After completing The Assault a third option will appear in your dialogue with Roche “What ultimately happened to the dragon?” Geralt will explain that as they moved closer to the interior of the castle a dragon attacked.

  1. Starting Location
  2. The Gate
  3. End Location

Shortly after beginning this part a dragon attacks. This begins the quest Trial by Fire. Quickly follow Roche and Triss to the undercover area on the left. As you run you’ll be attacked by soldiers in groups of two. Quickly dispatch them, wait for the fire to subside and continue forwards to the next section.

Take out the soldiers by the gate and wait for Triss to destroy it. Run across the bridge before it collapses and watch as the dragon flies away.
