V Rising

V Rising Chaos Ability List

Ben Chard

Combat plays a significant role in V Rising, and to aid you in that endeavor are the plethora of spells that you can learn, all with their own playstyles. This page will give you an overview of all of the Chaos Abilities in V Rising.

Merciless Charge is one of the Chaos Ultimate Abilities in V Rising.

Chaos Ability Effects

The Chaos category of spells in V Rising are mostly themed around dealing as much damage as possible. This makes them some of the better abilities in the game when it comes to taking on bosses, with arguably the best basic ability in the game. You’ll also often inflict Chaos Burn on most of your targets which is a useful damage over time effect.

Chaos Travel Ability

Icon Name Description Location
VeilofChaosSkillsVRising.png Veil of Chaos Dash towards input direction and elude nearby enemies for 2.2s. Your next melee attack deals 25% bonus damage. Can be recasted once more to spawn a second illusion. Your illusions explode, dealing 50% magic damage to nearby enemies Defeat Clive the Firestarter (30)

Veil of Chaos

Veil of Chaos is by far the best Travel Ability in terms of getting around the battlefield. As you progress further into V Rising, you’ll notice that a lot of the bosses have the ability to get across the battlefield quickly or are so large that their attacks cover a wide range. Veil of Chaos allows you to do a second dash after your first, allowing you squeeze a little more distance between you and your foe. On top of that, it’ll also explode, dealing some damage to anyone who happens to be in close proximity to the illusion left behind.

Chaos Basic Abilities

Icon Name Description Location
AftershockSkillsVRising.png Aftershock Smash the ground, causing a shockwave that erupts, dealing 100% magic damage in a line and inflicting Chaos Burn Defeat Errol the Stonebreaker (20)
ChaosBarrierSkillsVRising.png Chaos Barrier Increase movement speed by 10% and block melee and projectile attacks in front of you for 2s. Blocking an attack launches a projectile towards the attacker dealing 75% damage, pushing the target towards you and inflicting Chaos Burn Defeat Quincey the Bandit King (37)
ChaosVolleySkillsVRising.png Chaos Volley Launches 2 chaos bolts in a sequence that deals 125% magic damage and inflicts Chaos Burn Defeat Lidia the Chaos Archer (26)
PowerSurgeSkillsVRising.png Power Surge Remove all negative effects and apply a shield on a target ally or self that shields the target for 125% of your spell power. Increase movement speed by 25% and attack speed by 25% while the shield lasts Defeat Azariel the Sunbringer (68)
VoidSkillsVRising.png Void Summon an orb that explodes at the target location, dealing 70% magic damage and inflicting Chaos Burn Defeat Morian the Stormwing Matriarch (68)


Aftershock is one of the earlier Area of Effect (AoE) abilities in the game and it remains a useful one for large periods of it. The range is good on it and it will also inflict Chaos Burn on any targets that it hits in the process, dealing more damage over time as a result of the initial damage.

Chaos Barrier

This is another shield ability that will block attacks and projectiles which is always useful. This version of those shields will reflect a projectile back at the attacker for some damage and inflict Chaos Burn, making it a useful shield in PvP especially provided you can get used to the timing.

Chaos Volley

You’ll earn this ability early in the game and it’s arguably the best basic ability in the game. When used, you will fire two Chaos Fireballs that will be based on your mouse cursor dealing large damage that scales with your spell power meaning it will pack a punch at endgame too. To add to the carnage, it will also inflict Chaos Burn on all those it hits, dealing damage over time too. You should always save a spot for this spell.

Power Surge

There are many useful shield-based spells in V Rising, and this one comes rather late in the game but is incredibly useful once you get it. When used, you’ll gain a short movement speed buff along with an attack speed buff. On top of that, you’ll also get the usual shield based on your spell power and you’ll be able to cast it on any ally. This works well as another tool to evade attacks later in the game when your Travel Ability is on cooldown as the movement speed is incredibly useful.


This is an ability comes rather late and by that point, there are far better choices for your hotbar. When used, you’ll drop an orb at your target location that will explode, dealing damage to an area of effect. It can be useful for add phases in boss battles should you decide to go with this.

Chaos Ultimate Abilities

Icon Name Description Location
CrimsonBarrageSkillsVRising.png Chaos Barrage Launch 4 Chaos Orbs that deal 75% magic damage on direct hit, 75% magic damage to enemies in an area and inflicts Chaos Burn. Defeat Jade the Vampire Hunter (62)
MercilessChargeSkillsVRising.png Merciless Charge Charge forward and grab an enemy dealing 125% magic damage, and push them in front of you. Deal 100% magic area damage and inflicts a Stun lasting 1.5s when reaching maximum range or when colliding with another enemy or object Defeat Quincey the Bandit King (37)

Chaos Barrage

This is a simple one to explain, it’s all the goodness of Chaos Volley but doubled. Instead of two fireballs, you’ll sling four fireballs that will hit over a wider area, all inflicting Chaos Burn too. It may seem boring for an ultimate, but the Chaos fireball spells are great for dealing out damage and having another source of it doesn’t hurt.

Merciless Charge

This is the first Ultimate you’ll earn in V Rising and it’s a fine enough one for dealing stun and moderate damage to enemies in a line. It will also work against some bosses too which adds a bit more to its usefulness. Ultimately though, there’s better Ultimate abilities out there for this slot.
