Hades Legendary Boons | List and Prerequisites

Legendary Boons

During a standard run of Hades, you might run into dozens of godly Boons. These are essential if you want to get out of Hades. However, if you’re lucky, you might win enough godly favor to get Legendary Boons. These rare commodities are not essential to have… but they’ll give you an advantage! If you notice a lot of rewards for the same god, then use this guide to help you choose some Legendaries!

All Legendary Boons in Hades

In Hades, to get a Legendary Boon, you must meet the gods’ prerequisites. These are boons of lower tiers that the god offers that you must have to get the Legendary, so grab them early. After you get the Legendary, feel free to sell the prerequisites if you need coin!

Legendary Boons aren’t too strong; Zeus’s is great, but the others are niche. Don’t sacrifice a run for a Legendary Boon, because most will only sort-of help. (This list was made for the 1.0 release. If Supergiant Games makes any more Legendary Boons, we will add them to the list!)
