As you level up Pinocchio throughout your journey in Lies of P, you’ll find that you have a variety of skills that you can level up to increase your overall usefulness within this world. He may just be a puppet, but this boy can slay some demons. However, if you dump too many Levels into a particular category, you’ll find that you’ve hit a Soft Cap. In Lies of P, the highest level you can hit on an individual skill before it starts dropping significantly is Level 60.

A Soft Cap, in this instance, will drastically reduce the amount of skill points you receive for a particular option. If you put all of your points into Vitality, for example, you’ll normally receive anywhere from 3 to 5 additional HP added every time you level up, making it easy to tank hits. However, once you hit Level 60, you’ll likely only receive 1 extra HP each time you level up, making it almost useless to do so. Start putting your points in all of the different categories to make sure that Pinocchio is a well-rounded boy.
