First off, there's no point to crafting for the purpose of selling. You'll make no profit that way, and you're better off just selling the components directly. In many cases, you'll have to buy bits of stuff to craft, and the charge for this is so high that it puts you firmly in the red.

Armor

Geralt is a bit of a glass cannon, so honestly most of his armor options give such a small boost that they aren't worth crafting/buying. Your chest armor is going to give you most of your defensive improvements, and your secondary armor bits' stats won't change much throughout the adventure. For instance, you might get +30 defense from your chest armor, and +2 from your boots, if you're lucky.

From the start, you should have the Blue Stripes Combat Jacket (since all PC users got the EE upgrade, and the EE is the only console version available...) which will probably last you until you can craft Kayran Carapace Armor. You might find a bit of useful armor occasionally from here out, but the piece you're really shooting for is Vran Armor which must be crafted, but is also the end result of a long and drawn out quest, which you've got to start early and carry through each chapter.

As far as the other bits of armor go, there's not a lot to really recommend. Just equip whatever's available, and if you see something that's a significant improvement, consider crafting or buying it, but the gains from these bits are typically laughably small. For instance, the base armor of boots never gets above 2 at any point during the first playthrough of the game.

Weapons

Again, some long quest lines and/or careful ingredient hoarding will reward you in Act 3 with a pair of powerful swords - Zerrikanterment and Caerme, which both must be crafted.

In the meantime, you can craft some interesting Meteorite swords, although expect to pay out the nose for these. I seem to remember in the Enhanced Edition that I found a plan in Act 2 which I was able to craft, and which gave me a large boost to my damage, but it might have been a glitch - it was called Marag Bator.

Items cheats The Witcher 3 Guide

additem ('x',y,z) - you receive y pieces of item x and it is placed in z slot. Enter the item's name instead of x, insert a value instead of y (for example, 10) and insert a slot number instead of z (for example 1). Important - y and z parameters are not mandatory.

EXAMPLES:

additem('Novigraadan sword 1',1,1) - you receive one novigraadan sword which will be placed in first weapon slot

additem('Gryphon Armor') - you receive one Gryphon armor

When I craft items it will use the crafting mat and money but i do not recieve the item. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition.

Weapons and alchemy are important, sure, but good Witcher 3 armor can make a day and night difference when roaming the woods. Exploring The Witcher 3's vast and intriguing world comes with a cost, and while Geralt of Rivia is more than used to dealing with monsters by now, that doesn’t mean he won’t need all the help he can to survive from a good set of Witcher 3 armor. 

Literally hundreds of different parts can be mixed and matched, divided in different categories, sets, and rarity. It can be as daunting as the rest of the game, so here’s our rundown to everything you should keep in mind before jumping into a fight.

How Witcher 3 armor works

In The Witcher 3, armor is divided into three main categories: Light, Medium, and Heavy. At the same time, pieces are separated into chest, gauntlets, trousers, and boots. Each category has a significant impact on Geralt’s movement, and the preference will vary depending on your playstyle.

Wearing a light armor will give Geralt enough room to dodge more often without worrying about stamina that much, but enemies will hit harder. While I stuck with a heavy type of armor in the late game, I found medium gear to be the most balanced option, and the one that you’ll come across more easily during your ventures. The Witcher gear sets (below) are the most powerful pieces that you can find and craft, and each is perfect for a particular playstyle.

Keep in mind that, as well as with weapons, you’ll have to repair your armor from time to time. Durability can be recovered by paying a fee to any armorer or weaponsmith NPC, or by using kits that can be either found or bought from merchants. These can be used from your inventory at any time, and are divided into different types as well, varying how successful the repair will be in terms of recovered durability.

Where to find and how to craft Witcher 3 armor

One of the best things about armor being so dense in The Witcher 3 is that you can find new pieces littered pretty much anywhere. Most common enemies will likely drop a useless sword rather than a better chest armor for you, but it’s well balanced. Your best bet for looting, however, relies on chests scattered throughout the world, along with some quest rewards.

Merchants also tend to have an interesting selection of armor, so you should pay a visit to the nearest armorer in town. If you want to increase the number of NPCs from which to buy from, make sure to always do contracts that ask Geralt to kill monsters in an infested area. As soon as the job is done, townsfolk will come back to reclaim their homes, and it’s likely that one of them will have something new on sale.

As expected, the best gear comes from crafting, but you will need a diagram for each piece. These can be either found or purchased from merchants, which are used as blueprints to unlock the piece on the crafting menu, accessible at all times. In there, you’ll see the item’s description, stats, and needed materials.

Materials can be found in the wild, either as loot from bodies (or houses, depending on how much you care about morale) and inside chests as well. But there’s a key element at play, which is the ability to dismantle not only armor but also weapons and items that don’t have use in the game. It’s gonna cost a small fee from a blacksmith, but it’s worth it. 

Even if you think that it’s pointless to pick up lower level weapons when you start wearing decent gear, always keep in mind that it can be turned into materials. In addition, dismantling gives not only materials but a lighter weight for Geralt overall.

Levels and upgrading Witcher 3 armor

Armor in The Witcher 3 is tied to a certain level. It is possible, however, to find, purchase, or obtain higher level gear for Geralt but it will be useless until you meet the required level (unless you just want to dismantle it.)

In addition, armor pieces can be upgraded with runes - items that increase stats for Geralt as long as the armor he’s using has slots for them. Some of them will increase the intensity of Signs, while others are advantages for Geralt’s movement speed, defense, and so on.

Witcher 3 Scavenger hunt sets

But that’s not all! The best armor in The Witcher 3 are sets, each representing a witcher school. Diagrams are needed once more, but there’s a catch, since all diagrams for each set have to be found individually throughout the world.

The sets are tracked through Scavenger Hunts, which are triggered once you find a map or a note talking about the whereabouts of each piece. These specific items can be purchased from merchants to obtain such quests, but can also appear as you’re doing question marks in the map and side quests.

There are six witcher sets, four of them part of the base game and two additional ones for each expansion:

  • Griffin Set: Diagrams can be found in Velen.
  • Feline Set: Diagrams can be found in Velen and Novigrad.
  • Ursine Set: Diagrams can be found in Skellige.
  • Wolven Set: Diagrams can be found in Kaer Morhen.
  • Viper Set: Part of Hearts of Stone expansion.
  • Manticore Set: Part of Blood & Wine expansion.

Upgrading Witcher gear sets

Once you obtain and craft one of the witcher sets in The Witcher 3, you’ll notice they’re called Basic. This is due to the different tiers that such sets can be upgraded to: Basic, Enhanced, Superior, Mastercrafted, and Grandmaster.

In order to unlock the possibility to create Mastercrafted sets, you’ll have to talk with a master armorer. Fergus Graem, located in Crow's Perch, Velen, unlocks the “Master Armorers” quest. The minimum level for this mission is 24.

Grandmaster gear is exclusive to Blood & Wine, allowing you to create level 40 versions of each set. You’ll have to find and talk to Grandmaster Smith in Beauclair, unlocking the grandmaster scavenger hunts.

They’re all tied to certain levels, and in order to perform the upgrades, you’ll need to find the corresponding diagrams for each tier. It’s also advised to not get rid of the former set since Geralt can’t create an Enhanced set from scratch. 

So, in order to jump from Basic to Enhanced, for example, you’ll need to have each piece of armor either equipped or on your inventory, plus the required materials and crowns. Keep in mind that while armor sets will get better stats with each tier (and become even more stylish) the cost will be significant.

It’s not necessary to have the entire set to start using these armor pieces, but the stats will be much better if you wear it all together. Scavenger hunts can be daunting at first, but as long as you keep track of them as you progress through the game, it’s likely that you’ll find them early, and be able to make the most of them.

Like most other competitive role-playing games of the modern times, The Witcher 2 offers players the luxury to practice crafting.

Crafting is not only fun, but can also provide you with some of the most powerful items in the game. Though many learn to craft quickly, the art is difficult to master as it requires quite a bit of exploration and multiple steps of crafting.

Crafting Basics:
Though crafting is something non-exclusive to The Witcher 2, the game does tend to deviate from norms in such co-curricular in-game activities. Alchemy is another example of this.

The items that can be crafted are crafting components, potions, oils, bombs, traps, lures, armor and weapons.

In The Witcher 2, crafting is done with the help of schematic diagrams. These are basically blue-prints for the crafting of the item. Without a schematic diagram for a specific item, Geralt won’t even know it can be crafted.

Once you have a schematic diagram, it will tell you the details of the required ingredients and the amount to make the item. Most ingredients themselves have schematic diagrams and can either be found in nature or crafted like other advance items.

After finding the required ingredients of the item, Geralt must take the schematic and ingredients to the craftsman, designated by a plier icon on the map.

Many ingredients can be bought from merchants from very early in the game. It is best to plan ahead and start collecting ingredients for crafting during your journey(s). Do note that though ingredients can themselves be crafted, it is not an economically cost effective.

If a merchant runs out of ingredients, the stock will always generate if you spend some time out of town and revisit. Patience is the key here, and the more you have the better the fruit.

Note on Alchemy and Potion Crafting:
Alchemy Formulae Guide – Those who have played The Witcher 1 will know the powerful influence potions can have in the game series.

Though in the sequel potions are potentially just as strong in-terms of effects and buffs, their method of application and duration has changed vastly.

Most crafting addicts tend to invest a lot in crafting potions. While the formula would’ve worked brilliantly in the first game, potions in The Witcher 2 are slightly less significant. There are two reasons for this:

Firstly, now Geralt cannot consume potions in the heat of battle; he can only consume them when he is meditating.

Secondly, as always potions have a limited duration of effectiveness. This is fine for the most part, but the real problem is that the timer runs even during conversations. Because of this you will notice many times that your potions will run out before the buffs can be utilized in battles.

Now, the issue that arises because of this change in mechanics of potions is the questionability of investing in potion-making. Personally, it is recommended that players should more on crafting other equipment as it will be a better investment. Read our Alchemy Guide for more!

Where to Find Schematics:
It’s a little difficult to find schematics for an item you wish to craft randomly. Because of this, we’ll give you a head start in the schematics of certain items and where to find them.

We have a detailed guide right here with the schematics for a big list of items.

Ερωτηματολόγιο The Witcher 2

Like any role-playing game, money makes the money go round - so you'll want to consider various The Witcher 3 money making methods as you play.

Life as a Witcher is hard; you're constantly being shouted at, have to go around fighting all manner of things that want to kill you, and nobody wants to pay you what you're worth.

It's enough of a hassle just travelling around, the last thing you want to have to worry about is money. After all, that's what real life is for.

So, to help you get the most out of the game - from when you start to White Orchard to simply exploring the world - here is some advice to keep the Crowns flowing.

How to make money in The Witcher 3

There's no one single technique to keep your cash flow up - you have to keep a number of things in mind as you play the game, such as the following...

Making money in White Orchard

While all of the tips are useful at all points in the game, you might be a little concerned when starting off in the game. So, here are a couple of White Orchard specific tips for the budding Witcher.

First of all, kill everything living thing and loot them, you'll be able to find a wealth of materials and items on them. Sell any cow hides you have to the merchant that you save from a Griffin during the early stages of the story, he reappears next to the Woesong Bridge marker.

Also, make sure to sell gear to the quartermaster and not the dwarven blacksmith, as the former gives you a bit more money per piece.

Loot everything

This is the main one, the best way to get money is to sell things to merchants around the world. The best way to get these items is to pick them up from the containers you find littering every ancient ruin, luxurious castle, and random peasant's house.

Pick everything up, all the time, no matter where you go. To this end, you'll need to upgrade your inventory space pretty quickly, so look into getting some saddlebags for Roach early on. To help you find things, use your Witcher Senses to make everything lootable appear with a yellow outline.

Know where to sell items

So, you're loaded up with so many items that you can no longer run, what now? Now you need to sell them off, but even here you need to be savvy to get the most money. Different merchants will give you different prices, so it's worth knowing where to go with each item.

If someone sells predominantly swords, then they'll give you a better price for weapons, if someone sells armour, then they'll pay better for armour. Don't sell all of your items to the same merchant, you'll lose out on a lot of money if you do so. Sell smart, not hard.

Look for Smuggler's Caches

Perhaps the most profitable places you can visit are the Smuggler's Caches. These are floating items that you can loot and they can be found in the various seas all across the map. Most notably, you can find a lot of them in Skellige.

Make sure to sail around and investigate these whenever you find them. They'll be a huge boon to your finances.

Take on contracts

People will pay money for you to solve their problems. Given that you're the only person in the world who can solve these problems, it does make it fairly profitable.

Finishing off the various missions and Witcher contracts you find as you adventure around is a great way to boost the size of you Witcher wallet. It also helps you level up, which in turn leads to more expensive items, which leads to more gold.

Be frugal

You can save a lot of money by not needlessly upgrading your gear or buying items you don't need. Craft items where possible, and try and just use the weapons you find as you make your way through the world rather than buying new ones.

Given how quickly you level up it's rare that you won't outgrow your items anyway, so don't sink money into things until you're near the endgame. It will save you a lot of money, which is a bit like earning money.
