      Hestia sprint trivializes her

        From my experience the shotgun blast doesn't get absorbed by her sprint.

          After getting the first two statues, the jump from 16 fear to 32 is just too much. The enemy spawn + armor RNG is already really annoying (is there even any consistency when enemies spawn with armor at all?) and Tartarus in particular is a fricking clusterfrick. As fun as I'm having with the game, fear settings really remove a lot of fun once you go past 12-16 range and just becomes miserable to me.

          It works but sprint boons are buggy and sometimes don't apply their effects consistently. It's most noticeable with Hestia's vs. Eris because you take damage when it randomly stops working briefly but you can notice it with stuff like Apollo and Hera as well where enemies don't get debuffed as you run past them. I think it's because the sprint itself is fricking jank.

          Mediocre damage.
          Attacks do less damage than momus special spam, and there's no 2x homing hammer, and you can't spam because it starts burning through mana to do slightly more damage.
          Special does decent damage but doesn't stagger so it's easy to accidentally suicide while mindlessly spamming.

          The biggest issue is there doesn't seem to be any broken meta builds for the torches. Personally I think skulls are worse though, since they're both weak and janky to play.

          Glory Skull with Aphrodites on Special is some good shit. High risk/reward on higher fear.

            Yeah the jump from 8 to 16 Fear on the surface almost made me give up until I remembered that slowing time makes Eris a sitting duck. I won't say I'll never make the attempt because the Charon Axe is POWERFUL enough to effectively nullify health and blue armour enemy buffs, but I will say I think I'm tapping out on statue runs to just indulge in a little power fantasy by dogwalking Chronos and Eris for the rest of today.

                Going by Hades fight in the first game I can kinda believe it. Just give Chronos a Death Defy in second phase and you are done. It's already a fricking mess as is once the adds keep spawning below 50% unless you got the Hades boon for half the adds.

                Speaking of Death Defies it's messed up how the hardest part of Eris' fight once you adjust to her firing range is the fact that she is built-in invincibility phases to buff her own damage. Literally artificial difficulty to waste an omega attack or Hex on.

                I think Eris just has all her bullshit because she is the current last boss for the surface. Wouldn't be surprised if she gets taken down several pegs once the 3rd and 4th bosses get added. Her shotgun in particular once she has 2+ stacks of her buff is way overtuned and fricking awful to deal with without Hestia.

                Yeah, I think they just wanted to make it very clear that she's doing double damage while she's glowing, but the fight would be way smoother if they just zoomed, slowed, showed the "+100% DAMAGE" on the first fight with her, then just let the flight flow normally every attempt afterwards with no invuln

                My first win against Eris was with the fricking torches, since you can hug the pillar and omega special her. It trivializes both her dash volley and shotgun. The only real bad thing she can do is the snipe, which can destroy it, so you just dodge out.

                Nah, current Chronos isn't EM. He's not really THAT difficult, especially once you start upgrading the Arcana and make intelligent boon decisions, along with using weapon aspects well. Certainly gets a bit chaotic once he starts summoning hourglasses in the second half of phase 2, but he's really not unmanageable.
                EM Hades was a fricking nightmare even without other Heat modifiers. Current Chronos isn't even in the same zip code as that fight.

                Huh the more you know. The shotgun is still aids though for how easy it is for her to just 360 noscope spam it after dashing or flying. That Hestia completely trivializes her will never feel unfair for how annoying that shit is.

                I'm pretty sure none of Eris's attacks have snap aiming, at least once they start. Last time I dealt with her I hugged her and dashed through her to her back side every time she so much as sniffed in my direction and that kind of trivialized most of the attacks, barring ones where she begins right after a bombing run (which I guess is what you're complaining about, so fair point). Get away when she lobs grenades, and get back in there as soon as you can. If she's in burning oil or has her back to wall/the sea, get as far away as you can: I do believe all her shooting attacks (except maybe the sniper shot?) have a maximum range, and it's too long. But maybe I'm remembering bullshit.

                Honestly the hardest part of her fight is if your damage just isn't very good, because if you take too long, she summons shit. Having to deal with additional enemies AND her is just cruel. You can't go slow and steady with her, it's absolutely a DPS race.
                Honestly I wonder if it's Eris who's currently in her EM form. She has a LOT going on.

            >Main downside is if you don't keep track of how many boons you grab for each god, eventually you're left with just some gold.
            Fortunately that only happens if you hit a perfect multiple of 3, otherwise you'll see that you have only 1 or 2 boons offered and you know that's the last of them

            Congratulations!

            >Chronos sold so hard at the very end
            Lucky. In one of my 16 Fear runs Eris spent most of the fight as a sitting duck but right at the end decided to spam minion summons and got me with ping damage.

            My first win against Eris was with the fricking torches, since you can hug the pillar and omega special her. It trivializes both her dash volley and shotgun. The only real bad thing she can do is the snipe, which can destroy it, so you just dodge out.

            That's another thing about the Eris fight. It's probably meant as a crutch for players who want to melee Eris without sprint Boons or slowing time but right now if you get behind a pillar she just gets stuck and you can do whatever you want.

            Until she shoots a grenade launcher or blows up the pillar anyway, but the point is you can just play defence until you run to another one because she's hyper-aggressive when it comes to following you around

            If freaks looked this good people would mind them a lot less.

            Can't remember if I tried that trial, but boons in trials are generally not aligned with what you'd have in a normal run at whatever point in the run it sends you.
            For hestia, the scorch damage is capped at 40 dps which is quite low. Falls off really hard against late game mobs/bosses unless you have her other boon to explode the stack at 300.
            Decent build should do around 300-500 dps if not more.

          Heph is really strong but kind of needs finagling to make good and his venting mechanic makes leveling his eruption cooldown counterproductive. You either take venting and level his cooldown to be just enough that vent is guaranteed to go off first but put eruption on deck shortly after OR you just level his cooldown as low as possible and ignore vent entirely. Personally, I prefer the latter option and use keepsakes to game the system into an epic/heroic attack boon, then level it until the cooldown is 1 second (not sure if it can go lower because the poms either stop showing up or it just stops letting that one show up when I pick them up). Making vent reset if you hit the event with another eruption before it goes off is just silly.

        Skull is awkward as frick unless you use aspect of Medea because it's basically just Beowulf without the defense. Instead of loading your cast, you're loading your attack so give it something like Hephaestus or Aphrodite to make whatever you charge into explode.

        Hera fixes this but you're too busy jacking off the axe

        For some reason like a fricking idiot I assumed the Arachne dresses only counted their set armour before losing their effect. To everyone I ever told Hephaestus was useless to: I need to formally apologise. His armour boon actually DOES count for keeping whatever buff Arachne gives you, which potentially adds up to a lot of coins/health/magick.

        Sorry guys, I'm just too laser focused on muh big damage numbers.

        Remember when he throws the halo you have 3 viable options:

        Stand still and step forward slightly
        Run towards him
        Run diagonally away from the halo's motion

        The halo is tricky because it preys on your natural dodge instincts to go left or right diagonally; this is it's biggest strike zone. The halo tests your nerve to just walk forward slightly prepared to deal with Chronos preparing to charge you some other way.

        You also need to apologise for his damage.

          The special sucks. The omega special is just constant damage. With a good enough regan boon and plenty of MP, you can just spam it to the point where you pretty much always have a full ring around you and if you have shit like blitz or scorch, it turns into a lot of damage buildup. Plus, Zeus and Hestia both have additional boons that let you get even more out of their respective curses so the damage gets crazy. The only drawback, as others have mentioned, is that special doesn't stagger so you have to be careful about how close you're getting, though you can periodically throw out normal attacks to help if you've built up enough flames orbiting you.

        Rare based Ganker opinion.

        Apologies Aceepted. Here's hoping Hephaestus is not being hit with the nerf hammer, next patch.

        Amen to that. And what a coincidence, Heph showed up to drop a Special boon right before I finished my latest underworld run.

        Hera fixes this but you're too busy jacking off the axe
        [...]
        You also need to apologise for his damage.
        It's crazy how people seem to rush in a "x good y bad" corner instead of trying to make things work.

        That, I'm admittedly still on the fence about. It was harder to see the bright side of the things at the start of the game where if you don't reliably dish out big damage numbers, you and your run are fricking done before you get the resources needed to upgrade everything else so that you can actually upgrade weapons that aren't your main minmax combo.

        Now, having said that, again picrel. PIcked up his Special right before facing Chronos, and while it's hard to tell because the Apollo Cast nuke just smothers everything well...I did win.

    Also while I'm still ranting, it's VERY infuriating that only boons that deal direct damage seem to work on bosses. Yes, i understand why they don't want you to just oneshot Chronos by turning him into a sheep but-frick, have it do SOMETHING. Hades 1 had Aphrodite's Call hurt bosses at least. Meanwhile Demeter's boons aren't even allowed to slow him down when I distinctly remember they slowed bosses in 1.

            You can use ranged/cast spam on Eris, but it does require some pillar humping. Only her purple snipe shot can destroy the two pillars. I just LoS around them and then dash right behind her cause she doesn't turn fast. Even between reloads if you want to fight at ranged you can but it does rely on using the pillars

      If they're going to go similarly to the first game and just have two real romance options + one joke one, you'd figure it'd be Nemesis/Moros and Dora. (Though if things WERE that way, then they probably wouldn't do the poly romance thing again given that Nemesis and Moros are siblings.)

      Odysseus IMO has no chance of being an option given that at this point he seems to fill the same role as Achilles as the 'uncle/mentor' type character, plus the fact that he's been around Melinoe ever since she was a little kid would make it a bit weird.

          I've been using that every run as well. Occasionally you might miss something you wanted, but most of the time it's irrelevant and can even help with consistency a bit.
          Main downside is if you don't keep track of how many boons you grab for each god, eventually you're left with just some gold.

            Fortunately that only happens if you hit a perfect multiple of 3, otherwise you'll see that you have only 1 or 2 boons offered and you know that's the last of them

      It's a damage over time effect that does consistent DPS, stacking it just makes it last longer
      it's most useful for the arcana that lets you do +damage when an enemy has two "curse" effects on them, e.g. hestia cast + zeus strike will inflict scorch + blitz and you do lots of damage with lim+oros

      • 1 week ago
        Anonymous

        Every time you hit the enemy with a scorch effect, it adds scorch damage to it, which is shown as a number beneath its health bar. This number goes down at a fixed 40 damage per second, but can be built up infinitely. The yellow section on an enemy's health bar shows how much of their health the current amount of scorch will eventually drain, so an enemy whose health bar is entirely yellow will die to their scorch damage given time.

        thanks anons. the description that says 'accrued from 40' didnt make any sense to me

        Man but that's so boring. They already kind of did that with Biggie Smalls in the last one. So to do it again with the SAME voice actor no less is extremely disappointing.

      For some reason like a fricking idiot I assumed the Arachne dresses only counted their set armour before losing their effect. To everyone I ever told Hephaestus was useless to: I need to formally apologise. His armour boon actually DOES count for keeping whatever buff Arachne gives you, which potentially adds up to a lot of coins/health/magick.

      Sorry guys, I'm just too laser focused on muh big damage numbers.

      Remember when he throws the halo you have 3 viable options:

      Stand still and step forward slightly
      Run towards him
      Run diagonally away from the halo's motion

      The halo is tricky because it preys on your natural dodge instincts to go left or right diagonally; this is it's biggest strike zone. The halo tests your nerve to just walk forward slightly prepared to deal with Chronos preparing to charge you some other way.

    The incoming damage debuff you get in Oceanus is just something you have to deal with every run, huh? Fricked up to give it to you just in time to enter an area with homing enemy projectiles and zerg rushes, but effective in filtering me hard from getting any further for my first few runs. I'll eventually git gud enough to conquer it but I don't think the devs knew how hard a difficulty hike that debuff makes Oceanus as the game's true first level since the forest is the tutorial area.

      Same. I was expecting some kind of dark secret. And then it turns out no, Tisiphone is a strong independent differently abled woman according to Meg who just says MURDERER a lot, and Nyx took care of whatever dark secret allowed Zag to be born ages ago, and Zag's mom is perfectly fine and waiting literally just outside Hades' arena.

    • 1 week ago
      Anonymous

      Completely unrelated to Tisiphone, it's a shame that the story doesn't really allow for end-of-run messages to be as fun as all the ones in the first game. I loved all the silly ways the narrator (who I guess was Homer?) would think up for Zagreus to die on the surface, like just dying to the fricking common cold.
      Actually thinking on it, I'm wondering how they're going to make rerunning everything make sense once the plot's done. "Dissolution of Time" sounds like it means Chronos won't be able to reconstitute and will instead die permanently. So... How will that play into things? The first game's premise was able to continue with Zagreus taking on the job of basically being the "white hat hacker" for the Underworld's defense systems, but if Melinoe kills/imprisons/otherwise removes Chronos for good, then what? Will it have all been a dream? Orphic myth does say Melinoe is a goddess of nightmares.

      >By spending several essences from the trials of Chaos and lotus flowers, I can upgrade Frinos so that when he randomly jumps around he does 30 damage instead of 10
      I feel like he could have done a little stun, or something. Maybe when he hops he creates a little projectile-eating shockwave. I don't know why his little hop damage is even upgradeable, or why it costs the same as all the others for basically no return.

      Frinos as a familiar feels like a joke of some kind. The extra health is nice, but Toula actually does at least some damage when you upgrade her attacks, and fish are more useful to get than shades once you've maxed Grasp. The additional death defiance is pretty nice, too.

      It is funny and mildly helpful when Frinos absorbs every single one of Chronos' orbiting time balls, though.

      • 1 week ago
        Anonymous

        I will say this for Frinos: It is very gratifying to cuck Hecate out of her stupid little hex by just bouncing it off the frog, because otherwise I can't find a reliably way to dodge it.

        Which is really weird because I swear in my first ever, wildly unsuccessful run I DID dodge it somehow. I don't even remember how. I got lucky and started with the Apollo dodge, think I went back and forth vertically a lot and somehow it...misfired? Must have have proc'd Evasion.

        Reminder that if you failed to beat Hades 10 times in a row, he would just let you pass on your next time reaching him, so you could progress the story some.
        It's possible there will be something similar to that in Hades 2. So yeah, either we get to turn Chronos into a sheep, or he takes pity on you.

          Dodging the hex takes time to learn but you can simply dash through it. It might even be wiser to just take hit and dodge the shots because trying to dodge the hex might make you take damage from enemies' shots

I mean I just found out you can tell Charybdis' little homing scattering shots to frick off by popping them with the regular axe special. Just, make the little red bubbles fizzle out of existence instead of dodge bullets. More proof the axe is the strongest weapon in the game as if we really needed more, I suppose.

        In the first game at least you got to a point where he and Zagreus were just having good natured fights in order to 'test security' or whatever, but I kind of doubt at this point that Chronos will be made into a good guy given how spiteful he seems to be. Or how his boss fight could be continued unless they change locations (or as you say, re-frame the fight into some kind of nightmare/illusory format)

          Perhaps we just seal him into a permanent looped bubble in the throne room, having turned time back on itself around him, and you go down there each run to ensure he's still there.

            Maybe, though even thats quite harsh for a game like this. The first game managed to end things on such a "and then everything worked out and everyone got along in the end :)" sort of note, so it'd be a bit jarring to have Chronos just get the Diavolo treatment forever or something in this one.

            Though yeah, as I said, pulling a redemption on him at this point seems unlikely anyways, so who knows.

        I can imagine Chronos to basically be Golden Requiem'd into an infinite time loop as a solution to the fact you cannot kill him. So basically you can enter that time loop at will at which point it turns into a struggle of Chronos denial where you delve deeper into his character which ultimately learns to some kind of acceptance of him to the fate that has befallen him and him building a familiar bond to Melinoe over time at which point we're back to Zag/Hades style tests of strength sparring matches

          I dunno, it seems like an extremely downer ending compared to the first if you're looping to kill your grandfather while hes trapped in a nightmare dimension for the rest of time or something.

            Anonymous

            Ultimately the idea would be that his circumstances would turn into a chaos-like situation where this loop becomes his realm with Melinoe acting as a bridge but you aren't wrong that it's pretty grim nontheless

    I haven't bothered with the new game yet. What's the story in Hades 2?
    Something I found interesting in 1 was that I think the story was better when it was in early access. Being unable to reach the outside world meant the story could keep building up mysteries regarding Persephone while in 1.0 you could pretty quickly go from "must find what happened to mom" to "oh, there she is". I'm wondering if 2 has the same issue.

      > What's the story in Hades 2?
      Chronos, titan of time, comes back and traps Zagreus + basically all the characters from the house of Hades (sans Hypnos) in time prison while he takes over the underworld + launches an attack on Olympus and the gods.

      You play as Melinoe, Hades and Persephone's second child who was saved by a witch when the Chronos shit went down, and are tasked with killing Chronos and returning shit to normal.

      The game is still in early access and at this point the true ending/other major story beats aren't implemented yet.

          Yep, though at this point Chronos comes across as a LOT more antagonistic/overtly hostile towards Melinoe/the gods/the people of the House, while in the original Hades was just kinda doing his job + had other personal reasons to want to just keep Zag at home.

          If they are gonna pull another morality switch like they did with Hades, I can't really imagine how it'd work at this point.

            Chronos can come back even if killed, when you finally kick him out of hades you will probably be tasked with hunting him in his dreams or some shit so he can't come back this time. Not sure how's that gonna work for going up tho.

      I expect something connected with the twist regarding her parents. There's no way the baby pic depicts Melinoe and her parents. My vague callout is in full release you find the pool of memories after Chronos and find out you're Chronos and/or Nyx's kid.

          The ghost hand probably indicates some soul BS in between flashback and current time, and we have zero measure of time between them, Hades makes a point that time is acting weird, which I feel like means Melinoe doesn't even know how old she is.

            A conversation with Hecate at some point seems to indicate that the arm thing was actually due to a mishap with the cauldron.
            No other details are given, but I imagine the gist is that either the mishap fricked up her arm, or completely blew it off and has a magical spectral arm as a replacement.

    Yeah but the statues were supposed to be abstract representations the average layman could understand. Greeks also believed that the true form of the divine was imperceptible and something would go blind if they saw a god.

      The first game actually did this better though. The gods have European features but inhuman color schemes. They're various shades of white, grey, brown, and generally look like living stone rather than an HR assembly line. In Hades 2 they go out of their way to make Hermes look Asian and make sure that the gods are undeniably ethnic now just so shitlibs can gloat.

      The first game skirted the line between "modern audiences" and faithfulness to Greek mythology a lot more tactfully.

    much like the first game this one is rather good despite problems of in-run progression feeling a little weak, weapons feel a little underwhelming movelist wise. however. the enemy design is largely great, encounters are fun, the meta progression element is meaty and somewhat interesting, and the aesthetic and story package of the game is top notch.

        Would've been cool.

        To call Hades' art "woke" is wrong. Hades 2's art is extremely gay, but that doesn't mean it's "woke".

        >Woke:
        liberal with politically correct leftist tendencies, tolerant of any kind of deviation from behavior and standards, because he has been trained to believe that standards are oppressive and that deviation is redemption from the villainous society that his ancestors created to oppress homosexuals, women, homies, etc.

        >Hades art:

        No. No, it very much isn't. Hestia and Demeter add damage (and slow things down in Demeter's case) IMMEDIATELY. Poseidon knocks things back IMMEDIATELY. Zeus adds Blitz if you can meet his damage thresholds IMMEDIATELY.

        Hephaestus is unique in that upgrading his boons are the difference between waiting until a boss has thrashed you before you can ding it to death, or beating Chronos like he probably beat Hades as a boy.

          homie take special. 400 damage per 20s, each pom gives 2s cooldown, that's 10%, that's less than poms on %based damage boons (i.e Apollo etc.)

          Hep attack boons are great for the attack you are NOT pumping boons and poms into, because it is strong with no additional investment. for the attack you are spamming most of the game, you need a % boon, and you need your poms to go there.

          • 1 week ago

            How many poms are you putting on Apollo? Pretty sure he can't do like 400 on a special in 16s, let alone 20

            • 1 week ago
              Anonymous

              80%, and i think the first pom gives additional 20% for example. this is a 25% increase.

                Alright, I'll have to run the numbers some other run. But as a huge Apollo enjoyer, I'm almost certain the most reliable way to hit big numbers with his boon is with his delayed cast, not attack or special.

              • 1 week ago
                Anonymous

                big numbers and dps are not the same, as you obviously know. Hep boons are amazing because you just use the attack every n seconds for free damage on top of whatever else you're doing.

                if you absolutely must have huge numbers, idk what's best yet, but I suspect something with the hammer upgrade that makes staff special cost up to 50 mana, combined with crit, %damage boon, etc etc.

                the nice thing about hep boons is that you can get it to the point where you can trigger it, dodge attacks, trigger it, dodge attacks, repeat

    What are the best boons for a Cast build?

    My first thought would be a mix of Hephaestus (hit three times), Apollo (expand in size), Zeus (lightning on target), and maybe Hestia (aim the Cast like a projectile) but I'm open to better ideas.

      whatever cast related boons are offered to you, bro. you can't really control it, and you need to stack quite a few to make it genuinely good. also you can't spam your cast in this game.
