In this guide, we’re going to show you where to find diagrams for Superior Griffin Gear, their stats and the ingredients you’ll need to craft it.

We have also prepared for you the following guides:
UPDATE: The big 1.07 update brought new level requirements for many armor sets and weapons – Griffin is one of them. We’ve updated the guide with the new data, so if the game tells you a different number than ours, you’re probably playing an older version.

Superior Griffin Set Stats

The stats of the set are similar in type to those of the basic and enhanced version, only significantly stronger. It offers a great increase in sign intensity and elemental damage resistance. Both the armor and the swords require you to be level 26.

Superior Griffin Silver Sword

This diagram is in a cave west of Elverum Lighthouse, in the southern part of Ard Skellig. When you enter the cave, just keep to your left until you stumble upon a couple of chests. One of them holds the blueprint. And be wary of level 16 bears.

Superior Griffin Steel Sword

The steel sword diagram is on An Skellig, north-west of Urialla Harbor. There’s a ruined village there, with a shrine a bit to the north. When you get to the shrine, you’ll have to fight a couple of level 24 bandits. When you’re done with them, look behind the shrine – the diagram is in the chest.

Superior Griffin Armor, Boots, Gauntlets and Trousers

The diagrams for the rest of the set are located at the fartherst north-eastern point of Ard Skellig. They are in the bandit camp at Gaints’ Toes, in a wrecked boat on the shore. The bandits in the camp are level 24, so they’ll probably give you a run for your money. When you pass under the stone arc, turn left and you’ll see the chest in the boat.

Materials Needed For Upgrading The Set

You can get most of the materials needed for upgrading by dismantling old items. The rest can be bought at stores. You’ll need to find a Journeyman blacksmith and armorer first, though.
