Celebrate Death with Elves in Gwent’s Holiday Event Update

Posted by at 4:26 pm on October 31, 2017

CD Projekt has rolled out a new update for the Witcher card game Gwent that adds 21 new cards to the draw, makes a few balance changes, and kicks off a new seasonal event called Saovine: Holiday of the Dead. Don’t feel too badly if you haven’t heard of that one—it’s an elf thing.

“Elven tradition holds on Saovine’s eve the dead crawl out of their graves and demand food,” CD Projekt said. “The Toussaintais do not believe in such superstitions—yet this year, they were about to see the legends contain a grain of truth…”

The Saovine event will feature three “challenges and puzzles” with two difficulty levels, with a unique avatar, frame, and title, plus additional Ore and Meteorite Powder, for players able to complete them. There’s plenty of time to get the job done—the event runs until November 21.

For three days after the release of the update—so, until November 3—the Harpy and Restore cards have been granted increased milling value, and will produce scraps and powder equal to the amount required to craft a new card of the same value. In other words, it’s a straight-up trade: If you don’t like these cards for some reason, you can grind something else out of them without taking a hit.
