The Secrets of Gloomrot update of V Rising has a number of changes and additions to the game and one of the new additions was the two new weapon types. Players will now be able to unlock Greatword and Pistols in the game which can change the playstyle of the game completely. Like the rest of the weapons in the game, both of the new weapons have two unique abilities that can cause great damage to the enemies.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the Greatsword in V Rising.
How to Get the Greatsword in V Rising
The Greatsword is a new weapon type in V Rising that players can get by defeating a V Blood named “Tristan the Vampire Hunter”. He is a Level 44 boss that can be found roaming around in the Farbane Woods region. His roaming region is quite big but he can be found mostly in the eastern side of the Farbane Woods. When you cross him in his path, you need to defeat him and drink his V Blood to unlock the recipe for Greatsword.
Once you have unlocked the recipe, make sure that you also have unlocked the Iron and Smithy workstation. It is because the recipe can only be crafted at the smithy workstation and you will be needing the following resources.
- 15x Iron Ingot
- 12x Plank
Once you have the resources, go to the workstation and select the Greatsword to craft it. It will take 48 Seconds for the Greatsword to be crafted and after that, it is all yours.
The Greatsword Abilities in V Rising
The Greatsowrd has the following two abilities.
- Great Cleaver: By pressing the Q Button, your character will use the Great Cleaver ability that will allow you to dash in the forward direction and swing the greatsword in an upward direction. It will deal 150% Physical Damage in an area and launch enemies into the air for 0.7 Seconds.
- Death From Above: By pressing the E Button, your character will use the Death From Above ability that will allow you to leap into the air and descend upon enemies dealing 100% Physical Damage in an area.
