Hades, Supergiant Games' newest success, and one of the best rogue-likes of recent memory allow players to test their abilities and proficiency with a wide variety of weapons, as they aid Zagreus in his fight to escape the Underworld.

With that in mind, each of the weapons available in the game has 4 variations or Aspects, which can be used to unleash different abilities and are subjected to different improvements and boons from the Gods of Olympus.

But, in the middle of this wide selection, one weapon shines as one of the games best. That's right, we are talking about the Aspect of Guan Yu, a variation of the Eternal Spear ''Varatha''.

We will now show you how to get the aspect of Guan Yu and show all that stand on your way the true power of the Divine Spear!

How to Unlock the Aspect of Guan Yu: A Step-by-Step Guide

First Step - The Fated List of Minor Prophecies

First of all, you'll need to buy The Fated List of Minor Prophecies, with can be acquired with the House Contractor in exchange for 20 gemstones pretty early in the game. The item is almost impossible to be missed, so rest assured.

Second Step - Reaching the Surface 

Now it gets a little more tricky. To be able to get the weapon you need to reach the surface at least once, with means beating Theseus and Artorius at the Eliseus Coliseum. Don't worry, just reaching the surface is enough, there's no need to beat the boss waiting for you there.  

Third Step - Time to Spend that Titan Blood 

After all that, you'll need to fight to get at least 5 ounces of Titian Blood and then expend it in 5 non-Zagreus aspects. You can get Titan Blood by beating the fury sisters and the game's final boss. You thought you could do it without beating him at least once, didn't you?  

Final Step - C'mon Achilles, Say The Dawn Line!

Believe me or not, this is the hardest one of all, since, after doing all that, you'll need to talk to Aquiles and hope that he will say to you the phase that will wake the aspect: "I see you through the eyes of the crimson phoenix", which can take a lot of time, especially since there is no guarantee that he will be on his normal spot every time you respawn following an attempt to escape the Underworld.  

  • You can speed up the process by sacrificing runs, but seriously, if you already started the run, is always best to see where you can go rather than give up on it for the dialogue.

Final Words

Now that you know how to get it, don't miss out on one of the game's most powerful weapons, capable of healing Zagreus as he attacks and slashes his enemies, all while doing massive damage. The weapon is also one of the requirements to unlock the other hidden aspects present in the game

You can play Hades right now on PC and on the Nintendo Switch.
