There are going to be plenty of trials and tribulations awaiting players in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, with a large world to explore and secrets to be found. In addition, combat is a huge component of the entire adventure, as there will be strong opposition standing against Sargon’s quest.
Learning how to parry, dodge, and stay out of harm’s way are all things that players should master as soon as possible, but when it comes to ending fights, having improved equipment will help make the combat encounters easier. Here’s everything to know about how to upgrade weapons to make your adventure easier in The Lost Crown.
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Could be the Perfect Opportunity for a Beloved Konami Franchise to Return
Prince of Persia is taking a different approach as it looms to re-enter the gaming space, which could spur Konami to bring Castlevania back.
Upgrading Weapons in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
Starting things off with just his trusty swords, Qay and Layla, Sargon will eventually get his hands on more weapons to round off his arsenal. However, the enemies will only get stronger with more progress in the main story of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, making the starting equipment more and more obsolete.
It is thus important for players to upgrade their weapons to meet the challenges ahead, and this applies not just to Sargon’s blades but also to the bow that players will obtain in the forest from Menolias.
Shortly after getting the bow, players will find a new location to visit back at the Haven. Moving to the left from the main tent with the mage will lead to a magical gateway; enter it to find Kaheva’s Forge. Speaking to the giant mystical being will add a new side quest for players to pursue, but more importantly, the ability to upgrade Sargon’s weapons.
Upgrading Qay and Layla will increase the damage the swords deal in combat, and the same applies to the Bow of Menolias and its alternate form of the Chakram. Upgrading Menolias’ Quiver will increase the maximum number of arrows that players can carry at any time. All of these upgrades require hefty investments of Time Crystals and, in the latter stages, will require either Xerxes’ coins or Azure Damascus Ingots, or both.
While defeating enemies will grant Time Crystals, the latter two collectibles often require exploring or are rewards for completing difficult combat encounters. With more power at his disposal, it will become easier for Sargon as he ventures deeper into Mount Qaf.
