How to Upgrade Weapons in Lies of P

Weapon upgrades require Moonstones, and you need to talk to Eugenie in Hotel Krat to make use of this mechanic.

Where to Find Moonstones

Moonstones can be found as you explore areas in the campaign. Similar to other items, they can appear as blue orbs on the ground. Likewise, they can be purchased from Polendina, one of the puppet vendors in Hotel Krat. To increase Polendina’s shop wares, you’ll need to find Krat Supply Boxes. Here are some additional tidbits:

  • Normal weapons require Moonstones. These are the weapons that are looted normally in the game world or purchased from NPCs.
  • Special weapons require Covenant Moonstones. These are the weapons that are exchanged for boss items when talking to Alidoro
  • Moonstone types/tiers upgrade Lies of P weapons only up to certain thresholds (i.e. +3/5/9), and the cost increases per rank.

How Does the Weapon Upgrade Mechanic Work

To upgrade weapons in Lies of P, simply talk to Eugenie and select the option. You can then choose from various armaments in your inventory.

As mentioned earlier, Moonstones of a certain type can only upgrade weapons up to a particular level. For instance, I was able to upgrade my Coil Mjolnir, a regular weapon, up to +3 by using a Moonstone. However, when I boosted it past that point, I had to spend Crescent Moonstones. Then, from +7 to +9, I needed half Moonstones.

I suggest finding an equipment that you truly like to use before spending all your materials just to boost it further. In my experience, I started out prioritizing Motivity (i.e. Strength), only to realize that faster weapons that scale with Technique (i.e. Dexterity) were better due to bosses having ridiculous attack speeds and combo chains. As such, I eventually had to upgrade swords and daggers, even though I had spent several Moonstones on sledgehammers and other large armaments.
