Hades: How to Get & Use Diamonds


Hades: How to Get & Use Diamonds

Hades was in early access development for nearly two years, and the 1.0 release is finally out and it’s available on PC and the Nintendo Switch. Unlike Supergiant’s previous works, though, Hades is an action roguelite game. It does still have a heavy focus on story elements, and you’ll be able to glean more of the world’s lore and story as you get through your runs. Here’s how to get and use Diamonds in Hades.

How to Get Diamonds in Hades

Diamonds are one of the rarer currencies available in Hades and they’re used for unlocking higher tier upgrades with the House Contractor NPC. However, unlike Gemstones, these are a lot harder to come by, and you won’t be able to just get them by clearing chambers during your runs.

Listed below are all the ways we’ve discovered so far for getting Diamonds in Hades:

  • Completing Prophecies on the Fated List of Minor Prophecies.
  • Can be purchased from Charon’s shop for 1,000 gold.
  • Can be obtained by clearing Asphodel for the first time.
  • Can be farmed from the Lernaean Bone Hydra boss in Asphodel with the Pact of Punishment on higher heat levels.

The Pact of Punishment is an item unlocked later in the game, and allows you to increase the heat level of subsequent runs to make things harder. Each time you raise the level and beat the Bone Hydra in Asphodel, you’ll be rewarded with a Diamond, which is the best way to farm them.
