Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition Walkthrough: Returning Memories Side Quest

Returning Memories is a special side-quest featured in Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition.

It is similar to The Assassins of Kings but unlike it, there are several clues you must discover during the game, in order to complete it.

If you manage to complete this quest you will earn additional experience points, and you will help Geralt regain his lost memories.

Returning Memories is connected with the ending of the novel written by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Below, you will find the clues that will help you complete the Returning Memories quest:


During Roche’s interrogation, and after the quest called Blood of His Blood, you will be asked what would you do if you could escape. Make sure you answer with ‘’I’d hunt down the killer”, to activate the quest and trigger the first cutscene, which shows Roche revealing your file.

Roche’s file offers more information regarding the events that took place in Rivia.

“The interrogation in the dungeon of the La Valette Castle took its toll on Geralt. The Witcher’s body, despite its mutations, was beat up, bruised and scarred. At one point, Geralt experienced a shock so extreme that it elicited an old memory – all of a sudden, the witcher recalled the moments of his death.

Once more he relived his demise in Rivia. Once more, he lay on the ground, pierced by a peasant’s pitchfork. Once more he bled to death. When another vision came to him a few days later, Geralt knew that he was gradually recovering his memory.”

Act 1

When you complete the interrogation of Ciaran (after Indecent Proposal) you will trigger another cutscene which updates the quest, adding more information on what happened to Geralt.

“Another vision also came during an interrogation, but this time, Iorveth’s adjutant was the one interrogated. The smell of apples brought a memory of the Isle of Avallach, a mysterious land where Geralt arrived after the events in Rivia.

The witcher once more lived through the wondrous experience of that place, but he was not to cherish them for long. Wonder turned into fury when Geralt saw a woman being kidnapped by the Wild Hunt. The abducted was very important to him. The witcher realized that searching for her became his main goal in life.”

After the Rose of Remembrance, the quest updates again:

“Triss Merigold decided to accelerate the process by which Geralt will recover his memory. She wanted to use magic and needed a rose of remembrance for her spell.”

Complete Where is Triss Merigold? quest to receive a new update:

“However Triss Merigold was kidnapped before she could prepare an infusion from the wondrous flower. Geralt did not regain his memory and had to make do with the remaining visions that occurred during his pursuit of the assassins of kings.”

Act 2 – Following Iorveth’s Path

After Royal Blood, a new update is added to your journal:

“After ending the conversation with Shilard, Geralt experienced the vision of a journey, a trek across the world in pursuit of the Wiled Hunt.

Yet the Hunt remained elusive all the while. The witcher felt bitterness of disappointment and defeat, but also staunch determination. He now realized how much he had invested in the search for the woman abducted from the Isle of Avallach.”

When you complete The Eternal Battle you will receive the following update

“Another vision came to him after Geralt defeated the draught and passed out. The witcher realized he had known all the kingslayers earlier and had even saved Letho’s life when the killer was poisoned by a Manticore.

In his vision, Geralt joined forces with the three mysterious men. Together they tracked the Wild Hunt.”

Act 3 – Following Iorveth’s Path

At the end of the third act, while playing the final part of The Assassins of Kings quest, Letho will help you access a new memory during your discussion with him:

„The meeting with Letho opened up another door in Geralt’s mind. The witcher saw the hangman’s tree, and the King of the Hunt, his wraiths and the people they had abducted. Among them was a woman he had been searching for – the sorceress Yennefer. Geralt had not come there alone – Letho, Egan and Serrit were at his side.

Together they fought the Hunt. When the combat ended in a stalemate, the witcher made a pact with the spectral King – he gave himself in exchange for the lives of Yennefer and Letho. He joined the Wilt Hunt, but his beloved was free.  Geralt belonged to the Wild Hunt for years, crossing the sky as a harbinger of war and other disasters. At that time, he lost his memory and disappeared from the world of the living.

Until reappearing before the walls of Kaer Morhen.”
