There are no premade character classes in V Rising, contrary to what you regularly see in most games. Instead, players are given the opportunity to make unorthodox builds through the many available weapons and abilities.
In fact, one of the most loved builds consists of a somewhat edgy weapon: the Slasher.
Best Slashers Build Guide in V Rising
Slasher builds are basically similar to what you would usually refer to as a Rogue class. Since there is no class system in the game, you will have to make do with your Blood Type, which depends on the blood you consume from humans.
The slasher build utilizes various factors. This guide will teach you the best gear, weapon and magic abilities, and blood type for the Slasher build.
Building a Slasher
Slasher Builds focus primarily on speed and stealth to inflict damage on enemies. When it comes to gear, choose between these two recommended amulets:
- Sapphire Pendant
- Topaz Amulet (more recommended for physical damage)
The Slasher Build has three abilities that are unlocked when upgrading the weapon. This build will heavily rely on these three skills:
- Primary Attack (basic attack)
- Slasher Skill – Elusive Strike (unlocked when you have a Copper Slasher or higher tier)
- Camouflage (unlocked when you have an Iron Slasher or higher tier)
For your Blood Type, it is highly recommended to level it up to the high quality as soon as possible. Reaching level 5 of blood quality will give you a 30% bonus on all your blood abilities. The Rogue class is best used for this build.
When it comes to your Magic Abilities, the following skills are recommended:
- Veil of Chaos – This is a dashing ability that you will use to move around or get away from enemies
- Veil of Illusion – Use this ability to dash to an area while leaving an illusion to the previous spot
- Unstable Mosquito – This allows you to summons a mosquito that will chase an enemy and explode
- Purgatory – You can call down a pillar of energy that slows enemies in an area and heals allies. After a few seconds, the pillar will explode and deal magic damage to enemies and provide more healing to allies.
- Heart Strike – You may dash forward and strike enemies in a line, dealing magic damage while healing yourself for a few seconds
Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide
Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!
Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms
Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.
While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.
Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.
Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.
Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.
You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.
Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.
Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.
In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.
Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.
Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
