The Best Armors To Protect You In The Witcher 3

Even for someone like Geralt of Rivia, hunting monsters is a difficult task. Many of the world’s magical beings can’t be reasoned with or negotiated with. They’d rather burn down defenseless communities and rip the people apart limb from limb. To stand a chance against these animals, the White Wolf must come prepared.

To that aim, we’ll list the greatest armor sets available in The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt and its different DLCs for Geralt. We’ll rate armor sets based on their overall effectiveness, as well as their accessibility and game playability. To put it another way, we’re grading the items below according to how well they let Geralt accomplish what he does best: kick insane quantities of ass and look good doing it. All of Geralt’s armor parts look fantastic, even lifelike, thanks to the hard work of CD Projekt Red’s artists.

Nilfgaardian Armor

Comparisons between Netflix’s drama and CD Projekt Red’s game are unavoidable but inaccurate. Due to the open-ended nature of The Witcher 3, no two players will have the same experience. However, we believe that The Witcher 3 did a better job defining the Nilfgaardians than the first season of the series.

This free DLC armor set allows Witcher 3 players to put themselves in the Black Ones shoes truly. Wearing this gear will give you a decent increase in your damage resistance in all types. However, because this set lacks offensive bonuses, it’s best for players who have problems avoiding assaults or wish to roleplay as a Nilfgaardian loyalist.

Skellige Armor

The Skellige Armor is another free piece of DLC from CD Projekt Red. If the Skellige archipelago charmed you with its gorgeous islands, fearsome creatures, and interesting culture, this armor set is a great way to demonstrate your affection for it.

The Skellige set, like the Nilfgaardian set, focuses on improving Geralt’s defensive abilities. Aside from roleplaying, this kit will aid rookie Witchers in learning how to fight in their early stages. The Skellige and Nilfgardian sets should be thought of as training suits; they’ll help you find your bearings early on, but you’ll ultimately swap them in for more adaptable armor sets.

Viper Armor

The Viper Set has a lot going for it: it looks a lot like Geralt’s legendary Kaer Morhen armor, it greatly improves the White Wolf’s defenses, and it comes with two swords that wreak havoc in the Witcher 3’s late-game! To obtain the Viper Set, you must first complete the Hearts of Stone expansion pack, the first of The Witcher 3’s main DLC.

Except for the Viper Venomous Silver Sword, you’ll have to make most of the items in this Set yourself. Without giving anything away about Hearts of Stone, we can mention that you’ll have to aid Olgeird von Everec to acquire it.

Kaer Morhen Armor

719-0-1443524690-5735103

The majority of the Witchers we encounter in-game life in Kaer Morhen. Many great and legendary warriors have called this historic stronghold home since the School of the Wolf built it. Geralt of Rivia is one of them; after all, he is known as the White Wolf for a reason. He wears this brilliant piece of armor as proof of his loyalty.

From the beginning of the game, Geralt wears Kaer Morhen chest armor. This medium leather chest plate provides enough protection against most types of harm. It also looks great and serves as a part of Geralt’s signature costume. Unless you improve the Kaer Morhen armor over time, it will rapidly become obsolete.

Assassin’s Armor Set

maxresdefault-9115520

Early on in the game, players can get the Assassin’s Armor set. In reality, the entire set isn’t awe-inspiring. The Critical Hit Chance advantage that the gauntlets provide, on the other hand, is a true standout. The remainder of the set’s defensive boosts aren’t horrible, but they don’t compare to even a handful of pieces of common gear.

These gauntlets are a must-have if you want to develop a build that focuses on Combat Skills. You may either discover these gauntlets lying about or make them quite quickly. Only a white hood and a concealed sword are lacking from the Assassin’s kit.

Viper School Armor Set

8371b7077fab7760ac3673a8ef83c03e-1171655

Geralt’s classic outfit fans, rejoice! The Viper outfit has the same appearance as Geralt’s first suit, but it has greater stats and perks. You may now design superior builds without losing offensive or defensive power. The Viper armor increases poison damage to your strikes, as its name suggests.

Before the players get too enthusiastic, we should definitely highlight a few things. First and foremost, the Viper set is only available to those who possess the Hearts of Stone expansion. You’ll also need to locate schematics for each piece of armor included in this package. Finally, to make the Viper armor, you’ll need the currency and ingredients.

Griffin School Armor Set

Geralt’s classic outfit fans, rejoice! The Viper outfit has the same appearance as Geralt’s first suit, but it has greater stats and perks. You may now design superior builds without losing offensive or defensive power. The Viper armor increases poison damage to your strikes, as its name suggests.

Before the players get too enthusiastic, we should definitely highlight a few things. First and foremost, the Viper set is only available to those who possess the Hearts of Stone expansion. You’ll also need to locate schematics for each piece of armor included in this package. Finally, to make the Viper armor, you’ll need the currency and ingredients.

Toussaint Knight’s Tourney Armor

the_witcher_3_wild_hunt_blood_and_wine_toussaint-knights-armor_rgb-copy-2152686

Geralt prefers armor that keeps him nimble and energetic as a Witcher. Normally, the White Wolf avoids putting on bulky armor that would slow him down on the task. When he needs to duke it out with a powerful adversary, Geralt will wear a robust suit of plate mail armor now and again.

The Toussaint Knight Tourney armor has a high defense rating at the expense of speed and endurance. This outfit also happens to be one of the coolest-looking suits of armor in the game. If you can’t find this precise edition, you can settle for one of the set’s variations.

Tesham Mutna Armor

maxresdefault-8085911

The Tesham Mutna Armor Set, on the other hand, is found in The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine DLC. Blood and Wine are about vampires and aristocracy, as the title indicates. The Tesham Mutna Armor set embodies both of these concepts; it’s a fine, schmancy suit of knight armor that saps the life from Geralt’s foes.

It’s not the finest heavy armor in the game, but it’s certainly one of the most stylish. Furthermore, this set is rather difficult to obtain: you’ll need to finish the La Cage au Fou quest before scouring every inch of a hidden vampire lair you’ll come upon.

Hen Gaidth Armor Set

witcher-3-best-armor-hen-gaidth-armor-924x520-3419852

The Hen Gaidth set is available if you buy the Blood and Wine expansion for The Witcher 3. This armor is large and hefty, yet it has incredible protective powers. Overall, the Hen Gaidth set boosts damage reduction by more than 40%!

You must actively look for this set, as it is possible to overlook it in the middle of a game. We don’t want to give anything away. Just keep an eye out for the quest ‘What Lies Unseen.’ We’ve reached the pinnacle of the vampire video game renaissance! This Crimson Red outfit of plate mail armor is perfect for the occasion.

Manticore School Armor Set

tw3_blood_and_wine_manticore_school_gear-8261128

This appearance may always be used as inspiration for Geralt’s attire in the Netflix Witcher series. Fans of The Witcher 2 will remark how closely this set mimics Geralt’s primary suit in that game. This set is highly efficient and effective, aside from being a flashback to the White Wolf’s second excursion.

Unlike most of the other armor sets on this list, the Manticore armor does not specialize in just one area. However, it provides a well-balanced mix of stats and bonus effects that will see you through the majority of the game. You’ll probably wear Manticore armor until you can make a more specialized set if you can get your hands on it (if you choose to).

Wolf School Armor Set

maxresdefault-9191823

This ensemble includes a stylish jacket for which you will not have to pay $400. The Witchers of Kaer Morhen love Wolven armor, which resembles the armor worn by Eskel during The Witcher 3. Players that wish to develop an Adrenaline build should get this set as soon as possible!

To be more precise, players will need to get each armor part in this set’s schematics. It will take a lot of time and money to finish this set, but it will be well worth it. Best of all, after you reach New Game +, you may create the Legendary variations of this armor!

Ursine School Armor Set

cd2f1ea8c3ccba8786c0c2ce37807dff-7413097

Geralt’s outfit grows increasingly tough and toughened when the Ursine set is upgraded. The Ursine Armor will make Geralt seem like an armored juggernaut in its ultimate stages!

The Ursine armor is a massive suite with high defensive power, as you can undoubtedly tell simply by looking at it. This kit, on the other hand, is ideal for Grenade and Potion builds. Geralt can guzzle elixirs and lob bombs like the Green Goblin with the correct mix of talents! This set also increases Quen’s intensity by 200 percent after completion!

Feline School Gear Set

witcher-3-feline-armor-set-3014522

A cat lover’s dream comes true with this set. Not only does the Feline armor look fantastic, but it also significantly improves Geralt’s combat abilities! You’ll need this suit if you want to develop a build that focuses on Critical Chance and Critical Damage.

Geralt of Rivia transforms into a maelstrom of silver and steel in the Feline armor. Many experienced Witcher 3 players consider it necessary for Death March difficulty – at least early in a game. According to the legend, Geralt’s expertise is melee fighting, therefore it’s no surprise that he favors the Feline armor. The best part is that you don’t need any DLC to get started!

Grandmaster Wolven Armor

maxresdefault-3774218

If you’re a die-hard Witcher 3 fan who hasn’t yet played the Blood and Wine expansion, consider picking it up for the Grandmaster Armor Sets, as well as the captivating plot and interesting new places. The Grandmaster armors are enhanced versions of the different Witcher School armors, including the Griffin, Ursine, Feline, Wolven, and Manticore sets.

While all of these armor sets are amazing in their own right, we think the Grandmaster Wolven set is the most important for anybody running a Combat/Sign Hybrid build. The Grandmaster Wolven set will be the cornerstone of one of the most effective, flexible, and enjoyable builds in the game if you distribute your points appropriately.
