What Are Silver Coins Used for in V Rising?

Here's everything you need to know about Silver Coins in V Rising, including how to get the currency and its uses.

Silver Coins are a type of currency in V Rising, but what are they used for exactly? Silver is considered a holy and sacred metal and is said to have antibacterial properties. The metal has adverse effects on impure forces like vampires, undead, and werewolves. V Rising stays true to this tradition, which means carrying Silver while in vampire form will not be an enjoyable experience. 

Picking up Silver Coins puts a “carrying silver” debuff on your character. The debuff makes you take damage over time, and the silver glowing effect to denote the debuff is visible to other players around you. How much Silver you’re carrying and your character’s silver resistance affects the damage you take over time. Players can negate this damage using potions and brews. Items that can improve your silver resistance include:

  • Silver Resistance Brew
  • Silver Resistance Potions

Silver Coins are a currency used in V Rising to trade with merchants while in human form. Players can exchange Silver Coins with merchants for various cosmetic items, potions, and gems.

Human form unlocks after defeating Beatrice the Tailor at Dawnbreak Village, a tier two area located in Dunley Farmlands. You must be in human form to trade with merchants. The form also allows you to sneak into human villages and camps and steal coins from containers, barrels, and other containers while avoiding enemies. Beware, upon looting things, you will break your stealth.
