Bear Form increases resistance (25%), speed (15%), health regeneration and decreases the damage players receive (25%).
Importantly for those who don't want to farm Sulphur and craft Explosives in V Rising all that much, you can destroy Blockades in Bear Form as well.
To unlock the Bear Form in V Rising, you will have to defeat the Ferocious Bear boss.
It is really as simple as that, and in the next section of this guide, we tell you the exact location of this Blood Carrier and how to kill it.
V Rising Ferocious Bear - Location & how to beat
First up, you will need to know the location of the Ferocious Bear in order to fight it, right? Well, the image above showcases exactly where the V Rising Ferocious Bear is located in Farbane Woods (Eastern side) in the Bear Cave.
The V Rising Ferocious Bear boss is level 36, so we suggest you increase your Gear Score to at least 36 and maybe even bring a friend along.
Item checklist to beat Ferocious Bear:
- A few Blood Rose Brew to heal.
- Enchanted Brew to increase spell power.
- Merciless Copper Weapons of your choice.
- Merciless Night Stalker armour set.
- A crossbow.
- Mist Signet.
While killing the Ferocious Bear might be easier with ranged spells such as Chaos Volley, you can also melee it down. There are just some big attacks players need to watch out for, such as a ground slam and debris falling from the ceiling, telegraphed by red circles after an attack.
The boss also has a charge attack while enraged, which means you should get out of the way as soon as possible with Veil abilities.
Another important note is that the boss attacks faster while enraged, and every attack that hits inflicts players with an Ensnare debuff. This is why we recommend bringing a friend or learning the boss' attack patterns carefully to defeat it so you don't get hit too often.
Just remember that bosses scale with the number of players in an area, so doing it as a duos team is more about taking the focus of the Ferocious Bear boss off a player.
Defeating the Ferocious Bear will grant you access to V Rising's Bear Form, and the ability to create Fur Rugs.
