Lies of P update 22.214.171.124 has made the game a bit easier by adding a bunch of balance changes.
The update is now live across PC and console, and as the patch notes detail, it mainly addresses balance fixes for numerous boss fights, along with system tweaks to character progression reset, making it easier to respec.
Certain field monsters have had their health lowered and there’s now an increased chance for the player to break their stance with a larger staggerable window time.
In terms of the boss fights, Fallen Archbishop Andreus, King of Puppets, and Simon Manus, Arm of God have each had their health decreased. However, for King of Puppets, this only applies in the first phase of the fight.
Along with a lower HP for Simon Manus, Awakened God, the developer has also decreased his damage while also making it easier for the player to break his stance.
There are also some reward drop-rate adjustments. The update increases the drop rate of Moonstone-type items from monsters, along with Ergo items from certain monsters that appear after Lorenzini Arcade, but the drop rate for Star Fragments has been decreased. You can check out the full details of the patch below.
