Hades 2: How to Get Bath Salts & Lures

Impressing your companions in Hades 2 with fishing and the hot springs can make all the difference, but first, you’ll need Bath Salts and Lures.

Hades 2 is a sequel to the original masterpiece by Supergiant Games that really kicks things up a notch. There are various new mechanics, such as the need for materials to craft items. Furthermore, bonding with your companions is a big component of the roguelike, and fishing and relaxing in the hot springs help with that. However, to do so, players need to acquire Bath Salts and Lures. Fortunately, we have covered below how to obtain the items so you can build a relationship with your favorites and earn some resources.

How to Get Lures in Hades 2

To get Lures in Hades 2, players need to purchase them from the Ghost Trader. The Lures are unlocked for purchase by fixing the Fishing Pier at the Crossroads area. The process of restoring the Fishing Pier is very straightforward. Players must use the Rite of River Fording Incantation to restore the Fishing Pier. Below are the resources players need for the Incantation:

  • 4x Driftwood (Gathered by hand in the Rift of Thessaly area)
  • 2x Cattail (Grown from Cattail Seeds and Harvested; the seeds are obtained by using the Silver Spade and digging up mounds in Oceanus)

Once players acquire both resources and fix the Fishing Pier, they can fish. However, players must also note that they must craft a Fishing Rod by combining 1 Bronze and 1 Fate Fabric. Once you’ve done that, you can start fishing and harvest resources such as Bones by doing so. Of course, fishing primarily focuses on deepening your bond with various companions. However, only specific people, such as Dora, Odysseus, Nemesis, and Moros, will choose to fish with you. So be sure to have all of your equipment, like Lures, before attempting to fish.

How to Get Bath Salts in Hades 2

To obtain Bath Salts in Hades 2, players must purchase them from the Wretched Broker for 50 Bones. Bath Salts are an item that players can gift to companions as an invitation to join them in the Hot Springs at the Crossroads. There are two things to remember, though: players must have a good bond level with characters for the Bath Salts to be successful, and the Hot Springs must be unlocked. Players need to use the Rite of Vapor-Cleansing Incantation to unlock it. The Incantation requires the following resources:

  • 2x Moly (Gathered by hand throughout Erebus)
  • 2x Lotus (Gathered by hand throughout Oceanus)
  • 2x Nightshade (Harvested from grown Nightshade Seeds, which are found in digging spots in Erebus)

After getting the resources and completing the Incantation, players can invite their companions into the Hot Springs. Only certain companions will take part in the Hot Springs activity, though. This includes, Dora, Eris, Hecate, Moros, Nemesis, and Odysseus.
