How to Get Immaculate Heart and Higher Blood Essence in V Rising
During the mid-game of V Rising, you will come across a quest that requires you to upgrade your base with different items. At the heart of these quests is the item called Greater Blood Essence, which, as the name suggests, is a more advanced version of the standard Blood Essence. The standard form of Blood Essence fuels the Castle Heart, which keeps your castle running. The higher version allows you to craft items such as the servant’s coffin and higher quality weapons and armor. However, to acquire the Elder Blood Essence, you need another material called Immaculate Heart.
As with most survival crafting titles, there are certain items that are much more difficult to locate than others. The Immaculate Heart is one of those items. Players have been stumped trying to acquire the material at any point in V Rising. If you are looking to craft the Greater Blood Essence but are in need of the Immaculate Heart, we tried to help you by giving you a few ways to acquire it in the guide below.
Obtain the Flawless Heart and Greater Blood Essence
You may have already guessed that Unsullied Heart is a rare item in V Rising. At the time of this writing, there is no clear way to acquire the heart. Some players have reported that enemies above level 18 have a higher chance of being dropped on death, but that hasn’t been backed up by anything official. However, if this is true, you may want to farm lower level bosses such as Alpha Wolf or Keely the Frost Archer if you want a chance at snagging an Unsullied Heart. While Alpha Wolf has a recommended level of 16, players have reported getting the heart as a drop for hitting him in Farbane Woods. Other reports indicate that enemies above level 30 have a higher chance of dropping the Immaculate Heart, which seems more likely given the rarity of the item.
As for other ways to acquire the Immaculate Heart, there don’t seem to be many concrete strategies. You may simply need to wander around Farbane Woods or the other northern regions of V Rising hoping to kill an enemy and receive the item as a drop. If you manage to get lucky and acquire four separate Unsullied Hearts, we recommend that you use them immediately to craft the Greater Blood Essence. This can be done in Blood Press, which can be crafted at your base after a few early game missions.
For any unlucky players, you may have to wait until the middle of the V Rising game. Here, once you defeat the Tristan the Vampire Hunter boss, you will be given the recipe to create Greater Blood Essence without the need for an Unsullied Heart. Instead, all you need is a regular 200 Blood Essence and Blood Press.
