In Lies of P, understanding the difference between motivation and technique could be the key to survival.
Lies of P is a dark retelling of Pinocchio that takes fans through the dangerous streets of Krat, a city full of puppets, the Black Rabbit Brotherhood, and monsters. Pinocchio’s mission begins with rescuing his creator Geppetto, but quickly turns into a journey full of choices as politics and violence appear around every corner.
To ensure you have the best chance against Krat’s long list of enemies, you’ll need to upgrade your weapons and change their grips to improve their motivation or technique. But what is the difference between the two statistics?
Although the names are a bit confusing, the difference between motivation and technique in Lies of P is pretty simple. Motivation is just another word for strength and technique simply means skill.
If you want to customize specific weapon grips, you’ll need to carefully spend your Ergo and Hidden Moonstones on the stats that work best for that particular weapon. Motive is better suited to heavy weapons, while Technique works well with light weapons. Think of motivation vs. technique as strength vs. speed.
Save Advance for weapons with magical properties. In addition to damage output, Advance also increases Legion.
Before players even think about upgrading their weapons in Lies of P, they must defeat the Parade Master. Afterwards you can visit Eugenie at the Hotel Krat. The NPC enables all weapon upgrades, including grip changes.
To successfully upgrade your weapons, first make sure you have enough Ergo and Hidden Moonstones for the changes you want. You can find hidden moonstones in chests and by eliminating red butterflies.
Defensive stats, influenced primarily by your equipment, are just as important as standard stats. Here is a list of all defense stats in Lies of P.
