After the events of The Witcher 3, how many witchers are left?

    Woops, i've misread the question... You're asking about "witchers", not "witches" - I though you are asking on the effects of Radovid's persecution.

  • @Yasskier huh? You didn't kill Radovid? :) Commented Mar 15, 2017 at 6:29

Needless to say, massive spoilers ensue.

  1. Geralt of Rivia
  2. Eskel

Those are fixed and are left alive regardless of your choices during the game.

Some of those may be left depending on your choices in this or previous games:

  1. Lambert, will survive the battle of Kaer Morhen only if Keira Metz is there as well.

  2. Berengar, from the first game. You may choose to kill him in the 3rd chapter of the game; if you spare him, he will come back and fight for you against Azar Javed, where he may be killed.

  3. Letho of Gulet
    If you spared him in Witcher 2, he will make a cameo in Witcher 3 and maybe even come to Caer Morhen.

  4. Gaetan, the witcher from the Cat School from the DLC quest Where the Cat and Wolf Play. You may chose to end his life, or to spare him. In the latter case he will give you directions to his stash, where you will find a letter for other Cat School witchers:

    It's over. Soldiers have taken the school. They killed Axel and Cedric. As for Schrödinger, well, I can't say for sure - might be alive, might be dead. Bounties have been put on your head and mine. Avoid cities and the high roads. Don't attract any attention.
    - Joёl

  5. Jad Karadin, the guy Lambert has a grudge against. You may choose to spare him, or may not.

  6. Arguably, Ciri
    In one ending Geralt gifts her a silver witcher's sword, and though she has not passed the Trial of Herbs, afterwards they hunt together with Geralt (which is also seen in Curse of Crows comic).

This witcher was last seen alive, but his current whereabouts and status are unknown:

  1. Brehen, from the ending of Season of Storms

So far I count 2 at least, 9 at best. Note that this doesn't count any witchers that don't appear on screen and are only mentioned tangentially, like in letters or conversations - we know they exist, but there's simply not much to go on.

    ... Schrödinger might be alive, or might be dead. Or possibly is neither until someone looks. Fun with names :)

  • Brehen could be dead. Season of Storms takes place before Geralt kills the striga in Last Wish. Where we can read that two other witchers had tried before Geralt, one who had died and one who had seen the striga and then left. Brehen could be either of the two.

Note the answer above forgot about Vesemir, the older Witcher who put Geralt and Eskel through the Trials of Grasses as kids. He makes an appearance at the start of the third Witcher game, and throughout it, he can be seen.

Making his final appearance in the battle of Kaer Morhen. (Forgive me if I misspelled it I haven't read/played much Witcher recently)

    SPOILER COMMENT: The question specifies after Witcher 3. I don't think any subplot allows Vesemir to survive the battle of Kaer Morhen.
