Alpha Wolf

V Rising Boss
Alpha Wolf – location
  • Location: Wolf Den.
  • Unlocked Vampire Power: Wolf Form.

Alpha Wolf is the first boss you will spot when interacting with the Blood Altar inside your castle in V Rising. It’s a level 16 boss, requiring you to be at least level 14 or higher for an easy victory. You’ll find the Alpha Wolf in the southeast of Farbane Woods, accompanied by a wolf pack.

To defeat the boss effectively, start by eliminating the wolf pack. With adequate health at this level, avoiding their attacks is crucial, as their charged attacks can quickly deplete your health. The Alpha Wolf also employs a charged bite attack, similar to smaller wolves. Keep your distance, deal with the pack first, and then focus on the boss.

Defeating Alpha Wolf unlocks the Wolf form, enhancing your movement speed by 45%. This victory is necessary to explore Vardoran’s open world significantly faster.

Keely The Frost Archer

V Blood Carrier Keely
Keely the frost archer – location
  • Power: Frost Bat
  • Structure: Tannery
  • Recipes: Traveller’s Wrap, Empty Canteen, and Leather

In V Rising, the second boss, Keely, The Frost Archer, is a level 20 humanoid. You need a gear progression score of at least 18. Find Keely south of Farbane Woods in a bandit camp. You’ll require good armor and weapons, with early-game copper weapons making the battle easy. Keely’s primary attack involves firing three consecutive frost arrows.

During the fight, heavily rely on your travel ability. Dodge her attacks, get close, deliver 3-4 axe or spear slashes, and repeat this process until she’s defeated. You’ll then extract V Blood from Keely, who is accompanied by 4-5 additional enemies due to the bandit camp location. Consider reading our V Rising Weapons Tier List for the best weapons in the game.

Rufus The Foreman

V Rising Boss
Rufus the Foreman – location
  • Power: Blood Rage
  • Structure: Woodworking Bench
  • Recipes: Hunter’s Crossbow, Fishing Pole, Sculpted Wood, and Painting Frame.

Like Keely, Rufus The Foreman will also be another level 20 boss that you must track down using Blood Altar in V Rising. He’s the same level as Keely and hits hard using his bow, so you will need the best weapons in V Rising to take him out without much trouble.

Once you engage with the boss, taking out other enemies will make the overall boss fight an easy task. Otherwise, you will be swarmed by the archer and melee damage-dealing enemies and, on top of that, Rufus the Foreman as well.

Using ranged spells or some of the best abilities in V Rising for this boss fight will prove useful, or having weapons that have secondary abilities will also give you an edge in the boss fight.

Errol The Stonebreaker

Errol V Blood carrier
Errol the Stonebreaker – location
  • Power: Aftershock
  • Recipe: Big Stash

Like Rufus and Keely, Errol The Stonebreaker is a level 20 boss with various deadly attacks. High DPS ranged, or strong melee weapons are essential to defeat this boss. You can find Errol in the center of Farbane Woods inside a copper mine at the lower level, easily located using the Blood Altar.

Errol uses his hammer for melee attacks at close range. Keep your distance and use a ranged weapon to avoid his aftershock ability, dealing chaos magic damage. He is accompanied by miner enemies with melee weapons, so eliminate them first due to his slow movement before focusing on him.

Lidia, The Chaos Archer

V Rising Boss
Lidia The chaos archer – location
  • Power: Chaos Volley
  • Recipe: The Devourer 

Lidia, The Chaos Archer, is a level 26 boss in V Rising. You’ll need a gear score of level 22 or higher to defeat her. Below level 20, she’ll overpower you. Lidia roams the south of Farbane Woods. The Blood Altar helps you locate her, or refer to the provided image above for her location.

With the right level, her boss fight isn’t very challenging. Lidia’s arrows are easily dodged due to their average travel speed. If you approach her, she’ll use chaos bombs with area-of-effect attacks. Since she roams the open world, expect additional challenges from bandits and wolves.

Grayson The Armorer

Grayson V Blood Carrier
Grayson the armorer – location
  • Power: Crimson Aegis
  • Structure: Five-Finger Workboards, Longboards
  • Recipe: Whetstone

Grayson, a level 27 boss in V Rising, proves more challenging due to his powerful hammer strikes and deployed traps. He resides in a bandit camp west of Farbane Woods. The primary threat in the battle isn’t Grayson but the bis traps. Stepping on one depletes your health and hinders your movement, making you vulnerable to attacks from Grayson or archers he summons.

To defeat Grayson easily, ensure you’re at least level 23. Find four armor pieces during the fight, wear them for temporary invulnerability, and trigger traps without harm, allowing you to focus on damaging Grayson.

Goreswine The Ravager

V Rising Boss
Goreswine the Ravager – location
  • Power: Corpse Explosion and Veil of Bones 
  • Structure: Tomb and Nocturne Fences
  • Recipes: Skeleton and Ghoul

Goreswine The Ravager, a level 27 boss in V Rising, inflicts poison-based attacks. Locate him in south Farbane Woods.

The boss summons poisonous pools, causing AoE poison damage while keeping a distance from you. To tackle this, use a ranged weapon like a crossbow and vampire abilities like Chaos Volley for sustained chaos damage. Ensure a gear score of at least 24 and strong damage-dealing weapons. Under-leveled armor will result in significant health loss due to poison damage.

Putrid Rat

V Blood Carrier Putrid Rat
Putrid Rat – location
  • Unlocked Spells: Rat Form.

Unlike most V Blood carriers, V Rising’s Putrid Rat is unique because you can’t track it using the Blood Altar. To find this boss, build the Vermin Nest structure in the Refinement tab under Build options. You can locate the boss north of Farbane Woods.

Despite being a level 30 boss, you can defeat Putrid Rat with a gear score of 25. The boss has limited health and is easily defeated. Beware of rat minions it spawns; clear them first before focusing on Putrid Rat. Defeating Putrid Rat unlocks the Rat form, allowing you to infiltrate locations like bandit camps and settlements without drawing attention. Keep in mind that high-level or high-faith enemies can see through your disguise.

Clive The Firestarter

V Rising Boss
Clive The firestarter – location
  • Power: Veil of Chaos
  • Structure: Alchemy Table, Assortment of Enchanted Braziers, and Assortment of Enchanted Torches
  • Recipes: Sulphur and Minor Explosive Box

Clive, a level 30 boss in V Rising, is an explosives expert who hurls numerous grenades. Find him in the Bandit Sulphur Quarry camp, far southwest of Farbane Woods.

Defeating Clive is straightforward; he’s slow, and his grenades are avoidable. Use ranged weapons or vampire abilities to harm him. Eliminate archer and melee enemies in the camp before concentrating on the boss to prevent difficulty dodging enemies and Clive’s AoE explosives.

Polora The Feywalker

V Rising Boss
Polora The Feywalker – location
  • Power: Spectral Wolf, Veil of Illusion
  • Structure: Vampire Waygate and Garden Floors
  • Recipes: Minor Garlic Resistance Brew 

Polora, a level 34 boss in V Rising, excels at magic ranged damage but is vulnerable to melee attacks. You can find her northwest of Farbane Woods, near the south side of Silverlight Hills in Vardoran. Make sure you have a gear score of at least 30 and a strong melee weapon. Polora summons magical orbs that fire projectiles, creating a challenge.

When you approach her, she casts an AoE attack, forcing your character to flee. From a distance, she constantly summons spectral wolves. To defeat her easily, reserve your travel ability for her Fear AoE attack. Approach the boss and deal melee damage when the opportunity arises. With adequate levels, Polora won’t pose a significant threat.

Ferocious Bear

V Rising Boss
Ferocious Bear – location
  • Power: Bear Form. 
  • Recipe: Fur Rugs.

Ferocious Bear is a level 36 boss in V Rising, and he may seem slow and harmless, but that is not what you will expect once you engage in the fight. Here is an image of the boss’s location, which is far east of Farbane Woods. 

It primarily relies on melee attacks, with a paw swing attack covering a wide area when he gets close, followed by a slam attack causing falling boulders. Even with a gear score of 36, the boss poses a challenge due to his high-damage attacks so stock up on healing and damage buff potions.

Use the vampire travel ability and equip the Blood Rite ability to block the bear’s attacks while recovering a small amount of health with each use.

Nicholaus The Fallen

Nicholaus V Blood Carrier
Nicholaus The Fallen – location
  • Powers: Pestilence and Ward of the Damned
  • Structure: Study

Nicholaus The Fallen is a difficult early-game boss in V Rising, and he is a level 37 boss, so you will need at least a 34-gear score to beat him. There are two reasons you will find this boss fighting hard. One, he summons many skeletons to attack you, and two, he uses poison damage by casting spells that drain health over time.

You can make this boss fight easier by approaching the boss at night time as the undead enemies will not be there in the cemetery. Secondly, you must rely on ranged attacks for the boss and AoE abilities for skeletons that Goreswine The Ravager spawns. We used the Iron Axe, which has excellent attack power and Chaos Barrage ability, to defeat this boss.

Quincy, The Bandit King

V Rising Boss
Quincy The Bandit King – location
  • Power: Chaos Barrier and Merciless Charge 
  • Structure: Smithy and Tailoring Bench, 
  • Recipes: Iron Ingot, Iron Weapons, and Hollowfang Battlegear

Before you reach Quincy’s location, defeat Clive and acquire the Minor Explosive Box recipe. Without it, you can’t access Quincy’s stronghold, as a wooden gate blocks the entrance and must be blown up.

Being a level 37 boss in V Rising, Quincy is not challenging enough, and you should be able to beat the boss if you have a gear score of 32 or above. His attack patterns are very basic, and he is slow, so you can either use a ranged weapon or a melee one; the choice is yours. Quincy will spawn melee minions, so the best strategy is to eliminate them and then refocus back on the boss.

Beatrice The Tailor

V Rising Boss
Beatrice The Tailor – location
  • Power: Human Form 
  • Structure: Loom
  • Recipes: Hunter’s Cloak, Cloth, and Cotton Yarn

Unlike most V Blood carrier bosses in our V Rising guide, Beatrice The Tailor is just a human NPC who excels at running away. She lacks attack patterns and lives in a village with militia who defend her when she calls for help.

The optimal strategy involves relying on your travel ability and using high DPS weapons in V Rising. This allows you to ignore enemies and focus solely on Beatrice.

To find Beatrice, locate the Dawnbreak Village in the Dunley Farmlands region of Vardoran. It’s in the eastern section of the map. This way, you can ignore the enemies and focus only after striking Beatrice The Tailor. Also, consider reading the V Rising Tailor Floor guide.

Vincent The Frostbringer

Vincent V Blood Carrier
Vincent The Frostbringer – location
  • Power: Frost Barrier, Veil of Frost 
  • Structure: Prison Cell
  • Recipes: Reinforced Plank

Vincent, The Frostbringer in V Rising, is a level 40 V Blood carrier in V Rising, and to beat this boss, you will need the appropriate gear score level. If your GS is below 38, avoid fighting with Vincent, as he will destroy you with his frost abilities and heavy melee attacks.

Vincent The Frostbringer can be located at the very center of the Dunley Farmlands region of Vardoran in V Rising. He is a roaming boss, so expect to find him somewhere here, as shown in the image above

Vincent is not found in a single camp, and he can be easily spotted circulating the roads that lead to Haunted Iron Mines. He’d mostly be accompanied by other enemies who also patrol the roads, so you will need to separate Vincent The Frostbringer from them first and then solely focus on him.

Christina, The Sun Priestess

V Rising Boss
Christina The Sun Priestess – location
  • Power: Purgatory 
  • Recipes: Glass, Empty Glass Bottle, Blood Rose Potion, and Holy Resistance Potion

Christina, The Sun Priestess, a level 44 V Blood carrier in V Rising, is a roaming boss. Typically, she traverses the roads between Haunted Iron Mines and Dawnbreak Village.

To have a fighting chance, you must possess a gear score of at least 40. She employs healing holy spells, making it frustrating to deplete her health. She summons multiple enemies during the battle, so high DPS weapons are essential to eliminate them quickly and refocus on her. With minimal physical armor, concentrate on melee attacks for quicker health depletion.

Krigg, The Undead General

  • Location: Haunted Iron Mine
  • Unlocked Spells: Ward of the Damned
  • Unlocked Recipes: Skeleton Priest, Reaper.

Krigg, The Undead General, a new V Blood Boss in the Gloomrot update, was formerly a regular enemy in V Rising. You can find him in the Haunted Iron Mine within Farbane Woods. As a Level 44 boss, I don’t recommend facing Krigg in the early game. So ensure your gear is upgraded to at least level 45 before challenging him in his lair.

Krigg has the tendency to summon minions, including melee and archer enemies. He also uses various melee and AoE attacks that can quickly turn the tide of battle.

Bane The Shadowblade

  • Location: Dunley Farmlands
  • Unlocked Spells: Veil of Bones, Human Form
  • Unlocked Recipes: Slashers, Small Coin Purse

Bane The Shadowblade, a Servant of Undeath, wields exceptionally skilled swords. He’s a Level 47 boss, so ensure you’re well-prepped before facing him. Unlike other V Blood Carriers, Bane is found in the open world, making the boss battle tougher. Search the roads in Dunley Farmlands to locate him.

Bane often appears in his human form, making it tricky to spot him. But once attacked, he returns to his true hooded form. The battle is intense due to his speed, but high-level Iron Weapons and a suitable blood type, either Brute or Warrior, will help you defeat him.

Leandra, The Shadow Priestess

V Rising Boss
Leandra The Shadow Priestess – location
  • Power: Spectral Assassin 
  • Structure: Jewelcrafting Table
  • Recipes: Scourge Pendant, Scourgestone, Skeleton Priest

Leandra, The Shadow Priestess in V Rising, is a level 46 V Blood carrier boss, and she is not a big threat if you are at gear score 42 or above. The boss has average move sets, most of which are ranged attacks, allowing you to dodge them easily. Leandra summons minions, but they do not have much health and are also not great in numbers. That is why you must first eliminate them and focus your attention back on Leandra, the shadow priestess.

In order to find Leandra, the Shadow Priestess, you must travel to the Church of the Damned, located Northeast section of Dunley Farmlands. Once you are there, you will find the boss inside the church.

Tristian, The Vampire Hunter

Tristian vampire hunter V Blood Carrier
Tristian The Vampire Hunter – location

Tristan, the Vampire Hunter, a level 46 V Blood carrier in V Rising, requires a gear score of at least 44. You’ll encounter him roaming in the North East to North West region of Farbane Woods. You might have crossed paths with him during the early game when your gear score was lower than 30.

Avoid facing Tristan, the Vampire Hunter, in the early game, as you won’t possess the necessary weapons or armor pieces to survive. Besides top-tier equipment, prepare with healing potions to maintain your vampire’s health, and consider consumable buff items when challenging him. Tristan employs a wide angular sword attack and throws fire-based attacks causing burn damage, which can be lethal, even in the mid-game.

Maja The Dark Savant

  • Location: Forbidden Tower in Dunley Farmlands.
  • Unlocked Spells: Veil of Illusion.
  • Unlocked Recipes: Scroll.
  • Unlocked Structures: Study.

Maja the Dark Savant, a Level 47 V Blood Carrier, is a crucial boss in V Rising, as defeating her unlocks the Study for discovering new items and weapons. To face her, make sure your gear is at least above 45. You can locate Maja in the Forbidden Tower of Dunley Farmlands, located in the northeastern area.

Maja is a formidable foe with deadly AoE and Ranged attacks. She can also summon demons and heal herself. Precision and swiftness are essential for defeating her; underestimating her is unwise.

Terah The Geomancer

V Rising Boss
Terah The Geomancer – location
  • Power: Spectral Guardian 
  • Structure: Gem Cutting Table
  • Recipes: Siege Golem Stone, Regular Gems

Terah, the Geomancer, is a mid to late-game boss in V Rising and a level 48 V Blood carrier in the game. If you want to find this boss in the game, you will need to go to the northwest section of the Dunley Farmlands and come across a place called Bedrock Pass. You will find Terah The Geomancer there on the top floor.

You must be at least a gear score level 45 or above to defeat Terah, The Geomancer, as she can be a tough opponent. We recommend maintaining a distance from her and using ranged weapons or ranged vampire abilities to damage her easily.

Meredith The Bright Archer

V Rising Boss
Meredith The Bright Archer – location
  • Power: Sanguine Coil 
  • Recipes: Wool Thread

Meredith, The Bright Archer, is a level 52 V Blood carrier in V Rising, and she deals holy damage via her arrows and AoE volley attacks. If you want to find her faster, you must reach inside the Haunter Iron Mines located south of the Dunley Farmlands in Vardoran.

Like most archery bosses in V Rising, the moveset and attack pattern of Meredith, The Bright Archer is more or less the game. Her go-to attack is using a bow and arrow, but she deals holy damage, so expect a good amount of health loss per hit. Also, she is a 50+ level boss, so taking her down isn’t easy.

You will also need to be at least at gear score 48 or above to withstand Meredith The Bright Archer boss fight and emerge victorious. We recommend using melee attacks as, like most archers in V Rising, Meredith is weak against melee attacks. 

Frostmaw The Mountain Terror

frostmaw V Blood Carrier
Frostmaw The Mountain Terror – location
  • Power: Ice Nova 
  • Recipes: Scroll

Frostmaw, The Mountain Terror, a level 56 V Blood carrier in V Rising, demands top-tier weapons, armor, and potions for defeating. Find him in the north Hallowed Mountains region of Vardoran.

Frostmaw offers a more challenging battle than Dunley Farmlands and Farbane Woods bosses. His high melee damage rapidly depletes your health, so ensure you come prepared with ample healing potions and consumables. Extracting V Blood from Frostmaw grants the Ice Nova ability, a valuable vampire skill useful throughout V Rising, allowing you to freeze enemies and other players in PvP encounters.

Octavian, The Militia Captain

V Rising Boss
Octavian, the Militia Captain – location
  • Power: Mirror Strike 
  • Structure: Anvil
  • Recipes: Dark Silver Ingot, Dawnthorn Regalia, Dark Silver Weapons

Octavian, The militia captain, is a level 58 boss in V Rising who wields a long sword and has a few magic tricks up his sleeve. Defeating this boss is very important, and it unlocks some of the best recipes, power, and structure upgrades in V Rising. In order to find the Octavian, the Militia Captain, you will need to reach the Bastion of Dunley region located northeast of Dunley Farmlands.

Octavian, The Militia Captain, uses his sword for both melee and magic attacks. Dodge his slow-moving swinging blades to avoid significant health loss, as they can also stun you, leaving you vulnerable to follow-up attacks.

Raziel The Shephard

Raziel
Raziel The Shephard – location
  • Power: Crimson Beam 
  • Structure: Athenaeum
  • Recipes: Silver Resistance Potion, Corrupted Artefact

Raziel the Shephard, the level 60 V Rising boss and leader of Dunley Monastery, is among the game’s strongest bosses. To engage him, you need holy radiation resistance; otherwise, as soon as you step into Dunley Monastery, your health will start to deplete due to heavy holy radiation damage in V Rising.

Head to northwest Dunley Farmlands for a swift encounter, as shown in the image above. Find Raziel after progressing through the monastery, defeating enemies along the way. Ensure your gear score is at least level 57 to stand a chance against Raziel. Utilize ranged weapons and abilities while maintaining distance from the boss.

Ungora The Spider

V Rising Boss
Ungora The Spider Queen – location
  • Power: Volatile Arachnid 
  • Recipes: Ghost Yarn, Silk, Spiderling

Ungora the Spider, a level 60 boss in V Rising, demands a character level matching or exceeding the boss. In this unique encounter, the boss and its summoned minion spiders substantially damage your vampire character. You can find Ungora in the northeast part of the Cursed Forest, deep inside a spider cave.

The boss fight is challenging when using melee attacks. Employing your best-ranged weapons and vampire abilities to attack Ungora from a distance while using melee attacks on the pursuing minions is advisable.

Domina, The Blade Dancer

  • Location: Rustlock Village in South Gloomrot.
  • Unlocked Spells: Polarity Shift.
  • Unlocked Structures: Castle Teleporter.

Facing Domina The Blade Dancer, a Level 60 V Rising boss, requires reaching Level 56-58, with Level 60 recommended. Victory grants the Polarity Shift spell and Castle Teleporter. Find Domina in Rustlock Village within Gloomrot South, where she and her minions battle. She wields various attacks, including ranged, melee, and AoE, making dodging essential. Deal with her minions swiftly and master her moves for victory.

Angram The Purifier

  • Location: Pools of Rebirth in Gloomrot South.
  • Unlocked Spells: Chaos Barrier.
  • Unlocked Recipes: Irradiant Gruel, Mutated Rat, Major Explosive Box.

Angram the Purifier, a Level 60 cyborg V Blood Carrier, was revived by Doctor Henry Blackbrew with metal enhancements, including a massive cannon arm. He resides in the perilous Pools of Rebirth within Gloomrot South, protected by numerous minions.

Agility is vital when facing Angram. Despite his size, he can deal substantial damage, especially with the Ignite effect from his projectile attacks. Victory rewards you with the Chaos Barrier spell and multiple recipes.

Ziva The Engineer

  • Location: Trancendum Machine Factory in Gloomrot South.
  • Unlocked Spells: Ball Lightning.
  • Unlocked Structures: Fabricator.
  • Unlocked Recipes: Empty Cannister, Radium Alloy.

Face Ziva, the Engineer, a Level 60 V Blood Carrier in Gloomrot South, near the Trancendum Machine. Ensure your gear is above Level 56 before the battle. She excels in fire-based damage. Prepare with Fire Resistance Brew. Victory grants access to the Fabricator Structure, Ball Lightning Spell, and Radium Alloy and Empty Canisters recipes.

The fight is challenging, with Ziva using a Flamethrower and AoE Ball Lightning spells. Melee weapons like Swords or Axes work best against her.

The Old Wanderer

  • Location: Roads of Cursed Forest.
  • Unlocked Recipes: Shroud of the Forest.

Although Level 62, The Old Wanderer offers a relatively easy boss fight. The challenge lies in the Cursed Forest’s location, where he roams in V Rising. Initially, the Old Wanderer is non-aggressive; you’ll need to initiate the battle. The main challenge comes from other lurking enemies in the Cursed Forest attacking you, so stay vigilant.

He primarily uses defensive spells for damage and debuffs, like slowing your speed, which are easy to dodge. Victory unlocks the Shroud of the Forest recipe.

The Duke Of Balaton

duke of balaton V Blood Carrier
Duke of Balaton – location
  • Location: Swamp of Greed
  • Unlocked Spells: Toad Form
  • Unlocked Recipes: Medium Coin Purse, Goldsun Coin, Silver Coin, Copper Coin.

The Duke of Balaton, a level 64 end-game boss in V Rising, resides in the North Cursed Forest. To reach him quickly, head northwest from the Nest of the Curse Weaver or proceed to the far north end of the Cursed Forest in Vardoran. Engage The Duke of Balaton from a distance using a high DPS crossbow and spam your ranged vampire abilities to drain his health.

Defeating him unlocks the Toad form, allowing higher jumps. However, its strategic advantage is limited compared to other forms like wolf, bat, and bear forms. It’s particularly useful for reaching high cliffs but has limited utility elsewhere.

Jade The Vampire Hunter

Jade V Blood Carrier
Jade the vampire hunter – location
  • Power: Chaos Barrage 
  • Recipes: Major Explosive Box, Primal Blood Essence

Jade the Vampire Hunter, a level 62 boss in V Rising, roams near the Haunted Iron Mines and the road leading to Dunley Monastery. Before facing her, prepare with high DPS end-game gear, armor, healing, and buff potions. Engage from range to defeat surrounding enemies first, as Jade’s dual pistols deal heavy damage, requiring frequent health recovery during the fight.

Foulrot The Soultaker

V Rising Boss
Foulrot the soultaker – location
  • Power: Mist Trance 
  • Recipes: Phantom’s Veil, Spectral Dust, Banshee

Like Jade The Vampire Hunter, Foulrot The Soultaker is another level 62 boss in V Rising that must be defeated for sweet rewards. You can find this boss in the game at the far southeast end of the Cursed Forest of Vardoran. Once you reach the location shown in the image, you will reach an Ancient Village, which will be home to old spirits, and you will find Foulrot The Soultaker at the far end of the village. 

Mist Trance and Phantom’s Veil are the best rewards you will get after killing this boss. The cloak in V Rising gives you a massive stat boost in physical defense, and the vampire power Mist Trance will basically make you invincible against incoming attacks for a few seconds.

Willfred The Werewolf Chief

V Rising Boss
Willfred The Werewolf Chief – location
  • Power: Heart Strike.
