V Rising gives players the role of a vampire looking to regain strength while building a castle and dealing with rival or allied vampires. And the best and most direct way to increase your powers is by finding and defeating “V Blood Bosses,” enemies that will allow your vampire to learn new skills and build new structures. This guide will show you where to find each of them and their sweet rewards.
Currently, V Rising has 37 V Blood Bosses scattered throughout Vardoran’s five regions. The list is organized according to enemy levels, from lowest to highest, for a more straightforward progression of which ones to face next.
All V Blood Boss locations
Players can search for bosses in the game with the help of the Blood Altar structure, which shows which bosses you can find and track their locations. It’s also possible to check the rewards for them and a little lore about them. The Blood Altar is not needed to find the bosses, though. Most bosses in V Rising will be found at fixed locations on the map, but some of them can roam around the area.
