V Rising guide: How to get Greater Blood Essence and Unsullied Heart for the Servant Coffin
The task to find Greater Blood Essence in V Rising shows up after you’ve built a Castle Roof. Specifically, you’re asked to construct and interact with a Servant Coffin, which needs that particular item.
Before you could make that, however, you’ll want to go to the build menu. In the Production – Refinement tab, you’ll find the Blood Press (12x Plank and 120x Stone). The Blood Press allows you to convert 4x Unsullied Heart into 1x Greater Blood Essence.
To get Unsullied Heart in V Rising, you’ll want to kill enemy mobs that are level 16 or higher (the tougher they are, the higher the chance).
As you can see in the image below, one of the mobs in the Bandit Copper Mine dropped a Greater Blood Essence.
Meanwhile, a random enemy dropped this as well while I was fighting Lidia the Chaos Archer to get The Devourer blueprint.
Lidia herself would end up handing over this material, too, once I defeated her.
As such, your best bet to get Unsullied Heart and Greater Blood Essence is to check the Blood Altar. By tracking targets, you’ll spot regular foes and bosses that might drop the material as loot.
It can take a while, so just keep at it as you progress. Soon, you’ll be able to construct the Servant Coffin and dominate humans.
