How to Get Greater Blood Essence

V Rising provides several options to players looking to obtain Greater Blood Essence. The easiest way is looting it as a drop from strong animals, particularly level 30 and above. So, this might not be the best option if you’re in the game’s early stages.
You can also find Greater Blood Essence from Unsullied Hearts. However, the items are rare. A little patience will go a long way to enable you to collect a decent amount as drops from tiny animals and bosses.
After collecting an adequate amount of Unsullied Hearts, you can proceed to the Blood Press. Place four Unsullied Hearts in it to obtain one Greater Blood Essence. Given the minimal chances of fetching Unsullied Hearts from animals and Bosses, this isn’t a reliable option.
The best way to find Blood Essence would be to obtain its recipe. As expected, you’ll have to subdue an enemy. In this case, it’s a level 46 boss called Tristan the Vampire Hunter. You can quickly locate him using the Blood Altar. After defeating him, collect the recipe, then craft your Blood Essence.
