Evil's Soft First Touches
Once you begin with the DLC Hearts of Stone you need to head to the Seven Cats In the south-east of Novigrad and read the noticeboard. After the Cutscene is over, follow the marker you'll catch a glimpse of a bunch of jokers in Garin Estate. Then Head upstairs to speak with the chief to find out more about the quest. As you'll leave the building, a Woman will approach you, listen to her story to unlock the Rose on a Red Field(second Quest).
Now move to Oxenfurt and then use the ladder to climb down in the sewers. In the Narrow passageway activate your Witcher Sense to examine the two sets of footprints. In the first chamber, take down the Drowner and near the grating in the south-east corner of the room use the Witcher Sense again to examine the corpse. In the Next Chamber, a cutscene will play(reintroducing a character from Geralt's past).
You need to knock out the right-hand corner of the wall with the help of Aard and then head for the next marker and watch the cutscene. Again jump down the hole to fight few more Drowners and then examine the body. Again fight off a small pocket of Drowners in the deeper sewers and examine the patches of slime and corpses with the Witcher sense. Finally follow the last marker of the quest and get ready to fight the Boss after the cutscene.
