Ciri: Confidence or Doubt #3 - Meeting the Lodge
You’ve seen to everybody’s needs, and perhaps helped reshape the balance of power in the north, so you should be ready to proceed, right? Head to Dandelion’s tavern and make your way to the second level, where you’ll find Ciri fretting over an imminent meeting with Phillipa and Margarita. Here is another chance to influence Ciri’s confidence, and hence, the end of the game.
Pick the dialogue option "Going with you." to accompany Ciri to the meeting. The conversation that occurs therein - including your responses - don’t matter. Simply being there undermines Ciri’s authority, and hence sows doubt. Alternatively, if you pick "You’ll do fine on your own." Ciri’s confidence will grow.
In any event, if you romanced both Triss (you got a romance scene after "Now or Never" ) and Yennefer (you got a romance scene after "The Last Wish" ) both will come to you after Ciri’s meeting with Phillipa and promise you unearthly delights. The holy grail of sorceress lovin’. The greatest thing that’s probably ever happened to Geralt (and certainly better than anything that’s happened to most of us)… a magical ménage à trois. This starts the quest "It Takes Three to Tango" . Might as well get this over with if you have it, otherwise skip to the heading "Talking to Avallac’h".

It Takes Three to Tango
Head to the Kingfisher and make your way to the second level, then knock on the door to begin the festivities. Then… well… yeah. How did you think this would end? Oh well, chin up. The only thing that they hurt was your pride, and you kind of had it coming. Two-timing jerk. After that, fighting the Wild Hunt doesn’t seem so bad.
Talking to Avallach
Return to Dandelion’s tavern (if necessary) and head to the top floor and enter Avallac’h’s suite, where you’ll find him poring over some risque drawing. Talk to Avallac’h and - after enduring some teasing - he’ll tell you about some dissent in the ranks of the Wild Hunt… and some means by which you might exploit it. Get all the details you can, then head off with Avallac’h, if you’re ready. This begins the quest "Through Time and Space" .
