Saving the city of Krat just became much easier
As you can see from the patch notes, this update has a magnitude balance changes which overall make the enemies of Lies of P less of an arduous task to overcome.
One balance change I'm personally glad this update is implementing is reworking the conditions of resetting your character's progression. In my Lies of P review, one of my few criticisms was amount of resources need to re-spec your character was way too expensive and time consuming.
It is pleasing to see that NEOWIZ is quickly addressing this issue by reducing the amount of resources needed to re-spec your character, as well as other issues people are having with the game.
So if you have been struggling to defeat some of the bosses in one of the best Xbox games of 2023, you may have an easier and more enjoyable time defeating them now.
