Zeus Vengeful Mood Revenge effects can occur without you taking damage. This Duo boon requires at least one “revenge” effect from any god (ie. Zeus’ Heaven’s Vengeance, Aphrodite’s Wave of Despair, Athena’s Holy Shield, or Demeter’s Frozen Touch) Curse of Agony, Curse of Pain, or Curse of Vengeance Lightning Strike, Thunder Flourish, Thunder Dash, Electric Shot, Thunder Dash, or Heaven’s Vengeance

Ares’ boons are some of my favorites to use in my Hades runs simply because of the high DPS. Sadly, I’ve never found his Duo boon combinations with other Olympians to be too compelling. In a few cases, such as Demeter’s Freezing Vortex (seen below), I even felt that it greatly lowered the casting skill’s DPS.
