V Rising Silver Explained
We’ve put together a quick guide on how Silver works in V Rising.
Most players will probably first encounter silver in its coin form – with interesting results. Upon first touching silver coins, players can find themselves at the end of a divine punishment as the resource deals aggressive damage equal to its weight. Luckily, vampires don’t have to suffer while carrying currency forever.
Here’s what you need to know about silver, its uses, and how to avoid its wrath.
Players can pick up silver coins from any settlement in any container. They’re usually found in chests, but some have reported getting them from barrels, crates, and more.
Shard Coins cause what is known as “Silver Sickness”. The silver itself deals damage to the player in direct relation to the amount of silver they are carrying. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t carry it around at all.
Players can either drink a Silver Resistance Potion or Brew to negate the effects of Silver Disease, which we have listed the recipes for:
To craft a Silver Resistance Potion, players will need the following items:
To craft a Silver Resistance Brew, you’ll need these items instead:
However, in order to use the silver coins, they need a unique V-Blood ability, which is obtained by defeating Beatrice the Traitor: human form transformation.
With both the potions and the new form, players can successfully impersonate a normal human and spend their silver coins at merchants. Silver coins give them access to special items like equipment, consumables and more that they couldn’t craft themselves in their castle.
How else would silver coins be made without silver ore? Players can mine silver ore from silver ore deposits scattered across a few select areas in the Silverlight Hills. However, it will inflict the same silver disease on its bearers found in coin form.
It is recommended that players carry no more than they can handle and move quickly from node areas to their base. They may also want to lock their silver in vampire lock boxes for maximum security.
