V Rising Features a Day Night Cycle that can cause many deaths early on. During the day if you sit in sunny areas for too long you will begin to take massive damage. In this guide we go over how you can increase sun resistance in V Rising. This will increase the time you can endure the sun by a certain percentage. The higher the percentage, the more time you can endure the sun.

As you increase you resistance to the sun you will also increase the time that you can stay in the sun without taking damage. At sun resistance 0, you’ll take sun damage very quickly. With a sun resistance of 15 you will be able to stay in the sun 22.5% longer before you begin to take any damage.

Additional Information

You can also obtain items from drops that have sun resistance on them. These items are much like the items you can craft above, but dropped from chests or monsters. For example, the Thousand-Stitch Cloak has the same perks as the Hunter’s Cloak. However, the Thousand stitch cloak is obtained from a drop and the Hunter’s Cloak is obtained via crafting.
