There are many things that Lies Of P could use an improvement, but this is what we think should be done first.
When you play Lies Of P, you will find that there are a huge number of mechanics and methods that you can use. That includes your weapon, your Legion Arm, and you. While there are many things to think about, we’re here to help you relax by giving you a few good options for improving the old puppet!
Because Lies Of P doesn’t really have a single answer that works for everyone, we’ll try to give you a few choices. You are also welcome to ignore our advice and look into other choices. Many of the upgrades below, on the other hand, helped us a lot early in the game. We wish we had gotten some of these changes sooner.
Unlock The Falcon Eye Legion Arm
You might be asking, “Which of these Legion Arms should I get first?” Which one will give me the most strength?” Friends, we have to agree with you: all of the Legion Arms are pretty bad when they aren’t improved. The Puppet String is the only one that is really useful because it can be used to pull long enemies out of their groups. Besides that, the “Left Arm Of Steel” might be the best choice since it is the smallest.
Then why the Falcon Eye? It can still kill enemies above you that you wouldn’t be able to reach otherwise, even at the base level. The main reason, though, is that the Falcon Eye is one of the best Legion Arms in the game when fully improved. Getting it earlier means you can upgrade it faster. If you are using weapon blades that have a good block rate, this Legion Arm is the best choice.
To give you a quick idea of what each one does…
- Fulminis shocks enemies, but it only does a little harm and has a short range.
- Flamberg is the same as Fulminis, but instead of striking enemies, it bakes them.
- Pandamonium drops an acid puddle that will slowly eat away at enemies who are standing in it. They have to stay in that puddle for it to work, and it only works at close range.
- Dues Ex Machina drops Mines, which can help clear out enemies, but they don’t do as much damage as you might think, and it can be hard to figure out where to put them at first because they will only go off at certain times.
- Even though Aegis can stop attacks and lessen damage better than most weapons, it can’t Perfect Guard.
Unlock The Aegis Legion Arm
Wait, didn’t we just say that this arm is bad? Yes. We did, yes. You will have a pretty bad guard, though, if you want to use guns that move very quickly. That’s not good! So, once you spend three Legion Calibers on your Aegis and unlock it, you can use a much better guard. You will also have the choice to use a Perfect Guard with it.
After getting the Guard Parry upgrade, the Aegis Legion Arm is great for light builds because of all of these reasons. If you decide to go this way, you might also want to buy the “Legion Magazine Effect Enhance” skills from the P-Organ upgrade menu. You should spend money on Legion because it will be very important to your build.
It will be possible to have your Legion automatically charge from the P-Organ update system at some point, but not until the fifth phase. By that time, you will be pretty far into the game.
Upgrade The Falcon Eye Or The Puppet String First
As soon as Penalty Kick Online starts, you’ll be able to improve a Legion Arm. But which one should you buy first? The Puppet String and the Falcon Eye are two Legion Arms that are especially strong once they are fully leveled up. Most of the Legion Arms aren’t very useful until they are fully improved.
If you compare strength, a fully upgraded Puppet String is likely the best Legion Arm in Lies Of P. It will let you quickly close the gap between you and an enemy and land a deadly blow. But it’s easy to time this wrong and get hit by a boss. The Falcon Eye, on the other hand, is a quick, powerful projectile move that can be fully upgraded. In general, this makes it a lot easier to use well. Pick one of these and stick with it. You will end up with a bunch of bad Legion Arms that are only partially improved if you spread your points out. You want one really strong Legion Arm.
We’re not going to leave it out of this part, but if you want to use light weapons, the Aegis Legion Arm is what you should buy. That way, you can protect yourself.
You will need to be able to block hits without running out of health. That is a fact. Through the P-Organ improvement system, you will have many chances to lower the amount of stamina needed for certain actions. However, you will still need stamina to dodge and block. The Vigor is how you make that better. You might not pay attention to Vigor at first because you have a lot of energy.
But if you haven’t paid attention to Vigor, there will come a time when you can’t Perfect Guard certain patterns without having your guard broken. You will find that after a few attacks, you don’t have the energy to hit the boss with your weapon during that short window of weakened defense. This is what happens when you don’t boost your strength!
Enhance Guard Regain Recovery
You’re working on getting your first P-Organ, which should be Link Dodge. What should your first skill be? Well, there are a lot of good choices. For example, the “Increases Ergo upon eliminating an enemy 1” upgrade can help you get Ergo faster, and the “Increase Staggered Duration 1” upgrade can make it more likely that you will stun an enemy.
You can get both of those upgrades, but the Guard Regain system is the most important part of Lies of P, so that’s where you should start. Once you unlock this power, you will be able to get your health back much faster after blocking an enemy attack. When you get this, it will help you all the way through to the last boss of Lies Of P.
Craft A Weapon With A Good Damage Reduction Rate
If you block in Lies Of P, the damage you take will depend on the Damage Reduction Rate of your weapon. Because Perfect Guarding is such an important part of Lies Of P, this is very important. It will be very hard to even get all of your health back if you use a weapon for the guard that has a very low Damage Reduction Rate. Especially if you protect against more than one attack.
It’s fine to have a 50% decrease rate, but more is better. You can connect the Greatsword of Fate Blade to the Wintry Rapier’s Handle. It is an early Blade. This is a great early weapon because it hits far away, is pretty quick, and has a great 65% Damage Reduction Rate. That being said, the Handle you use will depend on which of your core stats you are focusing on.
To be honest, we can’t tell you which stat will help your build the most. You will need to be able to keep P under a certain weight limit, though, no matter what build you have, so they don’t move too slowly. The worst part is that each new piece of gear you get will make the old ones bigger. There are many great ways to keep your weight low, but at some point, you just need to buy something with a bigger capacity.
You might think that upgrading Capacity is less exciting, but if you do it, you can keep your best gear, use a huge sword, and still roll quickly. You shouldn’t stop improving other stats, but you should always keep a close eye on Capacity and make sure you don’t forget about it.
It’s a HARD one. You have three great options when you are working on your first P-Organ. You can get more Pulse Cells, make enemies stagger for longer, or get the Link Dodge skill. Even though all three are good options, we think the Link Dodge is the best.
Once you gain this ability, your dodge is just a lot stronger. When enemies are attacking with those huge swinging moves, it will be much easier to avoid getting hit because you can dodge a second time in the middle of your first dodge. Having this tool in your toolbox is without a doubt very helpful.
