How Blood Essence Works in V Rising

Blood Essence is a key resource that you will need in your V Rising journey. You will need plenty of Blood Essence orbs in your inventory to survive in V Rising.

Blood Essence will power crafting tools like Sawmill and protect your Castle from decaying as well. It is the main item from many things in V Rising, like crafting and building pieces, so you should start collecting it from the very start of the game.

If you take damage, you will start losing blood, lowering your blood pool. To replenish your blood, you have to hunt down enemies and fill your blood pool.

The only thing you will need to be careful of if fighting a group of enemies is to make sure you take out all of them. Once you have taken out all of them then, you can start feeding on their blood, and no one will attack you.
