All Incantations in Hades 2, Listed

Image of the Cauldron and Incantations in Hades 2.

Getting stronger and progressing further is the core mechanic in Hades 2, and luckily, Incantations can help immensely with this. After Melinoe’s first attempt in the Underworld, a Cauldron will appear at the Crossroads. Incantations will now be unlocked after reaching certain game progression markers, defeating a certain boss, reaching a specific area, etc. When new Incantations are unlocked, Melinoe can exchange resources at the cauldron to cast them.
