Blood is a vital resource in V Rising. It decreases over time, except when resting in a coffin. As blood gets low, a grey edge of screen effect appears. When the blood pool is empty, health is lost quickly down to 1hp.
When feeding, the blood meter is filled to full and the blood type is changed to match what you fed from. Rats and hearts offer a portable source of blood but will change the blood type to frailed (no perks). Blood potions, however, offer a portable source of blood that will turn your blood type and quality to that of the blood potion.
By using Expose Vein, other vampires can feed on your blood pool, taking half of it and gaining the corresponding blood type.
Blood can be used to regain health through the Blood Mend vampire ability.
There are 5 tiers within each blood type that provide you with additional buffs and effects. The blood quality of your victim determines the tier of that blood type. Blood quality can be seen as a percentage under enemy health bars (by hovering over the enemy).
These tiers are divided by certain percentage ranges, included in the table below.
