How to get Wolven Witcher Gear

One of the best armor sets in Witcher 3, the Wolven Witcher gear is a medium armor set that provides excellent all-around bonuses. Like the other Witcher School gear sets, it can be crafted by using diagrams you find in the game.

Here’s a detailed walkthrough for obtaining every diagram for every upgrade level (basic, enhanced, superior, mastercrafted, and grandmaster) of the Wolven Witcher gear set.

We’ve included map locations for the Wolven armor, boots, gauntlets, trousers, silver sword, and steel sword diagrams. Start at the beginning if you’re obtaining the whole set, or look for the location of the specific armor or sword diagram you’re after.

Note: if you’re having trouble finding the chest with the diagrams, look for a Wolf Head symbol; this will give you a general area to search.

This symbol can be found at every Witcher gear diagram location; examining it will give you a highlighted area to look for the chest on your map.

Basic Wolven Gear

Wolven Armor Location

Fast Travel to Kaer Morhen, and then go up the road to the old Signal Tower near Kaer Morhen castle. You will find a note inside a chest in the tower; read the note to start the quest for the normal wolf set.

Note: If you’re collecting the entire set right away, be sure to scroll down and find the locations for the Enhanced and Superior diagrams, because they are also located in Kaer Morhen.

Use your witcher senses on the first level of the tower and activate the crystal on the wall with your Aard sign.


You will then also need to pick up the 2nd crystal by going back to the entrance of the tower and going through the hole in the wall. After this, activate the crystal, and jump into the portal. Here you can pick up the wolf armor diagrams.


Wolven Steel Sword Location

The diagram for the wolven steel sword is found inside the Garrison to the west of Kaer Morhen.


Wolven Silver Sword Location

The silver wolven sword diagram is found in the far north of the Kaer Morhen map at the Ruined Watchtower; the easiest way to get there is to take the boat from the southern end of the lake.


Enhanced Wolven Gear

Enhanced Wolven Armor Location

Enhanced Wolven armor is located on a small island south of Fyke Isle in Velen (it’s located underwater). Don’t forget to loot the other stuff on the island.


Enhanced Wolven Boots Location

inside a cave on the eastern end of Velen.


Enhanced Wolven Silver Sword Location

inside a small cave at the back of Crow’s Perch, near the main castle building, the same place where you first meet the Bloody Baron. Go down the ladder to the bottom of the cave near the water to find the chest.


Enhanced Wolven Trousers Location

on a small island in the lake at Kaer Morhen – the chest will be submerged in shallow water.


Enhanced Wolven Gauntlets Location

Far southern Kaer Morhen inside a cave.


Enhanced Wolven Steel Sword Location

Same place as the basic silver sword diagram, at the Ruined Watchtower in northern Kaer Morhen. The diagram will be on a wooden ledge on one of the walls.


Superior Wolven Gear

Superior Wolven Armor & Silver Sword Location


The chest armor diagram is on the southern end of Ard Skellig, on top of the wooden ramparts surrounding a Harpy monster den. The silver sword diagram is inside a small abandoned hut on the side of a hill on the south-western part of Ard Skellig.

The chest armor diagram is on top of the ramparts; you will need to jump up to get here.

Superior Wolven Steel Sword Location

Inside a ruined fort on the bottom level, Hindarsfjall island (eastern Skellige Isles). The chest is in the top-left corner of the room. The room is filled with poison so you need to use your Igni sign to detonate it. Keep in mind that the poison comes back very quickly and that you need to use Igni several times to get to the chest.

Make sure to keep a safe distance when you use Igni or the explosion will damage you.
Make sure to keep a safe distance!

Superior Wolven Gauntlets, Trousers & Boots Location

all of these diagrams are located in Kaer Morhen; Trousers in an old cave used for Witcher Trials to the northwest of the fortress (the chest is behind some breakable rocks); boots to the far east (follow the river to a cave); and gauntlets in an old iron mine, guarded by a level 30 Earth Elemental.


Mastercrafted Wolven Gear

Mastercrafted Wolven Steel Sword & Armor Location

The Wolven steel sword is inside a sunken ship on the south-western end of Velen. It is located under the stairs to the hull of the ship.

The Wolven armor is inside a small chest near the panther statue in far southern Velen.

Mastercrafted Wolven Chest Armor chest location.

Mastercrafted Wolven Silver Sword Location

Inside a locked shack, not far from the Nilfgaardian Camp in southern Velen. You will need to kill a Fiend to loot the keys to get inside.


Mastercrafted Wolven Trousers Location

At the old watchtower on Spikeroog Island (north-west Skellige Isles). It’s on a wall near the travel post, so you will need to climb up to get it.


Mastercrafted Wolven Boots Location

Behind a ruined tower on Undvik island in Skellige (south-west of map).


Mastercrafted Wolven Gauntlets Location

On Ard Skellig in the middle of the island. This area is guarded by a high-level Fiend (Morvudd) but you don’t actually have to kill him. Just walk around the side of the tower and look for the chest on the wall.

If you’re careful, you don’t need to fight Morvudd to get the gauntlets diagram.

Grandmaster Wolven Gear

To upgrade your Wolf witcher gear to grandmaster,  talk to the Grandmaster Smith Lazare Lafargue in southern Beauclair to start the scavenger hunt quest (Blood and Wine expansion required). Here’s a detailed walkthrough to unlocking Witcher Grandmaster wolf armor.
