Gwent: The Witcher Card Game features the best battle pass system I’ve ever seen so far! Called “Journeys”, each season focuses on a main Witcher character, providing a ton of cosmetics, stories, artworks and unlockables in the Reward Book (another amazing system I haven’t seen in a CCG!).
As with any battle pass though, there’s always the question of “what do I need to do to get all the levels, if I started playing on X date?”. If you need a quick answer, just skip to the bottom of this article, otherwise stick with me a couple more minutes, so you get a better understanding of how the whole system works!
There are 100 levels in the Journey, and each one requires 24 Crown Pieces in order to level up, therefore you need a total of 2,400 Crown Pieces in order to fully level the Gwent Battle Pass and get all the rewards.
Every Journey season lasts for 12 weeks, and each week there is a new set of 6 quests you can complete, awarding you with 20 Crown Pieces each, for a total of 1,440 Crown Pieces (equal to 60 Journey levels). That means that after completing all of the Journey Quests, you will still need 960 Crown Pieces for full completion.
Keep in mind that 3 of these weekly quests, fall under the premium category, so you will need to own the Battle Pass in order to be awarded the Crown Pieces for completing them, but you can still progress towards their goals, and unlock all the Crown Pieces when you decide to buy the Battle Pass!
Another important thing to keep in mind, is that you can’t progress multiple weekly quests at the same time, and you will have to complete them in the order they are given. So for example, you need to complete Quest 1 from Week 1, in order to unlock Quest 2 from Week 1. Free & Premium weekly quests have their own tracks, so in essence you can progress 2 Quests at the same time always.
- Winning 1 round in any online mode will award you with 1 Crown Piece, without any daily / weekly limits or caps. You can farm all 100 Journey levels in the 1st week if you want, just by winning rounds.
- Additionally, you receive 14 bonus Crown Pieces every day, to be applied on your won rounds. That means that the first 14 rounds you win each day, will give you a total of 28 Crown Pieces. Another easy way to calculate this bonus, is to think of 1 win = 4 Crown Pieces / 7 wins = 28 Crown Pieces (or 6 daily wins = 1 journey level).
Knowing that clearing all 12 weeks of quests (72 Quests in total) leaves us with 960 Crown Pieces to go, then the minimum amount of matches you will need is 34 days of winning 14 rounds each = 952 Crown Pieces.
In the extreme scenario that you started farming the Journey levels at the last day, then be prepared to win 946 rounds in a single day (28 pieces from the first 14 rounds, then 1 piece for the rest 932)!
I hope that having all this information at hand will help you easily figure out how much work you need to do in order to unlock all 100 levels in your case, but if you still feel unsure, I suggest you take a look at this Gwent Journey calculator, that can help you based on the date you started the current Journey season.
