How to Make Incantations in Hades 2

One of the most important things you can do to stay alive in Hades 2 is making as many incantations as possible. On your second run, you’ll gain access to the cauldron. The cauldron, located in front of Headmistress Hecate, is where you can craft Incantations. At first, you’ll only have access to three Incantations: Fated Intervention, Summoning of Mercantile Fortune, and Night’s Craftwork. The more Incantations you make, the more Incantations will become available.

I highly recommend crafting Night’s Craftwork as soon as possible, as it will allow you to get the ingredients necessary to complete the rest of the Incantations. I’ve listed the Incantations you’ll unlock in the order you’ll get them, along with their recipes and what you’ll obtain for completing them. Note that you may have to complete a run and return to the Crossroads for new Incantations to appear.

Moly can be obtained without any special tools. It’s a flower that can be found randomly through Erebus. Ash is a room reward, and once that’s often used to unlock Tarot Cards. Silver is a resource that can only be obtained by using a Night’s Craftwork pick.

Eventually, you’ll also want to complete the Fated List Tasks, as those will also become essential to completing some of the later Incantations. Now, let’s dive into all the incantations and how to make them in Hades 2.
