4 Best V Rising Scales Farming Methods

V Rising is an open-world survival game that you can explore solo or with friends. The early reactions to V Rising have been good so far, reaching an all-time peak of 100,000+ concurrent players in Early Access. The game starts with you as a weakened Dracula as you need to hunt for Blood on nearby settlements to regain your strength. Scales are one of many items you can get for upgrading. In this guide of V Rising Scales, we will inform you of the locations to get Scales.

V Rising offers variety in gameplay, allowing the players to construct and decorate their castles where they can oversee their domain of darkness, lure their victims back to their castles and make them their minions. Players are even allowed to invade the castle of other players.

Fastest Methods To Farm Scales in V Rising

Scales are one of the crafting materials in V Rising, and they can be hard to get, but there are multiple ways to get scales in the game. Players can get them from chests, fishing, and they can even be dropped by enemies.

In this V Rising Scale guide, we will be explaining each of these methods in detail, and we would recommend stockpiling on these scales because they will be very useful in the late game. 

Fishing

One of the easiest ways to get Scales right now in the game is through fishing. But there’s no guarantee that you will get scales when you fish; you can get multiple items from fishing, such as recipes.

One other thing is that fishing spots are location-based, meaning there’s a chance that you won’t even get scales from some fishing spots. So be sure first to check the loot drop table before you start fishing on a certain fishing spot.

Now, this method can grant you some scales, but we would recommend only using this method if you’re having trouble with the other method.

Frogs

Scales are usually dropped from enemies, and The swamp is an ideal place to farm scales in V Rising. It is because enemies such as spiders and frogs drop scales, and both spiders and frogs wander in the swamps. There is also a Frog Boss in the Swamp Of Greeds, which can net you a bunch of scales.

Earthworms

The quickest method to earn scales in V Rising is by killing Earthworms. Earthworms give around 80-100 scales when killed. They drop the highest amount of Scales than anything else on this list, and they are relatively easy to kill. But the Earthworms are hard to find; they don’t have a specific place where they spawn. The Earthworms usually pop out of the ground in swamps.

Spider Cave

If you find the upper methods tedious and repetitive because of the respawn times, and you worry about being hunted by the lurkers, then one can consider farming from Spider Caves as the easiest method for getting Scales

One thing to consider is that if you are playing on a PvP server, then there is a boss in the spider cave, and there will be traffic in the cave. If you are on a PvE server, then the Spider Cave can easily be considered as one of the best areas to farm scales in V Rising.

One of the ways to get scales in the spider cave is you just provoke the exploding spiders. Since they are gonna explode anyway, you only need to provoke them to explode and worry about dodging the explosion. You don’t even have to fight these spiders, and when they explode, they drop ten scales

Best Strategy To Farm Scales in V Rising

Instead of focusing on only one of these methods, we would recommend switching between them from time to time so it does not feel tedious or repetitive. Switching between these methods should make the grind more bearable. If you do all of these Scale farming techniques, you should have ample V Rising Scales to upgrade your armors with ease.

How To Fish In V Rising

Fishing is used to collect different materials. Judging by the name, you may be hoping to obtain a fish if you decide to go fishing in V Rising but getting a fish is not always guaranteed. You can get other materials as well during fishing. Fish can further be used in other recipes or can be broken down into fish oils. Fishing is also a great way of obtaining special materials available in the region, such as Scourgestones and Copper Ingots.

In order to fish in V Rising, you need a fishing pole that can be crafted using planks, Copper Ingots, and Coarse Thread at the Woodworking Bench. There is only one type of fishing pole, and there are no baits. The Woodworking bench is unlocked after drinking the blood of Rufus The Foreman.

Rufus The Foreman is located at the Bandit Logging Camp near the Cave Passage.

Now that you have your fishing pole, you only need to open your map and go to a body of water. Once you have reached the body of water, look for a puddle.

After that, equip your fishing pole and place your cursor on the puddle and press the left mouse button. Once the puddle flashes, press your left mouse button again to get your reward.
