So, this is the case in V Rising as the same weak spots are there in the world of V Rising as well. You have to be careful around certain areas and watch out for sunlight in the morning.
In this guide, we are going to cover the famous vampire weakness Garlic. In the world of V Rising after, you’ve made your way through the Farbane Woods the starting region of the game. You can go to explore either way and make your castle where ever you feel it. There is a region called Dunley Farmlands. There are a lot of farms and houses in this region. They are protecting the farms and themselves from vampires by using garlic on their properties. All the players playing the first time and going through the region will get confused when they get the Garlic Exposure. You can check on the top of the House gates and farm gates and you will find Garlic hanging there.
How to Remove Garlic Debuff
Garlic Exposure doesn’t stay at a point but it will increase in points, the max point being 100. As long as you stay Exposed to the Garlic the Garlic Exposure points start to increase and it can get to a 100 max. The Garlic Exposure debuff will increase the damage taken by 1 % with each point.
