Manticore Armor only becomes available when you are playing in New Game+, so you'll need to get to a second playthrough before you focus on getting this armor. While crafting the set requires some rare ingredients, the most crucial element is the crafting diagram found in the quest Scavenger Hunt: Grandmaster Manticore Gear. This quest is found in the Blood and Wine expansion and can be started by speaking to Lazare Lafargue.
