The world of Vardoran in V Rising holds many secrets. While most of these secrets are directly related to gameplay, like finding iron, there are a few that may simply make your life as a vampire easier. An unknown feature of V Rising is the fast travel system, which works like a traditional system in an MMORPG. There are Vampire Waygates dotted around the map, which serve as teleportation stations that you can use to quickly travel to other Waygates you’ve discovered.
Although, the Vampire Waygates aren’t quite what they seem. There are a few caveats when using Waygates and this can hamper your ability to travel quickly. Below you can see exactly how Vampire Waygates and the fast travel system work in V Rising.
Fast Travel in V Rising
Waygates in V Rising are marked on the map as green house icons. Once you discover one, it will be marked on your map permanently so you can see exactly how far you are from any Waygate. Each Waygate has a different name, which makes it easy to know exactly where you are in the world. While Waygates seem quite simple to use, there is one big caveat to using them to quickly travel around the map.
You cannot fast travel while loading resources. This applies to anything you can collect in the world, such as minerals, wood, plant fibers, leather and animal skin, etc. The developers designed Waygates this way for players to make tough decisions while collecting resources across the map. This also brings the sun into play, as you must now face the elements traveling back to your base with a resourceful inventory rather than simply fast travel. You can still have consumables or general equipment in your inventory if you want to travel fast.
If you don’t want to travel hundreds of meters with resources in your inventory, you can establish different castles in each region of V Rising. This will make it easier to store resources that you might not want to lose due to enemies or the sun. These various bases will also allow you to completely ignore the sun. You can think of them as waypoints to while away the day and then resume your journey once night falls.
Unfortunately for those who want to use Vampire Waygates to their fullest extent, there aren’t many in Vardoran. Most regions have four at most, making the distance between each one quite far. However, this can be mitigated by making your own Vampire Waygate. To do this, you must first defeat the boss Polora the Feywalker. Polora has a recommended level of 34 and can be found wandering around Gleaming Meadows in the western part of Farbane Woods. Defeating Polora will unlock the Vampire Waygate blueprint.
Building each Waygate costs the following resources:
- 10 Gem Powder
- 20 copper ingots
- 20 planks
- 200 Blood Essences
Your built Waygates work in exactly the same way as the patterns found in the world. You can use them to fast travel to any other Waygate. Also, other players on your server cannot use their personal Waygates, so they can be a good way to escape an enemy player if you can get close to one.
