Gods to Gift Nectar First in Hades 2

There’s a wide variety of mythological beings that Melinoe encounters during her travels in Hades 2, and nearly all of them can be offered Nectar as a gift. In exchange, they’ll provide Melinoe with a valuable Keepsake that can be used (and leveled up) as a powerful accessory. These can easily turn the tide of battle in her favor, especially against Guardian bosses, so there are some you’ll want to acquire sooner than others.

Based on that, as well as the general order in which you encounter characters, below is our list of the gods and goddesses you should absolutely gift Nectar to first, and the Keepsakes they provide.

Side Note: Giving Hypnos Nectar is recommended but not a priority, as he apparently cannot be fully awakened in Early Access. We’ll have to wait and see if and when he provides a Keepsake or some other type of gift to Melinoe for her efforts.
