The Undvik armor set is all about boosting your armor rating and defenses in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This is probably the last armor set that you will find in the base game, and it is fair to say that it has a certain visual appeal as well.
Also called the Skellige armor set, the Undvik armor set was added to The Witcher 3 as a free add-on DLC following its release. If you went ahead and purchased the game now for its next-gen update, know that the free armor sets will already be added to the base game.
However, that alone will not add the Undvik armor set to your inventory. You need to get it from a merchant.
The following guide will tell you how and where to get the Undvik armor set in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We will also tell you whether the investment in this pricey armor set is worth it.
Where to find the Undvik armor in The Witcher 3
Similar to the Temerian armor set, you cannot craft the Undvik armor set, and neither is there any quest associated with this particular armor set in The Witcher 3. You can only purchase the Undvik armor from the armorer in Kaer Trolde Citadel after hitting level 16. For the upgraded version of the Undvik armor set, in the base game or NG+, you will need to be at least level 41.
There are no crafting diagrams for the Undvik armor in TW3, so your only choices are to buy the level 16 version or level 41.
In short, there are two variants of this particular armor set, and you will need to reach the required levels above to obtain each of these during your playthrough.
When you reach Skellige and meet the aforementioned level requirement, make your way north to the Kaer Trolde Bridge from the Kaer Trolde Harbor. This is one of the first locations your main quest will take you to after reaching Skellige.
Cross the bridge to enter the fortress and take the first right. Head through the doorway, and you will find yourself in a little courtyard with an armorer who plays Gwent using a Northern Realms deck.
Speak with him to see what he is selling, and you will find the entire Skellige armor set in his shop. This is probably when you will realize that the Undvik armor set is a fairly expensive investment.
The Undvik armor will cost you around 3850 crowns to purchase all of the set pieces including the Undvik gear for Roach. Be at ease, though; there are plenty of quests to do in Skellige if you are short on gold.
If you still don’t want to pay for the set, you can always spawn the Undvik armor set using its console commands in The Witcher 3.
You can use the following console command to get the Undvik Armor in the base game or NG+ of The Witcher 3.
- For base game: additem(‘DLC14 Skellige Armor’), additem(‘DLC14 Skellige Pants’), additem(‘DLC14 Skellige Gloves’), additem(‘DLC14 Skellige Boots’).
- For the upgraded/NG+ version: additem(‘NGP DLC14 Skellige Armor’), additem(‘NGP DLC14 Skellige Pants’), additem(‘NGP DLC14 Skellige Gloves’), additem(‘NGP DLC14 Skellige Boots’).
How good is the Undvik armor set
The Undvik armor set provides excellent protection with a combined armor rating of 223. While wearing the Skellige armor, trousers, boots, and gauntlets, you will get a total of +55 percent resistance to piercing and bludgeoning damage, as well as +60 percent resistance to slashing damage and +15 percent resistance to monsters and elemental damage.
The one drawback of the Undvik armor set is that you will get a penalty for your stamina. This is a heavy armor set, after all, and it weighs a lot, so do not expect to move around as quickly as with a Feline armor set.
For your level 16 requirement, the Undvik armor set is going to be a good investment. However, the investment will not last forever. In the long run, the Ursine armor set proves to be a far better option than Undvik armor. It specifically has a higher resistance to monsters, which you are going to face a lot in the end-game, as well as the expansions. You will also get better adrenaline generation as a bonus.
