In the sidequest 'The cabaret', Dandelion wants to fight you with fake swords so he can seduce a woman (to get money from her father).

During the fight, you can 1-2 shot Dandelion, but after you destroyed him, he seems crossed that you kicked his ass.

I took a few hits from him to sell the lie, and he would do about as much as if I would get punched. I could take maybe 20 hits from him to go down.

Question is: Does the quest go differently if I took the fall to Dandelion, or would I simply Game Over on it?


Yes, you can let Dandelion beat you up. After losing some hit points, a cutscene will play where Geralt will pretend to be defeated and Dandelion gets his glorious victory.

    Clearing out all these comments since this argument has gotten pretty lengthy, and it's pretty clear that @Fennekin isn't going to change his mind. I will say, though, that downvoting an answer because of a single typo which has since been corrected borders on abuse of the downvote feature. Just try to keep that in mind when voting in the future. – Wipqozn Oct 16 '16 at 0:41
