As you explore the world of V Rising, you’ll pick up tons of loot and increase your gear score. The problem, however, is that there’s nothing else that you can do with your old items unless you throw them away or hand them to servants. Thankfully, you’ll soon discover a means of getting back some resources. Here’s our V Rising guide to help you dismantle items to reacquire materials using The Devourer.
Note: We’ll have a V Rising guides and features hub soon, so stay tuned.
V Rising guide: How to dismantle items for materials using The Devourer
To build The Devourer and dismantle gear in V Rising, you’ll need to defeat a boss named Lidia the Chaos Archer. She can be tracked via the Blood Altar, but you do need to have 20 gear score or higher.
If she shows up on the list, go ahead and track her. You’ll find her patrolling along the path between the small Bear Territory and Bandit Camp areas in Farbane Woods. Both of these locations are southwest of Bandit Copper Mine which you’ve likely visited earlier.
Lidia the Chaos Archer is somewhat similar to Keely the Frost Archer. She’ll try to keep her distance while peppering you with shots. Here are her two notable abilities:
- Triple Shot – Fires three arrows in quick succession.
- Chaos Bolt – Circular outlines will appear on the ground. These will explode one after another.
The kicker is that her attacks will cause the Chaos Burn affliction that makes your health dwindle. Try to play it safe and use restorative abilities when you can.
Defeat Lidia the Chaos Archer and feed on her to acquire the Chaos Bolt ability and The Devourer Blueprint. You’ll find the latter in the build menu’s Production – Refinement tab, and it requires 12x Plank and 6x Copper Ingot.
Once constructed, just place any item that you no longer need inside it. After a few seconds, it’ll chew through your discarded equipment and return a portion of the raw materials that were used in crafting (i.e., Animal Hide, Stone, Lumber, and more).
Note: If you don’t want to dismantle your gear, you can get your controlled servants to equip them.
V Rising is available via Steam.
