How to Obtain Legendary Boons in Hades

Each God’s Legendary Boon has a prerequisite of lower-tier Boons. Basically, if you want the best version of a God’s ability, you’re going to need to stack it on top of the basic versions. You can expedite this process by using the Gods’ keepsakes to force particular ones to appear, as well as increasing the likelihood of rarer Boons appearing with Eurydice’s Refreshing Nectar and the Yarn of Ariadne from the Well of Charon.

Once you’ve got the right prerequisites filled, you’ll have a chance to receive a Legendary Boon the next time you accept a Boon from that particular God. The prerequisites for each Legendary Boon are as follows:

Aphrodite’s “Unhealthy Fixation”

  • One of the following: Passion Dash, Crush Shot, Heartbreak Strike, Heartbreak Flourish, or Passion Flare
