V Rising: Types of Blood | Blood Quality Guide
Blood Type is a key feature in V Rising, as it determines the buffs and other perks you can get when consuming blood. It’s worth noting that each Blood Type has its own unique features and advantages over the others.
Compared to other games, there is no class system in V Rising. However, it does have a mechanic that functions almost the same, save for a few unique differences. This is none other than the Blood Type and the Blood Quality system.
Basically, with this mechanic in place, you’ll be able to assume a specific “class” depending on the Blood Type you consume. Since Blood is a vital resource in the game, you’ll want to properly plan which type of blood you want to consume from humans and animals depending on the situation.
Let’s take a deeper look at the Blood Type and Blood Quality system to find out how you can use it fully to your advantage.
Types of Blood and Blood Quality Guide in V Rising
The basics behind obtaining blood are quite simple. You just have to come close to a living being and feed on it using the F key. This will start a feeding animation where you suck the blood out of that creature. As soon as the animation is finished, that creature will die and you’ll receive its Blood Type.
Now, each Blood Type has 5 different tiers, and the number of tiers you can get as a bonus will depend on the creature’s Blood Quality. The higher its Blood Quality, the more perks you can unlock which, in turn, makes you even more powerful.
This maxes out at 100%. You also want to keep in mind that the value is random and will vary from one creature to another.
If you want to obtain a specific Blood Type, you’ll want to hover your cursor on a creature first to check its Blood Type. For example, archers will most likely have the Rogue Blood Type whereas soldiers will likely have the Warrior Blood Type.
You can also see its Blood Quality while doing so, thus allowing you to carefully choose which type of creature to feed on.
Once you have finished feeding on your target, you’ll then be able to check the Blood Type’s attributes as well as its Quality in the Blood Pool. This is the round tank of blood located at the bottom center of your screen. Simply hover over the pool to check the relevant stats.
Another thing you want to keep in mind is that if you feed on another living being with a different Blood Type, it will override your current one.
Different Blood Types in the Game
Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s now move on to the different types of blood in the game. There are a total of 7 Blood Types in the game. They’re as follows:
The default Blood Type, this one offers zero benefits, so make sure to avoid this at all costs. You can only get this Blood Type once you die or eat a rat.
The Creature Blood Type can be obtained by feeding on animals you encounter in the wild. They can be anything from deers and wolves to bears and more. It’s quite useful if you want to traverse the world of Vardoran quickly as it gives a boost to your movement speed.
Not only that, but it also offers damage reduction, health regeneration, and an overall increase in all effects given by this blood type.
You can obtain this by feeding on assassins, archers, poachers, and trappers. This Blood Type is perfect if you want to adopt a quick and aggressive playstyle. It even increases your critical chance, making it the closest thing to Assassin classes in other games.
The Warrior Blood Type is more about a defensive playstyle, but it does offer you some decent damage bonuses too. It’s perfect if you want to get up close and personal using melee weapons. It also increases your Weapon skills cooldown and even gives you a chance to parry attacks.
If you want access to life leech and prefer a decent balance between damage and survivability, then the Brute Blood Type is perfect. You can even heal back any damage you take with a higher Blood Quality and even heal a percentage of your health whenever you kill an enemy.
This is the perfect Blood Type if you want to focus mainly on spells. It can even provide significant boosts to all abilities as well as your ultimates. At Tier 4, you even get a 20% chance to reset spell cooldown when casting, making it extremely powerful if you used it properly. It even adds decent survivability by providing a good amount of spell life leech.
If you plan to focus on farming materials, then the Worker Blood Type is your go-to option. It’s not a combat-oriented Blood Type by any means, so make sure to avoid enemies as much as possible if you have this Blood Type.
Specifically, this Blood Type lets you harvest resources quickly, increase the amount of resources you can get, and even gives you a chance to instantly destroy a resource.
Which Blood Type to Use
The Blood Type you’ll want to use will ultimately depend on your current situation. For example, if you want a melee-focused playstyle, then either the Rogue, Warrior, or Brute will suit you best. Meanwhile, if you want to focus on spells, then the Scholar is no doubt the best choice.
The only type you’ll want to avoid is the Frailed Blood Type as it doesn’t have anything to offer. Also, you’ll want to keep in mind that you’ll need a 100% Blood Quality if you want to access all 5 Tiers of your chosen Blood Type.
Since the maximum quality for Tier 4 goes up to 99%, looking for a perfect Blood Quality will take a little bit of time. However, if you can manage to find one, you’ll be able to get a 30% boost to all other perks in the lower tiers of that given Blood Type.
Another exciting mechanic is the Blood Moon which has a small chance of occurring. This event will grant you a 10% increase in your movement speed and a 20% boost in your Blood Type’s effects.
