Servants can assist you by completing tasks, going on missions, and defending your castle from enemies and creatures beyond the castle walls. Additionally, they can be sent out to farm resources from forests and mines while you're raiding enemy castles and dungeons. As such, servants can prove exceptionally useful in PvE and PvP scenarios.

Once you've converted an enemy into your servant in V Rising, you can hover over their profile to view their stats, skills, and blood type. Depending on where you first located them, they also have a faction type that grants you a unique perk, like a boost in farming resources. You can learn more about the different servant types below.

  • Tenacious Strength: This servant can decrease hunting difficulty by 100 in brutal environments; it has the Brute blood type.
  • Tracking Expertise: This servant can reduce hunting difficulty in locations that spawn creatures, demons, and other monsters by 100; it has the Rogue blood type.
  • Sacred Resistance: This servant can reduce hunting difficulty in locations guarded by spells and incantations; it has the Scholar blood type.
  • Military Tactics: When in stronghold locations, this servant can reduce the difficulty by 100; it has the Warrior blood type.
  • Humble Appearance: When entering villages, towns, and other settlements, these servants can reduce the difficulty by 100; it has the Worker blood type.

With their unique abilities and skills, your loyal helpers can be sent on missions to collect and harvest resources from nearby areas such as villages, towns, settlements, mines, and even bandit camps. The higher their expertise level (i.e., blood level), the more successful they'll be at gathering resources in these areas.

You can also rely on your servants to guard your castle during enemy raids, provided they're equipped with the right gear and weapons. If under-leveled, equip them with appropriate gear to boost their expertise. However, if they're still not up to par, it might be time to find a new servant.

Choosing the right servant type to keep around your castle depends on your playstyle and preferences. If farming is your priority, then the Humble Appearance type is the way to go, as it provides valuable farming perks, especially before you unlock the human form. For the game's early stages, the Tenacious Strength type is the most accessible and useful for building and crafting. However, for more advanced stages of the game, you might want to consider servants with the Military Tactics type, as they can defend your castle against enemies and creatures when you're busy raiding on PvE or PvP servers.

It's worth noting that you can revive your servants using blood essence should they die while defending your castle. They'll be resurrected at the coffin, but not in their previous location. So if you want to take full advantage of your servants and optimize your gameplay in V Rising, consider their type and unique abilities when sending them on missions, gathering resources, and defending your castle.
