How to get sharpening stone in V Rising?

V Rising challenges players in a variety of ways. From simply learning the mechanics of the game to trying to build a fully functioning castle, players have made their way into the world of Vardoran well. Fortunately, many of your goals in V Rising will overlap. The game designed its mission system to act in this way, allowing players to accomplish one goal to start another. One of the best examples is that players can build a starting base and then upgrade it with different items. A necessary addition to any foundation is the roof, which cannot be made without a whetstone

While the whetstone serves other purposes in V Rising, you’ll mainly need it to make roof slabs for your starting base and the final castle. In the early game, the only way to obtain a whetstone is to invent it in the world. Later you can make your own whetstone, but that’s only after several other missions are completed. For now, you’ll want to focus on which areas can produce a whetstone, so at least you can get a roof over your head to avoid the dangerous sun.

We’ve outlined the best places to buy a whetstone and how to eventually make your own in the guide below.

find whetstones

The easiest and perhaps earliest location to find whetstones is Bandit Strongholds. These are points of interest on the map, which are marked with yellow circles. Of course, not every landmark will be a Bandit Stronghold, but there are a few in the Farbane Woods starting region. You have to go a few hundred meters north to encounter Bandit Strongholds and other Bandit camps. Once you’ve done that, you can clear out the bandits who are there to loot their bodies. These bandits can drop whetstones themselves, so make sure you get as much out of them as possible.

On the site itself, there will be several lootable items scattered around the ground and other parts of the stronghold or camp. There will usually be a few whetstones that can be picked up, although some locations may contain more or less of the source. In addition, you can also find resources such as paper, copper ore, and more. With an inventory full of whetstones, you can return to your base and begin building your roof. However, you must have completed the required missions that will give you access to the roof sheet recipe.

Making whetstones

After some time in V Rising you get the opportunity to make your own whetstones. The craft recipe is linked to the boss Grayson the Armorer. If you open your Blood Altar menu and scroll down you will see that this boss has a level requirement of level 27. This means that you cannot beat the boss until you reach this specific gear score.

Once you’re level 27, you can travel to the Bandit Armory in Farbane Woods to find Grayson the Armorer. After defeating the boss, you unlock the Crimson Aegis power, along with the ability to craft whetstones, statues, and workshop floors. The recipe for making a whetstone is as follows:

  • 1 copper rod
  • 12 Stone dust

These materials shouldn’t be too difficult to acquire at this stage of the game. To make the whetstone with these materials, you can interact with the kiln in your base. Transfer both materials to the kiln and let it sit to make the whetstones. With more whetstones you can start improving your castle with greater margins. This is mainly done by making stone bricks, which turn your wooden base into a real castle.
