V Rising

How to send Servants out for Hunts

By
Matt Chard

This page will cover everything you need to know about Hunts in V Rising, including when you can access them, and how you can manage them.

How to Command a Servant

The first thing you’ll need to send out a servant for a hunt is the Castle Throne. This’ll cost you 24x Stone Bricks, 16x Iron Ingots, and 4x Greater Blood Essences. You can get stone bricks by putting stone into the grinder. You can find out how to mine iron ore here for the Iron Ingots, and here for the Greater Blood Essences.

Once you have the Castle Throne, sit on it, and it’ll bring up the world map. From here, you can click on an area to send your servants who’ll head there and bring back resources found there after the alloted time. The areas that you can send them to all have Power Levels which your servant will need to meet if they’re going to come back safely or even complete the hunt. Note, you’ll have to discover an area first before you can send your servants there.

What are Servant Perks

All the servants you get will come equipped with two perks, the first one will be based on their type, and the second will be based on their faction. If you get a servant from Farbane Woods, its second perk will be “Farbane Hunter”, this will increase the amount of loot secured by 20% if you send them to a location within Farbane Woods. You can find a list of all the current perks below:

How do Hunts work

First things first, you’ll need to equip your servant with the best gear you can craft if you want them to infiltrate the higher areas. This is what the Power Level is for. This determines two things. First, whether your servant will successfully complete the hunt, and second, how likely that they’ll come back with an injury.

Provided you meet the requirements of the hunt, click on an area, and you’ll be meeted with the hunt screen. At the top, it’ll have the name of the area, and a description about it. Below that, you’ll have the recommended perks and the recommended Power Level. A bit further down, you’ll have up to three boxes which have the text “Click to Add”. This is where you’ll place your servants.

Just under that, is a sliding bar which adjusts how long you want to send your servant out for. This is segmented under three colors. The red segment is called “Reckless” because you’ll send them out for the shortest amount of time. The negatives for this is that you’ll get a 30% chance of injury, and -20% success rate for the hunt, so it’s only worth using the reckless option if your servant is way over leveled for that particular hunt.

(1 of 7) When you click an area for a hunt, this screen will appear. All the important information has been circled for your convenience.

The next segment is colored yellow, and doesn’t have a name. This is what you would consider the normal setting. It’ll have an average time duration, but it won’t have any negatives other than 25% chance of injury. The last segment is green, and it’ll be named “Carefully Planned”. This will take the longest duration of time, but you’ll be rewarded with up to a +20% Success Chance, and only 20% chance of injury. One last thing to note, the further the bar is to the right (green segment), the more loot you’ll get at the cost of more time. If you pull the bar all the way to the left (red segment), you’ll get less loot, but it’ll take less time.

Finally, below the segmented bar, you’ll have the “Estimated Loot” section. This’ll show you what loot you’ll get and the approximate amount that your servants will bring back. This changes depending on how many servants you’re sending on the hunts. You’ll even get a Party Bonus Power Level increase. When you’re happy with what you’ve chosen, click on the “Let the Hunt Begin” button to send them on their merry way. You can cancel the hunt at any time by going to the Castle throne and clicking on the area that you sent them too.

Best Servants

As there aren’t any specific predetermined servants roaming Vardoran, your best bet is to choose what you want your servant to do. One thing you can do is pick a human who has a high Blood Quality % of the Blood Type that you need. After that, decide what you require them for. Do you want them to hunt high-level areas? If so, get them from the area that you want to send them too. For example, Cursed Forest has some high-level loot. If you wanted to send the servant primarily there, it’d be in your best interest to head over to Cursed Forest, and charm a human from there. This will increase your loot you get from there by 20%.

As you can see here, a higher Blood Quality translates into higher Expertise. When you do the math of Gear Level x Expertise, youll end up with a stronger servant.

If you’re playing on a PvP server, you may want to have servants that’ll protect you, and your castle. Once again, you’ll need a high Blood Quality %, and the best gear that you can equip them with. For their Blood Type, it’s more situational, Brutes, Rogues, and Warriors all shine in melee for different reasons. Warrior is better for pure damage, Brute has more sustain, and the Rogue can increase the damage they do to your opponent with their Tier IV blood passive. For a more ranged approach, you can use the Scholar Blood Type, they deal some decent damage, but they could be hindered by line of sight.
