In V Rising, some equipment and upgrades need a Dark Silver Ingot, which can be hard to craft if you aren’t fully prepared. Our guide tells you how to craft Dark Silver Ingots and where to find them.
Where to get dark silver ingots
Dark Silver Ingots don’t have a specific farming point so you’ll have to craft them if you want a consistent supply. If you’re lucky, you might find them in Silverlight Hills in treasure chests and drawers. But this isn’t a reliable way to get them, so it’s much better to make them yourself.
One reliable method to get the ingots you need is to go to the Sacred Silver Mine. The Sacred Silver Mine is in the northwest. It has a lot of Silver Ore, but you should be at least level 60 before you go there. As was already said, you should bring one or two Silver Resistance Brews.
Remember that you are a vampire and silver hurts you before you go out to farm Silver Ore, which you need to make Dark Silver Ingots. Before you look for Silver Ore, you should drink a Silver Resistance Brew.
Dark Silver Ingots: How to craft
You’ll need a crafting recipe before you can forge Dark Silver ingots. You have to kill Octavian the Militia Captain, a level 58 V Blood, to get the crafting recipe. You can find him at the Bastion of Dunley.
Once you’ve unlocked it, you can make it by putting Scourgestone and Silver Ore into your Furnace. (If you haven’t unlocked Scourgestone yet, you might be looking things up too early).
Which items require Dark Silver Ingots
High-level V Rising players will want to craft as many Ingots as they can in order to make themselves Dark Silver weapons as well as Golden Castle Keys to mess with other player’s keeps.
Below are all of the items you can craft using Dark Silver Ingots, but given that they’re some of the strongest items you can make it’ll take a while to grind and gather all of the materials you’ll need.
