Witch Hunt is a quest available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Rumors that the 'hexer' of the Witchwood is in league with the dragon are sure to incite violence unless action is taken."

The quest is obtained immediately after Come to Court by eavesdropping on the conversation between Brice, Lena, and Cale in Fountain Square (near the inn in Gran Soren) about a witch in the woods, believed to be the cause of the return of The Dragon.  

A search party has been dispatched into the Witchwood to find Selene.

Go to the Witchwood to ensure her safety.

The quest Lost and Found must have been completed prior for this quest to become available.


Provided Lost and Found was completed earlier, this quest becomes available when the Arisen returns from the Duke's Demesne after completing Come to Court.
