In Witcher 3, certain Quests and Actions can only be performed during the Day or Night. What hour does each start at? I thought that 6 am and onwards would be Day, but I notice that at least 5 am and possibly earlier is also considered Daytime.

  • How did you notice that 5 am already counts as daytime?

  • I have an ability that heals me when it's day time, and it was between 5 am and 6 am and I was already being healed. If I pay closer attention I'm sure I can eventually figure out the times, but I thought it was common knowledge perhaps.

Daytime is considered the time between 4:00 a.m. and 9:59 p.m. and so night time is between 10:00 p.m. and 3:59 a.m.

More precisely, the time is divided into four categories:

Morning between 4:00 a.m. and 9:59 a.m.

Noon between 10:00 a.m. and 3:59 p.m.

Evening between 4:00 p.m. and 9:59 p.m.

Night between 10:00 p.m. and 3:59 a.m.

Morning, noon and evening all count as daytime, since the ability "Sun and Stars" regenerates Geralt's health during that time.

  • Thanks! Would you also happen to know what time shops open?

All I know that when they say "meet me at sundown" or something along those lines then it means after 6pm.
