V Rising Stone Bricks are made by using a Grinder, a special construction that players can set up their Castle, and is supposed to be used as a means to destroy objects, or at least break them down into their constituent components. The Grinder can create Stone Bricks for you, which in turn can be used for building superior walls and constructions within your own castle – usually large-scale architecture. Stone Bricks will become a priority for you not long into the game, probably a little after making V Rising leather, but you’ll be using them for a long time after that. That’s why we’ll go into more detail below about how you can get Stone Bricks in V Rising, how to get a Grinder set up in your castle, and how you can also get Stone Dust in the process, another vital resource.
How to craft Stone Bricks and Stone Dust in V Rising
To get Stone Bricks and Stone Dust in V Rising, players need one specific tool – a Grinder. These things can be built in your Castle from the Refinement part of the Build menu, using specialised materials that you probably won’t have from the start – specifically these materials.
- Whetstones (4)
- Copper Ingots (4)
- Planks (8)

Obviously, not all of these are easily obtained. We’ve laid out how to easily get the first in our V Rising Whetstones guide here, but Copper Ingots will require a Furnace and the Planks will require the Sawmill – and all of these need to be powered by Blood Essence, of course.
Once it’s built, make sure that you have enough Blood Essence to keep it running, and select it with the F button when prompted. The Grinder has multiple “recipes” (things you can throw in to smash to bits), but the first one will be the option to place Rocks. For every 12 Rocks placed in the Grinder – and yes, you have to place them all at once – you can get back one Stone Brick and one pile of Stone Dust. Just make sure you have the V Rising Blood Essence to fuel it!
Both of these items are useful in their own ways. As outlined in the guide mentioned earlier, Stone Dust can be used to make Whetstones, while Stone Bricks can be used to create walls and floors for more reinforced structures and even ceilings to create life-preserving shadow in your own castle, though you’ll need some V Rising Iron to go with it.
