It’s very tricky to discover diagrams by simply exploring an area. They are usually well hidden in some chests, deep inside caves, or in a hard to reach areas.

But, there are merchants scattered around the Witcher 3 world who sell gear maps. When you buy a map, this item will start the quest with marked locations for armor and weapons. For the first (basic) gear each piece is marked on the map, while for enhanced, superior and mastercrafted gear you will find 3 locations on the map. All armor diagrams are hidden at one location, and swords can be found at the remaining two locations.
