How to get Grandmaster Griffin Gear

In this quick guide, we’ll explain how to get the Grandmaster Griffin gear diagrams in Witcher 3. The signs-focused Griffin set provides two bonuses when you upgrade it to Grandmaster:

  • (3/6) After casting a Sign in standard mode, the next standard Sign cast within 3 seconds won’t cost stamina
  • (6/6) Increased Yrden Sign trap radius by 40%; standing inside the trap increases stamina regeneration by 5 per second and Sign intensity by 100%, and reduces damage taken by 20%

To upgrade your Griffin set, you’ll need the mastercrafted set and the six grandmaster armor and weapon diagrams.

To find the diagrams, you can either travel to Beauclair and speak with the Grandmaster Armorer Lazare Lafargue to start the Scavenger Hunt: Grandmaster Griffin gear quest or go straight to the diagram locations we’ve added below.

Travel to Fort Ussar in the far east, the easternmost location in Toussaint.

The Fort is guarded by two basilisks but you don’t have actually have to fight them; just head into the main ruins and look for the chest. Read the captain’s report to unlock the next diagram location.

The next location is located to the northwest, where you’ll find a Hanse Base: a camp controlled by a gang of bandits. After fighting a small group of bandits, dispel the illusion blocking the entrance into the room below.

Use the highlighted wall switch to enter a secret room and loot Moreau’s journal; reading it will give you quest update to find the teleportation crystal. You can find it on a table in the first room.

Here, you’ll find the Grandmaster Griffin armor, trousers, and silver sword diagrams after fighting a Golem. You can now travel back to the grandmaster smith to craft the set; he also sells many of the required materials.
