Players take on the role of a powerful vampire, ascending through the ranks and achieving immense power in V Rising. However, explosives come in useful when you need a little extra firepower (literally).
Being able to make and use explosives gives you a huge edge in V Rising, not only for obtaining rare materials but also for protecting yourself on Vardoran’s harsh planet. This guide will help you with how to make explosives in V Rising and what you can do with them, both useful and destructive.
How to craft explosives in V Rising?
To make explosives, players must collect a few ingredients and beat a boss. The Level 30 boss, Clive the Firestarter, is the one you’ll need to defeat, so make sure you have the necessary stats and gear.
After defeating him, you’ll obtain the recipe for the Minor Explosive Box as well as the blueprint for the Alchemy Table, which is required to activate the explosive’s crafting ability.
To make the Minor Explosive Box, you’ll need the following items once you’ve crafted both the explosives recipe and the Alchemy Table:
- 4x Whetstone
- 8x Sulphur
- 8x Planks
Planks can be found by using lumber on any of your Sawmills. You can find Sulphur in the Bandit Sulphur Quarry in the Farbane Woods’ west section, where you fought Clive the Firestarter. So, when you’ve defeated him, scour the area for as much Sulphur Ore as you can to use in your furnace to make pure Sulphur. Along with Sulphur ore if you want to mine copper ore we have a guide to help you with that too.
You can use the Alchemy Table to make the explosives once you have these three materials. When laid on the ground, they can be used to mine ores and other resources in a short amount of time, but they can also be used to build defensive traps and eliminate opponents around your base.
Explosives aren’t the only way to mine ores in the game. You will be able to use the bear form after defeating a Level 36 boss, the Ferocious Bear, on the east side of Farbane Woods. You can employ a special attack in this form to break ore deposits that would otherwise require explosives.
Of course, this does not eliminate the need for explosives. Explosives, on the other hand, are employed to gather rich materials and can even come in handy to protect yourself against opponents. Furthermore, explosives do not deplete your Blood Pool, allowing you to save it for more vital duties like mending yourself.
