A meeting with the WalThemor Mitty (WalThemor Mitty) was captured by the user of YouTube under the pseudonym Whatsmygame. The tax collector will accuse Geralt of the sale of cow’s skins in the vicinity of the White Garden, the use of a fraudulent scheme related to the sale of pearls in Novirades, and the assignment of someone else’s property. Volemor will say that the hero’s actions contradict the Civil Code, and will demand to pay a fine of 200 % of the income at Vivaldi Bank. However, as you can verify by the video, avoiding punishment is not difficult: it is enough to answer all the collector questions negatively.
In the first case, we are talking about exploit, which allowed an endless number of times to kill cows in this location and sell their skins (after meditation, animals appeared again). The amount of gold, which could be earned in this way, was limited only to the state of merchants. The second exploit was the possibility of turning shells of mollusks into pearls without any restrictions, then sell them for Florens, and then exchange Florene for crowns at the Novigrad bank. Thus, in less than an hour you could get 100 thousand. crown.

About how the series will develop further, the artist «has no idea». «If this is the end of the series, then we are satisfied with this — it ended on a high note, and we are ready to move on, — he said. — But, be that as it may, our capabilities are limited only by our imagination. [With this series] you can do anything. It is possible that one day it will return in a completely different form — not games, but something completely different».
A few days earlier, rumors spread that the second addon, Blood and Wine («Blood and wine»), will appear later than the indicated deadlines. The press release received by reporters noted that the addition would not be released in the first quarter, as previously reported, but in the first half of 2016.
