Defend Kaer Morhen – Choice outcome?

In Kaer Morhen

at the meeting right before the fight against the Wild Hunt

I have to choose if I want potions or traps be made in the laboratory and if the wall or the forge should be repaired.

My questions here:

  1. What will I get if take the potions?
  2. What will I get if take the traps?
  3. What will happen / will I get if I repair the wall?
  4. What will happen / will I get if I repair the forge?


After I got the first answer I’ve to add that I need a more specific answer e.g. what sword/recipe would I get and do I have to place the traps by myself, are those usable items like bombs?


If you choose potions you get Superior Swallow, and depending on finishing the side quest “Following the thread” a Fortified Raffard’s Decoction.

The traps will kill some enemies in the battle.

Repairing the wall will mean one less wave of enemies attacking.

The forge will result in getting a silver sword.

The general theme is deciding between getting an item or recipe, and directly affecting the battle in some way. Getting the sword and potions might not be a good idea if you’re already well equipped.

This information is based on various online guides, they are mostly in agreement but there is also some contradictory information.
