The Witcher 3 Ursine gear: How to get all Ursine armor and Ursine sword locations

How to complete the Ursine gear sets.

The Witcher 3 Ursine gear - or Bear gear - is the one focused on heavy armour. Rather than dodging or worrying about signs you simply wade into battle and soak up damage as you return it in huge doses.

If you like to play as a tank then this is the set for you, it's simple, but incredibly effective.

On this page:

The Witcher 3 has a vast array of different armour sets to wear. While many of these can simply be found lying around the world, the most powerful items must be crafted using diagrams you can find out in the world.

The best armours are often the Witcher School gear, each of which has a quest line associated with it. While you can always follow the quests themselves, you can also just go and pick up the diagrams anyway.

If you're looking for more assistance, our Witcher 3 walkthrough can help.
