Hades II: How To Increase Max Magick

What is Magick, Why Increase It, and More!

By nine_toes, Posted 29 May 2024

Magick in Hades II is the blue bar above your health bar that is used to perform Omega Attacks as well as activate Boon and Hex effects. Hades II without Magick will be one hell of a difficult game to play. Therefore, you have to use Magick to perform Omega Moves that deal increased damage to opponents.

To improve your runs in Hades II by increasing your Max Magick, a surefire way of increasing your damage output and utility as with a bigger pool to tap into, you can use your abilities more often. Here’s how you can do it!

A bigger pool of Magick can be useful when passive Magick gain is unavailable. Furthermore, you can acquire Boons that amplify your attacks in return for Magick. For example, Poseidon's Breaker Sprint costs 5 Magick for every hit and causes enemies to be knocked back when run into. Lastly, when you obtain a Hex from Selene, it is necessary to have a high Magick Bar since you need to deplete a certain quantity of Magick for its effects to occur.

Increase Max Magick Permanently

Unlock Arcana: The Titan

Hades 2 Magick Guide

The Alter of Ashes lets you unlock several arcana cards that buff your runs when you activate them by consuming grasp.

Once you have unlocked the arcana before it, you can spend 7 Ashes to acquire The Titan arcana. This permanently increases your Max Health and Magick by 20 for 2 Grasp. Its effect can be further increased by upgrading. You can do this after you have performed the Consecration of Ashes Incantation.

Increase Max Magick During Runs

Unlock Arcana: The Centaur

With 25 Ashes and 1 Cinder, you can unlock The Centaur Arcana. With this, you can increase your Max Health and Magick by 3 for every 5 locations you go through for 4 grasp. Once again, this effect can be increased by upgrading it. For the Awakening effect to take place, you must have cards of grasp 1 through 5 activated.

Acquire Soul Tonics

You gain Soul Tonics from clearing Encounters in Erebus and beyond or you can buy them from Charon. Your Magick capacity increases by 30 HP whenever you consume a Soul Tonic. Just like with Centaur Hearts, your Magick capacity will return to its base amount after you die, but this effect will stay active and stack until then.
