After reaching level 6 or 7, spend points into the Witcher path to get one of the first Warrior path skills. The Warrior skill allows you to dodge further distances. Level 1 is 100% and level 2 is 200%. Take out Geralt's sword and start to roll when in a wide open area or deserted portion of a city. You will be able to travel faster than normal. If timed precisely you can roll without pausing between rolls. Note: Having your sword out will draw the attention of the guards.

-During the "Prologue - Barricade" mission, where you're required to destroy a gate by using a ballista, drop down the wall to a series of scaffolding then reach the ground. Fight a few soldiers from the rebellion group and make your way to the guarded ballista. Kill the enemies and clear the square, then go further back from the ballista and look to your right, next to a house. You will find a dead man dressed in a white robe and red belt laying face down on top of a broken hay wagon (a reference to Altair Ibnu La Ahad). Look up to see a wooden ledge with a bird atop it, a reference to where an assassin would usually survey the surroundings (synchronize) and perform the leap of faith. Geralt will say "I guess they never learn".
