With the release of Patch 1.21 and the 2nd expansion to the Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, called Blood and Wine, Geralt now has a chance to equip himself with an even higher tier of Witcher gear – the Grandmaster Set. There are 5 available Grandmaster armor sets representing 5 different Witcher schools – Bear, Griffin, Wolf, Cat and Manticore. This guide will help you start the quest for the Grandmaster Griffin (School of the Griffin) armor set, obtain all the diagrams and craft the armor parts. It is a Medium Armor Witcher set for lvl 40 or higher (at the time of writing the guide, patch 1.22) and consists of 6 pieces.

The opener quest is one for all the armor sets and is given by an NPC located in the middle of The Duchy of Toussaint. As soon as Geralt enters the store of this armorer called Lafarque, he offers him a deal – Lafarque will provide the locations of the diagrams and the witcher has to find and bring them all to the grandmaster armourer.
Locations of the Diagrams
All 6 of the Grandmaster Griffin Witcher Armor Set are located in 2 separate locations. The Ruins of Fort Ussar, located on top of a hill in eastern Toussaint, has a chest that will give you the diagrams to the Grandmaster Griffin steel sword, Grandmaster Griddin boots and Grandmaster Griffin gauntlets. The other 3 diagrams are inside the ruined castle on Mont Crane – Grandmaster Griffin silver sword, Grandmsater Griffin armor and Grandmaster Griffin trousers. All 3 are inside the caves and are near each other.For visual reference, check the video linked above and the pictures shared below.
Requirements to craft
Like all the other Grandmaster Witcher sets, the diagrams and the crafting components are not cheap and you should either stock on crafting materials or prepare at least 30k+ crowns. Here are the requirements as well as the stat bonuses attached to each item. You can also check the linked video for crafting and appearance.
For better visual appearance, check the video guide. Below I have shared 3 screenshots showing off the Grandmaster Wolven set.
