V Rising: How To Get Cotton? [Farming Methods & Usage]

Our V Rising Cotton guide entails the best cotton farming strategies, crafting Cotton Yard, and how to grow Cotton from Seeds in the game.

V Rising puts you in control of a vampire who must build a castle, equip some of the best weapons, explore the town, and get stronger. To power up, you’ll need to find powerful items like Soul Shards and craft better weapons and armor by farming the in-game resources. One such resource you’ll need to farm early in the game is Cotton. So today, we explain Cotton in V Rising and how to best farm it. 

Key Takeaways
  • Farm Cotton is for crafting armor pieces.
  • Kill the boss V Blood Beatrice the Tailor to obtain the Cotton Yarn and Loom recipe.
  • Find Beatrice in Dawnbreak Village.
  • To grow Cotton, clear a field near your castle, use a Grass floor, and obtain Cotton seeds.
  • Unlock the grass floor by defeating Polora the Feywalker.
  • Get Cotton Seeds by destroying the container of the cotton farm.

Importance Of Cotton

In V Rising, Cotton exists as a crop. You gather raw cotton from them and make Cotton Yarn, which is then used for crafting armor pieces. Plays within the 32-45 item level bracket need to farm cotton, as this is the point where the game starts to throw formidable enemies and bosses toward you.

Many passive damage types like Holy Radiation and Garlic Poisoning will also be introduced in this item level bracket, so you’ll need to get better armor by farming Cotton in the game to defend yourself. 

Farming Cotton

Raw Cotton is found in Cotton Farms, which are scattered throughout the Northern area of Dunely Farmlands. You can also visit the Dunely Lumber Mill to find unprocessed cotton and many other resources. Many of the Cotton Farms will be protected by Garlic Poison and we’ll explain how to deal with it in a later section.

In order to make Cotton into Cotton Yarn, you’ll need access to a Loom and the crafting recipe for Cotton Yarn, both of which are dropped by Beatrice the Tailor.

Beatrice The Tailor Boss

Beatrice doesn’t have a set spawning location, so you’ll need to track her using your Blood Altar. This boss is a unique one as she is an elderly woman. She roams around the Dawnbreak Village, and once you track her down, she will try to flee from you.

Enemies in the area will focus their attacks on you as you follow Beatrice.

Beatrice doesn’t initiate you directly in combat, instead of calling upon people nearby to defend her from the vampire. We recommend you kill her with either a Mace or a Reaper, as they provide a ranged area of attack, allowing you to inflict damage even when she’s running away from you.

Just follow her around and inflict as much damage on her as you can. She is a level 38 boss, so this game of cat and mouse will carry on for a long time. After you drink her blood, you’ll unlock the ability to shapeshift into an elderly woman and unlock the plan for building a Loom and Cotton Yarn crafting recipe in V Rising. She also has a one-in-eight chance of dropping an Unsullied Heart in V Rising.

Crafting Cotton Yarn

Once you beat Beatrice and build a Loom, you’ll be able to convert the Cotton in the game into Cotton Yarn.

One Cotton Yarn will require 20 Cotton, so be sure to build up your Cotton stocks. Once you’re set up, you can churn out Cotton Yarns with minimum effort. Cotton is also important in midgame as it is a cheap resource to farm and once you start to get servants, you can equip them with better armor, crafted from Cotton.

Growing Cotton

Grass Floor enables you to plant Crop Seeds.

Cotton, and other fibers like wool, exist in the game as a crop. This presents you with the unique opportunity to grow your cotton and become self-sufficient in it. This will also enable you to trade it with merchants in the latter part of the game. In order to grow your own cotton, you’ll need a clear field near your castle, Grass Floor and Cotton Seeds.

The Grass Floor and Minor Garlic Resistance Potion recipe is unlocked by killing Polora the Feywalker, which we briefly cover below.

Polora The Feywalker

Polora the Feywalker is a level 34 boss. You’ll need to track her from your Blood Altar.

She is a relatively easy boss. You’ll need to look out for her Energy Orb attacks as they stun you for a couple of seconds. She also calls upon several of her minions, so prioritize them as soon as they spawn.

Garlic Resistance

Once you kill Polora, you’ll unlock the plans for Grass Floor and the recipe for Minor Garlic Resistance Potion. This potion buffs your Garlic Resistance by 25 points for 20 minutes, enough to clear multiple farms of Cotton.

For a permanent increase in your Garlic Resistance, you can craft Hunter’s Cloak, which adds 15 points to your Sun, Garlic, and Silver Resistance. The recipe for this is dropped by Beatrice and costs 8 Cotton Yarns to craft.

Cotton Seeds

  • To collect Cotton Seeds in the current state of the game, destroy containers near Cotton Farms and Dunely Lumber Mill.
  • Containers in these areas have a chance to drop Cotton Seeds.
  • Bosses like Tera the Geomancer, Mairwyn the Elementalist, and Quincy the Bandit King can drop Seeds, so defeat them at item level 51 or higher.
  • Many farms have a hidden Scarecrow Boss, so attack scarecrows in Cotton Farms to increase your chances of obtaining Cotton Seeds.

Once you have the seeds, you need to place them on your bar, then press the corresponding number and your Cotton Crops will be planted. Once you have enough Cotton, you can trade it with merchants for Silver Coins.

Conclusion

The game is currently redefining what games can offer in an Early Access stage. V Rising rose to half a million players within 3 days of its launch, thanks to its unique vampiric mechanics and lore built into this MMORPG-style survival game. MMORPGs have been gaining a lot of traction in the last couple of years, but where this game shines is in its mechanics.
