Whare Are Upgrade Stones?

Used to Upgrade Weapons and Change Its Properties

As the name suggests, Upgrade Stones are primarily used to upgrade weapons. Upgrading a weapon causes its stats to rise and will get a + sign depending on what level it is. A weapon can also be upgraded with a different upgrade stone to change the weapon's specialty.

Obtained From Crystal Lizards

While there are enemies that drop certain upgrade stones, the rare ones you'll need are usually obtained from Crystal Lizards. These geckos are cowardly and elusive and have a limited spawn rate, so if one runs away you'll have to reenter the area for it to respawn. To learn how to hunt these Lizards, refer to our guide below.
