What do you get when you mix "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" with the equally enthralling "Game of Thrones" series? A fun Easter egg hunt, of course.
And believe it or not, there is the Tyrion Lannister Easter egg to be found when you traverse the massive world of The Witcher 3.
Put into the game by the developers as homage to the adorable dwarf character, this Easter egg is more than what meets the eye as there are several references to the series. But where will you find Tyrion in The Witcher 3? Let's take a close look.
WARNING: Contains Game of Thrones spoilers if you haven't watched the first season.
The Witcher 3 – Tyrion Easter Egg Location
- If you are looking for Tyrion in The Witcher 3, you will first need to reach the Skellige Isles. From there, you will need to sail to Prison Island. If you can't find Prison Island, look at a top down view of the world map and it will be located north of Undvik, to the left of Ard Skellig.
- When you are at the Prison Island, you will need to travel along the main road until you come across Kaer Almhult – a once ruined fortress now turned into a prison.
- Before reaching the island, make sure Geralt is equipped with his weapons and spells as you will face resistance from the pirates there, and you will have to kill them before you can reach the Easter egg.
- We recommend that you reach the area with at least a level higher than level 12, since the enemies there are already level 12 and you need to be ranked higher to take them down.
- Once you have cleared your path, move to the fortress courtyard and enter the dungeon. There will be more pirates here. While getting rid of them, note that one of them will be carrying a key that will give you access to the prison area.
- From there, move into the prison and unlock the cell in the middle. When inside the prison, you will see a dead dwarf who bears a remarkable resemblance to Tyrion.
- The dwarf will even have the scar that Tyrion received during the Battle of the Blackwater – when Stannis Baratheon tried (unsuccessfully) to capture King's Landing.
- Walk up to the corpse. When you examine it, Geralt will say, "Sky cells. Nice idea for a prison without bars. Shame he didn't know how to fly."
- If you aren't aware, the "sky cells" term has been used in reference to the sixth episode of season one, A Golden Crown.
- When at The Eyrie, Lady Lysa Arryn throws Tyrion into a sky cell. The sky cell is basically a prison with no bars, accompanied by a steep drop to a certain death. Tyrion nearly rolled off the edge while in his sleep.
