Vendor Locations that sell Maps for Witcher Gear (Bear, Cat, Griffin, Wolf)

As you’ve probably heard by now, the crafted Witcher school gear (Bear, Cat, Griffin, and Wolf) is the best armor in the game once you upgrade them to the highest level (mastercraft for the standalone game, and grandmaster for the Blood and Wine expansion).

To find the diagrams for these sets, you can either stumble on them randomly (which is difficult), or buy maps from specific merchants that will reveal the location of the diagrams for each gear set (or its upgraded version).

Below you can find the locations of these merchants, to make it easy for you to obtain your own Ursine (Bear), Feline (Cat), Wolf, or Griffin sets.

*Note*: Keep in mind that in order to craft each upgrade level, you need the previous armor set, so you’ll have to craft all the way up from normal to mastercraft or grandmaster.
