Navigating your way out of the harsh conditions in V Rising can be tough for beginners. There are always certain tips that you wish you would’ve known early on in a game. While the sentiment is rather similar in V Rising, there are still some things to be done. 

You will need to gather every kind of tool possible in order to make the extracting process simpler. Consequently, basic minerals like Copper and Iron are a must, since they will be supporting you through every portion of the game. 

Needless to say, the resources aren’t only limited to crafting materials. Rather, it includes weapons, armor, and general skills as well. 

In this article, we will be taking a deeper dive into the best resources and abilities to obtain as a beginner in the harsh world of V Rising. With that said, let’s jump in and get started!

Utilizing Sunlight and Shade

While the sunlight might seem to weaken your Vampire, it’s the safest time of the day in general. Therefore, you get the chance to work on what you want without anyone disturbing you. 

For example, you might be trying to upgrade or change the layout of your castle –  or you could be looking to craft gear for yourself without having to worry about invasions. The sunlight is the perfect time for all of this. 

Deploying Stations

Much like any ARPG, the crafting time for a tool increases the later you go into the game. While you could be stuck to one production station for the rest of your journey, it’s generally recommended that you invest a decent bit to get as many stations running as vampirically possible.

Since more production equals faster in-game progression, you will find your investment reaching break-even sooner than you might think.  

Hoarding Copper

Copper is a material in V Rising that features many uses from the early to late game. While the most prominent ones are copper-based weapons and tools, you can go long way if you procure a sizable amount of them from early onwards. 

This is because most of the early building materials require copper in one way or another. Therefore, having it when needed can reduce the unnecessary farming time that might incur otherwise. 

Follow Blood Trails

V Bloods are your best friend when it comes to unlocking new recipes and gear. They not only make you stronger, by helping you progress but also remain relevant for the majority of V Rising. If you feel stuck at a certain portion of the early game, then chances are that you’ve got some missing blood trails. 

This benefit can also be shared with your clansmen with the help of the consuming mechanic present in-game. While the potency might differ a bit, you will essentially be gaining the same amount of strength as if performed solo. 

Focus on Your Equipment

It mostly goes without saying, but you will be needing all the equipment you can get in order to perform your best in any scenario. There are certain weapons and armors that tend to perform better than the rest. 

Consequently, you might also be looking at certain extraction tools like the bone mace and vice versa in order to extract basic necessities like Iron, Wood, and Copper. Therefore, your equipment holds true value when it comes to influencing your V Rising experience. 


All in all, there is a multitude of factors and resources to look out for in V Rising. However, the mentioned resources generally tend to take the cake when it comes to the necessity and need of hoarding. With that being said, these resources should ensure a smooth early game vampiric journey for you.
