Witcher 3 Armor Wolf School Gear

Wolf School Gear is an armor and weapon set in The Witcher 3. It is one of the best weapons and armor, and it was added to the game as part of a free DLC. In this guide, we’re going to show you where to find the diagrams for crafting the Wolf School Gear, its stats and the materials required for crafting it.

We have also prepared for you the following guides:

Wolven Silver Sword

Ride to the Ruined Tower north of Kaer Morhen. You’ll have to defeat a level 23 Wraith to get to the diagram, which is on a body propped up against a wall in the middle of the fortress.

Wolven Steel Sword

Go to the Bastion west of Kaer Morhen. After you defeat the Wraiths waiting inside, look for a body in the rubble near the northern wall. The diagram for the steel sword is on it.

Wolven Armor, Trousers, Boots and Gauntlets

Go to the Signal Tower south-west of Kaer Morhen. When you enter, climb the scaffolding and open the chest on the left. The notes inside will tell you of the Wolven armor and the teleportation crystals. Climb down and examine the portals. Shoot the right one with Aard from a few feet away. Turn around and exit the room, turning right before you exit the tower. Climb up the scaffolding on the outer side and grab the crystal from the wall. Put it into the left portal, blast it with Aard, then jump into the green vortex. You’ll have to fight a level 23 Wraith in the cave – after you finish, you’ll find the diagrams on a corpse on the floor.

Wolf Gear Stats

The Wolven Set is medium weight armor which provides moderate protection, increased sign intensity and attack power. The armor and swords both require a level 14 character.

    Any news yet on the upgrades for this armour? Got the basic stuff, but was looking to max it out to go with my Ursine and Feline sets.

    1. A

      I know that Hattori in Novigrad sells the upgrade maps for parts 1 & 5 of the scavenger hunt, not sure where to get the other maps though, but they’re out there.

    2. P

      is this DLC for PC aswell??? i cant see it on the steam store.

      1. B
        Ben Vuchetich

        Neither can I. I’m really confused because nobody else seems to be having this problem.

      2. M

        It is a free DLC btw a free update. You have it already.

    3. T

      There are six maps in total to buy. They can be purchased from the following:
      Eibhear Hattori, the Master Blacksmith of Novigrad sells two of the maps.
      The Blacksmith of Lindenvale sells one map.
      The Armorer in Novigrad square sells one map.
      The Armorer in Kaer Trolde Castle sells one map.
      The Blacksmith in Kaer Muire sells one map.

      1. U

        Kaer Muire is a ghost town after finishing the game. Any idea how to get the map from the Kaer Muire Blacksmith?

    4. A

      hi, when can you go to Kaer Morhen..im currently doing the quests at novigrad..and I keep dyiing a lot as well inspite of being level 11.(brought the game just 2 days back).

      1. D

        I’m level 23 and on the Skellege Isles, and still havent gotten to Kaer Morhen, i hear that it takes quite a while

  2. E
    Evil Hypnotist

    Pretty disappointed there are no upgrades, you have to defeat lvl 23 wraiths to get lvl 14 armour? Ac well, it’s free I guess.

    1. A

      There are upgrades just like every other Witcher set, from basic to Mastercrafted. The locations for all the upgrades and maps just haven’t been found yet.

      1. J

        It’s even grandmastercrafted if you have the blood and wine dlc

  3. H

    How ca I get to Kaer Morhen?

    1. H

      So now I know I have to do Main Quest, So I´d like to ask once more: I´m at Echoes of the past quest, how long will it take me to Kaer Morhen?

      1. J

        About two more main quests. Ciri’s story and Freya’s garden.

  4. M

    I’ve found the vendors which will give you maps that unlock quests for the upgrades:
    – Hitori and the Armorer on Hierarch Square in Novigrad ( part 1 and 5 from Hatori, part 4 from the Armorer)
    – the Blacksmith in Lindenvale (part 2)
    – the Armorer at Kear Trolde (part 6)

    Can’t seem to find part 3.

  5. J

    is it part of GOG patch 1.05+6 Dlcs?

    1. No, this was released today along with alternate Triss, DLCs 9 and 10

  6. M

    Can’t interact with the crystal outside the tower.

    1. J

      Can’t seem to pick the crystal up outside the tower…have tried blasting it from every angle and still can’t pick it up. Grrr

    2. N

      I had that issue too, than I went crazy and jumped all over the scaffolding and fell to my death. My game autosaved when I was in front of that crystal before hand and once it loaded, I was able to loot it. Hope that might help, assuming you still can’t loot it. Good luck 🙂

      1. A

        like nick mentioned already any inability to interact with something is corrected by saving and reloading
        credit for this info goes to the goddamn kair trolde blacksmith who ignored me for so long im ok that his sisters dead

  7. M

    Ok im trying to jump on the green portal but I just crash from the fall every time. Strange cause it makes the noise like entering the portal but I dont know whats happening ?

    1. M

      Hahah was missing the right crystal XD

  8. G

    The armorer by the main square in Novigrad also has a map for part 4 of the scavenger hunt.

  9. F

    I found a Part 6 upgrade map at Kaer Trolde Blacksmith (recommended level is 34).

  10. J

    There is a map in Hierarch Square that can be purchased by the armourer.

  11. C

    Wont let me loot the letter from the watchtower

  12. M

    I cant find the blacksmith in kaer muir. Im in oost game right now. Does this mean I’ll have to restart to compete the gear

    1. B

      No need, just load your save game before you slaughter them. Then go and buy map and save location picture when you track quest, That will do

    2. D

      That blacksmith is not there anymore after a certain part in the story, but you can still get the gear. He sells part 3 of the map which leads to superior chest armor, steel and silver swords, just look for those locations here http://www.gosunoob.com/witcher-3/superior-wolf-gear/

  13. D

    I just cannot get the crystal outside the tower on the ledge it will not let me interact with it, its really annoying.

    1. H

      I did a manual save then fell off cliff and died. After I respawned it worked.

      1. M

        I had the same problem and the save and die and reload worked for me

  14. L

    How did you go to Kaer Morhen?
    It’s not abble to me…

  18. T

    I can’t find the DLC for the wolf gear to download, i already downloded the 12 DLCs but none of them is the wolfgear DLC, and i can’t find any more

  19. S

    the enhanced wolf gear diagram can be found too. just goto the master craftsman in novigrad and buy two maps from him. then scavenger hunt mission for enhanced gear of wolf will start.

  20. C

    How to leave the cave your in when you jump through the vortex? I can loot the Wolf Armor Set, but I have no idea how to get out of that cave. I can not climb down, because I die from falling from too high. There is not portal to get out either. I am lost. Please help.

    1. E

      Same just happened to me!!! What the hell, I cannot see any portal or way out :/

      1. E

        Found a way out on the right (when coming out) and u just slide down 🙂

  21. B

    I can’t open the chest in the signal tower and the diagrams for the armor don’t show up for me. Is anyone else having this problem?

  22. K

    If u already killed Lugos, fear not.. The diagram is in a wooden fort with a Monster Nest inside, its just west of Fyresdal. When entering the Wooden Fort climp to the wall on the right and follow the battement right. The diagram is in a chest on the end. 🙂

  23. V

    Well i have already done the quest that take you to Kaer Morhen a while ago, how can i go back there? i know one of the final quests are in Kaer Morhen as well but i still have a long way ahead of me untill then.

  24. R

    Did anybody solve the issue where you cannot interact with the chest to get the first level Wolf gear? I have all the other upgrades but I cant get in the chest to get the first verion. I have tried death and reloading and still no joy.

  25. J

    It won’t let me open the chest for the letter and it does not show the crystal outside either help?

  26. S

        The frost

  27. S

    I cant fine the dead body which can be looted the wolf school gear part 1 book( scavenger quest for wolf gear ) . That dead body was no there in Ruined Watchtower in Kaer Morhen . Why ??? Somebody help me . Plz … :'(

  28. B

    I am having all of these problems. I cannot see the other crystal, wont let me loot the chest, and I cannot loot base gear armour! Do I have to have original armour?

  29. D

    I’ve tried the saving and reloading thing and I still can’t get the chest to open.

  30. S

    Just here to reiterate how stupid it is to stick the first set of this gear in a place that’s inaccessible most of the game. Best armor for my build and I’m high enough to craft its second tier, but not without the first! Can someone find and post a link that will explain why it’s there!? Getting tired of doing side quests, that may go away once I hit act 2, and finding gear at least 5 levels below me. The loot system is assbackwards

  31. L

    Please help me? Im on PS4 and I was all over those places, but nothing from the Wolf gear shows up! Neither my NPC has maps to sell on this matters! Please help me?

    1. T

      me too you can’t get it

    Also note that after you have updated the game you get the free dlc instantly.
    To get to Kear Morhem you have to play on the main storyline.
    Im now lvl 57 playing the game on + mode. And i have not once had a problem.
    Witcher gear is the strongest gear in the game thus you cant get it too early.
    Look up all the other witcher gear and make an informed choice on yourself. which set of witcher gear would suit your playing style the best. As it does take time to work yourself up to mastercrafted armour. You might as well be getting the armour which you would be glad of.

  33. C

    Ok i have an extreme problem. The chest holds the notes to the portal is unopenable for me. I saved my game and loaded again…6 times. I decide to got the fortresses where the sword diagrams are. I parkoured every area i could to look for the diagrams and still they werent there. Can somebody please tell me whats wrong? Ive seen the armor and the swords along with their stats and its looking to be my favorite set of witcher gear. Pls help

  34. W

    I can’t open the chest or find the crystals needed at the watch tower. pls help does anybody have a fix? I’m on ps4, saved and reloaded the game several times. This armor is really good looking pls i need a fix!

    1. W

      I’m lvl 32 and played out the main story, planning on buying the expansions but not without this armor!

  35. P

    Can’t open chest in tower, no crystal either and no body in the upper check point. I’m level and 26 now and have been to Kaer Morhan several times. I’ve saved and reloaded several times and still nothing, it’s driving me crazy and it’s frustrating. I really wanted the wolf gear but omg, it just won’t respond and give me what I’m after. I have all 6 maps and the upgrades but can’t do squat because I don’t have the first level of the gear. HELP ME PLEASE.

  36. D

    Is this on xbox one? I’ve gone to all the locations where the diagrams should be, but they’re not there, I went to bastion and the body that’s supposed to be there isn’t there, the old each tower has the chest but it doesn’t give me the option to loot anything from it and the crystal is on the wall but nothing happens, and the ruined watch tower has the body that is in the video but it doesn’t give me the option to loot anything from it either.

    this armor is medium but still has less protection than the feline armor. even the swords are weaker. I really am disappointed as hell seeing this. I thought it will be a bridge between the stats of feline & ursine. shame!!

    No One

    Have a glitch where the first scaffolding chest the one closet to the skeleton’s skull doesn’t want to proc for opening as well not having the open highlight when you your Witcher Senses nd I have the Scavenger quest active…the flick?

    1. N
      No One

      Take note I can loot everything else and what wraith? The signal tower is nothing yet rotting wood and loose rubble that’s foing to crumble soon.

      P.S Correcting a bit on my earlier post with the bit of “when you have triggered your Witcher Senses and I have…”
