Thanks (mate). So I’m guessing clicking the icon on the far left switches between the red and green variant of the perk? If so it’s entirely possible I have simply missed that.

Now I wish I did not pump a load of darkness (chortle) in to a few things I did not particularly want last night (as I thought I had rinsed everything). Looks like the battle has just begun.

You can spend a single cthonic key to respec (at the bottom of the mirror) - you get all of the darkness spent on the mirror back to redistribute. You'll probably want to do that!

Really?

As someone who typically dies on one of the bosses, i figure Death Defiance may be more suited to my needs. I can certainly give it a go though. It might help me on some of those trickypoisonsections near the end.

Yeah I guess your situation is a weird one as you've playing and bashed your head against most of the game already and can reliably get to the end. For anyone else stuck making progress I'd say go for SD over DD.

I'd still say give it a go and see how it suits you. Worst case you spend another key to get rid. Means you can play much less conservatively and really experiment with stuff.

Yep, i will absolutely give this a go.

I have just been quickly looking at post 1st clear unlock stuff and it looks like i am only just getting started. So it's not like i wont have plenty of opportunity to try the different loadouts i have (almost certianly) overlooked.

It also looks like the pact of punishment is not possible with god mode (i may be wrong on this, im trying not to spoil too much for myself), in which case i feel like weening myself back off of it now is the right thing to do!

I really had forgotten how amazing this game is :wub: .

Don't think that's the case, I play with god mode on, and have access to the pact of punishment stuff.

What do you use the purple for once the mirror is maxed out?

Ah cool. Thats good to know. Is there a "hell" mode? I seem to remember reading something about that and it not being compatible with God mode. Its all starting to mix in to one weird fever dream now tbh.

Hell mode is a modifier you select at the start of a new save file, that opens pact of punishment stuff up right from the start.

https://hades.gamepedia.com/Hell_Mode

One thing to be careful of when searching for information about this game is when it's from /what version it's referring to. I know when I was virtuous about some stuff nearer launch, a lot of links were to the sub reddit, where people were discussing the in development early access builds. That wiki linked above should be up to date though, and it's probably the best resource.

Trading for other currencies with the wretched broker, a couple of expensive purchases from the house contractor, and upgrading your rank.

Well, being able to respec has made a massive difference to my progress! As recommended above, Stubborn Defiance has made a big difference, especially when combined with health boost % when using it, which can also be stacked! So on my current run if I have less than half health at the end of a chamber I throw myself in lava etc so I can regenerate in a better state. It would be nice if there was a button to auto do this, but still, it’s proving very helpful.

Think I need a break from this now I've escaped (twice). I'm not that engaged with the story tbh and I'm finding the repetitive gameplay is starting to get a bit boring.

I'm trying to complete the list of prophecies but really I need to be able to see it in game to know what Boons to pick etc. Its beginning to feel like work now.
