V Rising: Glass Guide

This is our complete V Rising: Glass Guide.

Players have been enjoying the fun survival aspects of V Rising. The idea of taking out enemies as a vampire all the while creating your own castle and empire has been a huge hit. But, if you’re going to conquer the world of V Rising, you’ll need various items such as weapons, precious metal, and sometimes glass. In this guide, we’ll be having a look at glass in V Rising 

Use of Glass in V Rising? 

Surprisingly, getting glass is harder than you would expect. It is one of those items you won’t need until you’re far into the game. But first, let’s look at what you might need it for. 

There are primarily two uses of glass in V Rising. You can use it to create windows for your castle or to craft empty glass bottles. 

The first use is mainly decorative. Building castles is a major part of V Rising and if you want to create something aesthetically pleasing, then using glass windows is the way to go. There are other decorative items as well in V Rising which require glass.

The second use of glass is to create glass bottles. These bottles are then used in crafting and storing various potions, such as the silver resistance potion. Unfortunately, they’re not reusable yet, so if you’re trying to create a new potion, you’ll need a new empty bottle. Therefore, if you’re the type of player to use a lot of potions, you’ll need a good amount of glass for the bottles. 

Crafting Glass in V Rising

Unfortunately, you cannot start crafting glass right from the get-go. You need to unlock the recipe for glass which is held by a powerful enemy in V Rising.

The enemy in question is the V Blood enemy Christina the Sun Priestess. As she is a level 44 enemy, don’t expect to be able to challenge her early in the game. You can sometimes find her to the northwest of Dawnbreak Village. However, her location is not fixed. You can sometimes find her roaming around the roads between Dawnbreak and Mosswick. 

Ideally, you want to fight her near Dawnbreak as in the other areas, she will get surrounded by other enemies that can give you a tough time. A great way to take her down is to use long-range attacks alongside various defensive/evasive abilities. 

Once you take her down, you will be awarded the Glass Recipe, Empty Glass Bottle Recipe, Purgatory Power, Holy Resistance Potion recipe, and Blood Rose Potion Recipe. 

After getting the recipe, you will need to use your furnace. If you don’t have one, you need to create Castle Heart. After that, you can craft a furnace using 480 stone and 60 copper ores.

Once you have the recipe and a furnace, all you’ll need are quartz. 20 quartz will equate to 1 pane of glass. That’s not a lot of glass compared to the amount of quartz, and eventually, you’ll run out. But don’t worry; we’ll briefly touch on how you can get more quartz as well.

Quartz in V Rising can be found in nodes spread across the map. You will have a higher chance of finding these nodes in the Dunley Farmlands. You can get up to 40-50 quartz through each node.

The alternate method to these nodes is going to the Dunley Monastery and taking out the enemies there. There will be a small army of level 50+ enemies that can drop you a good amount of quartz. You can also find more nodes of quartz behind the church and near the front of the area. 

Unfortunately, you will need a bunch of Holy Resistance Potions to enter and survive in that area. Therefore, you should combine both the node and enemy farming methods. While you wait for the nodes to respawn, you can defeat the enemies and vice versa.  


With that, you know everything about glass in V Rising. It is certainly a necessity as potions are a huge part of the game and without glass, you cannot make those game-changing potions. 

Not played V Rising yet? It can be found on Steam for a pretty cheap price! Keep in mind that it’s still early access, so it’s not a fully complete game.
