In Supergiant Games’ Hades, the gods of Olympus or Olympians are helping Zagreus in his quest to leave and escape the Underworld. By helping Zagreus, the Olympians believe he is fighting his way to leave the Underworld and be with them in Olympus. They do not know that Zagreus’ actual intention is not, and he wants to leave the Underworld to find and talk to his mother. Besides, without their aid, Zagreus would not be able to escape the Underworld.

Hades: Demeter Boon Guide

One of the Olympians that helps Zagreus in his Underworld escape attempts is Demeter. Demeter, the Goddess of Seasons, is also the goddess of agriculture, sacred law, and the cycle of life and death. In this guide, you will get to know Demeter’s boons that will help Zagreus in his Underworld escape attempts.

Zagreus gets help from the Olympians in the form of boons, which are upgrades that make him stronger. A boon can be obtained from completing chambers as a reward or by purchasing it from Charon’s Shop for 150 Obols. Boons, however, are effective only during the current escape attempt, after which they vanish once Zagreus has died and returned to the House of Hades.

Boons

Demeter’s Boons give Zagreus’ abilities the ability to inflict her Status Curse called Chill, which will slow down enemies and may shatter and spread the Status Curse to other enemies. Chill can be stacked and easy to maintain on enemies. The more Zagreus inflicts Chill on enemies, the more they slow down.

Demeter’s Boons also give off the game the 2nd highest raw percentage damage increase. Her other boons help Zagreus by boosting his other boons by increasing the rarity, helping him survive by healing, and, as mentioned, increasing his damage output.

Final Thoughts

As mentioned above, Demeter’s Boons offer the second-highest raw percentage damage increase among the gods that help Zagreus, so her boons would be great to have them. One of Demeter’s very powerful Boons is her Frost Strike, as it will boost Zagreus’ Attack damage while also inflicting the very useful Chill Status. Another is Demeter’s Frost Flourish which boosts Zagreus’ Special damage while inflicting Chill. This boon can be very useful for weapons that you would use Special a lot.

It is also important to note that accepting all of Demeter’s Boons at least once will complete one of the prophecies in the Fated List of Minor Prophecies called Goddess of Seasons, which will reward 150 Gemstones once completed.
