Hades 2: How to Get & Use Thalamus

Thalamus is a vital crafting resource in Hades 2 that needs collecting. If you are curious about how to get it, we have you covered.

The world of Hades 2 is filled with a plethora of materials to collect. Each one is very useful in crafting different things, but one of the most important to get is Thalamus. While it may seem like an elusive material, the process to get it is very straightforward once you have the Silver Spade. Below, we provide the details on how to get Thalamus and what its use is in Hades 2.

How to Get Thalamus in Hades 2

To get Thalamus in Hades 2, you must harvest 2 Origin Seeds from Chaos’ Realm by digging them up with a Silver Spade. Afterward, you must go to the Crossroad and plant the Origin Seeds in Flourishing Soil. The Origin Seeds take time to grow, so doing an Underworld run will pass the time; then come back, and you can harvest Thalamus from the planted seeds. While the process seems complicated, once you learn it, you can easily harvest a lot of Thalamus.

When in Chaos’ Realm, search for piles of dirt on the ground. You’ll need to dig up these with your Silver Spade Gathering Tool in order to get Origin Seeds. Furthermore, because you have to wait a little for the seeds to grow, complete runs in the meantime and search for other materials like Zodiac Sand.
