While questing to escape the underworld in Hades, players will run into a myriad of colorful and entertaining characters. Every fan has their favorite, of course, and some of these characters even become romance options for our Prince of the Underworld, Zagreus. One of these romance options is Dusa, the hard-working gorgon cleaner of the House of Hades. Players have found, however, that these romance quests are not as easily understood or completed as in other games of this type. So, here is the best way to get Dusa to fall for Zagreus.
The first thing Hades players should keep in mind is that romancing characters takes a lot of nectar. So, it’s important to find and collect as much of it as possible. Nectar can be collected as a reward in dungeons, and bought/traded in the lounge. It’s also important to remember the house contractor as house renovations will play a role in Dusa’s story as well.
Starting the quest for Dusa’s heart is very simple. Hades players must simply gift her a bottle of nectar and, in return, she will give the Harpy Feather Duster to be used as an item in dungeons. Continuing this romance questline will require gifting Dusa five more bottles of nectar, and completing twelve renovations from the House of Hades contractor. Specifically, players should choose lounge flooring and lounge sanitation while also purchasing a rug. Since making the house look nice and presentable is Dusa’s job, she will appreciate this. Completing both of these things will allow the player to gift ambrosia and receive Dusa’s Companion Fidi item.
To complete this romance quest, players should gift Dusa ambrosia until they’ve reached max affinity. This will trigger a cutscene between Zagreus and Dusa in Zagreus’ bedroom. Following this conversation, players will be given the option to receive all of their ambrosia back without any negative consequences. This is great as the ambrosia can then be given to other characters. Hades continues to show a wonderful understanding of ancient Greek mythology by allowing players to romance more than one character without repercussions.
Hades has been a hit with all kinds of gaming fans. It has used its amazing art, glorious writing, and underlying themes to pull in fans from across the gaming community as well as redefine the roguelike genre. And, with its recent release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, it shows many signs of continuing its success.
Hades is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5.
