While the Armor quest begins in Chapter 4 it can only be completed in Chapter 5. It begins when you speak with Berengar outside the Crypt at the Lakeside. The paths that you need to take to complete the armor set are different depending on whether you are neutral, aligned with the Scoia’tael or with the Order.
If you’ve remained neutral throughout the game speak with Triss in the castle and she’ll recommend that you speak with Kalkstein about the armor. Before speaking with him kill the Mutant at the mage tower in the swamp and he’ll return to his laboratory. Meet with him there and he’ll tell you that he can make the armor if you give him a Piece of Armor, the Remains of Raven’s Armor, a Magic Formula and the Notes of an Elven Minstrel.
If you side with the non-humans Zoltan Chivay will tell you to speak with the Dwarven Blacksmith at the forge. The Blacksmith will tell you that he can forge the armor if he has a Piece of Armor, Remains of Raven’s Armor, the Notes of an Elven Minstrel and a Bifunctional Fiber and Alloy Recirculator.
If you’re allied with the Order of the Flaming Rose speak with the Order Armorer at the forge. He will need a number of items to complete the armor. These include a Piece of Armor, the Remains of Raven’s Armor, the Notes of an Elven Minstrel and St. Gregory’s Litany.
Location of Items
You’ll need to progress to Chapter 5 in order to find all of the items except for the Piece of Armor which can be found in both Chapter 4 and Chapter 5.
Piece of Armor – in the Crypt in the Lakeside (Chapter 4) or in Raven’s Crypt in the Swamp Cemetery (Chapter 5).
Notes of an Elven Minstrel – in the Chapel in the Swamp Cemetery.
Remains of Raven’s Armor – in Raven’s Crypt in the Swamp Cemetery.
Bifunctional Fiber and Alloy Recirculator (Scoia’tael) – in the Crypt that connects to the Mine in the Swamp Cemetery.
Magical Formula (Neutral) – in the Crypt connected to the Southern Refugees Cave in the Swamp Cemetery.

Take the four items back to the blacksmith that you’re associated with to receive your special version of Raven’s Armor. You’ll also receive 14,000 experience points for your trouble.
