We’ve heard a few requests asking where to find Emerald Dust in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and exactly where these locations are while playing the White Orchard map. One of the best interactive maps detailing White Orchard secrets, main characters, and locations can be found on Game Pressure.
You can also see a screenshot of that map below, but the interactive version with information about each icon and location can be seen directly on this Game Pressure page titled “White Orchard – Atlas”. Not only will you get interesting background information on areas like the White Orchard village and Cemetery, Bandit and Nilfgaardian camp, hidden treasure, Tomira’s Hut, and other areas, but also key characters.
These characters/foes include the Devil by the Well, a Bear, the Griffon, Water Hags, and more importantly the Wraiths. It’s the Wraith that will give you an opportunity to collect Emerald Dust in The Witcher 3, as seen in the locations below.
How to find Emerald Dust in The Witcher 3 – as many of Product Reviews readers know, Emerald Dust is way too expensive to buy from a Quartermaster and you would be much better collecting it from Wraiths. You may have read a few forum postings about this very topic, so we gave it a try ourselves and found killing the Wraith at the cemetery near the mill easiest. This only took a slow spell and some smart dodges.
There should be around 4 Wraiths in the White Orchard. You should find two level 7 Wraiths at the Cemetery, one in the Crypt and another by the Place of Power. Even if these two don’t drop any Emerald Dust, then you will still have another couple to try. These other Wraiths are found by near Nilfgaard Garrison in a Place of Power and the final one will be killed after doing the quest “Devil By the Well”, as seen in the location on the map.
