How to get Dark Iron Plate | Witcher 3: Blood and Wine

Dark Iron Plate is a crafting material in The Witcher 3. You’ll need it to craft some of the new armor sets in Blood and Wine, and it can be pretty hard to obtain. If you haven’t got a stockpile of crafting ingredients by this point, you’ll probably face difficulties while trying to get it. In this guide, we’re going to show you where to find Dark Iron Plate in Witcher 3.

Update: With the release of patch 1.22, the developers have added a crafting diagram for Dark Iron Plate to the game.

This method is somewhat expensive, and it requires the Hearts of Stone expansion. If you need more cash, you could try out the Infinite Money Glitch. Once you’ve filled your coffers, travel to Upper Mill in the north-eastern corner of Velen. Talk to the Ofieri merchant there and buy the Ofieri Tunic for 835 crowns.

Go to a craftsman (the one behind the windmill, for example) and dismantle the tunic. You’ll have to pay 100 crowns and you’ll get one piece of Dark Iron Plate. The merchant will restock after four days – you can just meditate and buy another tunic as soon as it’s available. As long as you’ve got the money, you can repeat the process indefinitely.

    If you know about the infinite gold glitch, you can use this to your advantage and get way more dark iron plates. Go to the merchant, buy the armor, dismantle is, then sell it to Willis in White Orchard before killing him with the bees. Every time he respawns he’ll have a dark iron plate on him.
