V Rising 1.0 Hot Fix #5 Patch Notes:

Greetings Vampires!

Today we bring you a series of quality of life and usability fixes, a new optional gamepad layout, a whole host of bug fixes, and a ton of V Blood changes to make the visuals on fights more clear, as well as adjust the difficulty just a bit to be better in line with our expectations.

This hotfix will be going live shortly and feature the following changes:


  • A number of FX have been updated with new visuals to improve performance.
  • Soul Shards will now automatically be destroyed if not picked up from the ground after 60 minutes.
  • Server Details window now displays castle pvp times.
  • Soul Shards can no longer be spawned using the console command unless the shard has already dropped (to avoid admin mistakes by spawning shards that are not bound to the shard bearer).
  • Players in Siege Golem form are now immune to Witch's “Hex” spell (the spell that turns players into pigs). It previously removed the Siege Golem buff if players were hit by this spell (the spell is used by the Blood Witch, so this could create some awkward siege interactions).
  • Increased the configurable range of the brightness calibration option.
  • A particular leaf bush in Farbane Woods and Cursed Forest now has the correct visual representation after a player has cut it.
  • General optimizations to improve performance.
  • Vietnamese Localization has been added.


  • A new control layout has been implemented. The new layout favors a more convenient camera control that better mimics the right mouse button on the PC. Both Weapon Skill 1 and 2 are on double inputs in order to make this control layout work.
  • L2 is the Camera Modifier, and the Right Stick controls the camera.
  • Players may rotate the camera while using the primary attack at the same time (R2).
  • L2 + R1 to trigger Weapon Skill 1.
  • R2 + L1 to trigger Weapon Skill 2.
  • North Face Button (Triangle / Y) as shortcut to Build Menu.
  • Players may now select control layout in the Option Menu and can choose between the new control layout and the old control layout.
  • Some ability slots have been moved to new slots on shapeshifts such as Toad and Siege Golem to make sure both control layouts work properly.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where you could transfer all Blood Essence from an enemy Castle Heart by using the Take All key bind.
  • Fixed an issue where you could input items into an invisible servant coffin inventory.
  • Fixed an issue where server times did not take Daylight savings time into account.
  • Fixed an issue where server details did not display Mortium Rift Incursion Event settings correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where castle objects that require multiple levels of space could be placed on top of other objects taller than a single level. For instance, this allowed a castle throne to be placed on top of trees.
  • Fixed an issue where the name horse prompt could activate when browsing the inventory while using gamepad.
  • Fixed an issue on Cyril the Cursed Smith where his Spear summon would not attack properly on Normal Difficulty.
  • Fixed an issue on Cyril the Cursed Smith where he would summon Axes on Normal Difficulty (Brutal Difficulty only Summon).
  • Fixed some overlapping text issues in tooltips on some languages.
  • Fixed an issue where you could dupe unique structures in relocation if you were outside of the networking range.
  • Fixed an issue where the “Every Corner of the World” achievement was unlocked without visiting every world region.
  • Fixed an issue where default castle music could sometimes play for a while after logging in even if a music box was playing tracks in the castle.
  • General stability fixes for AI movement logic, should fix various cases where units could lag, especially when aggroed.
  • Fixed an issue where certain abilities could interrupt other, already casting, abilities.
