Lastly, there is the Wintry Rapier, which is an alright choice to start with. Wintry Rapier can perform well in the early game, but as soon as you start facing serious enemies, you might have to switch to a more deadly weapon with lethal capabilities. The weapon has the least damage and has a D grade in Motivity.

  • You’ll get the Wintry Rapier weapon if you choose the Dexterity path.
  • One beneficial feature of Wintry Rapier is that it is extremely light.
  • Players who prefer speed and swiftness over Attack Power can go for the Wintry Rapier,
  • The weapon is suitable for performing combo attacks and fighting multiple enemies.
  • Wintry Rapier can perform well against Puppets, but if you’re about to face a boss, it’s better to go for a weapon with higher DPS and Damage.

My Thoughts On Early-game Weapons

While I think Lies of P is a spectacular game, I’m not a fan of the early-game disparity, like how the early-game Technique weapons and much better than the early-game Motivity weapons. Personally, as a Technique build, I used the Greatsword of Fate Blade alongside the Wintry Rapier Handle, and it was such a sweet blend of damage and speed that I stuck with it until the final boss. Comparatively, the only potent Motivity weapon in the early-game phase is the Booster Glaive, which gets overshadowed relatively quickly.

I feel like the game intentionally wants you to pick the Technique class because of its early-game weapons, which is a shame because I can testify that Motivity Weapons have much better variety and potency overall. As such, I wouldn’t recommend switching to a Technique/Dex build just because of the early-game weapons since Motivity builds are rewarded with massively better late-game weapons.

That sums up the guide on the best early weapons. Each class comes with its unique strengths and weapon preferences, so choose a weapon that complements your desired build. Remember that getting the best weapons is all about customization and adaptation, so don’t be afraid to experiment and modify your character’s gear as you progress through your adventures.

Whether you’re slashing enemies with a Greatsword, giving electricity blows with a Coil, or busting heads with a Wrench, the Lies of P world is yours to conquer with the right weapon in hand.
