V Rising Leather: Crafting, Keely Boss, & Rewards

Our V Rising Leather guide entails the best and fastest methods to acquire leather in the game and continue building important items.

Knowing your resources in a survival game like V Rising is good. The game heavily depends on acquiring resources such as farming Ghost Yarn, Scales, Cotton, and more to proceed further and level up.

The game has many different types of resources and advanced variations that are extremely valuable. One such resource is V Rising Leather, a basic necessity in the early game. The advanced variation of leather is pristine leather.

Key Highlights

Pristine Leather is a valuable resource that can be crafted using Pristine Hide and Fish Oil. Here are the quick steps:

  1. Get Pristine Hide from werewolves in Dunley Farmlands.
  2. Gather Fish Oil from fishing spots or craft it with The Devourer.
  3. Combine Pristine Hide and Fish Oil to craft Pristine Leather.
  4. Use Pristine Leather for castle upgrades and crafting armor.
  5. Build a Tannery in your castle; blueprint drops from Keely the Frost Archer in Eastern Farbane Woods.

What is Leather in V Rising

Leather is one of the most essential materials in V Rising. You need to get leather early on by crafting it. This material is critical as you’ll need it to upgrade your Castle Heart and first crossbow.

You will also need leather to craft clothing items and armor at the Simple Workbench. Leather will help you make the Copper Castle Key. Before you build leather, you must make a tannery and get its recipe first in V Rising.

How To Craft Leather

To get leather in V Rising, you must first complete the game’s tutorial and unlock Blood Altar. 

  1. Unlock the Blood Altar by completing the tutorial and the “Getting Ready for the Hunt” quest, requiring gear at level 15 or above.

  2. Use the Blood Altar to track Keely the Frost Archer, a level 20 boss located in the Bandit Trapper Camp in Farbane Woods.
  3. Defeat Keely to obtain the leather crafting recipe, Traveler’s Wrap recipe, Empty Canteen, and unlock the Tannery blueprint.

  4. Set up a Tannery in your castle using 8 Wooden Planks and 160 Animal Hides, obtained by killing animals throughout the game.
  5. Collect animal hides and use the Tannery to craft leather. 16 Animal Hides are needed to craft 1 leather.
  6. Use the crafted leather to upgrade your gear and Castle Heart, essential for powering various structures within your castle and preventing decay.

Now that we have acquired a tannery, it is just a matter of collecting animal hides and turning them into leather by using the tannery. 16 Animal hides equal to 1 leather. 

Now you can use this leather to level up your gear and Castle Heart, which serves as the Blood-powered battery, providing energy for various structures within the castle’s interior and preventing the decay of its integral foundations, which makes it one of the most essential items in V Rising.

You will have acquired the Leather recipe and the Tannery Blueprint by now. Thus now you can proceed further into the vampiric lore and level up even more.

This brings us to the end of the V Rising Leather Crafting Guide. Currently, V Rising is a storming sensation taking vampiric horror games to the next level each day. More gamers join in to experience this sensation firsthand by themself.
