Bosses in V Rising are the core element of RPG mechanics, as defeating these foul creatures allows you to unlock new vampire powers and structures to build and craft recipes. Each boss has a certain level requirement, and increasing your gear score level at par with the boss will make the encounter a walk in the park. Otherwise, you will be slain again and again if you are underleveled. That is why we have curated a list of all V Rising bosses or V Blood Carrier enemies entailing their level, location, attack patterns, and rewards in our guide. While you’re at it, consider reading the V Rising Best PvP Weapons and best base locations guide.
Alpha Wolf is the first boss that you will spot when you interact with the Blood Altar inside your castle in V Rising. The wolf is a level 16 boss, and to beat this one, you will need to be at least level 14 or above to triumph the boss fight easily. The Alpha Wolf can be located on the South East side of Farbane Woods, and here is a location image for reference so that you can find the boss easily. Also, why not read our V Rising Best Armors guide.
When you reach Alpha Wolf, who will also be surrounded by a wolf pack, the best strategy to defeat the boss would be to eliminate the pack first. It is because you will have an adequate amount of health at this level, but if you keep getting hit by wolves-charged attacks, your health will be depleted in no time. Alpha Wolf also does a charged bite attack, similar to small-sized wolves. So, maintain your distance, take out the wolf pack first and then focus on the boss.
Once you have defeated Alpha Wolf, you will unlock the Wolf form that allows you to have increased movement speed by 45%. You will need to beat this boss first so that you can roam the open world of Vardoran at a much faster rate. While you’re at it, why not read our V Rising Best Servants guide.
Keely The Frost Archer
The second boss that you will track using the Blood Altar in V Rising is Keely The Frost Archer. This humanoid boss will be of level 20 in the game, and to defeat this one, you must increase your gear score to at least level 18. Keely The Forst Archer can be located inside a bandit camp south of Farbane Woods.
Here is a location image for reference to reach the boss faster. If you equip yourself with some of the best builds in V Rising, you will have a great chance of defeating bosses in the game.
You will not only need good armor set pieces but also the weapons as well, and if you get those copper weapons early in the game, then you can defeat Keely The Frost Archer easily. The go-to attack for Keely The Frost Archer is the frost arrows that she fires three in a row.
That is why you must rely heavily on using travel ability the most during this fight in V Rising. For the best weapons in the game, consider reading our V Rising Weapons Tier List.
Dodge her attacks, get close, and deal 3-4 axe or spear slashes, then fall back; you will need to rinse and repeat this process until the boss is down and you are ready to extract V Blood from Keely The Frost Archer. Also, since she resides in the bandit camp, you will also be surrounded by 4-5 more enemies that you must take out first.
Defeating Keely The Frost Archer will unlock the following rewards for you:
Rufus The Foreman
Similar to Keely, Rufus The Foreman will also be another level 20 boss that you will need to track down using Blood Altar in V Rising. Even though this boss is also of the same level as Keely, Rufus hits hard using his bow, so you will need to have the best weapons in V Rising to take him out without much trouble.
Also, he can be found just North of Alpha Wolf’s location in a bandit camp. If you want to locate Rufus The Foreman faster in the game, then reach the location we listed below, and the blood trail will take you to the boss in no time.
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.
Once you have defeated the boss, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Blood Rage
- Structure: Woodworking Bench
- Recipes: Hunter’s Crossbow, Fishing Pole, Sculpted Wood, and Painting Frame.
Errol The Stonebreaker
Similar to Rufus and Keely, Errol The Stonebreaker is another level 20 boss who has a variety of attacks that can kill a lower-level vampire easily. This boss also comes with a lot of health, so having a high DPS ranged weapon or strong melee weapon will make the overall fight a walk in the park.
Errol the Stonebreaker can be found at the center of the Farbane Woods map inside a copper mine at the very lower level. You can locate the boss easily using the Blood Altar but if you still have trouble, then here is a location image for your reference.
Errol The Stonebreaker uses his hammer to deal melee damage when you get too close to him. If you maintain distance and start to hit him using a ranged weapon, then he will use the aftershock ability to deal chaos magic damage to you.
Errol The Stonebreaker will also be surrounded by other miner enemies that will have melee weapons to attack you. Since the boss moves very slowly, you must take out enemies first and then focus your attention on the Errol only.
Once you have defeated the boss, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Aftershock
- Recipe: Big Stash
Lidia The Chaos Archer
After the level 20 trio bosses, Lidia The Chaos Archer will present you with a challenge to fight as she is a level 26 boss in V Rising. If your gear score is level 22 or above, then you should not have difficulty beating Lidia. However, if you’re below level 20, then she will destroy you.
Lidia, The Chaos Archer, roams in the south of Farbane Woods. Using the Blood Altar will help you track the boss easily but just in case you want to cut to the chase, then reach the spot as shown in the image here, and you will find her roaming.
The boss fight is actually not that difficult if you are adequately leveled up. Lidia fires arrows that have average travel speed and can be dodged without much trouble. Other than that, if you get too close to her, she will throw chaos bombs in the air that deal with AoE attacks since she roams the open world, so you are bound to run into other enemies such as bandits and wolves, and they will also present an additional challenge while fighting the boss.
Defeating Lidia, The Chaos Archer will unlock the following rewards for you:
- Power: Chaos Volley
- Recipe: The Devourer
Grayson The Armorer
Grayson is a level 27 boss in V Rising who is relatively a more challenging boss than most V Blood carrier enemies we have listed above. It is becasue the boss hits hard using his melee weapon hammer, and he throws multiple traps in the battle area, which increases the overall difficulty of the boss fight.
Grayson The Armorer can be found in a bandit camp west of Farbane Woods, and here is an image for your reference to find the boss faster.
The greatest threat in the battle arena while fighting Grayson is not the boss itself but the traps that he throws on the ground. If you step on a trap, it will deplete your health and will slow down your movement speed, making you vulnerable to taking a heavy hit from Grayson or an archer who is spawned there by the boss.
That is why if you want to defeat Grayson easily, you must first be at least level 23 or above. Secondly, you will find at least four armor pieces hanged on a pike while fighting this boss. Interact and wear these armor, which will grant you invulnerability for a few seconds, and then walk on traps to activate them without taking a hit. This way, you will get rid of traps and can focus on dealing damage to Grayson only.
Once you have defeated the boss, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Crimson Aegis
- Structure: Five-Finger Workboards, Longboards
- Recipe: Whetstone
Goreswine The Ravager
Goreswine The Ravager is a level 27 boss in V Rising, and he deals poison status effect-based attacks to you. You will need to travel to south Farbane Woods to find this boss, and here is an image of the boss’s location if you want to reach the boss quickly.
Goreswine The Ravager will summon multiple poisonous pools that deal AoE poison damage to you. This also creates another problem as the boss maintains distance from you by casting spells, and you need to maneuver carefully to not go into the poisonous pools.
The best strategy here will be to use a ranged weapon such as a crossbow and vampire abilities such as Chaos volley that hurls two projectiles at the target, dealing chaos damage over time. You will also need to have at least a 24-gear score and have decent damage dealing, the main weapon to strike the boss and make the most out of it. If your armor is underleveled, then the poison damage will eat a lot of your health.
Once you manage to defeat Goreswine The Ravager, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Corpse Explosion and Veil of Bones
- Structure: Tomb and Nocturne Fences
- Recipes: Skeleton and Ghoul
Unlike most V Blood carrier enemies in our V Rising bosses guide, Putrid Rat is a unique one as you can not track this one using the Blood Altar. If you open the Blood Altar and hover the cursor over Putrid Rat, you will realize there is no option to track it. So, to find this boss, you will need to build the Vermin Nest structure first by scrolling to the Refinement tab under Build options.
Other than that, the boss can be located north of Farbane Woods, as shown in the image here.
Even though Putrid Rat in V Rising is a level 30 boss, you can beat this V Blood Carrier even if you have a gear score of level 25. That is because the boss does not have a lot of health and can be beaten easily. You just need to keep an eye for rat minions that the boss spawns. Clear the crowd first and then focus on Putrid Rat.
Once you have beaten the Putrid Rat, you will unlock the Rat form, which will help you get into bandit camps, settlements, and other places without getting any or all attention from enemies. However, some high-level or high faith enemies will see through your disguise.
Clive The Firestarter
Clive is another level 30 boss in V Rising that is a master of explosives and throws tons of grenades at you while fighting him. He is located far southwest of Farbane Woods in a Bandit Sulphur Quarry camp, and here is an image of the location where you can find this boss.
Defeating this boss should not be a problem as he is very slow and throws grenades or explosive devices to deal damage. You can pretty much easily dodge these AoE attacks and deal damage to Clive The Firestarter using ranged weapons such as a crossbow or ranged vampire abilities.
You must also look out for archer and melee enemies that are present in this bandit camp. Take them out first and then focus your attention on the boss; otherwise, it will get very difficult for you to dodge enemies as well as Clive’s AoE explosive attacks.
If you manage to beat Clive The Firestarter, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Veil of Chaos
- Structure: Alchemy Table, Assortment of Enchanted Braziers, and Assortment of Enchanted Torches
- Recipes: Sulphur and Minor Explosive Box
Polora The Feywalker
Polora is a level 34 boss in V Rising, and she is a master of dealing magic ranged damage and is very weak if you get close to her and do melee damage. The boss can be found northwest of Farbane Woods, which is also close to the south side of the Silverlight Hills region of Vardoran in V Rising.
If you want to defeat Polora The Feywalker, you will need to have at least a 30 gear score and must have an excellent melee weapon because she is weak against melee attacks. Polora will summon magical orbs that shoot orb projectiles at you, creating a challenge to focus on Polora.
When you get too close to the boss, she will cast an AoE attack that will make your character run away from the boss, and when you’re at a distance, she will constantly cast a spectral wolf spell on you.
The key strategy here will be to reserve your travel ability and use it when Polora is about to cast a fear AoE attack. Till then, you try and get close to the boss and deal melee damage. If you are leveled adequately, then the boss will not be much of a threat.
Defeating Polora The Feywalker will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Spectral Wolf, Veil of Illusion
- Structure: Vampire Waygate and Garden Floors
- Recipes: Minor Garlic Resistance Brew
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.
Ferocious Bear mainly deals with melee attacks only, and if he gets close to you, he will do a paw swing attack, covering a wide area before him. He will also use a follow-up slam attack that will cause tremors in the Bear Cave, and a couple of rock boulders will fall on multiple positions.
Even if you have a 36 gear score, the Ferocious Bear boss fight will still be a challenge because the boss attacks deplete a lot of your health. So, you will need to stock up on various healing and damage buff potions to fight and defeat the Ferocious Bear in V Rising.
Besides using the vampire travel ability, you should also equip the Blood Rite ability, as it will allow you to block Ferocious Bear’s attacks while recovering a short amount of health per usage.
Defeating Ferocious Bear will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Bear Form
- Recipe: Fur Rugs
The bear form is one of the best vampire abilities in V Rising as it allows you to regenerate health faster and destroy objects such as trees stones and more quickly. This form also increases movement speed by 15%, increases resistance toward garlic and holy radiation by 25%, and reduces physical damage taken as well by 25%.
Nicholaus The Fallen
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 lots of skeletons to attack you, and two, he uses poison damage by casting spells that drain health over time.
If you want to reach this boss faster, then head over to the very center of Farbane Woods, and you will reach the cemetery as shown in the location here.
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, and you can reach the boss without much trouble. Secondly, you will need to rely on ranged attacks for the boss and AoE abilities for skeletons that Goreswine The Ravager spawns. We used Iron Axe, which has excellent attack power and Chaos Barrage ability, to defeat this boss.
Defeating this Nicholaus, The Fallen will unlock the following rewards:
- Powers: Pestilence and Ward of the Damned
- Structure: Study
Quincy The Bandit King
Before you head towards Quincy’s location, you must first defeat Clive and obtain a Minor Explosive box recipe. It is because if you do not get this recipe, you will not be able to enter Quincy’s stronghold as the gate is barged by a wooden gate, then you will need to blow up.
Quincy The Bandit King, being a level 37 boss in V Rising, 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, The Bandit King, will also spawn minions who will run after you to deal melee damage. So, the best strategy here will be to get rid of these minions as soon as possible and revert back the focus to the boss.
Defeating Quincy, The Bandit King will unlock the following rewards for you in V Rising:
- Power: Chaos Barrier and Merciless Charge
- Structure: Smithy and Tailoring Bench,
- Recipes: Iron Ingot, Iron Weapons, and Hollowfang Battlegear
Beatrice The Tailor
Unlike most V Blood carrier bosses in our V Rising boss guide, Beatrice The Tailor is just a human NPC that is only good at running away from you. This boss has no attack pattern or moveset whatsoever. Instead, she lives in a village that is full of militia, and they come to fight her whenever Beatrice runs and cries for help.
The best strategy here will be to rely most on your travel ability and have high DPS weapons in V Rising. This way, you will be able to ignore the enemies and focus only after striking Beatrice The Tailor. Also, consider reading the V Rising Tailor Floor guide.
In order to find Beatrice, you will need to locate the Dawnbreak Village in the Dunley Farmlands region of Vardoran. If you don’t know where this village is, then go to the east section of the map, and you will find the Dawnbreak Village.

Vincent The Frostbringer
Vincent is a level 40 V Blood carrier in V Rising, and to beat this boss, and you will need the appropriate gear score level. If your GS is below 38, then avoid getting into a fight with Vincent, as he will destroy you with his frost abilities and heavy melee attacks. You should not only equip your vampire with some of the high DPS weapons in V Rising but also equip better armor set-pieces as well.
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 here.
Vincent is not found in a single camp, and he can be easily spotted circulated the roads that lead to Haunted Iron Mines, where you will find an abundance of iron ore in V Rising. 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 focus on the boss alone because he is tough to beat.
Once you have managed to defeat Vincent The Frostbringer in V Rising, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Frost Barrier, Veil of Frost
- Structure: Prison Cell
- Recipes: Reinforced Plank
Christina The Sun Priestess
Christina, The Sun priestess, is a level 44 V Blood carrier in V Rising, and she is a challenging boss in the game. She can not be located in a single place as she is a roaming boss, but usually, you will find her roaming the roads between Haunted Iron Mines and Dawnbreak Village.
Here is an image for your reference if you want to find Christina the Sun Priestess faster in V Rising.
You will need to be at least a gear score of 40 to have a chance of defeating Christina The Sun Priestess. It is because she will use holy spells to heal herself, and that will only increase the frustration of you frequently draining her health.
Christina also spawns multiple enemies during the fight, so having high DPS weapons will help you take out the mob faster and focus again on Christina, the Sun Priestess. She does not have a lot of physical armor, so you must focus on doing melee damage instead of ranged ones to deplete her health faster.
After defeating Christina the Sun Priestess, you will unlock the following rewards in V Rising:
- Power: Purgatory
- Recipes: Glass, Empty Glass Bottle, Blood Rose Potion, and Holy Resistance Potion
Leandra The Shadow Priestess
Leandra, The Shadow Priestess, is a level 46 V Blood carrier boss in V Rising, and she is not a big threat if you are at gear score 42 or above. The boss has average movesets, and most of them are ranged attacks, allowing you to dodge them easily. We have covered a complete guide on Leandra The Shadow Priestess in V Rising, so make sure you go through it.
Leandra summons minions, but they do not have much health and are also not great in numbers as well. 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, as mentioned, and here is an image of the boss’s location so that you can find Leandra, the shadow priestess, faster in V Rising.

He is a roaming boss who can be spotted in the North East to North West region of Farbane Woods. You must have bumped into him while your early game when your gear score would be lower than level 30.
Tristan, the Vampire Hunter, must not be engaged in the early game as you will neither have adequate weapons nor armor set pieces to survive the fight. Besides having the best equipment, you will also need potions to keep your vampire healed, and a few consumable buffs items will also help while fighting Tristian the Vampire Hunter. While you’re at it, why not go through our V Rising Item List.
This boss uses his sword to do slash damage, which is a wide angular attack in front of the boss. Tristian, the Vampire Hunter, will also throw fire-based attacks as well, which will deal burn damage that is lethal during an early game or even mid-game if you don’t have appropriate health potions to recover your health.

Here is an image for reference, just in case you don’t know where this location exactly is in the game.
Similar to 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 will be a challenge.
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, too, is weak against melee attacks.
Once you have defeated Meredith, The Bright Archer, you will unlock the following rewards:

Frostmaw The Mountain Terror

Ungora The Spider
Ungora the Spider is a level 60 boss in V Rising, and to defeat this one, you will need to be at par with the boss’s level or even higher.

The Duke of Balaton
The Duke of Balaton is a level 62 end-game boss in V rising that is located at north Cursed Forest.

Here is an image for your reference so that you can reach the boss’s location easily.
We recommend you do not engage in melee combat with The Duke of Balaton and maintain a distance. Use a crossbow that can deal with high DPS and spam your ranged vampire abilities that slowly drain away from the health of the boss.
Defeating The Duke of Balaton will unlock the Toad form, which allows you to turn into a large-sized toad and jump higher in the air. It is unclear what strategic advantage you get by unlocking or shapeshifting into the toad form as a higher jump does not offer much to the table as compared to other useful forms such as wolf, bat, and bear forms.
You can, however, jump to high cliffs using Toad form, but that is a very particular advantage that has little advantage elsewhere.
Jade The Vampire Hunter
Similar to Tristian, Jade the Vampire Hunter is another formidable boss in V Rising that is not easy to kill. She is a level 62 boss in the game who roams near the Haunted Iron Mines to the road that leads to Dunley Monastery.
We recommend having the high DPS end-game weapons and armor set pieces equipped on your vampire character before engaging in combat with Jade. Also, you must bring the healing and buff potions to make the most of your encounter with this boss in V Rising.
Otherwise, Jade’s dual pistols do heavy damage, and you will find yourself in need of health recovery frequently. Since Jade The Vampire Hunter roams a particular area, you are bound to run into enemies that may also engage you. Try to defeat them first using ranged attacks and then focus back your attention on Jade.
Defeating Jade The Vampire Hunter unlocks some of the best rewards in V Rising, and here is the list of power and recipes you get after killing Jade:
- Power: Chaos Barrage
- Recipes: Major Explosive Box, Primal Blood Essence
Foulrot The Soultaker

Willfred The Werewolf Chief
Since you play as a vampire, then you are bound to run into your archenemies in V Rising at some point or another. Willfred, the Werewolf Chief, is the perfect enemy that not only suits the game’s theme but the boss battle itself is very interesting.
In order to find Willfred the Werewolf Chief, you will need to reach Gloomgrave Village during the night time because, during the day, the boss will shapeshift into an NPC and will be unkillable. So, to extract V Blood out of the boss, you will need to fight the boss during the nighttime.
The Gloomgrave Village is located near the southern entrance of the Cursed Forest, the nearest location to Dunley Farmland.
The best strategy to beat Willfred The Werewolf Chief is that you equip yourself with weapons and spell that deal AoE damage. The reason for it is that the boss summons humans in between the fight, and he consumes them, recovering nearly 10% of his health.
That is why if you have AoE damaging vampire powers and weapons, you will be able to take out these humans faster before the boss can consume them and regenerate the lost health.
After defeating the Willfred the Werewolf Chief, you will get the following rewards:
- Power: Heart Strike
- Recipes: Holy Resistance Strike
Mairwyn The Elementalist

He can be located in the southeast Silverlight Hills region of the game, just where you cross the south army post of this region. Here is an image for reference if you want to find Mairwyn The Elementalist boss faster in V Rising.
We recommend you must have some of the best ultimates unlocked and equipped in V Rising to fight this boss, as you will need all the best spells and arsenal to face off with him. When you start the battle, she will unleash the fire spell at you that basically is a large AoE attack that lasts for 4-5 seconds.
Secondly, Mairwyn The Elementalist will fire freeze or ice volleys at you that will freeze you if you are hit two times. Third, she sends flying electric orbs at you to deal a good amount of elemental damage.
The best strategy to fight Mairwyn, The Elementalist boss in V Rising, will be to remain at mid-distance and you ranged weapons and abilities to deplete the boss’s health slowly. She will also create her mirror image when her health falls below 50-60%.
After you have defeated Mairwyn, The Elementalist boss in the game, you will unlock the following rewards:
- Power: Crystal Lance
- Recipes: Imperial Thread
Morian The Stormwing Matriarch

The boss uses chaos bolts every now and then and also does dash attack that deals chaos damage. Morian, The Stormwing Matriarch, will spawn other harpy birds to fight in the battle against you, so you must focus fire on them first and then engage the boss.
If your gear score is level 64 or above, then you will not have a problem defeating the boss. Morian has slow movement and attacks speed, and this makes him vulnerable to ranged as well as melee attacks. That is why you must go with your high DPS weapons to defeat this V Blood carrier in V Rising.

Azariel The Sunbringer
Azariel the Sunbringer is a level 68, one of the end-game bosses in V Rising, who is very hard to defeat if you do not have items or potions unlocked for resistance against holy radiation. It is becasue the boss is located in the western part of Silverlight Hills inside the Brighhaven Cathedral. Here is an image for your reference if you want to reach this boss faster in the game.
Before you reach the boss’s location, you must first acquire a Holy Radiation resistance flask, which can be given to you as a reward after defeating Willfred the Werewolf Chief. Secondly, you will need to craft the cloak whose recipe is rewarded to you after defeating Foulrot boss.
Using both of these elements will give you decent holy damage resistance, allowing you to stand a chance against Azariel The Sunbringer V Blood carrier in V Rising.
