The Witcher 3 is one of the most popular games of our generation. It is the perfect mix of combat, crafting, exploration, decision-based story outcomes, role-playing, and open-world gameplay. With hundreds of awards under its belt, CD Projekt Red discovered a shaft of gold and fame through Geralt as he traverses the life of a Witcher.

How to Get Enhanced Griffin Witcher Gear in Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt follows the story of the monster-slayer Geralt of Rivia as he crosses territories and encounters different creatures and deities while searching for his adopted daughter Ciri. As they are famously called, the Witchers are hired by people, from townsfolk to kings, to slay different kinds of monsters across the fictional Slavic-based country.

These monsters have different habitats, behaviors, powers, tendencies, and weaknesses. For this reason, players must equip Geralt with the right kind of weapon and armor depending on the expected enemies to face. In addition to this, Geralt must use a different sword when dealing with hostile humans since his silver sword is solely for fighting monsters.

Many armors and weapons are easily found and purchased in the Witcher world. They can be dropped as loot from enemies, sold by merchants, and even as quest rewards. But among the plethora of weapons and armors easily available at players’ disposal, there lies a set of unique weapon and armor pieces hidden across the land, only attainable when certain conditions are met. One of these unique items is the Basic Feline Witcher Gear, specializing in increasing attacks and inflicting bleeding to enemies.

Even more special are the weapon and armor pieces representing the six different Witcher SchoolsSchool of Viper, School of Wolf (where Geralt hails from), School of Cat, School of Bear, School of Manticore, and School of Griffin. This article will help you find the location of these gears and what you need to craft them.

Enhanced Griffin School Diagrams

The Griffin Witcher Gear is one of the earliest Witcher Gear sets you will encounter in the game. While the basic diagrams are fairly easy to craft and locate, the enhanced, superior, and mastercrafted versions are different. The materials used to craft them are relatively easy to find. Still, the diagrams are the ones that require more effort in obtaining—like any witcher gear in the game, wearing it as a set increases bonuses with each upgrade. The School of Griffin is probably one of the most balanced stats for Witcher Gear, and when crated early, it will help Geralt get through the early stages of the game.

These diagrams are ones you will spend hours finding since the materials required to craft them are accessible to players through exploration, loots, and merchants. In addition to this, players must also find the right blacksmith and armorer to craft these items scattered throughout the Witcher World.

Players must have a considerable amount and variety of materials at this point. Should Geralt find himself lacking materials to craft the gear in the diagram, then spend more time looting, hunting, and exploring until you get all necessary items necessary.
