Greater Blood Essence recipe and crafting methods

We have already made an explanation of the different types blood in V rises, including Blood Essence and Blood Types, but that’s not an exhaustive list of course, but something to start with. Once you get past the opening hours of the game you need to focus on much bigger resources, and of course you collect Greater Blood Essence

Like many of the consumables and tools in V rises, you can get Greater Blood Essence in a number of ways, but if you want to get a lot of Greater Blood Essence, you’ll need the Greater Blood Essence recipe in addition to these other ways to collect it. Just read through our guide below and be sure to check out our V rises beginner tips if you’re just starting out.

Plundering Greater Blood Essence – V Rising

Of course, the easiest way to obtain Greater Blood Essence early is by looting it. Just as enemies in the early game drop a lot of Blood Essence, stronger enemies will start dropping Greater Blood Essence. If you want to farm with this method, you have to target enemies that are above level 30 or even higher† Quite a challenge if you are just getting started.

Creating a Greater Blood Essence with Unsullied Hearts – V Rising

This is a little easier. Unsullied Hearts are a fairly rare item that you drop by enemies early on, but it can happen. You can grind up bosses or waves of smaller enemies and pick up Unsullied Hearts over time.

By default, you can set your Blood pressure – that’s your blood refinement device – to turn four untainted hearts to a single Greater Blood essence. This is one of the best early ways to get Greater Blood Essence, but because Unsullied Hearts is a rare drop, it’s an inefficient way to grind for them.

Obtaining Greater Blood Essence Recipe – V Rising

If you want as much Greater Blood Essence as possible, you’ve got the Recipe for greater blood essence† This item allows you to use the Blood Press to convert 200 Blood Essence to a single Greater Blood essence. This sounds like a bad deal, but by the time you can unlock this recipe, you’ll probably have thousands of Blood Essence in stock.

To receive the Greater Blood Essence recipe, you must defeat Tristan the Vampire Hunter† That’s a menacing name, and well deserved as it is level 46† You’ll need more than a handful of hours of gameplay to take him out, but once you’re near that level, consider hunting down Tristan and getting the Greater Blood Essence recipe for yourself. Use the Blood Altar to locate him and take him out.
