pegapuros: Here is my problem, which doesn't involve the fight at all. It's about the QTE:
To start with, there is no option of pressing RMB before climbing to the sweeping tentacle. Then, I try to fill in the meter by clicking LMB but I never get to complete this: the meter never fills in time. I have tried to complete the QTE in Easy difficulty and with the Hard QTEs disabled, but still I cannot complete this QTE in time.

Can you help me? I am really enjoying this game (this is the best RPG I have played since the first The Witcher), but this QTE is really getting on my nerves.

Thanks for your help
You are right, there is no RMB or SPACE pushing if you have disabled the harder QTE's. However, the clicking part is still there. Some people have put their mouse sensitivity to maximum to help with QTE's, but I fail to see how that would help in the clicking part. Also maybe turning your mouse sideways during that part and clicking the LMB with two fingers instead of one would help?

Edit: Also you can change your keybindings in the Witcher 2 launcher -> options -> input settings. Maybe switching the fast attack to something else for that fight only. I just tried the fight by switching dodge to LMB and fast attack to SPACE, and the QTE changed in Kayran fight accordingly. Since space is the biggest button on your keyboard there should be no problems pressing that with multiple fingers. Altho with this you have to remember that dodge is now in LMB and use that instead of space, which itself can complicate matters even more.

Been riding the tentacle for hours and have yet been able to get my mouse click right to go to the end of the fight! It is getting old, just don't know what my issue is!

I can't help but wonder what double click sensitivity people that have issues with the QTE's are using inside windows. If it's a larger value it may be detecting the QTE clicks as doubleclicks and therefore only counts half the clicks towards the QTE.
I don't even remember a rock, I just remember something where the bridge fell on it and i made a beeline to the boss

Actually that's exactly what I ended up doing - cheers for adding it to the thread though. Skips the annoying QTEs (Lord I hate those).

It's what I had to do for the Letho fight; his quen was just too strong for me! I turned the difficulty back up to normal, and never looked back.

I have adjusted up and down the scale and the same effect. I have even switched to a game pad...next is to change out my mouse!

This is not a option when you are playing on EASY!

And how do you skip the annoying QTE in the fight against the Kayran (in fact is the only problem I have completing the fight, in Hard difficulty the fight is quite difficult but possible to complete, the problem is the damn QTE)

Although I'll try first to pass the QTE changing the LMB for the full bar, let's see if that works. Thanks for your help!

Vague-rant: I guess you could send someone your save if you're really desperate, get them to complete that bit, then send the save back. You'll miss about a minute of dialogue, but nothing essential.

If you can get the save to me, then I could probably do it. You should probably do it yourself though, you'll get that nice feeling of accomplishment and the above advice is pretty useful.
hey friend new on gog cant clear out of that quick time event even after the bar is filled nothing happens for me putting my savegame. hope you do it.

actually i tried lowering resolution a solution that worked for most but not for me may be because my pc is really low end. thanx buddy.
could just switch the response from the mouse clicks in windows so there isn't a delay. Something like windows stuck key being enabled could hinder the game responding to mouseclicks thinking the button is stuck.

I had alot of issues with the fight at first. Timing was key. Knowing the the kayran trap was only worth one tentacle was another. The QTE prompts where often missed because of background blending. Figured out the buttons then it was trying to figure out why I'd die in stage 3. So I just hit quen as soon as I hit the ground and climb to the far side of the rock and get smacked bad then I'd just roll or run to the top...trying to hit quen again would get me killed. Helps if you have 2 in dodge, but not necessary.

hanns.g: As often as you may read people say, "oh, I eventually got. It's not that bad," there really are some for whom QTEs just do not work. I really hope a patch makes them skippable at some point. (Trolls, shut up, in advance. There is a small group of people who will never get to enjoy this great game if they can't skip the QTEs.)

Pegapuros, if you think you are licked, upload a save. Maybe somebody will have mercy and beat the Kayran for you.
I got the game on steam, how do I upload the game and have someone beat the scene for me?
Hi ybinstock,

I don't remember how Steam directories are arranged, but you can search for your saved games in the gamesaves folder, and upload both the save file and image file to a place like dropbox. If you go into the steam folder in your PC, look for a folder called commonapps, the Witcher 2 folder should be in there.

Alternatively, I don't mind sharing my saved file.
