Walkthrough for Scavenger Hunt: Bear School Gear The Witcher 3

Begin the quests by obtaining a diagram piece. Locating any of the diagram pieces of the scavenger hunt in any order will activate the quest.

One way to get a heading is to purchase one of the maps from Ibrahim Saavi from Kaer Trolde's armorer. Otherwise, you can skip this step and follow the directions below. 

The first location will lead you to the Silver Sword Diagram. This will be in Fort Etnir in Skellige. it will be north of Rogne. You will need to clear the area first. Approaching the area will notify you of a guarded treasure marker. The area will have Gargoyle enemies and an Ice elemental enemy. Once they are cleared head into the room east. There should be a doorway opening from the outside. Loot the skeleton in the room for the knight Chalimir's letter and you will also have the first diagram for the silver sword. Read the letter and it will lead you to the next location in the hunt: Ruined Inn.

The Steel Sword diagram piece will be at the  Ruined Inn, southeast of the Fyresdal signpost. Here you will find the ruins of the building where you can use Aard on a pile of debris to gain access to the level below. This level may have Wraith enemies that you will need to clear just as you take the stairs down. Once the room is cleared, turn around towards the stairs and there should be another room you can enter which will contain Innkeep's notes and the Steel Sword Diagram. 

The scavenger hunt will then lead you to another location within Skellige. You will also have a new objective for the quest: Search the sirens' cave. This will lead you to the siren's cave location if you are tracking the quest. This will be near the Old Watchtower Signpost on an island. Travel to the cave and enter through the cave entrance. This will begin with one straight tunnel. As you enter, you may notice a higher ledge on your left. Head deeper into the cave until the ledge on the left is climbable then make your way back towards the entrance while on the ledge. You will eventually come across a skeleton corpse slumped against the cave wall. Loot the corpse to obtain the crossbow diagram and the Letter to Ingeborga Kalesdotter. 

After you pick up the diagram in the letter the quest will update. You will have a new objective and location. Your next location will be marked next to the Yngvar's Fang signpost, which is on an island far north of the island with Freya's garden and far east of the current cave located near the Old Watchtower signpost. Once you arrive, your objective is to search the ruins of Clan Tuirseach's castle. Make your way up the trail to the path along the mountain and watch out for the Siren enemies flying around in the area. As you make your way up, you will eventually come across a castle entrance. Enter through the wooden door. 

Be ready for an encounter with a few wraith enemies. Make your way down the staircase on the left. Make your way through the corridor full of cells and one of them will allow you to drop down a lower level. Follow the natural path and you will have a set of ledges you can climb that will lead back into a main room. You may need to use Aard to open up the pathway that will lead you to a room with a chest that will contain the final diagram pieces that you are looking for, 


Journal Entry:

 His efforts were rewarded: Geralt acquired diagrams for all the armor and weapons used by Bear School witchers. During his search he also learned of the fate of a witcher-adventurer named Gerd, the previous owner of this extraordinary set.
