#2 Of Swords and Dumplings,
Gameplay Diaries; The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Hearts of Stone
Those who have gone deep into the base game may well recognise this quest from their time in Novigrad. For those who have not as you begin Hearts of Stones a nudge in the form of a pop up message advises you to seek out the Sword-smith Hattori. After completing one or two quests you will be rewarded for your time and effort with a shiny new blade worthy of the challenge that awaits you (well initially anyway).
The quests are pretty easy and thanks to the fast travel system finding Hattori is pretty easy. You have a mixture of the usual city tasks from barter to coercion to a spot of vandalism (depending on how you play things) and even a few rounds of fisticuffs to keep the blood flowing.
Of course a Witchers blades are essential to their trade so spend the time on this little slice of gameplay.
