Temerian Armor.jpg
The best early game armor can be purchased from the merchant in the first town at the beginning of the game, just west of Woesong Bridge in White Orchard. He is the same merchant you saved from the griffin after the tutorial. You can purchase the Temerian Armor Set from him, but it will require a large sum of money.

Novigrad Longsword

Yes the Temerian armor is a must have, not to mention the Temerian saddle, saddle bags & horse blinders. They're unique & can't be bought elsewhere. ...Plus, the Temerian armor pieces go great with Geralt's witcher armor, the "Kaer Morhen Armor" aka "Warrior's Leather Jacket". The Temerian set will carry amateur witchers all the way through to the end of the bloody baron quest line, easily.
