What is Scourgestone and How to Get it

Scourgestone is a valuable resource in V Rising that is used in many different crafting recipes. It is a magic component used for crafting gear, magical objects, and consumables. As you begin to explore the tier II regions like Dunley Farmlands, you will start to find recipes that require the use of this resource. Once you reach a certain point in your progression you will need to obtain it to advance your gear score.

You can obtain Scourgestone in two primary ways. First, you can find it as a drop in Northern and Western Dunley Farmlands. The second way you can obtain it is by learning the recipe and crafting it in your furnace. Crafting it does require a few different ingredients.

Where to Farm Scourgestone

The Church of the Damned

You can farm it by heading to the Church of the Damned located in the northeast of Dunley Farmlands. It is highly sought after so farming it can be dangerous on a PvP server. So, if you choose this method on a PvP server be prepared for a fight.

At the Church of the Damned you will probably encounter a group of skeletons patrolling the entrance. Make sure you take them out as you enter because there are many enemies in the region. There are quite a few necromancers, called Bishops, that you will encounter. The Bishops spawn a lot of skeleton ads so you don’t want to get overwhelmed as you progress through the area. Make sure you kill enemies as you go so you don’t get overran. You also want to kill them all because they have a low chance to drop Scourgestone.

Undead Commander

Your main target wanders the paths in the area. He is a level 49 Undead Commander. He is a tough enemy to take down, and shouldn’t be taken lightly if you’re a solo player. If you aggro the Commander while fighting the Bishops it’s a good idea to leave the area to reset the fight if you can’t kite the Commander away. You will want to try to fight the Commander by himself. Once you kill him, there’s a high chance that he will drop up to two Scourgestones.

Undead Commander V Rising

The other areas of the zone contain more Bishops and some Skeleton Mages. Again, make sure you kill all the enemies for your best chance at Scourgestone drops. Even if they do not drop Scourgestones you will obtain quite a lot of Grave Dust, another important resource.

V Boss in the Area

You can find up to three chests in this area, with the possibility of a golden chest. There are also two additional chests that spawn near the boss in the area, Leandra the Shadow Priestess. These two chests are important because this is where you’ll find the majority of the Scourgestones while your here. You will also need to defeat this boss in order to unlock the recipe to craft Scourgestones.

The Dunley Monestary

You can also farm Scourgestone in the Dunley Monastery. This point of interest is located in western Dunley Farmlands. This area is heavily guarded by militia enemies. It’s also an area that contains heavy holy radiation, so be prepared to mitigate the debuff prior to entering the area. There’s also a V Boss located within the monestary, Raziel the Shepherd.

Farming with Your Servants

You can also send your servants out to farm Scourgestone for you. You will need to be able to craft Servant Coffins, which cost Greater Blood Essence. Once you have a servant you will need to equip them well before sending them out to the Church of the Damned in order to improve their chances at success. Depending on how long you send them, and how geared they are you may be able to have a decent amount of Scourgestones farmed for you.

How to Craft Scourgestones

You will need to defeat Leandra the Shadow Priestess before you have the ability to craft Scourgestones. She is located in the Church of the Damned and summons many ads during the fight. Once you defeat her you will unlock the ability to craft Scourgestone and recipes for Scourge Pendent and Dusk Caller.

In order to craft the Scourgestone you’ll need a furnace. It takes roughly two and half minutes to craft 1 Scourgestone. The recipe to craft the item is the following:

  • 4 Whetstones
  • 4 Grave Dust

Uses for Scourgestones

There are several different uses for this resource after you have acquired it. It is a pivotal ingredient for many different important recipes in V Rising.


One of the more important uses for Scourgestones is to make Gear Level 15 accessories. The Scourge Pendant requires the use of scourgestones, and every upgrade to this amulet will need an additional scourge pendant made if you wish to switch.


There are also some structures that require the use of Scourgestone. The Artisan table is on of those structures. You will use the Artisan table to craft upgraded jewelry, so it’s a pivotal component of your progression in the game.

Dark Silver Ingots

Darksilver ingots become very important once you push into Tier III materials and equipment. You will need to defeat the boss, Cyril the Cursed Smith to unlock the recipe for the Ingots and the Anvil structure, which is required to craft them.

You will use Darksilver ingots to craft the Darksilver line of weapons which will push you further up in your Gear Level.
