    also i didn't know you could actually win the fight with azar javed in the swamp. i thought it was one of those LOSE THIS FIGHT TO ADVANCE THE STORY type things, which i guess it was, but the short cinematic where geralt is like YOU MADE THIS CHOICE A WAYS BACK AND HERE IS THE OUTCOME made it seem like i coulda won.

    the best thing is if
    You approach Javed in not the swamp, theres a fight and a cut scene and then he insta kills you.

    Yeah, that was funny stuff. No vocal filters, no digital tomfoolery, just "Sound scary."


    It was probably a fun voice to do.
    Anyone got tips for the kikimore queen at all?

    Just don't stop for anything.
    If you're careful, once you cave in the first section, and get attacked by all the workers, you can kill all the workers and warriors by luring them into that small alcove you're in. Just inch towards the larger area until a couple of them notice you, then back up and kill them. Rinse, repeat. This way you can loot most of them before actually moving the Queen encounter forward.

    There will likely be a few Warriors that you won't be able to aggro without getting too far into the room, so just write them off as a loss. Run straight for the passage off to the right and let an Aard blast fly at one of the pillars closest to the exit and don't look back until you're safely in the passageway.

    The first time I did the Queen fight, I actually had my game bug out... I used a Blizzard when I fought the Professor, and it lasted into the start of the Queen event, but then never went away. Everything was permanently in slow-motion. Even saving and reloading didn't fix it, so I had to keep playing into the next chapter until I found a campfire. Meditating got things back to normal.

    Anyway, there's literally no reason for you to interact with the Queen at all. 'Tis futile.

    I attacked her once. It made her mad. I didn't attack her the next time and she just kinda stood there looking at me as I went into the tunnel.

    Hmm... She should tunnel underground shortly after the cutscene ends. She'll resurface once you enter the tunnel leading out of the main chamber, and chase you down.
    As you exit the tunnel, you need to hit one of the beams with an Aard shot to cause a mini-cave-in that will stall her. Then you have to deal with a swarm of Workers and Warriors, and the Queen won't bother you again until you advance all the way into the next large chamber. Once you enter that second huge chamber, she'll surface again, so you need to run away and hit another beam with Aard as you run for the exit tunnel.

    Well, the first time you do it, it's just to stall her. No way around it. The second cavern that you cave in is the one that takes her out. It's how you're supposed to beat her, you can't actually kill her yourself.
