Best Support/Healer Ultimate Abilities 

There are two best ultimate abilities that we think most of the players will use to dominate enemies and bosses in the game. The two of these vampire ULT abilities not only damage your target but also regenerate your lost health. 

Crimson Beam

V Rising Ultimate Abilities

Magic School Class Type Cooldown How To Acquire
Blood Ultimate Ability Channel 150 secs Defeat Raziel The Sheperd

When triggering the Crimson Beam ultimate, your character shoots a manually aimed red beam at enemies. The beam lasts briefly, dealing 150% magic damage to single or multiple targets and healing your vampire for 100% of spell power for four seconds upon hitting enemies, providing 25% healing per target.

Crimson Beam’s advantage in V Rising is reduced reliance on the blood pool or healing items for health restoration. If your blood pool grants passive buffs, you can use Crimson Beam instead of consuming blood to regain health.

Location

You will need to extract V Blood from Raziel, The Shephard boss. He is a level 60 boss, so you can unlock this ability during mid to late game. If you don’t know where to find Raziel The Shephard in V Rising, then visit Dunley Monastery, and you will find him at the far end of this place.

Heart Strike

Blood Ultimate Ability Dash 150 secs Defeat Willfred The Werewolf Chief

Heart Strike is another top-tier support or healer ultimate ability, as when triggered, your character dashes forward and strikes enemies in a singular direction. If the attack connects with a target, the enemy will be dealt 150% magic damage. 

Additionally, your character will be healed for 150% of your spell power, and the health regeneration lasts for the next 3.5 seconds. When the healing effect completes, a blood nova erupts near you that deals 150% magic damage to the target and nearby enemies as well.

So, the reason I think Heart Strike’s ultimate ability is one of the best powers in V Rising is that not only does it strike a target to deal damage, but it heals you and makes an AoE attack at the very end.

Location

You must defeat Willfred, the Werewolf Chief, located on the North side of Dunley Farmlands. This location is the last stop before entering the Cursed Forest.

Best AoE Ultimate Abilities 

AoE basic and ultimate abilities are very useful against fighting a mob or tough enemies that come at you in groups. Luckily, we have shortlisted the two best AoE ultimate vampire powers in V Rising that will unleash havoc on enemies by dealing massive AoE damage. 

Mirror Strike 

V Rising Ultimate Abilities

Magic School Class Type Cooldown Cast Time How To Acquire
Illusion Ultimate Ability Dash 150 secs 0.7 secs Defeat Octavian The Militia Captain

Mirror Strike stands out as V Rising’s premier AoE ultimate, excelling when foes encircle you. Activating this vampire power propels your character forward, delivering a sequence of strikes to a group of enemies.

With Mirror Strike, your character inflicts 600% of your magic damage, divided among all targets, within three seconds, often eliminating or weakening enemies for a final blow. Each strike diminishes the foes’ strength by 30% for five seconds, enabling a 30% damage boost.

While situational, Mirror Strike proves highly effective when executed near a cluster of enemies, especially against larger bosses. In PvP encounters, it hinders invaders, rendering their escape challenging after their travel ability cooldown.

Location

Visit the Bastion of Dunley located in the east of Dunley Farmlands. Once you’re there, you must defeat the village leader, Octavian, the Militia Captain. This is a level 58 boss, and you must at least be at gear score 55 to beat him. Here is an image of the boss’s location.

Merciless Charge

Merciless Charge

Chaos Ultimate Ability Dash 150 secs 0.7 secs Defeat Quincy The Bandit King

Merciless Charge is one of the earliest ultimate abilities in V Rising that you will unlock and may use till you reach mid-game. When you trigger Merciless Charge, your character charges forward in the direction of your choice and deals 125% chaos damage. This unique attack also pushes enemies in front of you and also stuns enemies for 1.5 seconds.

This ultimate is useful against a single or group of enemies if approaching you from a uni-direction. Also, you can use the ultimate ability in PvP, but online players can use the travel ability to dodge or predict the incoming attack. 

Location

Defeat Quincy, The Bandit King, inside the Bandit Stronghold located North of Farbane Woods. However, before approaching Quincy, you must defeat Clive the Firestarter and acquire the Minor Explosive Box recipe. Otherwise, without the explosive device, you will not be able to enter the Bandit Stronghold because it is barged tight by a wooden gate. 

Once you have unlocked the recipe, head toward the Bandit Stronghold location, as shown in the image

Quincy The Bandit King

Quincy the Bandit King is a level 37 boss, so you must have at least a gear score of 34 or above to defeat the boss without much trouble. 

Best DPS Ultimate Abilities

Now that we have learned about the most used AoE and healer ultimate abilities, it is time that you know which two are the best DPS ultimate vampire powers in the game. 

Chaos Barrage

Chaos Barrage

Chaos Ultimate Ability Channel 150 secs 1 sec Defeat Jade, The Vampire Hunter

Chaos Barrage hurls four large Chaos Orbs, dealing 75% magic damage on impact. Chaos Orbs have decent speed and are hard to miss. Additionally, they apply Chaos Burn, dealing another 75% damage over time.

Chaos Barrage excels against slow, large bosses. In PvE, use it as needed. In PvP, strategize by timing it when opponents have travel ability on cooldown for a higher chance of hitting them with at least three Chaos Orbs.

Location

Defeat Jade, The Vampire Hunter. She roams at the center of the Dunley Farmlands map and is a level 62 boss, so you will need to be at least at a gear score of 58 or above.

Frost Vortex

V Rising Ultimate Abilities frost vortex
frost vortex
Magic School Class Type Cooldown Cast Time How To Acquire
Frost Ultimate Ability AoE 150 secs 0.5 secs Defeat The Winged Horror

When you trigger Frost Vortex, your vampire character will jump in the air and land while conjuring a frost storm. This attack causes nearby opponents to be pulled to the storm’s center while getting 100% magic damage.

The Frost Vortex storm lasts six seconds, does 480% total magic damage, and applies a chill status effect on enemies caught in its AoE zone. Its usage must be made wisely as otherwise, you will end up not damaging enemies at all. 

Once again, if you want to use Frost Vortex against vampires in PvP, then make sure you use it when the opponent has exhausted travel speed ability usage. After that, anticipate or predict the opponent’s movement and trigger the ultimate ability accordingly. 

Location

Defeat the Winged Horror, which is one of the end-game bosses. This is a level 78 boss, so you will need to have at least a gear score of 75 or above to be able to defeat it. 

Other than that, you cannot just walk up to the arena of this boss and fight. You must have a vampire power to help you scale heights, such as the bat form. Once you have that, you can go to the far east of Farbane Woods.

Best PvP Ultimate Abilities

Now that we have listed some of the best AoE, DPS, and healer or support types of ultimate abilities, you must learn about the PvP ones as well. You can use the six above-mentioned ultimate abilities for PvP as well.

Arctic Leap

V Rising Ultimate Abilities frost vortex

Magic School Class Type Cooldown How To Acquire
Frost Ultimate Ability Leap 150 secs Defeat Terrorclaw The Ogre

When you trigger the Arctic Leap, your vampire character jumps into the air and lands on a place you specify while triggering the attack. All enemies caught in the strike range of this ultimate attack will take 225% magic damage.

Additionally, an ice nova appears from the point of impact that freezes enemies in PvE for six seconds. While playing PvP, the enemy vampires are frozen for three seconds instead of six in PvE. The best time to use Arctic Leap in PvP will be when your opponent has used the travel speed and can no longer escape or dodge your attacks faster.

Location

Defeat Terrorclaw, the Ogre. He is located south of Hallowed Mountains, and here is an image of the location to find the boss faster.

Volatile Arachnid

V Rising Ultimate Abilities volatile arachnid

Magic School Class Type Cooldown Charges How To Acquire
Unholy Ultimate Ability Summon 150 secs 4 Defeat Ungora, The Spider Queen

Volatile Arachnid is best for PvP and PvE scenarios as well. When you trigger this ultimate, you can cast up to three spiderlings that will run after your target, either enemies in PvE or attackers in PvP, and will explode. 

Each spiderling explosion deals 100% magic damage and spews a toxic fume in a small AoE circle. Whenever an enemy or PvP vampire online player comes in contact with these toxic fumes, they get 20% magic damage every 0.8 seconds. The toxic fume effect also slows down opponents by 25%. 

Even though your PvP online vampire attacker is smart and dodges the explosion of spiderlings, you can use the toxic fumes to your advantage, and hurl ranged attacks at enemies. You can use this as a decisive technique to lure your opponent in and take damage. 

Location

Head to the Cursed Forest and defeat Ungora, the Spider Queen. She is a level 60 boss, and you should have a gear score of level 58 or above to beat this boss without much trouble. 

That is pretty much everything you need to know about the best support, AoE, DPS, and PvP ultimate abilities in V Rising. Which one is your favorite Ultimate in PvE and PvP? Let us know more of your thoughts in the comment section below.
