So I’ve already completed the game once on Roche’s path, and now I want to see Iorveth’s side.

If you don’t give Iorveth his sword, but then choose to rescue him from the barge and go on his path anyway, does it affect anything post-Chapter 1? I’m already aware of what happens with Loredo and Flotsam based on whether or not you give him his sword, as well as whether or not you side with him or Roche.

I read somewhere though that if you give him his sword, then for the rest of the game he treats Geralt as a friend, whereas if you don’t then he acts much colder and unfriendly. Is this true?

I want to see what Iorveth is like when he’s friends with Geralt, but if there’s virtually no difference then I’d rather not be responsible for the rioting in Flotsam.

Yeah, that's true. It's not like the change is huge or anything, but it's there. I prefer giving Iorveth the sword and then siding with Roche, though.

Spoiler alert: Roche gets PISSED.

... As usual. Good times.

Giving Iorveth his sword is the hidden, neutral witcher move. Even if you're going to go down Roche's path, it would be a neutral move to arm a man facing a battle; to keep his weapon from him means you're favoring his enemy, hence taking the side of the enemy.

Edit: on topic- yes, Iorveth warms up to you if you give his sword back, and further still if you choose his path.
