How to Find Blood Essence & Greater Blood Essence
To get that all important Blood Essence, you must kill the living creatures that you will encounter on your journey. This includes animals such as bears, moose, and even humans. The amount that you earn will depend on the level of the living creature you kill. Once the living creature is low on health, you will be able to feed on it or kill it to get Blood Essence. It does not matter which option you choose as they will both grant you the same amount of Blood Essence.
Later on in V Rising, you will be able to collect Greater Blood Essence. This can be obtained from Unsullied Hearts which are dropped by living creatures of a high level and can be pressed on a Blood Press in your base.
There is no doubt that collecting Blood Essence should be one of your top priorities in V Rising. However, crafting materials such as leather is also important when you are beginning your journey in the supernatural world.
