It should be no surprise that endgame bosses are super challenging to defeat in V Rising; however, the struggle is certainly worth it, especially given the rare crafting recipes and powerful abilities many of them unlock.
Jade the Vampire Hunter is one such formidable foe, who unlocks a powerful fire spell called Chaos Barrage, and highly sought-after crafting recipes for Large Explosives and Primal Blood Essence. This guide will explain how to beat Jade the Vampire Hunter in V Rising, both the cheesy way and the hard way.
Where to find Jade the Vampire Hunter in V Rising?
Unlike her compatriot, Tristan the Vampire Hunter, who wonders around Farbane Woods, you'll find Jade the Vampire Hunter wandering the paths of the Dunley Farmlands. She is located near the center of the area.
If you haven't already accidentally stumbled upon this Level 62 V Blood carrier, then you can always track her from the Blood Altar. Note that you will need a high enough gear level before doing this.
How to beat Jade the Vampire Hunter in V Rising?
Similarly to other high-level endgame bosses, Jade the Vampire Hunter is annoyingly powerful, so don't be bummed if you find yourself doing repeat tries. The V Blood Carrier will use ranged attacks, throwing combustible explosives at you that deal insane damage.
For this reason, you'll want to keep your distance and avoid or counter these with ranged attacks. If you instead choose to use melee attacks, then be sure to dodge the explosives Jade throws on the ground beneath her.

In addition, be wary that Jade the Vampire Hunter's attacks can slow and silence you, with the latter preventing you from casting any spells. On that note, it's advisable to use Purgatory (Unholy Ability) to heal. While you can use Sanguine Coil, you will need to land hits on her, which runs counter to the strategy we're about to explain.
Easy way to beat Jade the Vampire Hunter
Alternatively, you could employ the following "cheesy" method to kill Jade the Vampire Hunter without taking much damage. First, you'll need to lure her off the road to avoid attracting (unwanted) attention from enemies or inadvertently aggroing enemy mobs.
Next, find an object or structure that Jade cannot traverse over, like a large house or obstacle, and kite her around it. You'll notice that she will chase after you, allowing you to attack her as she turns the corner.
You can continue to do this until the boss has been slain. Then, if you listen carefully to Jade's audio cues before she deals a projectile attack, you can use Chaos Barrier to reflect the damage at her, killing her faster.
It's important that you kite Jade the Vampire Hunter around a structure she cannot jump over; otherwise, this battle will be made exponentially harder.
Once you've successfully defeated her, you'll be rewarded with the following:
- Chaos Barrage (Ultimate Ability) - Launch 4 Chaos Orbs that deal 75% magic damage on direct hit, 75% magic damage to enemies in an area, and inflicts Chaos Burn.
- Large Explosives (Recipe)
- Primal Blood Essence (Recipe)
