Longclaw Diagram Location

Head to Hindarsfjall Island in eastern Skellige. In the northwestern part of this island is a fast travel point and an area called Freya’s Garden. There are two control switches in the northeastern part of this area, next to the water canal. These switches raise three nearby water barriers. You have to raise the one closest to the cave entrance. How to raise this specific barrier? Use the switch to your right to re-position the wooden stick from a nearby mechanism far to the right. Then use the switch to your left to raise the barrier. Jump into water and find the hidden cave entrance behind this wooden water barrier. There’s a dead body at the end of the cave with an item called “Padlock key”. Leave the cave and head to the biggest house in the area. Go into this house and enter the room to your right. You’ll find a chest with the Longclaw Diagram inside.

    I found this sword in the same cave as where you can find Superior Ursine armor, gauntlets, trousers and boots.

    Why does the Prima guide book have a longclaw diagram in a chest in Spikeroog?? I am so confused, bc I cannot find said treasure chest.

      Weapon’s diagrams have the predetermined numbers. If you find weapon (not weapon’s diagrams) for example inside the chests, their numbers vary based on your current experience level.
