Primary quest

The Armor quest, which begins in Chapter IV, but also takes up most of Chapter V, is initiated when Geralt finds Berengar at the Lakeside crypt. The errant witcher tells our hero about a legendary suit of armor that once belonged to an equally legendary witcher named "Raven". Rumour has it, he was buried with his armor.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Raven's armor of the Elves Raven's armor by the Order Raven's armor by Kalkstein

There are actually three variations on Raven's armor and depending on the path Geralt has chosen, the components of the armor vary slightly. All three flavours require these first three basic components:

Piece of armor A fragment of Count Kobus de Ruyter's armor aka "Piece of armor", it is found in the crypt by the lakeside when you first meet Berengar. It can also be found in Raven's Crypt.
Notes of an elven minstrel The notes of an elven minstrel, found in a sarcophagus in the Striga's crypt on the island in the swamp cemetery.
Remains of Raven's armor The remains of Raven's Armor, in Raven's sarcophagus in Raven's crypt.

Scoia'tael path Raven's armor of the Elves additionally requires:

Bifunctional fibre and alloy recirculator A bifunctional fiber and alloy recirculator, in a dwarven trunk, in the ancient crypt beneath the old mine in the swamp cemetery.

Order path Raven's armor of the Order additionally requires:

Saint Gregory's litany Saint Gregory's litany, in a sarcophagus in the ancient crypt connected to the striga's crypt.

Witcher/neutral path Raven's armor, as made by Kalkstein, requires:

Magic formula A magic formula. It is found in Agnes of Glanville's trunk in her lair.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being marked as a 'Primary quest', it is not necessary to complete this quest in order to finish the game, though why would you not? Geralt looks so nice in his spiffy new armor.
  • Geralt can learn about Raven's armor from either Berengar, Zoltan, Triss or Rayla.
  • Extra XP: There are additional 1000 XP added while Geralt searches for and finds the components he needs to have the armor reforged.
  • If you do not collect your armor in Chapter V before you meet your ally by the boat at the Old Manor pier (which leads to the Epilogue), the Armor Quest is removed from the quest list and cannot be completed.

Phases[edit | edit source]

Raven's Armor[edit | edit source]

I'm intrigued by the story of the armor worn by the witcher named Raven. Berengar claims that it's in Raven's tomb, but no one knows where the witcher was buried. Berengar suggested I talk to the blacksmith and the elven craftsman. They know the legend, too. Berengar suggested that I talk to both the blacksmith and the elven craftsman about Raven's armor.

The De Ruyter Dynasty[edit | edit source]

They say the counts of the De Ruyter dynasty had suits of armor fashioned by gnome craftsmen. If I can find the tomb of one of the counts, I might be able to find a piece of their armor. I need to find a piece of gnome-fashioned armor.

Pieces of Armor[edit | edit source]

I found a piece of Graf Ruyter's armor. I still need what remains of Raven's armor and the notes of an elven minstrel. I need to find the notes of an elven minstrel and what remains of Raven's armor.
