Viper Armor is a new Witcher gear set from the Hearts of Stone expansion. It’s a level 39 medium set which has a great armor rating and provides near immunity to poison. To obtain it, you’ll have to find the diagrams for it, a bunch of materials and a capable artisan. In this guide, we’re going to show you where to find Viper Armor diagrams, and what you’ll need to craft the gear.
Note: The glasses aren’t part of the set. They can be bought on an auction during the Open Sesame quest.
Viper Armor, Gauntlets, Trousers, BootsThe four armor pieces can be obtained during the Open Sesame mission. Talk to Countess Mignole at the auction house (the old woman with her hair in a bun), until a trading option presents itself. She sells the diagrams you’re looking for. Beware: the conversation with the Countess is entirely optional, and you can’t go back in after you’ve left.
Viper Venomous Steel SwordDuring the Open Sesame quest, you’ll enter the vault at the auction house. You’ll find the diagram for the steel sword in there, in a chest next to the altar-like structure.
Viper Venomous Silver SwordThe silver sword itself (not the diagram) can be found during the Whatsoever a Man Soweth quest, but only if you choose to help Olgierd von Everec. Go over the wooden bridge, through the large stone gate, then keep to the left. You’ll be ambushed by a giant specter. When you defeat it, climb the broken stairs and you’ll see the sword lodged in a stone.
Viper set statsThe Viper armor set is of medium weight, requires level 39 to use (69 in NG+) and a bunch of glyph slots. It has the highest armor rating of all the Witcher gear sets, and provides immunity to poison when worn.
Materials needed to craft Viper setMost of these materials can be found lying around. Others can be obtained through dismantling stuff you don’t use. You’ll need to find a journeyman armorer to do the job.
