How to Get Primal Blood Essence in V Rising

This guide covers all you need to know about Primal Blood Essence in V Rising, including what it is, how to get it, and what it’s used for.

Primal Blood Essence in V Rising is the highest tier of blood essence available in the game. You can obtain it in two different ways. The first way is by refining exquisite hearts into a primal blood essence. It costs 4 exquisite hearts to make 1 primal blood essence. If you have an Alchemy room with the appropriate bonuses the cost drops to 3 hearts for 1 essence.

Exquisite hearts drop from enemies in the higher level zones. They are the rarest form of heart drops from enemies. Therefore, it’s a good idea to store them as you come across them. Farming these hearts will take you a very long time. It’s not an efficient way to obtain the primal blood essence that you’re after. However, there is an easier way to obtain primal blood essence versus farming exquisite hearts. You will need to defeat a V Boss and acquire the recipe.
