Reaper is a great weapon for defending your castle from the monsters in PVE situations. With the reaper’s swing, you can do huge damage to your foes. However, due to its slow movement, it might not be best against other players.  

General’s Soul Reaper is no ordinary weapon, and it is perhaps the coolest and most powerful weapon that V Rising has. However, it has similar abilities to Merciless iron reaper, but with extra abilities like +6 spell power and +6 spell crit chance. The gear level of the reaper is 18. Regarding the V Rising Secret weapons, this weapon is the most special one.
