I have just finished the main story line for the first time, but I know that the game has many possible endings.

I know there are websites out there with all the steps that you need to take to possibly save Ciri. (I have skimmed over some of these sites) but I basically just want to know if it is possible to save Ciri. Yes or No, without the spoilers on how to save her.

    This title is a bit (a lot actually) spoilery for those who haven't played or finished the game yet. Can you edit your answer to fix this, please? – Aventinus Mar 8 '16 at 14:02
  • The Witcher has been out forever. The asker asked a question, and didn't dance around it. That's fine. At most, an edit should change the title. Adding spoiler tags for a character in the body is unnecessary. – Frank Mar 8 '16 at 15:06

    @Frank - I have to respectfully disagree. The game hasn't been out for even a year yet. Even then, spoilers are not constricted to a time basis. Given that, the title would still be a spoiler to anyone happening across it. I can see why the body would not need to be changed, but I simply did it while I was already editing the title. I'm going to do a quick post on meta for my personal reference :) – Broots Waymb Mar 8 '16 at 15:13

    They should be able to find it, actually. SEO doesn't just look at the title; it takes the body into account, too. – Frank Mar 8 '16 at 22:37

    RULE OF THUMB: if the only way you can think of to remove spoilers from a question title is by removing all of the nouns, it's not a good question title, and you should probably leave the 'spoiler.' – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 9 '16 at 1:07

Since you're just asking for a yes or no answer, I can help you out:

Yes. I have done one complete playthrough (halfway through my second) and Ciri did survive.


Her life depends on her self esteem/happy memories.

You are given 5 (or so) opportunities to either build up her self esteem or be preachy/dismissive. Get better than half of them "right" & she survives. The snowball fight is a rather nice change from bisecting bandits.

Though if we were on the parenting site, I'm not sure I would encourage being a horse thief with one's ward.

So, go forth & try to be a supportive foster father.

Oh, and Gerault's dream sequence during the tutorial has no effect on on Ciri's memories. Feel free to be a jerk in your own dreams.
