    This achievement is finally available after Patch 1.11 has been installed. The solution is copied over from my xba guide.


    You can begin making progress on this achievement by speaking with the Ofieri Merchant located at the Upper Mill fast travel point in eastern Novigrad. Ask to take a peek at the man’s wares, and proceed to purchase the following items:

    + Decorated Saber - ~2500 crowns
    + Ofieri Blinders - 233 crowns
    + Ofieri Saddlebags - 233 crowns

    Back out of his inventory menu and comment on his horse. This will spark conversation and lead to the opportunity of racing the Merchant. Do so, and if you win you will receive an Ofieri Saddle. Now speak with the Merchant again and exhaust all of the dialogue options until Geralt mentions that he can recover the Merchant’s lost diagram pages. This will initiate the “From Ofier’s Distant Shores” quest. Tackle this quest however you’d like (take note that three of the four diagrams are located at campsites that you will be looting for the Wild Rose Dethorned achievement) and once you have collected all four diagrams, return to the Merchant, meditate for 24 hours, and then collect your reward: translated diagrams for Ofieri Boots, Gauntles, a Tunic, and Trousers.

    Now you will need to collect the necessary crafting materials before heading out to the Armorer in Crow's Perch to craft your four-piece gear set. Once it’s crafted, the achievement should unlock provided you have all 8 pieces of Ofieri Gear in the game.

    Bratticus182Easiest way is to just start the DLC and do this quest. It fixed the glitch for me

    Deadpool178I would add to go to the
    Quartermaster at Nilfgaardien Garrison in White Orchard as well as
    Willis the Armorer in Woesong Bridge in White Orchard
    to get the necessary dusts.

    Missing-a-diagram-in-a-chest glitch solution

    So as of today there's another glitch with this achievement in the latest (and most probably last) version released. As you already know if you have read the other guides, at some point you got to find diagrams in order to craft 4 pieces of armor.

    However many of us have come across a glitch that made one of the 4 diagrams unobtainable. Most of the time it's the one inside the chest of the bandits hideout which would just not be inside the chest, preventing you from looting it and crafting the corresponding piece of armor.

    If you come across this glitch, well you will never be able to get the diagram on your current save. It means you'll have to create a new game in the "Hearts of Stone only" mode and do the quest all over again. Don't worry, it takes like 30 minutes so that's not too bad.

    Respect this order to be sure not to glitch the quest one more time:

    1) Create new game "Hearts of Stone only" // you can go on easy no problem
    2) DON'T TALK TO THE OFIERI MERCHANT, directly go to the Zuetzer Castle and grab the first diagram there
    3) Now follow the quest instructions: go and talk to the merchant and grab the remaining diagrams then talk to him to end the corresponding quest
    4) After that, win a horse race against the merchant, and then buy everything ofieri-related he sells: the sword, the crossbow, the blinders, the tunic and the saddlebags // I think you don't need the tunic but who cares you have more than enough money for that and the crafting, and that's just a quick run to get this achievement anyway
    4) Do the Master Armorers quest in Crow's Perch so that Yoana can craft the pieces of armor from the diagrams

    Achievement should pop right after that as expected.
    Actually the only very important step you gotta do is to directly and find a diagram BEFORE talking to the merchant. Other than that you just have to follow the normal procedure.

    I'm not sure this solution will ever help someone, but after long googling to find a solution for this glitch, I found that many people had and still have this issue so here you go, and good luck on your path as they say

    thatNoseyParkerWell this royally sucks. But thanks for the “work around” - I’ll try it after completing everything else

    One thing I can say, if regarding the importance of getting diagrams before talking to the merchant - I did that originally in my glitched play through

    thatNoseyParkerI followed this and built everything but still no pop... really don’t want to try grind from 32 to 39 in order to equip the it

    Edit: I sold, rebought and then built some duplicates and I popped. I imagine it’s just the the rebuilding that did it though.

    BostonsmafiaDid this and still no achievement pop. How infuriating. Time to do it again.

    Edit: Did it twice and still nothing. Make sure to create a save right before crafting the equipment. I had to do a hard reset, reloaded the save, and it finally popped.

    "There is a bug in 1.10 version of the game. To complete this Achievement, you have to buy Saddlebags and Horse Blinders. They will be available for purchase from the Ofieri Merchant in the next patch."

    Information provided by GamePressure (, thanks to Hirogen D for pointing it out.

    The information is not 100% but knowing CD Projekt Reds previous issue with the Gwent Achievement, I'm sure we can expect a fix for this Achievement in the next Patch.

    Mazter0fPuppetzI tried collecting all the gear and created all of the armour and still no cheevo! angry

    CatmireI fucked up and sold my saddle so I started a new HoS campaign and put it on the easiest difficulty. Ran through and got the schematics and did the Master Armourer quest line. From start to finish it took about 2 hours. I did have to buy some ruby dust and chitinous shell crafting components but the base game gave me the funds to purchase and Joana had the supplies I needed so there was no material farm necessary. Achievement popped quick

    Beefboi1824I completed the base game before downloading any DLC, and I believe this bugged my savefile.

    The Wolven Witcher Gear (specifically the 4 armor pieces) are unobtainable, because Hieronymus' notes do not appear in the chest at the old signal tower in Kaer Morhen.

    Similarly, the Ofieri Gear (again, the 4 craftable armor pieces) and this achievement are unobtainable, because one of the diagrams does not appear in the underground bandit hideout. In order to get this achievement, I had to start a new game (HoS only) and redo everything. It did not take that long, but it was still frustrating and annoying.

    What a shame, despite being common and well-known, this atrocious bug has not, and probably will never, be patched :(
