Witcher 3 Netflix armour: How to unlock Henry Cavill’s armour in The Witcher 3 next-gen update
THE Witcher 3 next-gen update is available now for free on all platforms if you own the original game.
Aside from all of the graphical updates, fans are most excited for an added quest that gives you Henry Cavill’s armour from the Netflix show.
The quest is quite long and it can be difficult to figure out everything you need to do.
This is how you can get the Netflix armour in The Witcher 3 next-gen update.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update: Starting in the eternal fire’s shadow
You will start the quest in The Devil’s pit, a large mine that you can explore the surface of.
It’s located to the east of Hanged Man’s Tree in Velen. Follow the path to the entrance, and a Priest of the Eternal Fire can be found outside.
The priest will give you the quest, and it’s time to explore the pit itself.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update: Exploring The Devil’s Pit
Make your way to the bottom floor and you will find some double doors against the back wall.
Here you can find several Greater Glyph of Yrden, which you might need for the upcoming fight. You’ll also need celandine before starting.
You’ll hear a ghostly voice asking for help. Use your Witcher Senses to identify markings and find the right direction to go in.
At the bottom of a broken set of stairs the voice will tell you to turn right, but instead you should go straight ahead.
Blow up the walls with the Aard, and interact with the Plague Victim up ahead.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update: Crafting Reinald’s potion
After you defeat some Plague Victims, use the broken cart at the back of the room as a platform to jump over the wall.
In here is a note from Reinald teaching you how to craft a special potion. You should make this now.
Keep moving through the caves, and eventually, you will come across a set of double doors with a note attached. This is the final area.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update: How to free Reinald
Reinald can be found at the back of this room stuck inside a series of stalagmites. You can free him by using the Aard sign on him.
He will then ask for the potion you’ve crafted. However, this is a trap. Drink the potion instead and prepare for battle.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update: How to defeat Reinald and the Red Miasmal
This is a two-phase boss fight against another Witcher, so you will likely have to dodge after you land each attack.
Put a shield up with Quen and dodge as often as possible. If he creates a red shield, don’t attack or you will be countered.
Hit Reinald with two quick strikes after you dodge one of his attacks. Then use Igni on him, and follow that up with two more quick attacks.
Once he is down to one-third of his health, combine Yrden with Aard to force the Red Miasmal from his body.
This will warp around the arena quickly, and summon more Plague Victims. It also has a big health bar.
It does telegraph its attacks though making them easier to dodge. Yrden will also power up the strength of your attacks.
Keep up the pressure, and you’ll be able to take both down.
The Witcher 3 next-gen update: In The Eternal Fire’s Shadow epilogue
After the fight, talk to Reinald and he will tell you about his armour. You can then fetch the priest who gave you the quest and you will have to mediate the conversation.
Once complete, you’ll be given a new gear quest that will allow you to craft the Netflix armour.
