In order to craft the best gear in V Rising, you’ll need to collect a variety of items, including the priceless whetstone. Because bandits, some of whom will be several levels above you and easily overpower you in the early game, drop whetstones quite often, this is a high-risk/high-reward situation. As long as you put in a little time and effort, you’ll be able to handle bandits in no time. It’s a good thing we are here to help you find a whetstone so you can thank us later.
What is the Use of Whetstone in V Rising?
In V Rising, the whetstone can be used for more than just making roof slabs for your starting base and castle. The only way to acquire a whetstone in the early stages of the game is to go out and find one. Once you’ve completed a few other missions, you’ll be able to craft your own whetstone. Until you can find a place to shelter from the sun, you’ll want to concentrate on the areas that produce whetstones.
Where to Find Whetstone in V Rising?
Whetstone can be found in bandit camps, which appear as large yellow circles on the map and minimap as you get closer. To see which resources will be dropped, open your map and hover over the yellow circles. That way, you won’t get lost in the woods or, like we did, accidentally burn to death in the sun while attempting to fight some dude.
That was our fault though.
Bandit camps can be found all over the Farbane Woods, but the majority of them are in the western part of the region. Whetstone is frequently dropped by bandits, but it can also be found in opened or smashed barrels, chests, and crates.
How to Craft Whetstone in V Rising?
Whetstone can also be obtained through crafting. Grayson the Armourer, a level 27 boss, must be defeated before you can get it, so you’ll need to be at least level 27 to get it. If you’re a better player, you can try earlier, but it’s better to wait until you are past level 20.
You’ll be able to make your own whetstone after that. To make one, head back to your base’s furnace. Whetstones can be made from one Copper Ingot and 12 Stone Dust. To ensure your long-term survival, you’ll need to build a strong foundation from which to work.
Achieving these materials should be relatively easy at this point in the game. You can interact with your base’s furnace to gather the materials needed to make a whetstone. Whetstones can be made by adding both materials to the furnace and turning it off. You can begin to make significant improvements to your castle with more whetstones. Creating stone bricks is the primary method for transforming your wooden base into a real castle.
Well, that’s all we have here about where you can get Whetstone in V Rising and also craft it. We hope this guide helped you. If you liked this, make sure to check out our V Rising guides on Blood Essence, Castle Decay, and daytimes.
