Here is a quick and comprehensive guide to Hades’ Boons; their names, effects, numbers, and their respective gods!
General information and how to read the Guide.
Boons come in six Rarities: Common, Rare, Epic, Heroic are the main four we’ll worry about. Boons do not come with a set rarity, and thus will have four different sets of numbers. We’ll be denoting these four rarities like this throughout the guide: C: R: E: H:
The fifth rarity is called Legendary, which are modifiers available to a specific Boon on each God. These Boons will be outlined and bold faced at the bottom of every God’s page, like so.
Finally, the sixth rarity, Duo, are unique in that they will not appear unless you have specific Boons from two different Gods. Those will be included in their own section as opposed to Boons for the individual gods.
When reading a Boon, there are two things you can look out for:
1. You might see numbers in parenthesis. This denotes that the number is part of a multiplier as opposed to a flat damage number.
2. You might see an asterisk (*) before the name. This denotes there being something of note to do with the Boon, such as an interaction between itself and another Boon.
Now, onto the Boons!
