How to Siege in V Rising

The Siege Golem has more leverage over explosives due to its mega structure and ruthless moves or spells to critically damage the walls of the opponent’s base. First, start with weaker forts having impuissant aegis. Nevertheless, you will get to know how to siege tougher forts with due experience.
Building the siege golem in V Rising
As you know every ability in V Rising is unlocked by defeating the respective boss. Here you need to defeat Terah, the Geomancer, a level 48 boss that unlocks the recipe to construct the siege golem. For making the siege golem stone, you need:
- 200 stone bricks: break some stones and put them down on the ground, you will get those
- 200 gem dust: get some gems and break them to get gem dust
- 16 Scourgestones: you can get it as a drop from mobs in cemetery places like the Ancient villages or the Church of the Damned. Unless, you can craft it using whetstone, glass, and grave dust.
- 12 Greater Blood Essence: you can use the hearts to make it or you can defeat Tristin,
the Vampire Hunter and coagulate the small blood essence drops into larger ones using
Now once you get hold of these, you are ready to craft the stone. Get a Gem Cutting Table and craft the Golem stone. That’s all.
After you create the siege golem stone, choose your target to activate the golem (in other words, summon him). The place needed to be chosen wisely because after it is summoned it only stays alive for 300 seconds. The summoning takes 150 seconds. These points are vividly mentioned in the recipe for crafting golems.
Things you need to keep in mind while summoning:
When the summoning process is activated, it pings throughout the whole server and lets your enemies know that you are going to siege. Besides, the map will of course show where you are summoning the golem. The process can be intervened and the stone might get destroyed before summoning.
Who’s gonna do that? It can be by your server friends or might be your righteous contender. Whosoever it is, just buckles up for a fight to protect the golem. Once it is summoned it appears with a massive blackened body with red blood marks all over it. Only one player can take control over the golem.
