The Witcher 3 Feline Armor Locations “Cat School Gear” Guide

All Feline Armor Diagrams that you will need for crafting.

The Cat School Gear, also known as the Feline School Gear, is a lightweight armor set in The Witcher 3 that focuses on movement speed, increased stamina, and fast attacks.

Hailing from the School of the Cat in the Witcher lore, the Feline set gives Geralt the agility of a cat to move in and out of combat for quick attacks instead of power. This means there is little protection from the armor set, and Geralt must rely on its agility to dodge enemy attacks.

This guide will tell you how to start the Scavenger Hunt for the Cat School Gear and where to find all its diagrams.

How to start Scavenger Hunt: Cat School Gear

Like the rest of the Scavenger Hunts, you can automatically start the side quest by finding one of the Feline diagrams mentioned below.

You can also find Julia Keynon’s diary in Farcorners, the southern district of Novigrad, to start the hunt. The diary is located in one of the houses west of the Portside Gate.

Third and last, you can purchase a map fragment of the basic Feline School Gear to begin the Scavenger Hunt. Head to Blackbough village, west of Crow’s Perch in Velen, and find the Gwent-playing merchant. He will sell you “Adalbert Kermith’s first map” to get you started.

Basic Feline Armor Diagrams location

This is the first Feline Armor set in The Witcher 3, whose diagrams you need to find for crafting. It has all the armor pieces like the other school armor set with the addition of a Crossbow. Below, you will find all the locations where you can find its diagrams and then craft it by visiting the blacksmith.

Basic Feline Armor Set

The Cat School armor set diagrams are in the Temple Isle in Novigrad, next to the Electors’ Square. To find the section of the area, you must first find a hidden cave.

If you move alongside the cliff, keeping the ocean to your right, you will find a path leading off it. Head down the switchback path till you reach a dead end. There is an illusion here that hides the entrance to the cave.

Now, you must use the Eye of Nehaleni, given to Geralt by Keira Metz in the “Wandering in the Dark” main quest. This amulet can be used to dispel illusions. Use it at the end of the path to reveal the entrance to the cave.

As he enters the cave, the door right in front of Geralt is where the armor set diagrams are located, but it will be locked. The key to open the cave lies ahead of the path to the left. If you take the path to the left, you will reach a circular area with a few statues.

Each statue has a lever that rotates the statues if interacted with. You must use the levers and rotate the statues to face the center. Once that’s done, a pool at the center with the key will be revealed. This is the key that you will use to open the locked door you found earlier.

Head back over to the door and use the key to unlock it. Take out Mad Kiyan inside, and you can loot the Feline armor set from his body.
