This page covers the location of every Gwent card in The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine, effectively completing the Side Quest [Gwent: Never Fear, Skellige’s Here], completing the Skellige deck and preparing you for the Side Quest [Gwent: To Everything - Turn, Turn, Tournament!].
Everybody loves Gwent, and while Hearts of Stone added a few new Gwent cards to the mix, Blood and Wine ups the ante even further by adding a new deck entirely - the Skellige deck! In addition to basic (read: starter) Skellige deck you can get 19 additional cards, and you can, of course, use various neutral cards like Commander’s Horn, Decoy, Scorch, some Hero cards (Ciri, Geralt, Mysterious Elf, Triss, Yennefer) and Weather cards as you see fit.
There are two quests related to Gwent in Blood and Wine; [Gwent: Never Fear, Skellige’s Here] and [Gwent: To Everything - Turn, Turn, Tournament!]. The former’s entire task is centered around collecting the Skellige deck, effectively acting more of a tracking mechanism than a proper quest, while the latter challenges you to put the newly acquired Skellige deck to the test by using it to win a tournament, and since one of the preconditions for entering the tournament is to acquire a majority of the Skellige cards, there’s a lot of synergy between these two quests.
These quests can be started by winning any Skellige card from any player in Toussaint, with the most likely candidate being the Innkeeper at the Cockatrice Inn, a location you’ll visit early during the Main Quest The Beast of Toussaint. Alternatively you can search Notice Boards for a post announcing the tournament. Anything that starts one quest should start both, and [Gwent: Never Fear, Skellige’s Here] will allow you to track the locations of these cards.
Where to Find the Basic Skellige Deck
The best way to start your Skellige Deck is to find the basic deck that contains fully half of the Skellige cards you can obtain. When you start the Gwent-related quests (see above) you’ll be tasked with meeting one Count Monnier, who is pushing the new Skellige deck and has set up the tournament which he wants to showcase said deck. Seek him out along the western end of Beauclair, he’ll be at an inn southwest of “The Gran Palace” signpost. When you find him, talk to him and after some chatter he’ll hand you the basic Skellige deck, which includes the following cards:
|Basic Skellige Deck|
|Clan an Craite Warrior|
|Clan Brokvar Archer|
|Clan Drummond Shield Maiden|
|Clan Heymaey Skald|
|Clan Tordarroch Armorsmith|
|Crach an Craite|
