Leveling up is a crucial RPG element, and skill point allocation is standard. However, Lies of P draws heavily from previous Soulslike games and even gives the leveling-up mechanic its own spin. The result is a highly controversial mechanic that you either love or hate, but regardless of your feelings toward it, you’ll have to learn how to use it.

In Lies of P, leveling up requires two things: Ergo, the in-game currency, and Stargazers, a weird light-blue device. Ergo is earned by defeating enemies or even selling items. Yes, in essence, EXP and Money are one in this game. But to make matters easier for you, there are two types of Ergo:

  • Basic Ergo is obtained from regular enemies. Use it to enhance your character or purchase items.
  • Special Ergo is rarer and often obtained from boss battles, so it’s best saved for leveling up due to its scarcity.

Just like in other Soulslike games, if you perish, you drop your Ergo, and it’s only recoverable if you can return to the spot of your demise without meeting the same fate.
