1. Hera’s Bow

The Hera’s Bow is an excellent tool for disengaging foes and protecting Zagreus. With the appropriate build, the Hera Aspect is a DPS powerhouse that can take you to victory. Although the Aspect of Rama build is excellent, this build makes greater use of the cast ability, which is underutilized. This build uses retained casts to inflict a great level of damage instantly. You may hold onto casts and then release them with your charged attack when using the Heart-Seeking Bow with the Aspect of Hera.

Based on Zagreus’ casting, this build was built. You may deliver the bow’s damage and the cast’s effect in the following shot by using Hera’s bow. Phalanx Shot may deflect strikes and deal more damage early on, allowing you to maintain your aggressiveness.

The cornerstone of this build is the Parting Shot duo boon, which gives your cast the same additional damage you receive while attacking an enemy from behind. Demeter’s Snow Burst will activate when you load your casts, which does area damage and causes Chill.

2. Glass Tank

Weapon:  Aegis

Ideal GodsPoseidon, Dionysus, Athena

This shield is one of the finest weapons in the entire game. It was the only weapon that provided an unequaled balance of offensive and defense. The shield remains useful even after being nerfed with the appropriate builds. Use The Aspect of Beowulf, the last unlocked shield aspect, for this build. You will take 10% more damage with this shield, so it might be risky, but the benefits are frequently more than enough to make up for it.

This build, like Hera’s Bow, emphasizes a powerful spell. You will frequently use the shield’s Dragon Rush ability to load your casts into the rush and go directly into danger.

3. Heart-Seeking Bow

Rama is the Heart-Seeking Bow’s Hidden Aspect and possesses tremendous attacking potential. Wearing Aspect of Hera, which enables you to put your Cast Shards in your Bow, is advised. With the Exit Wounds Boon from Artemis and a faster reload time provided by this Aspect, you can virtually always deliver triple-cast damage in addition to your normal attack damage. This speeds up if you have Hermes’ Quick Reload. While area-of-effect boons like Dionysus’ Trippy Shot let you target numerous foes at once.

Every monster in the Underworld becomes a piece of cake if you are fortunate enough to discover a Daedalus Hammer with an Explosive Shot or Triple Shot. It boosts the damage and quantity of projectiles thrown, respectively.

4. Lifesteal

AspectGuan Yu

Since the complete release of the game, the Guan Yu spear has been controversial among the Hades community. According to some players, the Guan Yu build is the best in Hades. While others claim it is one of the worst weapons. Guan Yu may be quite strong, but it has to be completely updated. This is due to the fact that at level 1, employing it reduces Zagreus’ overall life gain by 70%. The level cap only reduces this debuff to a pitiful 50%.

Despite these shortcomings, the weapon has several desirable characteristics. “Frost Fair Blade,” a special move set that Guan Yu delivers, gives the spear a fantastic spin attack version and modifies the special.

A second push of the special button recalls the spear, which is often launched with the special attack. On the other hand, Guan Yu pierces adversaries and detonates in midair, dealing much more harm. The spin attacks launch a vortex that can recirculate and restore 1 HP to Zagreus with each strike.

5. Shield of Chaos

Most gamers dislike the Shield of Chaos since it is one of Hades’ bulkier weapons. However, it is the most sensible option if you want to play conservatively. The Beowulf Aspect, which is similar to Hera in that you may load your Cast into your strikes, is the Shield of Chaos’s Hidden Aspect. Bull Rush is this build’s standard attack, allowing you to rush toward foes and inflict much damage. But Beowulf transforms this skill into the far more potent Dragon Rush.

There are several choices for boons in this situation, but if you can combine Poseidon knockback boons with Ares’ Doom buffs. You can deflect incoming blows while relying on continual Doom damage to gradually incapacitate your opponents. However, it is the quickest method to play. It is also unquestionably the safest because you may quickly Dragon Rush your way to safety if a mob overwhelms you.

6. Stygian Blade

Weapon Aegis
AspectPoseidon, Arthur

Ideal GodsZeus, Artemis, Poseidon

The first weapon you can use in Hades is the Stygian blade. However, two of its forms stand out well above the others. It is dependable, doing steady damage and giving you a fair bit of discretion over how you wish to attack your opponent.

The first is its Poseidon Aspect, which enables you to assault your opponents and force Cast shards from them. In particular, when combined, Exit Wounds from Artemis’ Boons delivers 100 damage for each dislodged shard. You can deal out an absurd amount of damage, and monsters, in particular, become much simpler to defeat.

However, the Aspect of Arthur gives you a powerful assault that boosts damage output inside a specific radius. It is the strongest kind of Stygian Blade. Combined with Zeus’s lightning-based Boons and Poseidon’s knockback ones and, if you’re lucky, their Sea Storm Duo Boon. Even Hades should be a frustratingly pointless competitor compared to your ability to cope with amazing zones of impact and environmental destruction.

7. The Spear Of 1000 Cuts

Unlike many other builds, this Hades build is not exactly categorized as meta. It is, however, a lot of fun to mess around with, much like many other builds.

In this build, Zagreus utilizes his father’s spear, the Apsect of Hades. By utilizing one sweep, you may increase his attack and special damage by 150% for the following 10 seconds. When dealing with monsters that often operate as strong barriers, this can be a game-ending move, especially if you manage to seize a god’s finest gift.

For each weapon, here are some of the finest builds in Hades. See what works for you by evaluating them and experimenting with them. Just keep in mind to select your boons according to your weapon. And focus on creating a cogent build as you move through this underworld. Different things work for different individuals.
