I've had a string of about five attempts now where I've got to Hades with full DDs, only for him to get me. It's getting a bit frustrating. I just can't seem to deal damage quickly enough. I just did a run with the shield's hidden aspect, which absolutely slayed everything, but Hades had got such a big health pool that I couldn't wear him down quickly enough.

that feels a lot like my experience on pc. On Xbox, I’ve just done seven clears in a row, ascending up from 2 to 9 heat during that time. Fully levelled up fists of Zagreus.

 

one of which was an astonishingly slow shield run, because I didn’t have any decent attack/special/cast (I think I had deflect everything on dash). And therefore had to eke out my call.

 

basically, and this doesn’t help at all - I know - redacted is just pattern recognition and ensuring that you either dodge or kill the skulls/wretches. I’m somewhat surprised how much happier I now am getting in close and personal to hit a few times, which always seemed like lunacy until this week.

 

but the shield is probably the most difficult weapon to use for that playstyle.

Cheers for this. As is always the case, after making the post above I beat him on my next attempt! I think I'm going to turn God mode on now, though - I've seen the credits and am more interested in doing the side stuff and unlocking the achievements, so I don't need the challenge as much any more.

 

Another question:

 

Is Chiron's

Spoiler

Loyalty card discount

 

permanent, or just for the run you get it on?

Balls. He's hard as nails, too. I don't know why anyone would take the risk.

Well I don't have god mode on and I've beaten him 3 times in a row now 😛. All depends on rng and the build. 

Last one I just reflected everything back at him and nailed him.

Saying that I still haven't had a single win with the bow. Goddamn bow.  Only weapon left now. 

 

See, the bow is by far my most successful weapon. There's a couple of aspects for it which completely wreck shop. It's interesting how different people's playstyles suit the different weapons.

Definitely still having issues with the achievements. 

 

Yeah, me too - some have loaded in but others, which I've definitely unlocked, haven't. I've got into the habit of closing the game and reloading it each day now.

Achievements always seem  to come through next day now. However  I'm sure I swatted Thanatos and definately purged 2 legendary boons, neither unlocked for me.

Yeah, I should have the one where I beat Than by 15 or more, and the one for beating T&M with Extreme Measures, but neither have popped. Today and yesterday, though, I unlocked the Loyalty Card one, as well as a couple of others, instantly, without any issues at all.

 

I'm going to push on with my current save to unlock as many more as I can and get the Epilogue, then start a new save to mop up the ones I would have got before if I'd started over from the beginning. I don't think any of them require a huge amount of skill; it's more just time investment, but seeing as this is extremely addictive, I'm not bothered about that, and I'm still unlocking stuff. I can't ever imagine having enough gems/diamonds to unlock all the cosmetic stuff or music, though. I've bought up all of the things which affect your runs already.

Amazingly, I managed to beat Hades with the Stygian blade and 0 death defiances. Build was overall a bit poo but I had Artemis’ call and a lovely boost to Call generation so loosed off Greater Call like 3 times in the fight. 
 

Shield is the only weapon I’ve not cleared the game with. I don’t know why but it didn’t occur to me to use it to block Tisiphone’s attacks at all. 🤦🏽‍♂️

Bah, I should have unlocked the achievement for using a god's Greater Call against them in a trial but it didn't pop. That's a kick in the balls.

 

I did manage to do the first

Spoiler

Skelly's trinket run, though, which requires you to have 8 heat. Also got the Champions of Elysium one, despite it being the third time I've beat T and M under extreme measures.

Question about Bouldy I do not wish to google in case of big(ger) spoilers.

Does handing it Nectar ever accomplish anything?

 

 

I was wondering this, too. I don't think it does. You're definitely better off giving it to Sisyphus in the first instance, anyway, as he needs

about six to start the sidequest that unlocks him as a companion.

 

I've found, in general, that you need a bucket load of nectar to complete all the achievement prophecies. Thankfully, you can convert your gems into keys and then 5 keys into nectar with the broker.

He gives you a boon which is extra damage or dodge. From what I've noticed anyway
