The Witcher 2: How to Beat Letho
Defeating Letho in The Witcher 2 can be challenging. For those struggling with this boss, this guide provides some useful strategies.
Fortunately, there are many ways players can make money fast in The Witcher 2. Players can make money fast by visiting bars and taverns, but other ways largely go unnoticed. Keeping this in mind, this blog will highlight how players can farm Orens in The Witcher 2, along with other useful information.
Best Methods of Farming Orens in The Witcher 2
Here are some of the best ways of farming Orens in The Witcher 2:
- Playing Minigames
Players good at minigames like fighting, dice poker, and arm wrestling can make a decent scratch.
During the game’s first chapter, indulge in arm wrestling matches and pub brawls. Locate NPC characters like Adam Pangratt and Bart Bargee to win additional Orens by challenging them to arm wrestling matches. Additionally, make it a point to wrestle the dwarf in a Vergen tavern to get bonus Orens by betting on the match.
While dice poker can earn more Orens, it can get boring fast. But then again, players can make a ton of change by winning dice poker games and getting combinations like One Pair, Full House, Six-high Straight, and Five-of-a-kind. Moreover, look for quests associated with dice poker games, like “Poker Face: Flotsam” to win more Orens with each win.
- Sell Items
A great way to earn Orens involves selling items that are not in use. Also, kill Kaedweni and Scoiatel enemies to get Blue Mountain Swords and earn more Orens than usual items. Most importantly, do not forget to complete monster contracts available on the Notice Board to get monster parts for brewing potions or sell them for a profit.
- Farm Harpies
One of the best ways to farm Orens is by killing Harpies during chapter two.
Since Harpy feathers fetch quite the price, nine Orens each, players should not focus on other monster parts.
To farm Harpy feathers, follow these steps:
- Go to the Quarry near the main Vergen Gate.
- Look for a wooden cabin.
- Meditate until midnight.
- Fight the Harpies that spawn.
- Meditate again for the Harpies to respawn, and rinse and repeat.
Use the Aard sign to inflict heavy damage to the Harpies.
