When it comes to V Rising there are a number of aspects of the game that aren’t the most straightforward leading players to take a little step back to question “am I doing this right?” While the main confusion I had was how to move objects that were already placed in your base, my husband actually struggled with how to plant objects in V Rising.
Though today’s post will be specifically about planting, feel free to let me know if there are any other confusing elements in the game that you would like some tips for, as I realize what I find straightforward isn’t straightforward for some people and vice versa!
Alright, let’s get into it!
HOW TO GET SEEDS FOR PLANTING / WHAT CAN YOU PLANT IN V RISING?
Players will be able to farm seeds from various Flowers around the map as they have a rare chance to drop a seed, though killing mobs like Treants or Bosses will drop seeds and players can also look for various farms around the map.
Note: there are only some bosses and mobs that will do this, but it’s always a great idea to clear a boss multiple times just to farm resources.
Players will need to harvest the crops as they cannot relocate or dismantle them, though players will only have a chance to receive the seeds as they are not guaranteed drops.
When players are on Farms they should also take a look around the area to see if there are any containers. Farm containers tend to have seeds of various types.
Players will also be able to purchase seeds from Merchants, Vendors, Traders or Dealers. I will do a longer post about the various items that these NPCs sell, though the main ones you’re looking for are:
Gavyn the Shady Dealer
Berk the Travelling Trader
Ottar the Merchant
The absolute best way to get seeds in V Rising is to ensure that you regularly visit Farms and plants as there is always a chance to get some seeds. As soon as you have a seed, make sure you plant it in your base even if you are not sure where you are going to place your farm in the future. This is going to raise the chances that you get seeds.
If you’re thinking about moving your Farm, make sure you farm enough seeds to sustain the move as there is only a 75% chance that you will get back a seed when you dismantle your plants. While this is a pretty good statistic, if you have only a single plant in your base, there’s a chance you will no longer have a regular yield of this plant.
HOW DO YOU PLANT IN V RISING?
Planting is quite simple once you have got the right items to do it. Unfortunately, not every item that you can plant is called a Seed and quite frankly, players are going to want to try to “use” any item that they do not recognize or see a recipe for just to test out and see if it is a seed.
When players have confirmed they have a seed they must place it into their hot bar and select the number that it is bound to and then must hover their curser to a grassy spot.
Much like Castle Walls and other buildings players will be able to see the item they’ve selected as a see-through version that will be red if it cannot be placed in that location or blue if it can.
Players must ensure that the area they would like to plant on is completely clear of rocks, trees or vegetation as they will not be able to plant directly on them. As a warning, try not to plant exactly on the edge of your castle’s foundation as this may force you to dismantle the plant if you would like to add more foundation. This is honestly one of the most frustrating things about the game as I have to admit, I had to do it multiple times.
Now, while players can plant directly in the ground, players will want to take some time to fight Polora the Feywalker as she will provide players with Garden Floors. These Floors will ensure that players yield healthy plants and will increase the speed at which plants will grow.
Similar to planting in the grass, players will now be planting in dirt.
