Ghost Yarn Farming in V Rising
There are two methods that we have come across so far in V Rising through which you can get the Ghost Yarn item in the game. The first one is the classic rinse and repeat process of farming items by killing enemies, opening loot chests, and more. It does not guarantee a 100% drop chance of Ghost Yarn in the game, but since the options are very limited, you will need to repeat the grinding process to farm Ghost Yarn.
The second method involves crafting the Ghost Yarn in V Rising. However, it is not easier said than done as you will be required to beat two bosses and one out of these two is a level 60 boss in the game. After that, you will be required to collect two unique items to begin the crafting process, which is usually not hard to find.
The Ghost Yarn method is a little longer than farming Ghost Yarn. However, once you are done with the entire process, you will have a steady supply of this valuable end-game item that otherwise is hard to obtain in V Rising.
So, grind your gears, level up your character, and slay the two bosses we have listed below. Before reading further, consider reading V Rising Research Desk and Blood Essence guide as they help you run your castle.
Ancient Village To East of Cursed Forest
As mentioned above that, you can obtain Ghost Yarn in the game at two locations, and the first one that you need to look at is in the Cursed Forest. This place is located on the Northside of the game’s map. Once you are at the Cursed Forest location in V Rising, you will come across two Ancient Villages: East of the Cursed Forest and to its West as well.
Now, both villages are not exactly far from each other, and you can pretty much go back and forth between them to plunge all crates or chests, kill enemies and basically devour everything that moves in front of you.
You will need to repeat this process of killing and looting chests to increase your chances of dropping Ghost Yarn in V Rising. There is no guarantee that each kill or loot from chests will give you the valuable item you are eyeing, but the chances are there for Ghost Yarn to drop.
Ancient Village West of Cursed Forest
Assuming you have roamed, killed, and looted every single thing you could find in the Ancient village to the East of Cursed Forest, now to the Ancient Village located at the west of Cursed Forest.
Once you are there, repeat the entire process of killing enemies, opening loot chests and crates, and collecting any collectible that you see on enemies.
After you are done with the Ancient Village to the west of Cursed Forest, you must go back to the first Ancient Village, and the distance is decent enough for the enemies and loot chests to respawn back.
Now, you must repeat the entire process again here and then go back to Ancient Village west of Cursed Forest once again. Rinse and repeat this routine, and you will have a decent chance of farming Ghost Yarn in V Rising.
This farming route will consume a lot of your time, and you may think that it is not worth it, but you must know that there is currently no other way to farm Ghost Yarn in the game.
Besides, you will also get more XP and get the hang of combat while killing enemies in both Ancient Villages while carrying out the farm routine.
Ghost Yarn Crafting Recipe in V Rising
- Now that you have learned what it is like to farm for Ghost Yarn in the game, and if that is not your forte, then you can go with the crafting recipe route in V Rising. To craft the Ghost Yarn item in the game, you will need to acquire first the crafting recipe, which is not a one-check mark task thing that you can pull off in a single go.
Basically, you will need to defeat Beatrice and Ungora bosses in V Rising so as to unlock the complete Ghost Yarn recipe and start crafting this item without wasting time.
How To Craft Ghost Yarn
Defeating Beatrice may seem like an optional step as it does not directly unlock the Ghost Yarn crafting recipe for you. However, you obtain the Cotton Yarn crafting recipe after beating Beatrice, which is one out of the two ingredients required to craft the Ghost Yarn item in V Rising.
The second ingredient that you will require to craft Ghost Yarn in the game is the Ghost Shroom. Getting the shroom item is relatively easy as you will need to farm it by visiting the Ancient Villages, and you can pretty much obtain it easily. You can also acquire Ghost Shrooms as an item drop from the witches of the Cursed Forest region of V Rising
So, to sum up, the process of how to craft Ghost Yarn in V Rising, you basically need the following two items:
- Ghost Yarn Recipe= Cotton + Ghost Shroom
Defeating Beatrice For Loom & Cotton Yarn
Beatrice runs a tailor shop in Dawnbreak Village, and the villagers there are comfortable with her sewing expertise. This is also one of the many reasons that this boss fight has minion summons, as you will deal with not only Beatrice but also her minion as well.
Starting with Beatrice, the Tailor, she is relatively an easy boss in V Rising. However, she is a level 38 boss, and you will need to level up at par to make the boss fight an easy win. Otherwise, you will have a hard time defeating Beatrice in the game.
Unlike most bosses in V Rising, when you fight with Beatrice, she will not attack you directly. However, she will run away a lot and will lure you into the mob, which are a lot in numbers, and focusing on the mob first and Beatrice later is the key to defeating this boss easily.
However, you can not just ignore the main target here and clear out the mob, as Beatrice will summon more if you keep wiping all. So, you must strike a perfect balance between hitting a ranged attack at Beatrice and melee with the mob. This way, you will slowly drain the boss’s health as well as will be able to do crowd control. Read our V Rising Weapons Tier List and see which is the best in the game.
Assuming you have triumphed over the crowd of Dawnbreak Village and managed to beat Beatrice in V Rising, now you will be rewarded with some of the best crafting materials in V Rising.
Rewards for Defeating Beatrice
- Vampire Power: Human Form
- Structure: Loom and Assortment of Curtains
- Recipe: Hunter’s Cloak, Cloth, and Cotton Yarn
Now that you have defeated Beatrice and acquired Loom Structure and Cotton recipe: the two most important items for crafting Ghost Yarn in V Rising. It is time you must also defeat the spider boss Ungora in the game and progress further crafting process.
First, you will need to locate the boss, and for that, you will need to go to Spider Cave in northeast Cursed Forest. Once you are there, you will find Ungora, The Spider Queen, at the center of the forest in the location we listed.
Similar to Beatrice, Ungora too will spawn minions, but they will be much harder to deal with as compared to the human minions that Beatrice spawns. Typically, while fighting Ungora in V Rising, she will spawn spiderlings once her health is depleted by more than 25%. This is just our observation during the boss fight, and it may or may not be the case.
Ungora does range attacks by sending waves of spider venom projectiles, while hen minions mostly will try to get in range to you and deal with melee attacks.
Ungora will also throw a large AoE venom bombs that will continue damaging you if you stay in the AoE circle. Dodging this attack will not be a problem as it is pretty slow.
Also, if you stay for too long near Ungora, the spide will jump in the air and will deal with a slam attack which has a larger AoE circle. Dodging this one shouldn’t be a problem as you can see the attack easily by the circle forming around the spider queen.
The trick here is to maintain your distance from spiderlings and focus on dealing with ranged attacks at Ungora. Also, you will get a small window of opportunity to deal two to three melee chain attacks on Ungora.
Once you are done with the spider queen boss, you will be rewarded the vampire power to summon your very own spiderling and also get the recipe of Ghost Yarn.
Rewards for Defeating Ungora
- Vampire Power: Volatile Arachnid
- Recipe: Ghost Yarn, Silk, and Spiderling
Collect Cotton Yarn and Ghost Shrooms To Craft Ghost Yarn
Now that you have all the necessary crafting recipes acquired after defeating Beatrice and Ungora boss, it is time you get down to crafting Ghost Yarn in V Rising. However, you will need at least 4 Cotton Yarn and 8 Ghost Shrooms to craft one Ghost Yarn.
Just go to your crafting bench and start the process of making each Ghost Yarn will roughly take three minutes of time that can be spent passively.
That is pretty much everything you need to know about farming and crafting Ghost Yarn in V Rising. Did you farm this item, or have you been crafting it so far? Let us know more of your thoughts in the comments section below.
