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

How to complete the Manticore series of gear quests.

Witcher 3 Manticore gear is likely to be the last set you'll pick up.

It was introduced in the Blood and Wine expansion and is only available at Grandmaster level. That means you've only got to find one set of diagrams, which, if you've been collecting them all, should feel like being given a shoulder massage.

It's another medium armour set but it gives bonuses to bombs and other alchemical pursuits, making it perfect for those who like to use gadgets.

The Witcher 3 Easter Eggs and Secrets - 9 of the Best

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.
