In Lies of P, Upgrade Blade Materials aren’t just items you find at various locations; they’re game-changers. They’re the secret sauce to powering up everything from your Blades and Handles to your Special Weapons and the mighty Legion Arms. And for those looking to tweak their Legion Arms’ stats, there’s a special spot for you: the Saintess of Mercy Statue, nestled within the Grand Exhibition Gallery.
Finding these precious materials is an adventure of its own. Whether you’re exploring hidden corners of the game, clashing with formidable foes, or trading with the diverse merchants in Krat, these materials are within reach.
But there’s a magical twist: the Dimensional Butterflies. These radiant beings shimmer in a distinct pink hue, growing brighter as you near them. And if you’re ever in doubt, trust the Monad’s Lamp to guide you. It’ll radiate a deep red, signaling a butterfly’s presence. Overcome these creatures, and you’ll be rewarded with the coveted moonstones.
