Superior Bear Ursine Gear | The Witcher 3

Superior Bear Gear is the third tier upgrade for Bear School Gear. In order to get it, you must first have Enhanced Bear Gear. Then you need to find the diagrams, ingredients and a craftsman. In this guide, we’re going to show you the locations of Superior Bear Gear diagrams, the materials needed to craft them, as well as their stats.

We have also prepared for you the following guides:

UPDATE: Several armor sets have had their level requirements changed by patch 1.07, and Bear Gear is one of them. We’ve updated the guide with the new numbers – if the game shows you a lower number, you’re probably playing an older version.

Superior Bear Gear Stats

The Superior Bear Gear has outstanding damage resistance, but the stamina regeneration suffers for it. It also boosts the generation of adrenaline points. You’ll need to be level 30 to use this armor and weapon set.

Superior Ursine Silver Sword

The first diagram is hidden in a cave south-west of the orphanage at Crookback Bog, in Velen. The entrance is hidden behind an illusion, so you’ll need Nehaleni’s Eye, and item you get during the main quest Wandering In The Dark. Use the item to discover the large rocks blocking the entrance aren’t really there. When you enter, go right. The diagram will be waiting for you in a chest.

Superior Ursine Steel Sword

The second diagram is in the Ruined Tower, north-east of Crookback Bog. You’ll have to fight a level 25 Earth Elemental to get it. The chest holding the blueprint is in one of the corners of the ruin.

Superior Ursine Armor, Trousers, Boots and Gauntlets

The rest of the diagrams are a bit north-west of Hanged Man’s Tree, the first signpost you wake up at when you first get to Velen. They are in a cave – there’s wooden scaffolding to the left of the entrance. When you go in, keep going left. You’ll soon stumble upon a bunch of chests – one of them has what you came here for.

Materials You Need For Crafting

The ingredients you’ll need are mostly pretty common – you can get them by dismantling stuff, or you can buy them from a merchant. You’ll need to find a Journeyman armorer and blacksmith to craft these for you.

  2. S

    Is it the best bear set ?

    1. C

      no. there is a higher level called mastercrafted. Not only must you have the diagrams, but you must also unlock the master smiths. for swords, you have to go to Novigrad and complete the quest “Of Swords and Dumplings”. For armor, speak to the smith at crow’s perch and ask him about master armorers. complete the quest and you’ll have that blonde with him cranking out god tier armor for you.
