Alpha wolf in V Rising: how to find and defeat

V Rising is a survival game where you have to kill unique bosses to advance. The first of these creatures is the Alpha Wolf, and while it’s certainly not as difficult as the later challenges of the game, it can be a nasty obstacle in your path if you encounter it unprepared.

In this guide, you will learn where to find Alpha Wolf, general combat tactics – such as his important moves – as well as what rewards you will receive after defeating him.

Where to find Alpha wolf

Despite being the easiest boss in V Rising, with a combat level of only 16, Alpha Wolf can be tricky to find. Once the Altar of Blood is crafted, it will be the first boss you can track down, with a red stream of blood periodically emanating from its current location. He usually roams the southern part of Farbane Forest, attacking all creatures and people he meets. It is because of these wanderings that it can be difficult to spot, because while most bosses simply remain in a small area, the Alpha Wolf loves to run around aimlessly around the area.

It can usually be found near the Southern Wolf Lair, but you can also find the Eastern Wolf Lair near the bandit lumberjack camp or even in an underground cave passage. The best way to find him is to follow the blood trail and hope he is busy fighting someone.

How to beat Alpha wolf

Alpha Wolf has only a few attacks, and with due care and level of equipment, the fight with him will be short and easy. His main attack is a fast frontal claw or bite that increases in frequency as health is depleted. Keep circling around him and attack from the rear or flank to dodge this ability. Alpha wolf howls and glows red when launching a bite and claw combo.

He will also make a quick forward lunge that will deal significant damage to you if you are poorly prepared. Again, the best strategy is to keep circling around it. Moving sideways will allow you to avoid getting hit by this ability and take advantage of his missed attacks. His lunge has a rather long animation, so you should have plenty of time to dodge.

Note: As with all bosses, make sure you fight them at night so you don’t get sunstroke.

When the alpha wolf loses a lot of health, he will howl and call for two small wolves to help him in battle. They act exactly like normal wolves and depending on your gear you can either focus on them or AoE them.

To destroy it, it is recommended to use a weapon with a spear. With decent range, fast attacks, and bonus damage against creatures, this weapon is great for dealing with the first boss.

Alpha Wolf Rewards

After defeating the Alpha wolf, hold the “F” key to extract its blood V. It only gives one drop – a vampire power in the form of a wolf, which can be obtained by holding the “Ctrl” key and hovering over the paw icon. Pressing “J” will allow you to customize the Vampire Power wheel.

This ability allows you to take on the form of a huge wolf and has a short animation. Once in wolf form, your movement speed is increased by 45%, but when you take damage or attack, your movement speed is reduced.

Although this form is not a combat ability, it is incredibly useful and you will use it extensively throughout the game. Until you find your first horse, this is by far the fastest way to get around as it can be used both indoors and outdoors. You’ll have to be careful not to take damage, but the initial animation is short enough that you can change back even during combat.
