There are two elements of the Viper School gear. Both schematics can be acquired whilst visiting White Orchard for the first time. These are the most primitive schematics and they are related only to swords (steel and silver). Nevertheless, it is worth to get them as at this moment they will greatly upgrade your blades and enhance them with a random poisoning chance.
Viper Silver Sword
Location: White Orchard Cemetery, inside the crypt
Required level: 2
Silver sword schematic can be found in the crypt located on the White Orchard Cemetery which can be found in the northern part of the map and it is guarded by a Wraith on the seventh level. You can either run your way through/around him or simply fight him. In the latter case, use dodge often and help yourself with Yrden.
Approach the crypt and destroy its wooden door. Inside you will find another wraith waiting for you. Lure him outside or fight him. Once you deal with it, find Kolgrim's corpse (to the right of the entrance) and examine it to acquire the silver sword schematic.
