Viper School Witcher Gear is an addition that crops up in certain places in the game – the standard weapons at the very beginning of the base game, and the armour and venomous weapons at specific points in Hearts of Stone.
These are required levels for crafting Witcher gear items.
Small quests like these in Toussaint are good for free Dimertitium Ingots, Orichalcum Ore and other rare crafting items that contribute to your Grandmaster Gear builds.

Crafting Grandmaster Armour of any kind takes a lot of expensive resources. In particular Enriched Dimeritium Ingots and Enriched Dimeritium Plate. If you buy them directly from Lazare Lafargue they will be more than double the cost of if you crafted them yourself, so craft your own beforehand.
