To find Whetstones in V Rising, you will need to search specific locations in the game. Crafting is also an option, but you will need to unlock the recipe first by slaying Grayson the Armourer. Once unlocked, you will be able to craft Whetstones inside a Furnace with 12 Stonedust and 1 Copper Ingot per Whetstone.
But before you can craft Whetstones, you need to unlock the recipe. So, in the meantime, go with the location-farming route for Whetstones. Locations such as Bandit Strongholds and the Bandit Armory are perfect for farming and finding Whetstones. You can find Whetstones as dropped loot in these locations via boxes, chests, and specific enemies.
Deadeyes, Bombers, and spear-wielding enemies will occasionally drop Whetstones. You can find these enemies inside Bandit Strongholds, in the Bandit Armory, or roaming close by on the roads. However, the Bandit Stronghold location will not be accessible until you unlock bombs. Because of this, it is better to go with the Bandit Armory route for finding Whetstones in V Rising.
You can find the Bandit Armory location below in the Farbane Woods area. But before going to the Bandit Armory, we recommend raising your Gear Level to at least Level 27. Doing so will allow you to fight the high-level enemies found inside the Bandit Armory.
How to unlock Whetstones in V Rising
To unlock Whetstones in V Rising, you will need to find and kill Grayson the Armourer. Grayson the Armourer is located at the Bandit Armory in the location above. Grayson is also level 27, so we recommend raising your level to at least Gear Level 27+ before fighting them. You can increase your Gear Level by making the following items.
- Complete set of Nightstalker armor: 6 Leather and 4 Coarse Thread per armor piece
- Copper Weapons: 16 Copper Ingots and 12 Planks apiece
- Gravedigger Ring: 8 Grave Dust and 40 Mourning Lily
Making the items listed above will raise your total Gear Level to 30, which is the perfect range for surviving the Bandit Armory and slaying Grayson the Armourer. Upon killing Grayson, you will unlock Whetstones and can then craft them back at the Furnace with 12 Stonedust and 1 Copper Ingot.
What are Whetstones used for in V Rising?

Merciless Copper Weapons are the next step above normal Copper Weapons in the game and will raise your Gear Level by 12. Each weapon will also cost at least 8 Whetstones to make, along with other resources. The Grinder will require at least 4 Whetstones and is used to make resources such as Stone Dust.
