In The Witcher 3, armor is used in order to protect you and change your appearance. There are three categories of armor – light, medium and heavy. There are also four types of it – common, magical, master and witcher armor. Using a single set or armor (boots, gloves, trousers and chest armor) provides additional protection. In this guide, we’ll show you the look and stats of every piece of The Witcher 3 Armor, along with their locations or ways to get them.
Common ArmorCommon armor is the weakest. It can be used as a change of clothes if you get tired of wearing the same old outfit all the time, but provides meager protection. Some of it’s worth keeping, since most of the elegant or formal garb is in this category – you may need it for a quest down the line.

Master ArmorMaster armors provide great bonuses to protection from certain types of (mostly) physical damage. They are great for dealing with enemies that rely on brute force, and will be your safety net for a large part of the game. It is recognizable by the blue background colour in the inventory.
