This page shows how to get the best early game weapons and armor obtainable in the game The Witcher 3. Read on to learn requirements for getting the best early game weapons and armor at the beginning of the game.
List of Contents
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.
You can purchase the Novigrad Longsword from the Blacksmith at Heirarch Square inside the Novigrad Region. It has excellent stats for a very cheap price, and it only has a level 4 requirement.
If you want to learn how to make money quickly to purchase these items and unlock Novigrad, check the link below.

The merchant DOES NOT have ANY armor for sale.
So one of the first merchants you ever encounter during the game actually has one of the best armors early game? I never knew the Temerian armor was pretty good.
