Best ways to increase movement speed in V Rising

Consuming a Wangler Potion

The Wangler's Potion is an incredible consumable that improves your mount's movement speed by 15% for 30 minutes. To craft this potion, you need 45 Fire Blossom and 1 Water-filled Bottle. Furthermore, having a reliable mount like a horse ensures that you are already faster compared to your walking speed.

Feasting on enemy Blood Type

In V Rising, players can feast on the blood of others by first damaging them and then drinking their blood. Different enemies have different Blood Types, so it's best to know which living being will provide you with the best movement speed buffs:

  • Creature 1: 3% - 15% increased Movement Speed.
  • Rogue 2: 8% - 15% increased Movement Speed.
  • Worker 3: 10% - 20% Movement Speed for Galloping.
  • Mutant 3: 10% - 20% increased Movement Speed when Shapeshifting.

Get a mount

Shortly after you start a new adventure in V Rising, head to the marked location on the map above, where you will come across a small farm with a stable. Here's where you can find you can find your first horse. Horses in V Rising are fairly common companions, and have a default comparable speed of 4.0.

Checking farm locations on the map can quickly get you a mount, removing the slow pace of walking around all the time.

Shapeshifting

Upon defeating the Alpha Wolf Boss in V Rising, you eventually gain the ability to shapeshift into a wolf. It's exactly as cool as it sounds, and provides you with a small speed buff. Consider this speed somewhere between mounting a horse and walking. It's not ideal, but it's certainly better than just walking around.

Similarly, you can also shapeshift into different beasts. However, they aren't as fast as using potions or using a mount to traverse through different locations.

Using dash abilities

There are few abilities in the game that help you attack as well as move swiftly. One of these is the Veil of Chaos ability. Once you defeat Clive the Firestarter, you will gain this ability. Upon activation, it lets you dash in the direction of your choice and escape nearby enemies for 2.2 seconds.

The primary attack does fire damage, and when your illusion explodes it deals 50% magic damage (environmental).
