Best Stats to Upgrade in Witchfire

Upgrade these if you want to live.

Witchfire gave me a hard time when I started my first playthrough. With each run, I began to improve, and a big part of my progression was upgrading my stats. However, some stats are worth more investment than others. Let's take a look at the stats in Witchfire and see which ones are the best to upgrade.

What Stats Should I Upgrade in Witchfire?

There are six types of stats in Witchfire, and after some experimenting, it's clear that some are better than others. Upgrading a stat is expensive, so you should be very careful about which ones you choose to improve. Overall, I'd suggest focusing on Luck, Metanoia, and Vitality/Endurance when you upgrade a stat. Here are the best stats in order:

  1. Luck (Drop Rates)
  2. Metanoia (Experience Gain Rate)
  3. Vitality (Max Health)
  4. Endurance (Max Stamina)
  5. Healing (Amount of health restored by Elixirs)
  6. Witchery (Spell Cooldown)

Luck and Metanoia are the best stats to focus on early in the game, as they both increase the returns you get on runs. Following that, Vitality and Endurance can be upgraded depending on whether you want more health or more stamina. Don't bother upgrading Healing, as Vitality is the better choice, and Witchery isn't terribly useful because you shoot more than you cast spells. Upgrading stats is better at lower levels, as you'll see diminishing returns later on.

What does Luck do in Witchfire?

Luck is a great stat in Witchfire, as it boosts drops by enemies. Drops from enemies can give you various items, such as ammo, elixirs, supply keys, and more. Witchfire is a challenging game, so improving your Luck will increase your odds of survival. It's unclear if Luck increases your chances of avoiding a curse from artifacts, but it's worth investing in this stat regardless.

What does Metanoia do in Witchfire?

Metanoia works similarly to Luck in Witchfire, but it increases the rate at which you gain experience/Witchfire. Increasing this is crucial early on, as you start off extremely weak. As you get more experience, you can upgrade your stats more frequently and become more powerful.
