Little Shop of Dreams is a Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition side-quest activated while playing The Scent of Incense.
This specific side-quest determines the events that occur in The Scent of Incense.
The quest is automatically triggered when you speak to the civilians located near the scaffold in Flotsam.
“In Flotsams town square, Geralt met some inhabitants protesting against a shopkeeper for selling dubious herbs. As you know, witchers and herbalists always meet aversion, but in this case, it turned out a little different.
The protesters leader, Matilda Szabo, asked Geralt to make the shopkeeper close his business.”
When to start
The quest starts automatically
Approach the shopkeeper named Vilmos Bartok, located in front of the group led by Matilda. Ask him if he sells drugs, and then choose your next action carefully. You have two options:
Intimidate Vilmos by telling him that you will talk to Loredo.
Persuade Vilmos by telling him how exceptional his items are.
Note: You should try to intimidate the vendor, but keep in mind that if you fail, the formula he gives you is fake. You will be able to complete The Scent of Incense side quest but there will be no reward for you.
If you are not sure about the results, try to persuade Vilmos.
After you get the formula, talk to Matilda to complete the Little Shop of Dreams side-quest, then visit the harbor and find Vencel Pugg to continue The Scent of Incense.
