Primary quests

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". Rumor has it, he was buried with his armor.

Walkthrough Edit

Armor Ravens Order
Armor Ravens 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:

Quest Items Armor fragment1 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.
Quest Items Notes elven minstrel

The notes of an elven minstrel, found in a sarcophagus in the Striga's crypt on the island in the swamp cemetery. The official Enhanced Edition guide indicates that this is "in one of the sarcophagi in the crypt in the Fields", but this is incorrect and there is no Quest Tracking or quest marker for this item in Chapter 4.

Quest Items Remain Ravens armor The remains of Raven's Armor, in Raven's sarcophagus in Raven's crypt.

Items Squirrel tail Raven's armor of the Elves additionally requires:

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

Logo Order of the Flaming Rose Raven's armor of the Order additionally requires:

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

Witcher medallion Raven's armor, as made by Kalkstein, requires:

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

Notes Edit

  • Despite being marked as a 'Primary quest', it is not necessary to complete this quest in order to finish the game.
  • 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 companion (Triss, Siegfried, or Yaevinn depending on the path you have chosen) 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.
  • It is important to note that after changing his armor, Geralt may drop any potions in his quickslots and a Trophy if he should have one. Not realizing could cause a player to potentially, although not actually, 'lose' a Trophy and consider it lost forever, ignoring the remainder of the quest. Not so, just recollect it and your potions after the switch.

Phases Edit

Raven's ArmorEdit

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.
