V Rising Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier Location and Guide

Are you perhaps a fan of Donkey Kong games? Because, if you are, you are going to love the fight with the level 70 V Blood boss Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier in V Rising. This mercenary-turned-sommelier will give you a really fun but easy fight that you should be able to win in at least two to three tries. Even his location is extremely predictable if you consider his name and figure out the region where he is waiting for you. Here is the exact location where you can find the level 70 V Blood boss Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier in V Rising, and how to defeat him.

The location where you can find Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier in V Rising is the northern Brighthaven Vineyards, east of the Brighthaven Square. You can find the town of Brighthaven in the western part of the Silverlight Hills region.

There are two Brighthaven Vineyards in V Rising. The one where Baron du Bouchon is working is the one right in the middle of the Silverlight Hills. You can see the exact warehouse where the Baron is residing in the image above, shown with the purple arrow.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to reach his wine warehouse, as it is surrounded by patrolling guards. You won’t even be able to use the Human Form to get past them, as they will recognize you are a vampire from a mile away.

Once you get inside the building, there will be no more enemies hiding there besides the Baron. He will be standing at the end of the structure, behind a desk. He won’t become aggressive until you get to the other side of the table.

The battle with Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier in V Rising is very much right out of Donkey Kong. For the whole battle, you will only see a lot of barrels rolling around the warehouse, trying to hit you.

The Baron will have four attacks, ignoring the barrels that keep rolling around the room:

  • Pierce attack with his rapier that deals a lot of damage
  • Whirlwind/shield attack that he uses to protect himself and deal damage to players that try to melee him
  • Ground slam attack that he won’t use very often, which is used to make nearby players to retreat
  • Wine-throw attack that can deal a lot of damage that will hit you most of the time

The biggest problem out of the attacks that he uses are the pierce attack and the wine-throw attack. The pierce attack deals a lot of damage and can be very fast, as he will instantly hit you with it if you are nearby.

The wine throw will hit you very easily if you don’t dash. Luckily, you can tell he is going to use this attack since he charges the glass with some wine before throwing it.

Now, the real problem will be the barrels in this battle. Not only do they deal decent damage, but they also stun you when they hit, leaving you stuck on the ground.

The best way to defeat Baron du Bouchon the Sommelier in V Rising and his barrels is to either destroy the barrels before they reach you or dash through them. Since there are a lot of them, you will likely need a Dash spell that can be used multiple times.

Recommended Spells and Weapons

Though you could fight Bouchon the Sommelier using melee weapons, ranged weapons are the way to go. Since most of his dangerous attacks are close-range, your best bet would be to attack him from a distance. Keeping your distance will also allow you to concentrate more on the barrels than on him.

When it comes to spells, the Veil of Chaos is the best dash spell you can use for this battle. Since there are going to be a lot of barrels coming your way, in unpredictable waves, you will need to use your dash multiple times. This is why Veil of Chaos would be the best, as it allows you to recast it a second time.

The second spell that would make this battle incredibly easy is the Corrupted Skull spell. This projectile attack will deal decent damage to the Baron and also summon a skeleton to distract him.

Since he will be distracted, you will have more than enough time to hit him with your ranged attacks or get your bearing from all those barrels coming your way.
