V Rising – Castle Rooms Guide

I found it very annoying how no one had made a guide for – all possible rooms, things needed for those rooms, optimal size, while still being able to decorate it! So I figured id make this in case it helps anyone.

Guide to Castle Rooms

All credit goes to Anulne!

All Room Types

All the rooms Currently. possible to build are:

  • Workshop
  • Forge
  • Alchemist
  • Crypt
  • Prison
  • Library
  • Tailor
  • Jewelry

Important Starting Notes

I dont wish to spoil myself by speedrunning certain bosses without my friend, so FOR NOW, there are some benches i will not have pictures for, sorry.

With that note out of the way, ill describe what i can for you all!

Ive heard there will be new stations and benches added in the fall, ill add those when they appear

Floor Types

  • Most rooms will benefit from having a specific flooring tile.
  • The bonuses are always the same but are majorly helpful.
  • So the sooner you get them, the better in the long run!
  • Every room listed in this guide has a floor type of that room unless stated in the section.
  • You will unlock them from either the Research Bench or the Study with Paper or Scrolls.

How stairs work

  • They MUST be placed on pre existing ramps, they act as a skin for them.
  • Place borders up to the ramp, and THEN place the stairs from the border flooring.
  • They act as a border space so youll need room for it to place them.

Tombs – Medium

  • Cant be placed on flooring but CAN be placed on Garden tiles.

Sleeping Coffins – Large

  • These set a spawn point and can be put anywhere, but probably somewhere safe.
  • They also dont need a dedicated room.

Storage Room – Optional

  • Not needed, you can just put items inside the output of machines as a storage box, or just boxes/bookshelfs inside the room for where they are needed but a central storage is easier for doing the quick “compulsively count” option.

Throne “Room”

Room Size – At least a 2 x 2 tile placement size, for the throne itself.

  • This is a room that doesnt have any type of bonuses applied to it (so far).
  • and can be anything you want to have inside it, like storage!
  • Its a purely decorative area but must have the Throne in it.

Workshop Room

  • Room Size – Medium / Large
  • Grinders – How ever many you need to have speedy brick making.
  • Start with one then go to 2-4 if you want – Smallish.
  • Sawmills – Again, how ever many, then 2-4 or higher – Large.
  • Wood Workbench – No reason IMO so far, than needing more than 1 in a room – Medium

Forge Room

  • Room Size – Medium / Large!
  • Furnace – Start with 1, more if needed, i do 2 and its still slow. – Medium Sized, if many.
  • Simple Workbench – Just 1, no need for extra unless you mass produce gear – Smallish.
  • Smithy – Creates Iron gear! Only one needed. – 2×2, but i leave it open!
  • Anvil – Not currently in picture – Makes stuff, unsure, sorry! – 2×2 or a L shape.

Alchemist Room

  • Room Size – Small / Large
  • Alchemy Station – Probably just one, unless you make a lot of potions. – Fits in a L shape or a 2×2
  • Blood Press – If you have a lot of rats or need quick high end blood, 2-4, otherwise just 1 – 1×1
  • Vermin Nests – Depending on server settings, as many as you want! – 2×2
  • But again! Open floor plans are good!

Crypt Room

  • Room Size – Tiny / Huge!
  • Only thing in here needed are Servant Coffins – Smallish sleeping spots for your thralls.
  • How ever many servants you want, youll need that many coffins, so entirely up to you on size here.
  • You can fit two coffins in a 1×1.

Garden “Room”

  • “Room” Size – Huge!
  • If you want lots and lots of plants at your base, and you probably should have lots.
  • A nice central courtyard or many small around the castle would be great.
  • Separate area for Trees perhaps, or use them as decoration with your benches around the garden – Huge.
  • Make sure to have a Well for easy water if you arent near a lake/ river – Medium.

This is a condensed garden, no trees with a well.

And this is a garden for primarily trees, and tombs.

Plant Sizes

I will eventually list every plant in the game here and the tiles they fit in.

Small Plants – Fit in a 1×1 easily

  • Cotton, Sunflower, Blood Rose

Medium Plants – Only some fit in a 1×1

  • Blood Carrion

Large Plants – Things like trees

  • Tree.

Prison Room

  • Room Size – Small / Medium
  • Depending on how many prisoners you want, all up to you for size.
  • Each blood type on hand would be ideal. So about 6-8.

Study Room

  • Room Size – Large!
  • Research bench – Until you have every paper research keep it in there, then as just decor – Tiny
  • Study – Fully unlock all scroll research then its just decor Huge!
  • I keep the Devourer in here too, but he can go anywhere you like! His size is 1×1
  • Athenaeum – Still just unlocks stuff – 2×2
  • Note : Not current accurate flooring.

Tailor Room

  • Room Size – Large / Huge
  • Tannery – However fast you want your animal hide to be converted – Small
  • Looms – Probably a few, 1-4 maybe based on how fast you want it. – Medium
  • Tailor Station – Used to make cloth apparel only one needed Huge!
  • Note: Not current accurate flooring.

Jewelry Room

  • Jewelcrafting Table – 2×2
  • Makes Jewels! I assume, not sure how many are needed typically but probably just one?
  • Gem Cutting Table – 2×2 – Unsure on that.
  • Cuts low quality gems into better ones, might need 2 of em.

  1. The library is actually the smallest room of all, certainly not “Large!”
    a 2×2 room is more than enough for a library. You can have a study, a research station and bookshelf and still some space to spare.

    The biggest room is probably the workshop, a lot of the machines are needed in large quantities, and they take up the most space.

  2. good idea but i think the guide would be better if you do pictures of the crafting stations and stuff or examples of layouts
