Types of gifts
There are four levels of rarity in Hades. Further ones are more and more powerful:
The rarity of the gift depends on the encountered enemy. The stronger the opponent you beat, the better chance you have of getting better items. The same goes for the store. The more expensive an upgrade is, the better it can be.
There are four types of gifts that you can get only after meeting certain requirements. Special requirements usually include removing the curse or acquiring certain gifts. Special gifts cannot be improved with Boons:
- Duo - require obtaining gifts from different gods. Only after that can they be offered by any God, and after they have been acquired, can a dialogue be initiated between the pair.;
- Legendary - require obtaining certain gifts from Gods. Finally, you can get the highest blessing available;
- Chaos - involves entering Chaos Gates and defeating the curse. Unlike other enhancements, Chaos gifts can be accepted more than once in a run, and the effects combine.
- Bouldy - after talking to Sisyphus, you go to Bouldy to give him Nectar. You will receive a special gift from him.
