The Merchants in V Rising have a wide variety of items available for trade. You can buy items like gem stones, cosmetics, potions, and rare seeds from them in exchange for some Silver or Silver Coins. This guide will discuss the locations of these Merchants and information about Silver Coins and How to Trade in V Rising.
V Rising Merchants Locations
Traders are NPC Merchants in V Rising that provide you with useful items in exchange for a particular number of Silver Coins.
However, suppose you’re looking forward to buying any items from these Merchants. In that case, you must first transform into your human form, considering how humans fear vampires in V Rising and will not interact with you anytime soon if you’re found in your vampire form.
This can be said for every human character in the game, even Traders.
Once you’ve shifted to your human form and found some silver coins, it’s time to find some Merchants. As of now, since V Rising is an Early Access game, you can only find three Merchants. These three Merchants are Berk the Traveling Trader, Ottar the Merchant and Gavyn the Shady Dealer.
Aside from Ottar, the Merchants in V Rising tend to travel around in their area as opposed to staying in one designated spot. This makes finding the Merchants a bit of a tricky task.
Before we dive into their exact Trader Routes, take a look at the map image below to get an idea of the general location of the three Merchants.

Trader Routes Map Locations
Since the Merchants (excluding Ottar) like to roam around their respective regions, you need to learn their Trader Routes to be able to find them without too much trouble. A Trader Route is a set of locations that a Merchant is known to visit frequently, which are usually the intersections that connected different areas of the region.
When you need to visit a Merchant, you can track them by going down their Trader Route and waiting for them to travel past your location.
To help you out with figuring out the Trader Routes of the V Rising Merchants, we’ve prepared some map images which are marked with the Trader Route of each Merchant.
Berk the Traveling Trader Route Map Locations
As his name implies, Berk the Traveling Merchant likes to roam around quite a lot. He can be found roaming around in almost every part of the Dunley Farmlands.

How to Trade in V Rising
Before you can even come close to any trader in V Rising, you must first unlock your human form and then find some Silver Coins, as traders will only provide you with items if you give them Silver Coins.
How to Change into a Human
To change into your human form, you can drink the plant of Beatrice the Tailor. This plant can be found at the Dawnbreak Village.
Once at the Village, kill Beatrice the Tailor to receive the plant. The fight will not last long as Beatrice is a defensive character and will only run away when attacked.
The only offensive attacks you’ll receive will be from the guards she calls to protect her. Deal with them first, then focus on killing Beatrice.
Once you have defeated Beatrice, you’ll get the Human Form vampire power which allows you to transform into a human. While in human form, you’ll be able to roam around in human settlements without being noticed and most importantly, you’ll be able to interact with Merchants.
Do note that the Human Form takes a lot of blood to maintain, so make sure you’re not running low on blood before you transform into a human.
Another thing to keep in mind is that there are some strong-willed humans that can see through your disguise, so some humans may start attacking you even while you’re in this form
Where to find Silver Coins
To find the Silver Coins, simply head over to different villages or bandit camps to find the coins inside chests and cabinets.
However, as you load yourself with Silver Coins, you’ll start dealing damage depending upon how much Silver Coins you’re carrying.
This is due to the Silver Sickness Debuff you get, which can be seen on the screen as your game starts producing silver effects on your screen and your character.
Your enemies can also see this debuff, who can then take advantage of you by attacking you.
To prevent this from happening, simply drink the Silver Resistance potion. These potions can be crafted using the Alchemy table, so if you find yourself with a debuff, make sure to drink a resistance potion before you get attacked by an enemy.
If you don’t have access to Silver Resistance Potions, you can also increase your Silver Resistance by wearing certain Cloaks. The Cloaks which enhance your resistance to Silver are Hermit’s Shawl, Ashfolk Crystal Ice Cloak, Thousand-Stitch Cloak and Hunter’s Cloak.
Upon unlocking your human form and finding Silver Coins, you will become able to trade with Merchants in V Rising.
