The Witcher 3 Grandmaster Ursine Set

Grandmaster Ursine Armor
This looks so sweet

The Witcher 3 DLC Blood and Wine added a whole new tier of armor to the game, Grandmaster. There are now a total of 5 Armor Sets which can be upgraded to ‘Grandmaster’ status. In order to have access to these armors, players need to meet the Grandmaster Armorer in Beauclair, the capitol of Toussaint. Meeting him triggers your quests to find the diagrams needed to make Grandmaster equipment. The following is a walkthrough showing how to get the Grandmaster Ursine Armor.

Where to Find the Grandmaster Ursine Armor, Silver Sword & Gauntlets Schematics

Once the set mission is started, you will be asked to explore a ruined home in Flovive, north-east from Beauclair. The house is big red house that appears to be collapsing into the ground. Along the backside of the house (where there is a bit of a sinkhole) is a rock wall which can be destroyed using AARD. Clearing the stone reveals a cave. Inside the cave on the right is the first 3 schematics inside a chest.

Once you’ve looted the three schematics, you will receive Charite Gontran de Tufo’s journal. The journal tells you to go to a nearby lake to look for a cave. Inside the cave there is a couple centipedes you will have to fight. Follow the Witcher symbols, fight the Centipede at the end of the tunnel and loot the corpse there to get the 3 remaining schematics.
