Hints to get all Gwent cards:

  • You can’t loose cards

Don’t worry, though opponents in Gwent set their cards as a stake you will never lose a card when loosing a game of Gwent. Just challenge the opponent another time if you didn’t get his unique card. You also can’t sell Gwent cards, therefor you won’t lose them this way either. If in the game one of the characters with a unique card die before you’ve challenged them for a round of Gwent the character should leave the card with body and you can loot it from him.

  • Buy every card you see

Buy every card you see at a merchant immediately when you see it and you have the money for them. Nothing is more annoying than having to go back again at each merchant and see which one you’ve missed.

You better start every Gwent quest as soon as possible. Some of you opponents may die in the story (they should leave their unqiue card in their loot) and to the start the quest then can be tricky. Make sure you check our list of all Gwent quests and start them immediately when you have your first chance to talk to a new character and challenge him for Gwent. This will also help you for harder Gwent quests at a later stage of the game, since you’ll have already a collection of good cards in your deck.
