This guide will teach you how to find the Grandmaster Wolven Gear in The Witcher 3, by way of the quest Scavenger Hunt: Grandmaster Wolven Gear.

Grandmaster Wolven Gear

To obtain the Scavenger Hunt: Grandmaster Wolven Gear quest you’ll need to speak with the Grandmaster Smith, who can be found just south of Gran Place in Toussaint.This location can only be visited in the Blood and Wine DLC, so you won't be able to acquire this armor until much later int he story. Once you speak with the Grandmaster you will obtain the Master, Master, Master side quest, which tasks you with completing any of the Grandmaster Gear sets.

You can ask about the various witcher gear sets to start off the Scavenger Hunts for each set.

Before you continue, let's talk about what you're going to need to do to acquire this full gear set. We've outlined all the objectives you'll need to know about below:

  • Acquire the Master, Master, Master side quest.
  • Choose to learn more about the Wolf witcher that the Grandmaster Smith knows about.
  • Locate Isabelle Duchamp's journal.
  • Find the entrance to the chamber under the Termes Palace Ruins.
  • Acquire the Purple Ruby and George Herbert's Letter.
  • Find the Grandmaster Wolven witcher gear diagrams.

Find Isabelle Duchamp's Journal and the chambers beneath the ruins

Your first job is to head to the camp where a group of archeologists were once camped. This place is Termes Palace Ruins, which can be found pretty easily be following the marker on your map. Once you arrive at the location you need to search for the diggers’ campsite, and locate Isabelle Duchamp’s journal. Read the entry to update your quest to find the entrance to the chambers under the ruins.

Now head around the ruins and look for a doorway with a purple barrier blocking the way.

You can enter the portal once you have the Purple Ruby.

Find the Purple Ruby

You’ll need the Purple Ruby that Isabelle Duchamp was talking about in her letter. Luckily you can find it, as well as George Herbert’s Letter (which gives more information about the quest area), just to the right of the purple barrier, on a corpse, outside.

Once you have the Purple Ruby, activate the jewel holder on the wall to the right of the barrier. This will lower the magic barrier, and allow you access to the chamber ruins beneath the palace. Make sure you have your Yrden sign ready, as there are Barghasts, and Wraiths to deal with inside.

You'll find plenty of enemies in the ruins, so be prepared.

Find the Grandmaster Wolven witcher gear diagrams

Once you’ve made it inside, you need to look for two distinctive things. The first thing is a Witcher’s Satchel, which can be found in the room with the tomb enscription. Locate the room, it’s the one with several torches, and the tomb jutting from the lower level, and then use your Witcher Sense to locate the Witcher Satchel on the ground.

The first sachel contains Diagram: Grandmaster Wolven Armor, Diagram: Grandmaster Wolven Trousers, and Diagram: Grandmaster Wolven Boots.

With half the needed parts in your inventory, it’s time to continue searching for the rest of the Grandmaster Wolven gear. Continue through the ruins, being wary of the Wraiths and Barghasts, as well as the Giant Centipede which protects a cavernous area that you’ll need to travel through.

Your next goal is to reach an area with a cave-in. This area is the resting place of the Witcher who tried to help the archeologists. Sadly his life was cut short trying to stop the creatures from killing them.

The final pieces of the Grandmaster Wolven gear set can be found on the Witcher’s corpse. Loot it to obtain the Diagram: Grandmaster Wolven Steel Sword, Diagram: Grandmaster Wolven Silver Sword, and the Diagram: Grandmaster Wolven Gauntlets. This will complete the Grandmaster Wolven set, which will allow you to craft it at the Grandmaster Smith.
