At the start of The Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt you can either

  • import a savegame (PC only)
  • select the decisions you made in Witcher 2 (Simulate Witcher 2 Decisions)
  • skip the whole import of decisions

If you chose to select the decisions (or import a savegame) there are 5 major decisions which will have some kind of impact on the game.

Care: The Witcher 2 - Assassin of Kings Spoilers ahead

These decisions depend on if you:

  1. killed or spared Aryan LaValette
  2. sided with Iorveth or Roche
  3. saved Triss or saved Saskia/Anais
  4. saved Sile de Tancarville or let her die
  5. killed or spared Letho

If you chose not to import any of your decisions, what will be the (supposedly default/canon) world-state regarding these decisions?

Just to clarify things: I'm not asking about the actual impact of decisions, I just want to know, what the game assumes on default if you don't import any decisions.


After researching on the web for a good hour I stumbled across some of the answers and I will collect them here:

  1. Aryan LaVlette was killed
  2. Sided with Roche at the end of chapter 1
  3. unknown :/ this is the only point that I couldn't find
  4. Sile de Tancarville is dead
  5. Letho was killed

If I find the answer to 3 I will update this answer. This is completely based on a lot of forum posts and some people who played through the default world state.

  • Could you please add the sourced for the answer.

  • saving Triss can be assumed to be the default canon story rewrite seeing as how Triss is in Witcher 3
