V Rising Blood Types Guide

May 17, 2022

As you’d expect from a game about vampires, blood plays an important part in V Rising. You must think about which victims to suck blood from, with the types of blood each relating to different play styles. In our V Rising Blood Types Guide, we’ll go over the basics of blood, and the bonuses you’ll be able to get.

Blood Type Basics

Obtaining blood in V Rising is simple enough, simply requiring you to lower a living being (that’s not a boss) to low health. From there, pressing Feed (default F key) will start a lengthy feeding animation. Finishing this will grant you the blood type of that NPC, while also killing them.

 

When you obtain a blood type, it will also be of a certain quality — this can be viewed by hovering the mouse over an enemy. Blood quality determines the number of bonus effects activated, along with their potency. This value maxes out at 100%, and is completely random (i.e. two wolves of the same level can have wildly different blood quality). Blood type and blood quality is replaced when feeding on a new NPC.

Blood quality bonuses are split into five tiers, with the last one always granting a 30% boost to the previous tiers. The unlock requirement for these tiers are:

 
 
  • I: Always active on all non-Frailed blood types
  • II: 30% blood quality or higher
  • III: 60% blood quality or higher
  • IV: 90% blood quality or higher
  • V: 100% blood quality

The bonuses given also increase in effectiveness as your blood quality increases. So, even though you gain the II bonus at 30% quality, you don’t get the full effect unless you’re at 100%.

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Frailed

The default blood when starting a new character, respawning after dying, or when using a heart or rat consumable item. Frailed offers no extra bonuses, though you still have a blood pool that can be used for healing. There’s no reason to keep the Frailed blood type for long.

 
 

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Creature

The Creature blood type is generally the easiest to obtain (outside of Frailed at least), and can be taken from the various wildlife roaming the map. Unlike the variety of blood types that are available from human NPCs, all animals give the same Creature blood type.

Creature is useful for map traversal, as it gives you a boost to movement speeds even at low quality. Damage reduction can be nice for extra survivability, but for combat you’d be better served picking the non-Worker blood types.

Creature Blood Quality Bonuses

  • I: 3%-15% Movement Speed
  • II: 10-25 increased Sun Resistance rating
  • III: 10%-20% Damage Reduction
  • IV: 150% increased Health Regeneration
  • V: Boost all above effects by 30%

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Rogue

The Rogue Blood type is the perfect blood type for a quick, aggressive playstyle. It allows you to get in close to opponents, while also gaining a higher chance to crit. Great when paired with the movement abilities of Slasher weapons.

Rogue Blood Quality Bonuses

  • I: 10%-20% chance to Critical Strike on Weapon Attacks
  • II: 8%-15% Movement Speed
  • III: 12%-25% Reduced cooldown on Travel Skill. 100% chance to Critical Strike on next physical attack after using a travel skill
  • IV: 50% chance on Critical Strike to expose victims armor, increasing damage taken from all sources by 15% for 4s
  • V: Boost all above effects by 30%

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Warrior

The Warrior Blood type favours defensive playstyles, though you still gain some damage buffs. Helpful when using slower, close-range weapons like Maces, along with shield abilities.

 
 

Warrior Blood Quality Bonuses

  • I: 10%-20% increased Physical Power
  • II: 8%-15% reduced cooldown on Weapon Skills
  • III: 7.5%-15% reduced damage taken and 25% increased damage when striking enemies at full health
  • IV: 15% chance to parry an attack, reducing damage taken by 50%. Parrying an attack increases your own damage by 25%
  • V: Boost all above effects by 30%

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Brute

The Brute Blood type features a good mix of survivability and damage. At high blood quality, it’s possible to heal back any damage taken, buffing damage along the way. Can be stacked with the Veil of Blood travel ability for even more healing.

Brute Blood Quality Bonuses

  • I: 7.5%-12.5% primary attack Life Leech
  • II: 7.5%-15% increased Primary Attack Speed, gain 1 Gear Level
  • III: healing received increased by 20%-35%. Heal self for 4% of your victim’s health when striking a killing blow
  • IV: 6% chance per relative health recovered to boost movement speed by 20% and damage of primary attacks by 25%
  • V: Boost all above effects by 30%

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Scholar

Unlike the other human blood types, the Scholar Blood type is entirely focused on spells. Affects all abilities, and can make ultimates even more deadly. Being able to reset spells at high blood quality is a potent effect, allowing for spell spam if lucky enough.

Scholar Blood Quality Bonuses

  • I: 12%-25% increased Spell Power
  • II: 8%-15% reduced cooldown on spells
  • III: 5%-10% spell Life Leech
  • IV: 20% chance to reset spell cooldown on cast
  • V: Boost all above effects by 30%

V Rising Blood Types Guide - Worker

Obtained primarily from miners and non-aggressive humans, the Worker Blood type is perfect if you’re planning to farm lots of materials. Since none of the bonuses relate to combat in any way, you want to stay away from enemies while using this blood type.

Scholar Blood Quality Bonuses

  • I: 10%-30% increased Resource yield
  • II: 15%-25% increased damage against resource objects
  • III: 10%-20% increased mount Gallop Speed
  • IV: 3% chance to instantly destroy a resource
  • V: Boost all above effects by 30%
