Quenching Acid is a Key Item in Mortal Shell. Quenching Acid can be used at the Workbench to increase the Weapon Strength, increasing its damage and can be found at many Locations listed below. Key Items can be used to progress through the main campaign or upgrade your equipment.


A rare acid used to enhance weapons. Fallgrim is a crumbling, remnant of a fledgling kingdom. Amongst the ruin, few weapons remain that aren't chipped and rusted. Yet by some miracle, this quenching acid restores them.

  • Quenching Acid can be used up to five times (+5) on each weapon on normal mode and up to ten times (+10) in New Game Plus . Subsequent playtroughs will allow players to upgrade weapons by +5 each cycle , to their max of +35 at NG+6

Quenching Acid Notes & Tips

  • Note that on NG+, Previously Acquired Weapon Upgrades are converted into Quenching Acid. This gives you an additional 8 Quenching Acids. Defeating the 3 Hadern Weapon Boss Fight in NG+ also gives you 3 more Quenching Acids. Adding the 8 New Buyable ones added to the Inventory of Sister Genessa and you get 19 More per playtrough on NG+.
  • If a player acquires the 11 Quenching Acids in their first playtrough, then acquires the (11+19 = 30) ones on NG+, they should have 41 Quenching Acids, enough to upgrade all four weapons to their +10 Max By the end of NG+, with one to spare.
  • With the addition of the Axatana in Virtous Cycle DLC, it will now require 10 more quenching acids to max all five weapons. As such player will have to reach NG+++ to max all weapons.
  • Also note that each NG+ cycle increases the max level of the weapons by +5, up to a maxium of +35, meaning with five weapons, it will require +25 new Quenching Acids per playtrough to keep it's full arsenal at max level...
  • This means a DLC player that has gotten the 11 Quenching Acids from NG and the 30 Quenching Acids from NG+ (41 total, 1 unspent) would require 10 supplementary Quenching Acids to upgrade his new Axatana to +10 , then another 25 to take all 5 weapons to +15 (the NG++ max level)... Even though a NG++ playtrough will only provide 30 (but you might have 1 to spare from previous difficulties). As such a player should be 4 short of maxing all weapons after NG++, thus requiring a NG+++ run to fully level everything...
