If you have been playing V Rising that you might have got the “your castle is decaying” prompt. If you do not know what this means or what to do about it then you need not worry. In this V Rising guide, we are going to go over what “your castle is decaying” means and what you need to do about it.
What Does Your Castle Is Decaying Mean In V Rising?
This means that your castle is being worn down over time. You will get the prompt near your minimap and the walls of your castle will glow red. When this happens, your castle will no longer be able to power structures such as the Blood Press. This also means that the castle is weak and might not be able to fend off enemy attacks.
If your castle is in a state of decay then other players can walk in and take your stuff and even delete your base. If you are on a PvP server then enemies can even kill you.
How To Stop Castle From Decaying
To stop the castle from decaying and preserve the integrity of the structure you need to provide the Castle Heart with Blood Essence. If you have some then you can interact with the Castle Heart in order to do just that. Drag and drop the Blood Essence into a Castle Heart slot.
You do not need a lot of you can use upgrades to power the castle for longer. We recommend upgrading the Castle Heart so that you can keep the castle powered for longer. This way you do not need to worry about losing your progress once you log onto the game the next day.
It is also worth mentioning that once the castle is powered, the lost durability is going to regenerate on its own. This can take a few in-game hours.
