Hello there fellow Witchers. It's been quite awhile since we last spoke. I hope you all have been enjoying your adventures as Geralt of Rivia in CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 3.

The long-awaited expansion, "Hearts of Stone", is now available. New side quests and monster contracts await you in this paid DLC. Of course, where would Geralt be without a new romance for us to pursue? That's right, in "Hearts of Stone", we meet Shani.

Here at GameSkinny, we've got you covered on what you need to know to get to that spicy scene.

Be sure to check here for more guides to help you achieve success throughout your journey.

Spoilers ahead

You must be a level 30 in order to even try the DLC and finish the quest "Dead Man's Party." From there you'll gain the quest "A Midnight Clear" at the end of the wedding.

The point of this quest is for Geralt to cheer Shani up.

By reading all the details in the character section for Shani, you will gain much-needed knowledge for ways to make her happy, e.g. rowan berries.

Use Geralt's Witcher senses to seek out the prized rowan berry plants to gift to Shani. You can also pick up a nice bottle of Est Est, Erveluce, or any various mead as an addition. Zero in and examine all three areas; and then bring your gift to Shani.

Head over to the barn, and you'll notice a woman near the entrance. Shani is there. Hand her your gift as you approach her. A dialogue will begin, select "You've got me" to continue dialogue.

Dialogue Choices

From there, here are our recommended dialogue choices to guarantee a steamy encounter:

  • "It was alright."
  • "Unfit - what's that mean?"
  • "That was Vlodomir, not me."
  • "Let her down easy. I prefer you."
  • "Better by a mile."
  • "Kiss sure didn't sate me."

Now one last dialogue opportunity may arise depending on your choice of gift that you gave to Shani.

You can select either:

  • "You probably shouldn't mix." -OR-
  • "You're right, let's empty it."

Now sit back and enjoy as the Ladies' Man gets his freak on.
