How To Assemble The Best Weapons
You unlock the Weapon Assembly feature after defeating the second boss, the Stalker (which is more of a miniboss, really).
Once unlocked, head to a specific vendor named Eugenie, where you’ll find the ‘Assemble Weapons’ option. You can find her on Hotel Krat to the right of Sophia, in her small workshop.
When assembling a weapon, you’ll encounter various choices, each with its weapon type, attack type (slashing or stabbing), and attack abilities scaled by a specific handle.
It’s vital to match the attack type with the weapon handle for optimal results. For instance, a slashing weapon pairs well with a slashing handle, like the Rapier handle. If you mismatch, the damage gets reduced.
Now, let’s dive deeper into blade types. Although it doesn’t affect regular strike damage, blade type matters. There are three categories: Great Sword, Sword, and Blunt Weapon.
The difference lies in Stagger damage, influencing how fast an enemy’s Stagger bar fills up.
- Great Swords have higher range but lower Stagger damage.
- Swords offer a balanced range and Stagger.
- Blunt Weapons deliver lower range but faster Stagger buildup.
To summarize, here are four key considerations for assembling an effective weapon:
- Match the attack type (slashing or stabbing).
- Align the attack ability with your build (motivity scaling for a strength build, for example).
- Choose a blade type based on your preference for range or Stagger damage.
- Weigh the trade-off between range and Stagger damage.
And that’s how you assemble and make the best weapon in Lies of P. Were you able to make one? If you have questions or concerns, feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
