I hate Bitter Harvest with a passion. They always die. Any tips?

The escort one with the two Skelligers who charge in to ghouls, devourers, and alghouls who will one shot them with their defensive spines. Northern Wind + Axii FTW

Those quests you guys mentions, i didn't really find them hard just extremely annoying.
I guess escort missions are universally hated.

Hardest for me was 'Extreme cosplay' on deathmarch.
Had to lower the difficulty to BBB

Bitter harvest is easy if you move towards the spawn point and fight the monsters there. They then only concentrate on you. Do it when you a couple of levels higher or when you got the right oil and things will go much smoother.

Extreme cosplay is a real PITA. One of the problems is if you come across it but don't start it and travel away it goes away for good. So you are always forced to do it then and there no matter what. So be fully rested with full supplies of potions etc before going near the quest marker. And then you have to kill the fire guys ASAP. Here is one quest where it's much better to change your armor to get a high resistance against weapons (non-witcher gear) as they will beat on you while you try to kill the fire mages.

For the escort are you referring to For Fame and Glory outside of Larvik? If so just sprint into the cave first and the monsters focus just on you. Or is this some other quest?

Must be a PC thing that it disappears if you don't do it straight away.
The quest marker have aƶways stayed there when i've road past it for a quest and returned later.

Maybe but even the Wiki says this about the quest:

"Important: this is one quest where, if you travel too far away after originally coming across it, it'll disappear and you won't be able to do it."

BTW another real good strategy is to use puppet or domination on one of the mages and pop the Chort decoction for this fight. This helps a ton.

Okay.
Maybe if you leave Toussaint and go to Velen it disappears or something.
I haven't had this problem.
Never really felt up to it to do the quest right away. Always saved it for later.

I also can't confirm that it goes away because I always do it right after I get it. While on DM it was a PITA and I died often it was much easier other times as I knew what to do.

I use Axii on bitter harvest, it helps. Just guard the guy, any ghoul coming you Axii then slash, use Middleweight armor with griffin school technique and potion to increase the stamima regeneration and attack power.
Time I was on my way. So long.

I was able to pass it in my 1st game, but in my 2nd I haven't upgraded my sword attack at all. Equal leveled and basic oil. Just takes too long to kill'em. Have tried Axii and Igni to no avail.

I had no luck trying to guard the main guy, 3 ghouls will converge on us and I can only intercept one. I've had more luck meeting them at the edge of the yellow zone. But it's the same, intercept one and two go by. But there is space to backtrack where when guarding in the middle there isn't. At least that's been my experience.

Can you wander outside the yellow zone for long? I always get back in the yellow if my attack takes me out, assuming it will fail if I don't.
