Lies of P: Stat Breakpoints (Characters Analyzing)

Analyzing the character stats to find the optimal values for each one aka “soft caps”



Pick Motivity or Technique and max it out ASAP, while sometimes dropping a few points into Vitality, Vigor, or Capacity as needed. (Haven’t tested Advance weapon scaling yet tho)

I created a character of each “class,” took each one up to the 1st boss and then used Cheat Engine to give me a million Ergo so I could examine what happens to each stat as you put as many points into each one as possible. I did this by hand entering all the changing values into a spreadsheet which you can access {HERE}[]

It looks like you are only able to put 10 points into any stat regardless of class which means your starting stats are not just the minimum they could ever be but also define their maximum (as starting+10) maybe further into the game you’ll be able to raise this hard cap but it doesn’t really matter for this initial analysis.

Physical / Fire / Electric / Acid DEF is mostly just tied to character level so putting a point in ANYTHING will see some gains tho Vigor appears to give half the benefit.


HP gains start decreasing right after 10 with a harder decrease after 12 and it is just diminishing returns from there on.

Guard is linear until 13 with only a minor dip at 14 and then diminishing returns from 15 on.

Recommendation: Everyone should take Vitality to 10, but probably not worth going further than 15 which gives classes with low initial Vitality an edge.


Stamina gains are only ever decreasing so even from 6, the more points you put in? The less benefit you get out.

Still, Stamina is a very useful thing to have so it might be worth it just to put a full 10 points in regardless… and a class which already started low will see more benefit from those 10 points than other classes would which could make the slow hitting “Path of Strength” best for Vigor investments.


Legion and Weight gains are almost perfectly linear for all values tested with a minor dip in Legion gains at 20 and improved minor Weight gains at 10, 14, and 19 (but literally just an extra 0.1 at those levels)

Recommendation: Take only as much as you need to not be Heavy; which is based on your equipment.

Motivity & Technique

Both stats have identical progression; it is only which weapons favor which which will determine how you invest your levels. Eg C/C weapon? Both will contribute equally. B/D weapon? Invest in the one which has the B scaling with your weapon.

Physical ATK gains are a little weird at the start, but they all INCREASE in value the more points you put in so – pick one and put ALL 10 points in based on which weapon you use… probably ASAP too

This means you will get the best results from whatever class can reach the highest possible value(s) with the main stat governing your main weapon. Motivity = Path of Strength, Technique = Path of Dexterity, BOTH = well… actually any class… if anything the Path of Balance is the worst of all worlds here since it makes you spend more levels in the lower scaling tiers for BOTH stats

The more levels spent on either stat BEFORE 12, the more levels that class is wasting


Legion gains are again mostly linear just with rounding errors which makes the following levels see an extra point of benefit: 8,10,12,15,17

Resistance gains start seeing diminishing returns as soon as lvl 8

I haven’t been able to test Weapon ATK scaling with this stat yet.
