There are many different forms of fast travel in V Rising. Fast travel options include the Cave system, Vampire Waygates, certain Vampire Powers, and mounts. Currently the only type of mount players can obtain are horses. In this guide you’ll learn how to get a horse in V Rising.
Where to Find a Horse
As a new player you will begin in Farbane Woods. You typically will not find any horses in this area. You will need to travel north into Dunley Farmlands. The Dunely Farmlands has an abundance of horses. Horses can spawn in any farm area in this region. You can also find them on roads next to carts. You can easily locate horse spawn on the map by hovering over an area and looking for the horseshoe Icon. If the horseshoe icon is present then horses will spawn in that area.
How to Get a Horse in V Rising
Once you have found a horse you simply need to interact with it (default key of “F”) in order to ride it. You can press tab, or look in your inventory, to see additional information about your horse. Not all horses are created equal. They each have different stats including maximum speed, acceleration, and turning speed.
You can hop off of any horse and jump onto any other horse at any time. This allows you to choose from a variety of horses if you find a large spawn so that you can choose the best one. You can look at your horses stats at any time by opening your inventory, even when mounted.
You can utilize Vampire Waygates while mounted as long as you do not have resources in your inventory.
How to Keep Your Horse Alive in V Rising
Your horse will need to be stocked with water in order to keep it alive. In order to do this you will need to give your horse waterskins filled with water. The horse will slowly consume the water until it is all gone. If you do not keep your horse hydrated it will eventually begin to lose health and ultimately die.
