Lies Of P: Best Technique Build

Wondering what stats, weapons, and upgrades you’ll need for the perfect Technique build in Lies of P? We have all the info you need.

Eventually, the benefits of leveling will become smaller and smaller. But this isn’t explained in the game itself. To fully understand what a Soft Cap is and how to navigate the complexities of level-ups, we’ve comprised a few helpful definitions and a mighty table that will make visualizing your build so much easier.


What Are Soft Caps?

Soft Caps are the points during the progression of a stat where the benefits and bonuses you gain from increasing that stat begin to lessen or taper off. This means that the benefit you gain from moving a stat from Level 11 to Level 12 will not be the same as moving a stat from Level 45 to 46.

The returns you get as you increase levels will slowly diminish over time. Therefore, keeping track of where these Soft Caps are will help you determine where you wish to invest your level-up points and how you can optimize your current build.

Eventually, by placing enough points into a stat, a Soft Cap should become a Hard Cap, and in other souls and soulslike games, this would be the point where you receive no more bonuses.

However, in Lies of P, there is no set Hard Cap beyond having a maximum stat level. No stat can be increased past 100, but you can receive a small benefit up until that point.

Capacity is the only stat that does not appear to have a Soft Cap with a +3 to your Weight Load and Legion for each level up. Advance also does not have a normal Soft Cap for the Legion bar or your Defensive stats, though it does have a Soft Cap for outgoing damage.

What Are The Soft Cap Thresholds?

Each stat has roughly the same level thresholds, but the payoff for each stat will differ slightly. Some bonuses may be one or two levels off, as certain stats can have odd group intervals of three or eight instead of five or ten.

To make leveling more palatable to read and to better explain for those seeking to grasp Soft Caps, this table is simplified with a low-to-negligible margin of error.
