How To Get Servants In V Rising

You can use Servants to defend your castle or go out for supplies. This guide on How To Get Servants In V Rising will walk you through the process of recruiting Servants so that you’re able to have some help farming some materials or you can assign them to defend your castle if it gets attacked.

Having NPC’s alongside you is getting more and more common in the survival genre. Games like Age of Conan executed the feature perfectly, allowing players to unlock new recipes and crafting options through the recruitment of slaves. It’s a similar system in V Rising in that each person you recruit is unique. They have different stats, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses, so over time, you’ll be recruiting a lot of Servants.

How To Get Servants In V Rising

If you want to get Servants you need to follow the “story”, the objectives in the upper left corner of the screen. Eventually, you will get the quest that tasks you with building a Servant Coffin. Once the Coffin is built you will get the Army of Darkness quest, which tasks you with using Dominating Presence to covert a human into a Servant.

To do this, you need to head out into the world and find any human enemy. They can be any level. The first one I recruited was a Skull rating, so higher level enemies can be captured. When you approach your target press CTRL and highlight Dominating Presence. You then need to use the R ability to launch the Dominating Presence spell.

It’s not a guarantee and it can take a few tries but eventually, the human will fall under your spell. They will then follow you. Head back to your castle and interact with the Servant Coffin to have the Servant join your army. Depending on the Servant level and your coffin bonuses, it can take a few hours to break them in.

As the objectives continue you need Cotton Yarn to make the Eye of Twilight. This guide on Where To Get Cotton Yarn In V Rising will tell you everything you need to know on where to find the Cotton you need to make the Cotton Yarn, as well as information on how you unlock the appropriate crafting recipes and stations.
Upgrading your tools from copper is a drawn-out process in V Rising. This guide on How To Upgrade From Copper To Iron Tools In V Rising will explain how you go about the process of building up your tools so that you can reach the next level of items and continue to progress with the objectives and main story missions.
You may have already found Iron but your attack may be too low. This guide on What Level Or Tool Do You Need To Harvest Iron In V Rising will tell you exactly what you need to harvest iron ore because if you check around, there's a lot of incorrect information that states you need the wrong tools.
Early in the game you need Unsullied Hearts to make Greater Blood Essence to progress with the missions. This guide on Where To Farm Unsullied Hearts In V Rising gives you a quick and easy route you can follow to farm a specific animal so that you can get as many Unsullied Hearts as you need in order to progress further into the story and unlock more recipes and blueprints.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
