Dracula’s fanatical followers frequently open tears to the Shadow Realm, allowing his soldiers to pass through to Vardoran. Once there, their aim is to collect enough V Blood to resurrect Dracula. These tears are at the center of the new world events dubbed Rift Incursions.

There are a variety of new enemies introduced in the Rise of Mortium region. Aside from the Arctic Bear, Withered Vampire, and Frost Wolf, they all have the Draculin Blood type. The area also has new V Bloods for you to slaughter.

Ruins of Mortium Resources

The single resource you can only find in the Ruins of Mortium is Bleeding Heart, a flower used in alchemical crafting. It’s similar in appearance to the background flowers accenting the land, so you’ll need to pay attention to the red glow around the plant.

They grow throughout the region, but if you really want to find them, Dracula’s Castle Garden is the best place to go. The plant is there in high numbers, which makes harvesting a large amount easy. I find this is one of the easiest flower resources to keep a high stock of because of this.

Additionally, the following resources can be harvested in Rise of Mortium:

  • Blood Rose
  • Stone
  • Sulphur Ore
  • Iron Ore
  • Gems
  • Wood
  • Quartz
  • Plant Fibre

Even though some of the ponds in the region aren’t frozen, there are no fishing spots in Ruins of Mortium.

Ruins of Mortium Locations

There are a number of camps in the region, including Vampire Merchants that you can purchase specialized weapons from. However, the main focal points are Dracula’s Castle, the courtyard, and the garden area. The closer you get to the castle proper, the more difficult the enemies become, with the Gargoyles and Sanguinary Guard looming over the entrance.

There are three Waypoints in Ruins of Mortium. One to the northwest near the Dunley Farmlands entrance, one to the east, and another in the southwest toward the Hallowed Mountains.

Most of the northeastern ruins become Level 2 Rift Incursions, while the southwest ones remain Level 1. Regardless of incursion type, the Vampire Cultists and Hands of Dracula will remain the same level.

That’s all there is to know about the Ruins of Mortium region in V Rising, including camp locations, V Blood bosses, resources, and enemies. For more on the title, check out our V Rising guide compendium.
