Weapon Combinations
To upgrade a weapon you must have both the weapon and have picked up a level of corresponding item. When the weapon is level 8 and you have the item it will be upgraded when you open a chest that drops when you kill a high level evemy.
Currently you can only evolve a weapon after the 10 minute mark, and the chest you open must also have dropped after the 10 minute mark.
  • Axe + Candelabrador -> Death Spiral
  • Cross + Clover -> Heaven Sword
  • Fire Wand + Spinach -> Hellfire
  • King Bible + Spellbinder -> Unholy Vespers
  • Knife + Bracer -> Thousand Edge
  • Magic Wand + Empty Tome -> Holy Wand
  • Whip + Hollow Heart -> Bloody Tear
  • Garlic + Pummarola -> Soul Eater
  • Santa water + Attractorb -> La Borra
  • Lighting Ring + Duplicator -> Thunder Loop
  • Song of Mana + Skull O'Maniac -> Mannajja
  • Pentagram + Crown -> Gorgeous Moon
  • Runetracer + Armor -> No Future
  • Peachone + Ebony wings (both at level 8) -> Vandalier
  • Phiera Der Tuphello + Eight The Sparrow + Tiragisu -> Phieraggi

Vandalier can then be upgraded to level 8. When Peachone and Ebony wings are combined you get a weapon slot back
Phieraggi will have extra rays for each level of Tiragisu you have including the extra levels the character Krochi gains

As of version 0.4 these are the only weapons that can be evolved

Some items will only appear when you unlock the related achievement:

Candelabra - Get Santa water to Level 4
Spellbinder - Get Runetracer to Level 7
Empty Tome - Hold 6 different weapons at once
Fire wand - Destroy 20 light sources
Clover - Find a clover
Cross - Find a rosary
Peachone - Survive 10 minutes with any character
Ebony Wings - Get Peachone to Level 7
Power up upgrades
You can buy Power ups with coins gathered during runs. At any point in time you can refund all coins and reallocate them to choose different power ups.

For every power up chosen the cost will go up for the next level and for every other different power up, this makes it that you have to be careful in the order of the upgrades to optimize your coins

Upgrade path on a single skill
Level 0 - base cost
Level 1 - base cost * 2.2
Level 2 - base cost * 3.6
Level 3 - base cost * 5.2
Level 4 - base cost * 7.0

For each level upgraded all other skills will increase the cost by 10% of their base cost * number of levels +1.
Example: Greed at level 2 -> 3 costs 720, if there are three other upgraded power ups then its cost to upgrade to level 3 is:
(200 * (number of levels + 1) * 0.1) * (number of levels in other power ups) + base cost * 3.6
= (200 * 3 * 0.1) * 3 + 720 = 900

This causes that to get better use out of your coins you should upgrade starting with the most expensive cost downwards since the 10% increase in cost is higher in power ups with higher base cost. Since there is no penalty to refunding you can try it for yourself

Does Duplicator's effect even work on Lightning Ring? (I'd love it if it did... Lightning's my fav Element...)

Thank you so much for this Guide! :)
