How to upgrade Witcher Gear to Grandmaster

In the Blood & Wine expansion, you have the option of upgrading your mastercrafted witcher gear sets to an additional tier – Grandmaster. This gear is not only higher quality and level (40), but also provides you with two unique set bonuses.

The process of obtaining it is the same as previous sets – you will first need to find the diagrams, and then craft the gear at the smith.

How to Get the Grandmaster Diagrams

To find the diagrams, talk to the Grandmaster Smith in southern Beauclair – he will start the Scavenger Hunt quests for finding the Grandmaster upgrade diagrams Wolf, Griffin, Cat, and Bear school gear.

A word of caution, however: grandmaster gear is very expensive, especially if you don’t want to gather all the required materials yourself and would rather buy them from merchants. If you don’t have the cash, one lazy workaround is to install the Witcher debug console and use the addmoney (#) command.

For detailed walkthroughs of each Grandmaster quest you can check out the Bear, Griffin, Cat, and Wolf pages.

I’ve been playing PC games since the late 1990s and have always enjoyed RPGs the most (Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Elder Scrolls, WoW, etc.). I made this website for discussion, guides, and other info for Witcher 3, one of the best RPGs in recent memory. Hopefully, you find something useful or interesting :)
