    There are four three Witcher gear sets, you need to complete one to get this Achievement. The Treasure hunt Quest can be started from picking up Notes, they can be looted from a Body or bought in a Shop (like in the Screenshot below), but you don’t need any Maps for Info you can start also the Quest if you pick up any part of the Gear. There is not first and last Item, you can get them in any Order. You need to build and equip the Gear to get the Achievement

    FullMoonBeaverThanks to the King fiShiZ I managed to find a blacksmith that would make the Griffin weapon set for me. That link was excellent.

    Goat Of God 101I too have the GOTY edition and it wasn't unlocking. I did what Kenetikxx but still nothing was happening. I went into my Settings > System > Storage and pressed "Clear local saved games" and it rebooted my console. When I restarted the game it downloaded all my saves from the cloud and it unlocked no problem. I also suspect that clearing your MAC address will also work but I couldn't test it. Anyway, hope this helps someone.

    Michal TMI had the same problem in GOTY - achievement didn't pop-up after wearing set.
    I didn't do anything you have mentioned and just play game in next quests.
    After 5 minutes during normal game achievement just popped. I didn't nothing special, just playing.

    The first set you are going to be able to complete is the Griffin Set. It is started above Blackbough at Lornruk in Velen. You need to find all 6 diagrams and then create them and equip them. For me the hardest components to get where the Monster Eyes which I found on enemies in the Bog and the Silver which I bought things from Vendors and Dismantled them.

    dylan is whiteI didn't know where to find Monster Eyes, so I looked at dismantling stuff because of deep the crafting is, and I learned that you can dismantle Nekker Eyes for Monster Eyes.
