In total, we’ll be looking at a total of 13 loot spot locations across all the zones of V Rising. Each of these zones will provide either one essential resource or even multiple. So, feel free to use the Table of Contents below if a particular spot is near your base or run, or if you need a specific type of resource.

Location #1 – Bandit Encampment in Farbane (Whetstone)

The first loot spot we’ll be looking at in V Rising is a particular Bandit Stronghold in Farbane. This area is great if you’re just starting a run and require Whetstone.

You’ll find plenty of Whetstone in the Chests here. Additionally, you can even find Whetstone as loot off the enemies here. So, if you’re looking for Whetstone to make Merciless Copper Weapons, this spot is ideal. All you need to do is make a quick pass through here and you have everything you need.

Location #2 – Gleaming Shadows in Farbane (Blood Roses)

Another loot spot in Farbane that deserves a shout out is Gleaming Shadows. This is because you can find a lot of Blood Roses here. A great spot to go to if you are in dire need of making some potions in V Rising.

You can easily get about x300 Blood Roses with one run through this area. Just make sure to avoid Polora the Feywalker here!

Location #3 – Dunley Lumber Mill (Reinforced Planks / Copper Ingots)

The Lumber Mill in Dunley is a popular loot spot to go to for many V Rising veterans. This is because you can find a lot of good early stage materials here. You can even come here at the start of your run if you’re feeling particularly wild!

When you come here, make sure to avoid all the enemies. Instead, go inside houses and rush to loot the containers. You can basically get all the planks and copper ingots you need for your Starter Weapons and Refinement Stations.

In summary, you can find the following early stage materials in this zone:

Location #4 – Church of the Damned in Dunley (Scourgestone / Grave Dust / Glass)

Next up, we have the Church of the Damned in the Dunley zone. You can find a lot of Scourgestone in particular here from the Chests in this area. So, if you’re looking to get the Scourgestone Pendant in V Rising, a good run here can give you all the materials you need.

Additionally, you can find a lot of Glass here – both in the Chests and the various breakables in the area. Finding a spot that gives glass consistently is difficult in V Rising, especially in the early stages. So, this will help you out quite a lot.

As a result, you can find the following early stage materials in V Rising in this location:

  • Scourgestone
  • Glass
  • Grave Dust

However, a problem with this area is that there are a lot of enemies. So, if you’re looking to make a quick run, you’ll find a lot of enemies getting aggressive with you.

We recommend that you run past them and navigate to the small crevice shown below behind the Church. Once you get here, the enemies will drop their aggro and you’ll be safe. After that, you can start looting and return here if there are too many enemies on your tail again.

Location #5 – Witch Hut / Lair of the Behemoth / Nest of the Curse Weaver in Cursed Forest (Ghost Shrooms)

If you’re struggling to find Ghost Shrooms in V Rising, we have a collection of locations next to each other that you’ll find very useful. You can find them in the Cursed Forest Zone.

Lair of the Behemoth in V Rising.

You can find Ghost Shrooms by killing Witches in Witch Huts fairly easily. There are quite a few in the Nest of the Curse Weaver as well.

However, the Lair of the Behemoth is by far the best location for Ghost Shrooms. In the Gorecrusher’s arena, start navigating around the borders. You’ll be able to find so many Ghost Shrooms growing there. You can easily farm them without getting the Gorecrusher to aggro on you.

Location #6 – Gloomrot Farms in Gloomrot South (Silver / Mutant Grease / Tier 2 Materials)

As you progress through your run on V Rising, you’ll need to get a bunch of Tier 2 materials. For this, we recommend heading to the two Gloomrot Farms that you can find in the Gloomrot South zone.

There are plenty of houses here that have a lot of containers. Keep an eye out as many of the containers here can blend into the environment. They are very small but will typically have a lot of good materials that you need once you’ve established yourself during your run.

So, you can find a lot of Silver from these containers. Additionally, there is a lot of Mutant Grease that you can obtain here as well.

However, since there is a lot of Mutant Grease here, you’ll come across a lot of Mutants fighting other enemies. So, be careful and make sure that you do not spend too long looting when you enter a house. Otherwise, you might get cornered.

Location #7 – Pools of Rebirth / Rustlock Village in Gloomrot South (Mutant Grease)

You can also find two really good loot spots next to each other in Gloomrot South. This is the Pools of Rebirth and Rustlock Village.

This is a large area where there are multiple battles going on between Mutants and Humans in V Rising. As the Mutants die, they’ll drop a lot of Mutant Grease. So, all you need to do is do a quick run through these two zones.

Make sure you do not stop and just start picking all the Mutant Grease you can get your hands on! Also, we recommend you check out our guide on Farming Mutant Grease.

Location #10 – Brighthaven Square (General High Value Loot)

Brighthaven Square is a huge area in V Rising that is teeming with all sorts of loot. It is an incredibly farming area popular among V Rising veterans that you can find in the Silverlight zone too. A great way to get in here is through the hole in the wall near the Northern entrance.

After that, you should try and stay away from patrols as much as possible. That means sticking to the alleys and small buildings as much as possible. You can also come here if you need to escape patrols in case they spot you.

The first spot where you can find a lot of loot is in the breakable objects. Just break them and start picking up everything you can. You’ll be able to accumulate an insane amount of really valuable loot this way.

Some of the materials that you can get just from breakables in this area are:

  • Iron
  • Copper Ingots
  • Reinforced Planks
  • Glass.

Besides that, you can also come across many Gold Chests. These have even more valuables in them that’ll help you out on your run. You can do this run as early as Level 10, but we would recommend that you wait until you’re Level 20 or 30.

If you do manage to get caught by patrols here there are quite a few strategies that you can use to escape or lose aggro.

Here are some of these strategies:

  • Use obstacles in the area to block enemies line of sight
  • Use peers near docks to hide as enemies above will not be able to notice you
  • Hide in bushes near the Stables in Rat Form
  • Jump across the river or down cliffs to lose enemies
  • Go into dark alleys and corners.

Finally, there is also a shortcut location you can use to get to the Stables in Brighthaven Square. We have it drawn out for you in the image below from the Southern face of the Brighthaven Square.

It’ll allow you to avoid any patrols and get in quickly without alerting anyone.

Location #11 – Brighthaven Cathedral in Silverlight (Gold Chains / Jewels / Schematics)

The final loot spot for the Silverlight zone is actually accessible through Brighthaven Square. You can get here quickly through the Northern entrance of Brighthaven Square – where the hole is.

Brighthaven Cathedral in V Rising.

From here, you will be going straight up the stairs and navigating around from the right side of the cathedral. As you do so, you’ll come across various mobs of enemies who’ll start chasing you.

While this happens, run around from the right side all the way to the left. Make sure to take a note of all the Chests you see as you run. You’ll be coming to these later.

As you go around to the right side, you’ll come across a dead end. On the left side, you’ll see a small fence. Jump over this fence and immediately all the enemies chasing you will lose interest.

Now you can jump over and head inside the Cathedral for the loot. Additionally, you can also go to the Chests you kept note of and immediately loot them. And if too many enemies get aggroed on you, immediately return to the fence.

You’ll be able to get the following items:

  • Gold Chains
  • Jewels
  • Schematics.

Once you have all the loot you need, you can escape the location easily by jumping from the nearby cliffs.

As these enemies are killed, you’ll come across a lot of loot which consists of various Recipes, Bat Hides and so on.
