Superior Bear School Gear
Unlike the previous sets, whose lower levels started in Velen and ended up in Skellige, the Bear School Gear starts in Skellige and ends up in Velen. The Superior Bear School Gear give a significant boost to defence, but stamina regeneration goes down. It also boosts adrenaline gain. Geralt needs to be level 26 to use the weapons and level 27 to wear the armour. The diagrams are spread across 3 locations in Velen.
Superior Ursine Silver Sword
Head to the Orphans Of Crookback Bog fast travel point and go south-west. After you’ve run through the mud you should come across an illusion. You can use your witcher sense to help you find it. You’ll need to have done the Wandering In The Dark main quest to get past it. When you remove the fake rocks, you can go inside a small cave. Turn right and you’ll find a chest containing the silver sword diagram.
Superior Ursine Steel Sword
This diagram is also near Crookback Bog. Go north-east to the fast travel point Ruined Tower. There will be a tough earth elemental lurking in the ruins. Kill it to get access to the chest in the corner of the ruins.
Superior Ursine Armour
All of the armour diagrams are in the one spot north-west of the Hanged Man’s Tree fast travel point (that’s the first place you go when you originally entered Velen). Just follow the path north and you should come across a cave surrounded by some old wooden structures. Go inside and keep to the left. You’ll eventually find the chest with the armour diagrams.
