What the Leshen’s true motive was confounded Geralt. That the young children, women and brazen men of the village feared and hated it seemed apparent, but the elders and hardiest hunters revered, even so far as worshipped the creature. Surely, thought Geralt, if the Leshen wished to expand its territory at the expense of all humans in the village, it would have done so. Long ago. No, this Leshen was different than the others he had encountered in the wilds. Harald had spoke of a pact made long ago, of offerings to please the spirit. A trial for the right to exist in its domain. The Leshen had been here first. Was this Leshen the oldest of its kind? Perhaps the oldest being to inhabit this world? Geralt observed a fir, twenty meters tall, at the least. Surely the Leshen was older than this tree. Three crows, two black and one pale as snow perched in its branches. The pale one seemed to meet Geralt’s eye and emitted a call, totally unlike that of a crow. Was it a warning? A challenge? A greeting? Geralt understood. This forest wasn’t the Leshen’s domain or territory, the forest was its garden. The trees it’s children. This Leshen would not die today, nor in a hundred hundred of years. Geralt closed his eyes and lowered his head, in respect and in acceptance of the Leshen’s will. Before he could open them, the sound of baying wolves split the forest’s eerie silence. The Leshen’s terms accepted, the trial had begun. Geralt drew steel rather than silver, and began the dance.
In Witcher 3, he's a strong foe, but nothing that is too overtly problematic if you've been working upward.In MHWorld, Behemoth looks under his bed for Ancient Leshen every night.
Finally found you, you little jewel.
As a Witcher 3 fan I love this song. As a Monster Hunter Player, I hate this song.
Witcher 3 version: Hard boss, nothing to overcomplicated if you know what you're doing. Pretty fun fight with good music to boot.MHWorld version: Extreme Behemoth, Arch Tempered Kulve Taroth, and Arch Tempered Xeno'jiiva check their closets, beds, and dressers for one of these.
I have nightmares of Jagras pushing me into death listening this theme lol
I came here after getting pwned over and over again in Monster hunter world.
Hah, the two leshens that exist in the main game both disliked this. lel
To kill or not to kill a leshen...
This track reminds me of FarCry 3
Came here from Monster Hunter World xD!!!!!
You know, even if you fight this Ancient Leshen for half and hour or more, it's still so worth it because of THIS soundtrack, so enchanting and awesome!!!!
haha .. same .. I was searching for this theme for days now .. .I haven't played that game but I just love its tracks.. every single one is a piece of brilliance
I'm not sure why, but this music makes me think about "A Question of Price". Specifically when Pavetta starts to destroy the castle and Ermion (yes, Mousesack is Ermion) and Geralt try to stop her. I think it may be because I get a sort of "raw power, the force of nature" feeling from this song, which I associate with the power that is contained in the Elder Blood.
Oh my, I LOVED when this music started when fighting in Skellige. Felt so epic!
The frkn Leshen, always scaring the shit out of me when I randomly encountered it in the woods.
Would be great to hear Draig-bon-Dhu singing the "Ballad of the Witcher Gerd" once :-D
Zero dislikes, nobody can hate on this epic music
Best vanilla theme with a pic of best monster.
Jason Brody is sneaking around those jungles, chaining stabs in the back on the bandits.
One of the best ost I've ever heard. Please I wish this game would've had an endless story.
The leshen looks like a wendigo
extending a random fight only for this
that one leshen dislike tho...
All i can say is SKELIGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
If you listen to the chanting it's the same from Far Cry 3's level up theme.
“How do you like that silver...”
Ah, the first time I fought a Leshen... soooo epic.
0:18 - 0:35 - WHY DOESN'T IT LAST LONGER!
Reminds me of The Witcher 2.
My favorite monster in the witcher 3
Does anyone know the theme that plays when you investigate the forest in the "In The Heart of The Woods" quest?!?!? I just can't find it!
when can we hear this music in game?
"We'll fix you up, don't you fret."
Reminded me of the For Honor vikings theme.
Being a custodian at a school has never felt so satisfying.
quando você encontra um nekker e fica apenas desviando dos ataques dele por horas só para ouvir a música tema da batalha.
goosebumps. damn i love this battle theme
The intro really remind me of "Cutthroat Terror on the High sea". Well it's fitting though cause that is pirate game and Skellige is a land of raider, Viking and Pirate.
Com'on CAPCOM Booster GO!!!This is Epic for fights.
Where can I find this song? Preferably on iTunes.
i am MHW player, well, this song is epic ! but... i cant find it on itunes or any T.W3 OST album. Can Someone give a link to download ?
Somebody could traduct what the guy in the back says please ?
this theme could actually be very good for a dragon fight
I remember wandering in the forest in Velen and suddenly i saw a leshen in front of me it was so fuckin scary and my level was low so i had to run i tried to go back to fight him when my level became higher but i didn’t find him:(
The 14 dislikes are the leshens not liking this masterpiece
i want to download this
Every time I go to the forest...
Always this song start play, I remember the Ancient Lich.
Where can I find the normal version of this?
Why isn’t this on the soundtrack???!?!!???!??!!???!!??!?? Hulk smashhhh
Anyone else shit their pants when they saw their first leshen?... no? Just me ok...
Every fucking times u see weather changed, there is a leshen lurking nearby.Except one time, one time only with Kaer Morhen's Chort.
"what now you piece of filth"
