Hades: 6 Best Keepsakes Sure to Help You in Any Battle

In Hades, players are put in the shoes of the Prince of the Underworld, and the son of Hades, the God of the Dead, Zagreus, as he fights his way out of his father's domains and towards the surface, where he hopes to find the answers he seeks. As we can see, Zagreus's mission is not an easy one, as his father makes use of the legions of the Underworld, and its many champions to stop the Prince in his tracks and kill him as many times as needed. But even so, Zagreus is not alone in his quest, since he can count on the help of his family and many allies, which also features his distant relatives in Olympus, to reach the surface. That aid can come in many forms, by such as Keepsakes, boons, and different legendary weapons. With that said, we will now show you the 6 best keepsakes sure to help you in any battle in Hades!

Hades: 6 Best Keepsakes Sure to Help You in Any Battle

#1 Evergreen Acorn 

Best Keepsakes

The Evergreen Acorn is considered by many as the best Keepsake in the game, ideal for boss fights since it offers protection from the first 3, 4, or 5 strikes suffered by the Prince after the beginning of the encounter. 

The keepsake is given to Zagreus by Morpheus' muse and lover Eurydice, after gifting her with a bottle of Nectar. Eurydice can be found in Asphodel, in her room. 

#2 - Pierced Butterfly

One of the handiest and most beneficial keepsakes in the game, the Pierced Butterfly, given to Zagreus by Thanatos, offers a buff in overall damage every time you clear an encounter without suffering damage, going from +1% to 2% at max level. 

The downside of the keepsake is in the fact that unequipping it between levels will cause Zagreus to lose its buffs. 

To get the keepsake, you need to gift Thanatos with a bottle of Nectar after beating his challenge during your ascend to the surface. 

#3 - Old Spiked Collar

Given to Zagreus by the ''Best Boy in the Underworld'' Cerberus, the Old Spiked Collar keepsake is ideal for those that plan on wielding the Aspect of Guan Yu, since it offers a great boost in max health, from +25 to +50. 

To get the keepsake, you just need to give one bottle of Nectar to Cerberus at the house of Hades. 

#4 - Pom Blossom

Given to Zagreus by Persephone, the goddess of Spring, with whom he shares a deep connection, the Pom Blossom keepsake upgrades the level of one of your boons, randomly, for every 4/5/6 encounters cleared.

But not only that, as even if you remove the keepsake, your boons will not lose their gain.  

You can get the keepsake after unlocking the game's true ending and gifting Persephone with a bottle of Nectar. 

#5 - Myrmidon Bracer

Given to Zagreus by his friend and mentor Achilles, the Myrmidon Bracer keepsake offers a boost in survivability, by decreasing the damage received by frontal attacks by 20,25, 30%. 

Its downside is in the fact that it also increases the damage received by back attacks by 10%. 

You can get the keepsake by gifting Achilles with a bottle of Nectar on the house of Hades. 

#6 - Cosmic Egg

Given to Zagreus by the almighty entity known as Chaos, the cosmic Egg keepsake is ideal for those looking to focus on getting the boons offered by the embodiment of the primordial void without losing heath every time, since it offers the ability to enter his chamber without losing heath and increases the probability of his boons to be rare or better by 20, 30, or 40%. 

You can get the keepsake by gifting Chaos with a bottle of Nectar, before accepting one of his boons.
