Notes Edit

  • In order to upgrade for the Fiend you must earn 50 Guild Seals by using evil expressions on NPCs that carry a seal above their head when holding down Right Trigger.
  • If you have children, you can move them to Hunter's Lodge (LCE only), Kill the nanny and stand near the entrance to the region as you kill the nannies.  This way you can easily unlock the Tenderise augment


  • The Tenderiser has the second highest base damage in the game, beaten only by Jack's Hammer.
  • Both the Tenderiser and Scythe's Warhammer have the second highest damage in the game when fully upgraded, both doing 150 damage once the "Tenderise" augment for the Tenderiser and the "Avenger" augment for Scythe's Warhammer have been completed.
