While strictly speaking, you can sell or use your Rare Ergo immediately for a short-term gain, in the long run, you may be better off saving it. We’ve detailed your options below:

  • If you sell Rare Ergo, you will get 5000 Ergo to spend on anything from levels to consumables and more.
  • If you save Rare Ergo, you can use it to get rare weapons and amulets from Alidoro.

Alidoro is a dog-faced treasure hunter who can take the Rare Ergo you collect from significant boss encounters, and use it to create rare weapons and items that cannot be obtained any other way in the game.

When you first meet Alidoro in the St. Frangelico Cathedral Library, he’ll be seeking out a safe haven. While you could lie and send him to Venigni Works, your best bet is to send him to Hotel Krat, where he will remain.

Once you have sent him there, you will be able to use your Rare Ergo for an assortment of rare weapons and amulets… assuming you haven’t used them up already.

That’s everything you need to know about Rare Ergo in Lies of P. With this, you’ll be levelling up to your strongest potential, and beating bosses like the Scrapped Watchman in no time.
