Silver Sickness Basics
Silver Sickness in V Rising occurs when you pick up silver. This is similar to the garlic debuff, but with a different twist. Anytime you have silver in your inventory you are susceptible to the sickness. When you are carrying it you will see a white border around your screen, and will see the debuff appear. This applies to both silver coins and silver ore.
What Does Silver Sickness Do
The Silver Sickness in V Rising will slowly deplete your health. The rate of depletion is dependent upon how much silver you are carrying, and if you have any silver resistance. For every 7th silver you pick up you will receive an additional stack of the debuff. If you have 1-6 silver in your inventory you will receive 1 stack. On the 7th you will receive an additional stack, giving you 2 stacks. If you have 14 you will have 3 stacks, and so on.
For example, if you are carrying 37 silver with 0 silver resistance you’ll receive 6 stacks of the debuff. With 6 stacks you will take 4 damage per second. If you have the same amount of silver coins but have 15 silver resistance you will not take any damage from the sickness debuff. This is because 15 silver resistance reduces damage taken from silver attacks by 7.5% and allows you to withstand up to 12 applications of Silver Exposure. If you push that resistance higher the more silver you can carry without taking damage.
How to Remove Silver Sickness in V Rising
You will only receive the silver debuff while carrying silver. When you remove the silver from your inventory by storing it or throwing on the ground the silver sickness will immediately disappear. However, if you need to transport silver back to your base or to a different location you will need to increase you Silver Resistance to avoid being killed by the damage over time.
How to Increase your Silver Resistance
You can utilize various methods to increase your silver resistance so you can stifle the silver debuff in V Rising. Pressing the default key of “Tab” will access your character screen. There you can view all of your resistances to the right of your character, such as, Sun, Garlic, Holy, Fire, and Silver.
If you increase your resistance to silver it will reduce the application rate in which you receive damage over time from the debuff, and will allow you to carry more silver before receiving damage. You can increase you resistance to silver by utilizing consumables, gear, and vampire powers.

You can also obtain items from drops that have silver 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.
