The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Guide On Manticore Witcher Set, Location, Stats and more
The Manticore Witcher Set is one of the Grandmaster tier items exclusive to Blood and Wine, the latest DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. These items can only be crafted by a grandmaster smith specific to the Toussaint Region once you collect the corresponding diagrams.
Grandmaster smith Lafargue is located in the city of Beauclair. There's an apprentice vendor at one of the weapon shops. Talk to him and he'll offer his assistance in the Side Quest "Master Master Master Master!". During this quest, Lafargue will request diagrams to craft his first set of Grandmaster armor.
Manticore Steel Sword:
West of Corvo Bianco, past the lake with the island on the western shore, you'll spot a ruin on the map of the Gorgon Foothills. In the Bastoy Prison Ruins, climb to the tower at the top of the hill with partial wooden struts still jutting upward. The first diagram is found on the wooden balcony here.
Manticore Armor (Medium):
Travel southeast from Gelenser Farm in the southeastern quadrant of Toussaint. There's a cave where Lebioda once stayed here. Look at the notes pinned to the final chamber of the underground.
Manticore Trousers (Medium) + Manticore Boots (Medium):
Northwest of Plegmund's Bridge and north of Lebioda's Statue, you'll find an Abandoned Temple to the Prophet Lebioda in Sansretour Valley. Use Aard on the cracked doorway at the end of the path, then use Witcher's senses to spot a red box near the two steps contained both diagrams.
Manticore Silver Sword:
On the shores west of the central city, travel along the shore south of the Palace Gardens. There's a cave entrance called the Murky Delve in the Seidhe Llygad. Enter the submerged cave entrance. Follow the left path up the steps and over the rock platforms, past the discarded crate piles and through a narrow path. Use Aard to knock down the cavern wall to finally reach the hidden chapel. A guardian is rested on the altar with several red glowing loot boxes. Open them all to find this sword diagram.
Manticore Gauntlets (Medium):
The final diagram is found at the Lake of Cleansing northeast of Basane Farm. Dive into the water from the small covered dock and use your senses to spot a red loot crate at the bottom of the water.
