Lies of P offers a multitude of mechanics and various currencies, and Gold Coin fruit is one of them. As the whole Krat is suffering from an unknown petrification disease, gold coin fruit is the only thing that can stop it making it extremely valuable. This fruit grows on a unique Gold Coin tree that is hidden by the owners of Hotel Krat to have a complete monopoly over its uses.
In this guide, we will help you locate the golden tree and how you can farm gold coin fruit from it in Lies of P. We will also cover how you can farm this fruit fast in the game.
Lies of P Gold Coin Fruit location
The Golden Coin Fruit can only be collected from the golden tree which is present inside the inner sanctum of Hotel Krat. However, reaching this tree is not that easy. To start the gold coin fruit quest, you need to first find and meet an NPC, Giangio. He is available near a statue on the Path of Misery leading to St. Frangelico Cathedral. Once you talk to him, he will beg you to find golden coin fruit in Lies of P to help him recover from the disease.
Continue your journey through Malum District and defeat Eldest of Black Rabbit Brotherhood boss. This will grant you access to the inner sanctum of Hotel Krat through the backdoor. Giangio will appear once you use the lift to go up. He will request you to collect the gold coin fruit for him as he is unable to touch the tree. This is extremely important as it will progress another side quest in the game.
How to farm Gold Coin fruit from the Golden Coin tree
Before we start, there is a limit to the number of gold coin fruits you can obtain from golden coin tree in Lies of P. You can only get 8 after every 10 minutes of your last harvest. This timer is real-time and only works when you are actively running the game. Quitting the game also stops the timer. You can always check the time left by resting at any Stargazer in the game.
However, there is a way to accelerate the fruit growth on gold coin tree and collect it immediately. For this purpose, you need a special item Alchemical Booster. This item becomes available to purchase from Polendina for 2000 ergo once you give him the Sturdy Krat Supply box. This box is available near the last shortcut in Grand Exhibition Hall.
Just keep farming ergo near some stargazers and then fast travel back to Hotel Krat to gather some more fruit from the gold coin tree in Lies of P. The ergo you have farmed in the process can help you buy Alchemical Booster so it is a great golden coin farming loop.
