For Cathedral players this guide covers all the collectables in game like, Hearts, Bottles, Ouroboros Amulets, Swords, Armor, Armor Augmentations, Ammunition, Books
If you just can’t find your last collectible of any kind I hope that I can help you out!
I made this guide because I could not find some of the collectables during my first time through the game and wished for a reference guide.
Also keep in mind: Nothing is missable, you can just play through the game. Once you want to mop up previous areas you can use this guide as a reference if you got stuck somewhere.
A complete reference map with all collectables is in the making and will be added once its finished.
These are the maximum stats that are possible on your items:

You can aquire your first sword upgrade in the lower parts of Shade Forest.
After you fight the Gargoyle Miniboss you are awarded Tanzanite, the first sword upgrade.In Tinkerton you are tasked with a quest where you have to succeed in two trials. Right after getting that quest you can speak with the man in front of the shrine in Tinkerton. He hints you to light the dragon statues with your green flame. After opening the door to The Void and reading the book in there you are awarded the second sword upgrade, Jade.The 3 armor upgrades can be bought each in one of the three shops in Ivystone Ridge, Blue Haven and Tinkerton. You have to own the previous tier before you can buy the next one.
Three of them can be bought at the store of the villages (Ivystone Ridge, Blue Haven, Tinkerton).
You get another one for bringing at least 40 books to the librarian.
