The Witcher 3 is one of the most popular games of this generation. It’s the perfect mix of combat, crafting, exploration, decision-based storytelling, 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 Superior 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’re famously called, the Witchers are hired by people – from townsfolk to kings – to slay different kinds of monsters across the game’s fictional Slavic-based setting.

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 enemies he must face. Additionally, Geralt must use a different sword when dealing with hostile humans since his silver sword is solely for fighting monsters.

Many armor pieces and weapons are easily found and purchased in the Witcher world, and they can drop as loot from enemies, be sold by merchants, and even be obtained as quest rewards. But among the plethora of weapons and armor readily available at players’ disposal, there lies a set of unique pieces hidden across the land, only attainable when certain conditions are met. One of these unique items is the Superior Griffin Witcher Gear, specializing in increasing sign intensity, resistance to piercing, bludgeoning, and slashing damage, as well as increasing resistance from monster damage.

There are weapon and armor pieces representing the six 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 gear items and what you need to craft them.

Superior Griffin School Diagrams

While basic gear diagrams are relatively easy to craft and locate, the same can’t be said for the enhanced, superior, and mastercrafted versions. These diagrams require more effort in obtaining, but the materials used to craft the items are easy to find.

The Griffin Witcher Gear is one of the earliest Witcher Gear sets you can encounter in the game. Like any other equipment in the game, wearing Superior Griffin Witcher Gear as a set increases bonuses with each upgrade. The School of Griffin’s set probably has some of the most balanced stats for Witcher Gear, and when crafted early, it will help Geralt get through most of the early stages of the game.

To obtain the diagram for this gear set, you may have to spend hours trying to get them. However, the materials you will need can be acquired through exploration, loot, and merchants. Additionally, players must also find a suitable blacksmith and armorer to craft these precious items.

Superior Griffin Steel Sword Diagram

To obtain the Superior Griffin Steel Sword Diagram, you need to go down the mountain from Yngvar’s Fang until you arrive at a small town. You will find a small road that leads to a tall protruding rock from the ground. Upon closer inspection, you will find that the rock has a Witcher Symbol. Using your Witcher Senses you will find a chest containing the Superior Griffin Steel Sword diagram behind the rock. This superior version of the sword has the following stats:

  • 188 – 230 Damage
  • +15% Sign Intensity
  • +25% Critical Damage
  • +5% Bonus XP from humans / nonhumans

The necessary materials required to craft the Superior Griffin Steel Sword are:

  • Enhanced Griffin Steel Sword
  • 1 Leather Scrap
  • 3 Dark Steel Ingot
  • 1 Monster Blood
  • 1 Monster Feather

Superior Griffin Silver Sword Diagram

To find the Superior Griffin Silver Sword diagram, you need to travel south from the mainland of Skellige until you reach the Elverum Lighthouse located near the tip of the island. Walk to the northern part of the coast, and you will find an entrance to a cave. Enter the cave, and search for loot. At the end of the cave is a large room where you will find a chest hidden in a nook at the back containing the Superior Griffin Silver Sword diagram. The superior version of the sword has the following stats:

  • 297 – 363 Damage
  • +15% Sign Intensity
  • +25% Critical Damage
  • +10% Dismemberment
  • +20% XP from Monsters

The necessary materials required to craft the Superior Griffin Silver Sword are:

  • Enhanced Griffin Silver Sword
  • 2 Leather Scraps
  • 1 Dimertrium Ingot
  • 1 Monster Blood
  • 1 Powdered Monster Tissue

Superior Griffin Armor Diagram

Unlike the Enhanced Griffin Witcher armor set, the superior diagrams for the School of Griffin armor set are found in one place. But do not expect to have an easier time obtaining this set of diagrams.

To find the said diagrams, travel north from Giants Toes, where you will pass through many stone passageways. There, expect to fight a lot of humans. These bandits have a camp up ahead, so once you’ve dealt with all of them, loot all the chests in the camp until you find the chest containing all four of the Superior Griffin Armor Gear diagrams.
