Dionysus’ unique curse status in Hades is: Hangover- For 4 seconds, victim takes damage every 0.5 damage. Remember: You only need one of the required boons from each god.

Low Tolerance

Your Hangover effects can stack even more times against Weak foes. Max stacks vs Weak: +3

This is a great duo boon as it mixes and enhances defense with damage.

Low Tolerance Aphrodite Dionysus Hades Duo Boon

Required Boons: Dionysus- Drunken Strike, Drunken Flourish, Drunken Dash, or Dionysus’ Aid

Aphrodite– Heartbreak Strike, Heartbreak Flourish, Crush Shot, or Passion Dash

Curse of Nausea

Your Hangover effects deal damage faster. Damage Rate: 0.5 seconds -> 0.35 seconds.

If Hangover is your main form of damage, this will help if you’re under a time limit.

Curse of Nausea Dionysus Ares Hades Duo Boon

Required Boons: Dionysus- Drunken Strike, Drunken Flourish, Drunken Dash, or Dionysus’ Aid

Ares– Curse of Agony, Curse of Pain, or Curse of Vengeance

Splitting Headache

Hangover-afflicted foes are more likely to take Critical damage. Bonus Critical Chance per Hangover Stack: +1.5%

Splitting Headache Dionysus Artemis Hades Duo Boon

Required Boons: Dionysus- Drunken Strike, Drunken Flourish, Drunken Dash, or Dionysus’ Aid

Artemis– Deadly Strike, Deadly Flourish, True Shot, or Artemis’ Aid

Calculated Risk

Your foes’ ranged-attack projectiles are slower. Foe Projectile Speed Reduction: +50%

The only other way to slow foes’ projectile speed is behind a locked Stygius form. Sometimes, projectiles absolutely flood the screen. At only half the speed, dodging, diving, and deflecting are even easier. In my opinion, this is Dionysus’ best boon.

Calculated Risk Dionysus Athena Hades Duo Boon

Required Boons– Dionysus- Drunken Strike, Drunken Flourish, Drunken Dash, or Dionysus’ Aid

Athena– Divine Strike, Divine Flourish, Divine Dash, or Athena’s Aid

Ice Wine

Your Cast blasts an area with freezing Festive Fog that inflicts Chill. Blast Damage: +30%

Festive Fog is a good ranged, AOE, lasting, form of crowd control. If you have Demeter boons, Ice Wine spreads even more Chill.

Ice Wine Duo Boon Demeter Dinoysus Hades

Required Boons: Dionysus- Trippy Shot

Demeter– Frost Strike, Frost Flourish, Mistral Dash, or Demeter’s Aid

Exclusive Access

Any Boons you find have superior effects. Minimum Boon Rarity: Epic

This is one of my favorites. Higher rarity simply means superior stats and abilities.

Required Boons: Dionysus- Drunken Strike, Drunken Flourish, Trippy Shot, Drunken Dash, or Dionysus’ Aid

Poseidon– Tempest Strike, Tempest Flourish, Flood Shot, Tidal Dash, or Poseidon’s Aid
