V Rising

All Blood Types and Quality Effects

By
Scott Peers

This page details an overview for all blood types in V Rising, including the Blood Quality percentage and the Blood Tier associated with specific effects for the Creature, Worker, Scholar, Warrior, Rogue, and Brute blood types. We’ll also cover how to use the Blood Pool and how to detect different blood types of nearby enemies without engaging in combat.

Blood Pool and How to Detect Blood Types

How to Maintain the Blood Pool

The Blood Pool is at the heart of what it means to be a vampire in V Rising. You’ll always have access to view your own Blood Pool, at the bottom centre of your screen. Here you can hover over the pool to check the Blood Type, Blood Quality / Tier, and the effects of the particular type of blood that you consumed most recently (between Creature, Worker, Scholar, Warrior, Rogue, and Brute). The Blood Pool also provides a visual cue of how much blood you have left before you run out, and you can hover over the pool to see the exact amount, measured in litres.

The only way to maintain the Blood Pool is by consuming the blood of living creatures and humanoids. Any blood type or quality will be sufficient to keep you alive, and to maintain your health. So long as you have blood in the pool, you’ll slowly regenerate health while out of combat. When you’re in combat, you won’t regenerate any health, which is indicated by the HP in the bottom left of the screen, just above the quickslot bar. Each time you use a specific Vampire Power such as Wolf Form, Bear Form, Human Form or Dominating Presence, blood will be consumed, so you’ll need some blood in the pool to use them. You can also use Expose Vein, allowing allies to feed from your blood pool to replenish their own, or Blood Mend, allowing you to heal yourself from the blood pool.

Aside from these basic heals and potions, the only other ways to refill the Blood Pool is by consuming specific items which contain the most basic form of blood, known as “Frailed”. This will occur whenever you consume things like Tainted Hearts or Rats, with each item consumed providing only a small amount of blood. You should avoid doing this wherever possible, since Frailed blood provides no buffs, but it can still be useful as a last resort to restore your Blood Pool in an emergency.

How to Use Different Blood Types

The type of blood that you choose to use will depend entirely on your playstyle and circumstantial objectives, but there are clearly objective benefits for specific actions within the blood type effects. You should always consider the blood type that you might need not only for a particular task, but also when approaching boss fights with a specific strategy in mind. If you want to maintain a pool of high quality blood of a specific type, you’ll need to hunt throughout Vardoran to find it first. Once you run out, there’s no guarantee that you’ll find an enemy with the same type or quality, so make the most of it while you can.

You’ll notice from the tables below that different blood types are useful for specific playstyles or tasks. For example, if you’re someone who enjoys focusing on spells in combat, the Scholar blood type is most suited to you. If you prefer melee combat, the Warrior or Brute blood types become most useful. If you want to combine melee combat with ranged combat (such as sword and crossbow, for example), you might consider the Rogue blood type best suited to your playstyle. The Creature blood type is generally good for travelling over long distances, since it provides a speed buff and increased sun resistance, allowing you to evade the burning effects of the sun for longer. However, the Worker blood type becomes more appealing if you’re just out to gather resources such as lumber, stone, or metal ores, and it also provides a speed buff when you’re mounted.

How to Use the Blood Hunger Vampire Power

In the early stages of the game, the only way to see the blood quality of a creature or humanoid is by hovering over them with your cursor. This will only show you the blood quality percentage, and not the blood type. However, once you kill Tristan the Vampire Hunter, you will gain access to the Blood Hunger Vampire Power, which allows you to see the blood quality percentage of all nearby creatures or humanoids, and also provides an indication of the blood type based on a small icon to the left of the percentage. The icon will reveal whether the blood type is of a Creature, Worker, Scholar, Warrior, Rogue, or Brute, and since the general appearance of each type of enemy is fairly intuitive, it won’t take long to learn which icon is associated with a particular blood type.
