      For 4 skill points youre probably better off using it for other, more useful skills instead. Because theres a lot of ways to farm better (balloons, demon bell, golden fan), and unlike those methods that 4 skill points youve spent is never going back.

      • Totally unnecessary especially in NG+ where you literally kill people with money. Meanwhile your first playthrough will be a grinding nightmare until endgame enemies show up. So if you want maxed out prosthetic weapons and rare items before end game for bosses make your choice, grind 9 skill points for hours or grind thousands of sen and rare materials for hours.

          I would VERY rarely get any pellets late in the game before choosing Most Virtuous Deed. Pellets became much more common again once I acquired it, which was useful since I had burned through the ones I'd stockpiled earlier in the game on a few late bosses. If you're having trouble finding pellets later on in the game, this skill alone seemed to do more for me than the possession balloon, demon bell, and first Virtuous Deed skill combined.

            Don't bother wasting skill points into this. I understand getting the first one for high monk, but you don't even need more than that. This is because over the course of the game you'll gather more than enough materials for all upgrades. Rare ones like grave wax and mercury can be purchased or reliably farmed in the endgame even without any drop rate buffs. In addition, you'll literally be swimming in money in the endgame and afterwards. I'm well into ng+ right now and I have almost 100k sen banked in money bags and nothing to spend it on. Losing thousands of sen will become a normal occurrence. That said you might as well pop those balloons right now since you'll never ever need them later

              I'm not getting any extra sen, I have both skills and I'm getting the same amount of sen from farming gun for as I was before. Anyone else having this issue?

                It looks like this and virtuous deed together improve sen by 40%. Not sure on the rate for items but I’ve been getting a lot more since picking both up

                  Anon1: Because it also says it improves drop rates in general, not just sen. But not by how much and if it stacks.
