V Rising: How to Choose the Best Base Location

V Rising is here, and there are a lot of things you need to prepare, such as planning where to build your base.




In V Rising, you’re a vampire who hates the sunlight to the core. The game allows you to build your own castle, which acts as not only your base of operations but also your abode against the life-threatening rays of the sun.

You may also store your possessions in these strongholds. Building a base may seem easy, so to speak, but various in-game factors will influence your decision.

How To Pick The Best Base Location For You In V Rising

In building your first castle, you must first do some exploration in the open world. But that’s too time-consuming! As previously said, there are several variables to consider before jumping to a conclusion.

First, you must choose a location you can defend from several threats – be it monsters or other players wanting to ransack your castle. Check the terrains and the elevations and use them to your advantage.

Second, you must consider the resources you can loot from nearby dungeons and areas. As you can see, you’ll be needing a lot of these raw materials as you progress in the game.

To help you narrow down your choices, we’ll give you the pros and cons of some regions so that you can make an informed decision on where to build your base.

Starter Zone


  • safe and familiar
  • players won’t expect you to build a base in specific locations


  • far from resources
  • there are probably many players who are thinking the same as you

Silverlight Hills


  • Silver, an important late-game material, can only be mined here; so this is ideal if you want to start preparing early
  • You can capture the best slaves, thralls, or servants in this domain; they possess strong abilities


  • not suitable for beginner

Cursed Forest


  • you’ll never run out of iron
  • you can farm for a lot of mats like hide and mushrooms
  • one of the best farming spots in the game
  • geared towards the long run


  • since Silverlight Hills is on the other side of the map, you’re basically cut from farming silver if you stay here

Dunley Farmlands


  • Ideal central location
  • you can farm for iron, quartz, and cotton
  • has access to both Silverlight Hills and Cursed Forest
  • Since it’s near the Starter Zone, you can access the quests easily
  • you can access the Haunted Iron Mine
  • You can farm Glass, Quartz, Mourning Lilly and Scrolls from the Dunley Monastery


  • You might be an easy target for enemies because of the location

Fastest Easy Ways To Unlock BUSO HAKI V3 In Pixel Piece

Make it fast and easy by reading this guide!

Doben Villaruz



Some of us who enjoy playing video games are also fans of anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, and they’re very popular right now because they not only have a TV show but are also featured in various games using mods and occasionally fan-made games. I know that some of you haven’t yet acquired the Buso Haki, but if you want to do so much faster than everyone else, then this guide is just for you.

Buso Haki V3

For those who are new to the game and are unaware of this process, you must wait until nighttime (in-game) because you’ll be entering the Vaill Island, where you must first reach Level 70+ because you won’t likely survive if you don’t level up. You’ll also need $5000 in order to activate a quest from an NPC in that island.

So when you get to Valli Island, you’ll run into an NPC wearing a hat who will give you a mission that requires you to pay $5000. Once you do so, a new objective with the words “Battle 4 Ancient Gorilla of 0/3” appears up on the bottom right of your screen. At that point, you must defeat the Gorilla Boss.

The boss gorilla must be found and defeated three times; he deals a lot of damage when he pounds the ground and hits you with his shockwave fist, thus having teammates who are at the same level as you or who are strong enough to defeat the gorilla will actually speed up the battle.

It is actually recommended to find the respawn point every so often to make your life easier. When you get to the part where the gorilla is, you need to do this so that when you die, you won’t have to go to a random island and it will be a hassle to navigate through the world again just to find one island and beat the Gorilla boss.

The Quest pop-up that was mentioned to you earlier on screen states that you should defeat the Gorilla boss at least three times. Once you defeat the Gorilla boss, you will level up, receive an item called “Soul of Armament,” and learn the skill Armament Haki.

When the Gorilla boss dies, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you will need to defeat him again until you finally defeat him on the third try.

Now that we have defeated the gorilla boss, let’s discuss the advantages of wearing these hakis. The Haki V1 will increase your melee/sword M1 damage by +6 and give you the ability to hit Logia users.

However, 50,000 Haki Mastery points are required to upgrade your Haki to V2. What does V2 offer in terms of benefits? You receive +9 more melee/sword damage than the Haki V1 with it.

And ultimately, of course, in order to truly unlock Buso Haki V3, you actually need 200,000 Haki Mastery points. The advantages of possessing this are that it increases your melee/sword damage by +14 compared to Haki V2, making it currently the strongest in the game.

It takes a lot of grinding to get to the 200,000 Haki point need, but there is an easier way to farm the points for V3. To do this, make sure you have reached Level 100; if not, continuing farming in the world you are currently in until you are powerful enough to reach the island where we’re going to farm the points faster.

You must travel to Syrup Island, which is between Vaill Island’s northeast and east. Once there, you’ll see a lot of players grinding against NPCs to gain Haki Mastery points more quickly.

You may have heard that you should grind straight to Arlo Park, but doing so will only slow you down because the NPCs there are much tougher than those in Syrup Island.

However, if you want to go for it and you have pals who can fight with the NPCs in Arlo Park, feel free to do so.


I hope this was of some help. A tremendous thank you to Nikkolapz for going over each of these details and explaining them so thoroughly. For better understanding check out his video:
