Novigrad. I hate buggy achievements.

    WhyattThrashIf you could confirm that those choices are actually the unlock criteria, and other choices void the achievement you should definitely post that as a solution.

    YinI agreed with literally every dialog option, went to the bog with the Baron, killed the Fiend. The end result was the daughter going with the Eternal Fire, and the Baron off to see the healer.

    No achievement.

    WhyattThrashJust for disclusore, my choice that netted the achievement:

    I chose
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    which led to the mother
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    the daughter
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    and the Baron

    I don't think the choices really matter though, like for "King's Gambit", I think that the achievement might just be bugged and you should just try completing the mission as many times as needed until it pops.

    Yin@SilvrgunSuprman, how far back did you go when you attempted to get the achievement again? I'm not exactly sure when this achievement is supposed to unlock, is it supposed to after the dialog about going to swamp?

    I've reverted about an hours worth of progress and followed your suggestion to a T, with no luck. I'll keep trying.


    I wonder if having the Whispering Hillock quest completed prior to tackling this quest can void the achievement. I resolved that quest while exploring and thus had it finished when getting to this point. I still find that difficult to believe with a 67% unlock rate.

    YinA performed a hard reset of my console when my Brawl Master achievement didn't unlock as well. Upon doing that, and the end of this quest again, the achievements unlocked. So I can confirm that if an achievement isn't unlocking, make a save prior to the unlock condition and try again after a hard reset.

    Andrinho7xWhat SilvrgunSuprman said worked for me. I have the GOTY Edition and this achievement wasn't unlocking. I tried hard resetting and killing the fiend multiple times without luck. But then I reloaded a previous save, talked to the baron again about his wife and immediately agreed to follow him to the swamp. Achievement unlocked after the dialogue, when the quest "Family matters" was completed, before following the Baron through the swamp and meeting his wife and daughter again.

    DoRk60My guess is that the not unlocking problem is goty edition only. You have to agree to go to the swamp immediately with the baron. Achievements unlocks right after that dialog.
