The Witcher 3: Manticore School Gear - Locations & How to Get It
The Witcher 3: Manticore School Gear - Locations & How to Get It ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
The Manticore Gear is the newest gear for Geralt which is available for you to get after the release of the Blood and Wine DLC expansion. It is a medium-type armor that works wonders if you go for the so-called "alchemy" build. What's more, this armor also provides a lot of resistance against the various poison-damage types of creatures, which means that you will be a lot safer wearing it.
Oh and let's not forget that it is made in a way to look exactly like the main armor set which Geralt had in the first game. This will most likely be the "selling point" for some of the old-school players.
How to get your hands on it?
Similar to all the different Gear sets we've covered so far, you need to find the Manticore Gear diagrams first and then craft each part of the set. However, unlike the rest, this Gear is of Grandmaster quality, which has its ups and downs. Of course, it's awesome to have items of this caliber but the downside is that you need to find a Grandmaster craftsman in order to make it. As you probably know, there are not that many around.
The Witcher 3 - Manticore Steel Sword Diagram
Your journey starts by traveling to the Bastoy Prison, which is located just north of Beauclair. Needless to say, there will be many strong enemies while you are travelling to this point so prepare yourself for some nasty surprises. If you made it to the location, your next job will be to go all the way to the top of the prison tower. There will be a couple of more foes to deal with there. Once done, use your Witcher Senses to find the diagram.
The Witcher 3 - Manticore Chest Armor Diagram
This Armor Diagram can be found close to the Gelenser Farm inside a big cave. Having said that, the location is right next to the forest, which means that there will be plenty of villains on your way there.
When you reach the cave, go inside, clear it from monsters and explore each room. The chest which contains the diagram will be located at the very end next to some writings on the wall.
The Witcher 3 - Manticore Trousers & Boots Diagrams
Unlike the items mentioned above, the Manticore Trousers and Boots Diagrams are located in one place.
The first place where you need to go is to the statue of Prophet Lebioda. When you first get there, you will see that there is a big temple that has definitely seen better days. However, in order to go inside, you need to use Aard to break the wall which is blocking the entrance. Once done, just follow the path until you reach the last room. Use your Witcher Senses and you will see that there is a box stuck in the wall which contains the two diagrams. Brake the wall and claim your prize.
The Witcher 3 - Manticore Silver Sword Diagram
The Manticore Silver Sword is one of the coolest looking weapons in the game right now. That said, you need to go to the Palace Gardens in order to begin your hunt for that priceless diagram.
As soon as you get there, take the road which goes by the shore until you reach the shallow waters. After that, proceed swimming and towards the small island located in the middle where you will find a cave. It goes without saying but you have to be ready to kill a lot of enemies down there because this place is packed. In addition, there is a strange substance in the air which makes it difficult to breathe so your effectiveness will not be top-notch.
If you manage to survive the initial fight, continue further until you reach a room full of Kikimore Workers. They are not that hard to defeat so you should have no problems dealing with them. The next step is to use Aard to destroy the wall in that room so that it can open your way to the diagram.
The Witcher 3 - Manticore Gauntlets Diagram
Last, but definitely not least, we have the Manticore Gauntlets Diagram. You need to head east from Cockatrice until you reach the Lake of Cleansing, which is actually one of the most beautiful places in The Witcher 3. Unfortunately, it is also full of many different enemies, some of whom are pretty strong and can definitely put up a challenge.
When you get there, locate where the big dock is and go until its very end. After that, jump into the water and look for the chest which contains the Gauntlets diagram. It is possible to do it without even using your Witcher Senses but it will probably take a lot more time.
Once you find the chest just open it and you are good to go. Congratulations, you now have the entire Manticore School Gear Diagrams!
After you got every item mentioned above, it is time to focus your efforts on finding a Grandmaster craftsman. As mentioned above, this is not easy to do because there are not that many people who have the needed skills. Having said that, there is one located in Beauclair and his name is Lafargue. It shouldn't be that hard to actually find him there because he is located in the middle of this settlement.
Unlike the other Gear sets we covered so far, this currently has only one variation. However, it is possible to see upgrades in the future updates of the games because nearly every other set has one.
