Best Armor and Weapon - Banner-min.jpg
This is a page on the Best Armors and Weapons in the game The Witcher 3. Read on to learn what are the best items you can equip with their effects in the game.

Witcher Gear Sets

Best Armor and Weapons - Witcher SetS.jpg
Witcher Gears are the best armor sets you can get in the game because of the additional set bonus provided once you are wearing all 6 of them. They can also be upgraded to the more-powerful Master versions, and you can push the upgrades up to Grandmaster if you have the Blood & Wine DLC.

Not only that, but they can be further improved by starting a New Game+ to unlock the Legendary version of the items, with even better stats. However, this will require you to start the game all over again and look for each diagram to make the Legendary armor available for crafting.
