How to Heal in Hades 2

Make sure to heal yourself

Healing is essential in Hades 2, which you’ll quickly realize shortly after stepping into the Underworld. No matter how skilled you are as a player, you’ll likely take certain amounts of damage from the enemies. Healing will ensure that your runs are longer and that your progress towards the final goal turns into something concrete. Here’s how to heal in Hades 2.

All Healing Items in Hades 2

Like the first Hades game, there are several ways to recover your health in a particular run. Some of these are health items that can help you a lot in specific scenarios. There are other ways to heal yourself as well, without having to spend any resources. 

  • Fountains: Whenever you finish a dungeon successfully, you’ll find blue fountains containing a certain amount of liquid. Drinking from them will restore a significant amount of your lost health. 
  • Centaur’s Hearts: It’s nearly impossible to miss these heart-shaped objects that can be found at random spots. Consuming them will not only restore some of Melinoe’s lost HP, but they will also increase her maximum HP. 
  • Life Essence: These items can be bought from the Well of Charon in exchange for 25 gold. This well appears at random and only after you have unlocked the Rise of Stygian Wells incantation.
  • Snacks: You can find these items randomly at Charon’s wares. These items can be bought in exchange for gold and restore a part of your lost HP. 

How to Restore Health in Hades 2

Melinoe has a number of additional ways to improve her survivability even if there are no Hearts, items, or Fountains. 

  • Gifts of Moon: Some of the buffs you receive from Selene can heal a certain amount of lost health a certain number of times. 
  • Armors: You’ll encounter Arachne on certain occasions, who offers you to select dresses. Every dress has certain protection values, which absorb a significant chunk of damage done to you. 
  • Arcana Cards: Certain Arcana Cards increase your max HP and also heal a certain amount of damage as well. 
  • Narcissus’ Gifts: Some of the gifts you can obtain from Narcissus have healing abilities. 
  • Woodsy Lifespring: This incantation allows you to create a Glade in a dungeon, which can then be used to restore health. 

Remember to make the most of God Boons and Keepsakes in Hades 2 as well. Several offerings allow you to heal yourself and also enhance your health pool. As far as Keepsakes are concerned, make sure to strategically use your collected Nectar when choosing your gifts
