    Relationship spoilers:
    Hades saying "Congratulations, boy." when Zag comes out of his room after knocking around with Meg is very awkward and funny.

    Can't do spear on 1 Heat, even. I just need the right synergy.

    Something has finally clicked for me in this game (probably that I've finally figured out how to deal with Theseus).

    I went from one clear in like 40 attempts to 3 clears in a row with different weapons.

    I had a super fun rail clear where I had homing 3 shot no reload artemis attacks, the artemis homing arrow on hit, and homing ares rift casts. I just ran away blindfiring and won.

    I put on Extreme Measures 3 for the first time on a 6-heat bow run and lmao @ upgraded Theseus
    luckily I had an extremely good shoot-and-scoot build with Hera aspect and Dionysus cast, plus Hades on attack, Aphrodite on dash, and their duo. So I could just chunk them for ~1000 and then dash around them while they take continuous doom damage. Ultimately only lost one DD and that was to Hydra.

    EM3 Theseus is wonderful. The conversations you get after reaching him are so much fun.

    I just started playing last week and I made it to the surface last night on run 11. The boss there made me real deal real quick (no Death's Defiance at that point) but I felt pretty good about it.

    I celebrated by starting another run in which I unlocked the last of my weapons (rail) and took it for a spin. Meet Demeter and her chill status for the first time and then proceeded to eat shit in Tartarus. This weapon is going to take some getting used to...

    Lucifer Rail with Poseidon boon on attack turns it into a hilarious super soaker. :)
    Fucked up that run when I picked up a duo Ares/Poseidon cast and just not being able to wrap my head around it, but it was pretty fun until then.

    Eh, I'll get around to it.

    I love how after beating the final boss a couple times their interaction starts becoming
    Hades: You want to talk you know where to go.
    Zagreus: Fine, I'll be up there to kick the shit out of you again soon.

    I've done probably 80 some runs and I just got a new miniboss in the 4th area?
    King Vermin??? This should be illegal

    I basically stopped running miniboss zones in Nyx once I realized you don't have to because of how many runs got ended by king vermin.

    Of course I realized today that I'm missing one miniboss for the fate and it's definitely in Nyx, so I guess I'll be running them again.

    Just beat ol' dad with Chiron Bow on 32 heat for the first time.

    Then I did a nice leisurely 10 heat with the gloves. Man, what a relief it is to come down from that high heat.

  • AbsurdPropositionAbsurdProposition Registered User regular
    For the people who have cleared 32 Heat, did you work your way up there one Heat at a time? And if not, what was the highest heat you did before going to 32?

    If he teleported I didn't notice. I was dashing across the pit, stabbing him and his entourage with the spear, dashing back across, more stabs, dash, etc. It never touched me.

    Nah, I didn't go through the prior 31 heat levels to get to 32. Highest I'd done was probably 20.

    I've noticed a glaring absence among the cast, one that I must assume has a plot reason because no way could they be left out by accident.
    Where is Apollo?

    By the way if there is a plot reason please don't actually tell me what it is, just that it is plot related.

    No it's a really weird omission

    He's one of four Olympians omitted - my hope is for an expansion or something that fills them in

    I believe there is a plotty reason
    Demeter makes a couple references to her keeping the cloud cover so thick that the sun can't reach the surface

    It also fits with how some of the others pop up
    Demeter only becomes aware of you after you make it to the surface and feel the winter - when you do see the sun, it's through Persephone's power over her garden, not Apollo, so I guess he never reaches you. He's mentioned in one of the descriptions of the improvements too I think so it's not like he doesn't exist.

    Technically she's talking about Helios there - while Apollo is also god of the sun (and that became increasingly his primary role as time went on), he's the god of medicine and music and archery as well.

    I don't think Supergiant has ever done expansions or DLC before, but they've never done a release like Hades to the best of my knowledge so who knows

    Hestia is @SilverWind 's favourite Olympian, and it would be cool to see her added to the game in some capacity in future

    There is at least one instance of her specifically calling Apollo a ding dong

    I think I jumped to 32 from 16? Which is the next statue level down. Before that, I was around 8-10. The main thing is I just stacked up a whole bunch of things that weren't taking more damage or losing healing, so it felt less like a difficulty spike and more like a whole pile of annoyances.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.
  • MadicanMadican No face Registered User regular
    Is there any reason to jump that high in Heat? Since incrementing one at a time is enough to open the blood/diamond/ambrosia rewards again.

    32 heat is just for fun and a cosmetic thing really.

    I've been making it a goal while unlocking the Epilogue to get a 32 heat win on all weapons. I won with my 4th weapon, the gun Exagryph, yesterday! Absolutely bonkers build with Secret Aspect.

    Alls left is Shield and Bow... my least favorite.

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    Aspect of Chaos with Ares on special and Aspect of Chiron with anything are absolutely busted, so you've got that going for you

    even without your call gauge maxed out it is still very funny to have them both shouting Darkness at each other

  • TheStigTheStig Registered User regular
    I wish I was playing on pc so I could record my like 20 second kill of bull/spear guy. Check this dumb build:

    Aphrodite's Aid Lvl3 for 7.5 second charm
    Smoldering air (god gauge capped at 1 but gains 1% every 0.2 seconds)
    Clouded Judgement (dealing /taking damage charges god gauge faster)
    Then the rest is just 4 dashes, zues lighting dash, and fists with Zeus lihhtning and jolted for hella gauge generation.

    Basically kept one of them charmed the whole time stacked on eachother while I luightning'd them both down.

    I am bad at this game after coming back.

    I find the whole poison mechanic to be unpleasant.

    My only issue with the poison is that I'm an idiot that never thinks to check where the poison pots are when I enter a room so when I get poisoned I immediately go into full panic mode and frantically search the screen for the cure despite the fact that I'm almost always standing right near one.
