  • You will get access to Stone as soon as you leave the crypt at the beginning of the game.
  • Stone Bricks will be the main building block for most of your castle structures, so keep up the production.

If you dream about building a grandiose gothic castle for your vampire in V Rising, you’re going to need Stone Bricks. Lots of them. Fortunately, stone is abundant in many areas, but be prepared to farm and grind a lot of it. Setting up a steady supply of Stone Bricks will help you build up a magnificent castle, decked with decorations and plenty of rooms to house your production. 

How to unlock and craft Stone Bricks

How to get Stone and build a Grinder

To make a Stone Brick, you will need to put 12 Stones into the Grinder. It takes 20 seconds to produce 1 Stone Brick from a single input. This process also creates one Stone Dust as well, which you can use in other recipes.

To get the Stones you need, you will first need to farm them. Head out into the world and look for stone nodes. Then, hit them with your Mace to farm up Stone. Next, you will need to unlock the Grinder to be able to turn Stones into Stone Bricks.

Fortunately, Grinder is an early unlock through a quest called “Fortify”. Completing this quest is easy and pretty straightforward. You have to place 3 Floors of any kind and build 3 Palisades. You should have the resources to do that already, but if not, head out and chop some wood and mine some stone. 

However, to build a Grinder, you will need to progress a little further in the questline. That is because you’ll need 8 Planks, 4 Copper Ingots, and 4 Whetstones to make one. To get some of those resources, you’ll need to complete the next quest “Shelter”.

How to make Stone Bricks

After building a Grinder, you’re ready to make Stone Bricks. Interact with it by pressing F when standing near it, then put a stack of Stone into the input box or right-click a stack in your inventory. For every 12 Stones in the stack, you will get 1 Stone Brick and 1 Stone Dust every 20 seconds.

Remember that you can optimize crafting in V Rising, and that works for Stone Bricks too. If you place a Grinder in a confined castle room, it will get a +25% speed bonus. Next, build a Workshop Floor in the same room for a -25% material cost discount.

✓ Pro tip

You will need a lot of Stone Bricks for your projects. To speed up the process, build multiple Grinders to save time.

That’s not all. Later in the game, after beating Domina the Blade Dancer, you will get access to Advanced Grinder. Optimizing it with room and floor requirements will net you a +250% speed increase. This means that you’ll be getting a Stone Brick every 5 seconds for only 9 Stones.
