V Rising

V Rising Blood Ability List

Ben Chard

Combat plays a significant role in V Rising, and to aid you in that endeavor are the plethora of spells that you can learn, all with their own playstyles. This page will give you an overview of all of the Blood Abilities in V Rising.

Crimson Beam is one of the Blood Ultimate abilities in V Rising.

Blood Ability Effects

The Blood category of spells in V Rising are mostly themed around some form of life leech. Many of these spells have ways of absorbing health from your enemy and passing on to yourself or your allies, making them useful for moments where you’re sustaining a lot of damage in boss fights. There’s also new passives added to the game thanks to the full release, which help to reinforce the fantasy style of the blood. With the Gloomrot update, Blood magic got a change where all Blood spells grant Leech, which is passive health draining and restoring your health. It’s the perfect self-sustaining magic type out there.

Icon Name Description Location
Blood_Spray_Icon.png "Blood Spray" iconBlood Spray (passive) Critical strikes leech 5% health and there is a 25% chance to spawn a Blood Orb when killing a target affected by Leech. Unlocked via the Stygian Altar. Cost 400 "Stygian Shard" iconStygian Shards.
Hunfer_For_Blood_Icon.png "Hunger for Blood" iconHunger for Blood (passive) Increase damage against V Blood enemies by 10% Unlocked at the Altar of Stygian Awakening for 800 Greater "Stygian Shard" iconStygian Shards.
Sanguine_Mastery_Icon.png "Sanguine Mastery" iconSanguine Mastery (passive) Boosts the effects of your current blood type by 8%. Unlocked via the Altar of Stygian Awakening. It costs 1000 Greater "Stygian Shard" iconStygian Shards.

Blood Travel Ability

Icon Name Description Location
Veil_of_Blood_Skills_V_Rising.png Veil of Blood Dash towards input direction and elude nearby enemies for 2.2s. Your next primary attack heals you for 5% of your maximum health and triggers a nova of blood, dealing 20% magic damage and drains 20% health, and inflicts leech. Requires T2 Blood Spell Point, such as one from "Willfred the Werewolf Chief" iconWillfred the Werewolf Chief.

When used, you’ll dash towards your cursor and your next primary attack will deal bonus damage and heal you. It’s fairly good for sustainability use. But all in all, there are far better Travel Abilities in V Rising, especially if you’re looking for damage type movement spells or more utility.

Blood Basic Abilities

Icon Spell Description Location
Blood_Rage_Skills_V_Rising.png "Blood Rage" iconBlood Rage Heal nearby allies for 65% of your spell power, increase attack speed by 25% and movement speed by 10% for 4 seconds. Inflicts Leech on nearby enemies. Defeat "Rufus the Foreman" iconRufus the Foreman for your first tier 1 blood spell point.
Blood_Rite_Skills_V_Rising.png "Blood Rite" iconBlood Rite Block melee and projectile attacks for 1.5s. Blocking an attack triggers a wave of energy that pushes enemies away, dealing 80% magic damage and inflicts Leech. Turn non-material for 1.2s when this effect triggers Default
Sanguine_Coil_Skills_V_Rising.png "Sanguine Coil" iconSanguine Coil Launch a projectile that deals 80% magic damage, draining 30% Health and inflicts Leech.. Heals a hit ally for 120% and self for 30% of your spell power. Unlocked via Tier 2 Blood Spell point, such as from "Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier" iconBaron du Bouchon the Sommelier.
Shadowbolt_Skills_V_Rising.png "Shadowbolt" iconShadowbolt A shadow projectile that deals 185% magic damage and inflicts a 1s fading snare Default
Blood_Fountain_Icon.png "Blood Fountain" iconBlood Fountain Summon a pillar of blood healing allies for 50% of your spell power. The pillar erupts after 1.2 seconds, inflicting Leech and dealing 75% magic damage to enemies while healing allies for 75% of your spell power. Requires level 2 Blood Spell Point, such as "Raziel the Shepherd" iconRaziel the Shepherd.

Blood Rage

"Blood Rage" iconBlood Rage is a fine filler for how early you get it in the game, and the shield buff will scale with your spell power at higher levels. The attack speed buff is fine, but you’ll only really notice it on the slower weapons like the mace. Its biggest issue is that if you want a shield ability, there are better alternatives.

Blood Rite

You’ll start the game with this ability, and although it’ll take some time to learn how to use it properly, it’s one of the better Counters in the game. When used, you’ll put up a small barrier for 1.5 seconds and should you be struck by melee or projectile attacks, you’ll heal yourself for 30% of your spell power while dealing some damage and pushing the enemy away. Learn to master this, and it can be an invaluable tool throughout the entire game.

Sanguine Coil

The usefulness of this spell varies based on how much you or your allies get hit during battle. You’ll get three casts of the spell per each cooldown, and you’ll deal minor damage and heal yourself or you ally for some of that damage. You really need to ensure you hit all 3 casts to make this count, but this can be invaluable in boss battles where you’re out of potions.


Another ability you’ll start the game with and its fine as a damage dealer in the early stages of the game. It’s main issue lies in that it’s completely outclassed by the excellent "Chaos Volley" iconChaos Volley you also obtain in Farbane "Wood" iconWoods.

Blood Fountain

"Blood Fountain" iconBlood Fountain is a great support spell that offers fantastic healing options, alongside granting Leech for further healing potential. It can also do somewhat okay damage, but you’re largely investing in this for its support potential.

Blood Ultimate Abilities

Icon Name Description Location
Crimson_Beam_Skills_V_Rising.png "Crimson Beam" iconCrimson Beam (ultimate) Channel a beam of energy that deals 250% magic damage and inflicts Leech to enemies hit, and heals allies for 200% of your spell power per second for up to 3s. Each target hit heals self for 75% of your spell power. Spend a T3 Blood Spell Point, such as the one earned from "General Valencia the Depraved" iconGeneral Valencia the Depraved.
Heart_Strike_Skills_V_Rising.png "Heart Strike" iconHeart Strike (ultimate) Dash forward and strike enemies in a line. Deals 150% magic damage and heals self for 150% of your spell power over 3.5s. A nova of blood erupts when effect ends dealing 150% magic damage to the victim and nearby enemies, inflicting Leech. Unlocked via Tier 3 Blood Spell Point, such as those rewarded by "Tristan the Vampire Hunter" iconTristan the Vampire Hunter.

Crimson Beam

Continuing the theme of Blood spells, the first of the two Ultimates, "Crimson Beam" iconCrimson Beam, is great for group play. It’ll heal your allies based on the enemies it hits for 200% of your spell power, making this really potent at higher levels. This is definitely more of a support Ultimate so don’t go bringing it along for major damage.

Heart Strike

If Crimson Beam is great for group play, "Heart Strike" iconHeart Strike is similar but aimed at more solo play. It’ll deal more damage and heal yourself for 150% of your spell power before the following eruption deals damage around your target. This is a good choice for those boss battles that throws plenty of adds your way.
