Hades - Complete Guide for Coronacht - Aspect of Chiron

Aspect of Chiron Guide



What is Aspect of Chiron?





Aspect of Chiron is a weapon aspect for Coronacht, the Heart-Seeking Bow.

"Your special automatically seeks the foe last struck by your attack."

As mentioned in the description of aspect, the last enemy got hit by your attack, powershot or not, doesnt matter, is marked for few seconds, when using your special, all arrows fired from your bow will follow and hit the marked enemy, its possible to use 3 specials back to back after marking an enemy before mark expires.

Why Aspect of Chiron is so good?

When its 1 level, this aspect actually isn't that good, but still I'd not call it "awful", maxing it just doubles the power of it since this aspect on first level fires 4 arrows while it fires 8 arrows at max level.

Each arrow deals its own damage and applies its own boon effect, so lets say for example, you have a critical strike boon offered by Artemis, each of the 8 arrows has a chance to critical strike, if you have hangover effect boon offered by Dionysus, each of the arrows will apply hangover, if you have chill effect boon offered by Demeter, each of the arrows will apply chill.

In regular chambers, its possible that you just burst down every enemy one by one; and in boss chambers, you just hit the boss once and use the special 2 or 3 times, and then repeat this process until boss is vanquished.

Mirror of Night Talents



For Aspect of Chiron, I suggest the following talents:



0% Fiery Presence

  • Never pick this, dealing extra damage to max HP enemies are not worth it since as soon as one of your specials arrow hit an enemy, this talent is rendered useless against that enemy.

100% Shadow Presence

  • This is way to go, you deal 1.5x more damage to enemies that you strike from behind, it also works for your special, try to get behind enemies if possible to put it to use.

100% Dark Regeneration

  • When you have this, you simply transfer 60% of darkness found to health, certainly more than you would gain with Chthonic one.

0% Chthonic Regeneration

  • I seriously don't know why would ever someone use that, its average of 30 health per underworld REGION, which is VERY low.

10% Stubborn Defiance

  • In high heat levels, this can be good, but if you're just playing casual wandering around, Death Defiance is often a lot better.

90% Death Defiance

  • In high heat levels Stubborn Defiance can be preferred to this, still Death Defiance is superior most of time.

20% Ruthless Reflex

  • If you are so confident with dodging an attack successfully then striking right after, use this.

80% Greater Reflex

  • Casual +1 dash, less complicated to use than Ruthless Reflex.

0% Abyssal Blood

  • Its not bad, its just not preferrable to Boiling Blood.

100% Boiling Blood

  • Great for agression, just throw your cast at an enemy and start striking.

50% Stygian Soul

  • I'm not going to compare that to Infernal Soul, they are both equal in my opinion, use whichever you desire to use.

50% Infernal Soul

  • As I already said, I'm not going to compare that to Stygian Soul either, they are both equal in my opinion, use whichever you desire to use.

70% Golden Touch

  • If you are investing money for later and don't use any obols in first two underworld regions, this is definetely way to go.

30% Deep Pockets

  • Not really any better than Golden Touch, if you don't want to make any investment and go right in to the first shop you run in to for early power, pick it I guess?

25% High Confidence

  • As its name already states, go with this if you're confident enough.

75% Thick Skin

  • Doubling your max health at the start of your run is something that you probably want to do.

60% Family Favorite

  • Again I can't certainly tell which one that you should pick, but since Artemis' build is most often the best build amongst Chiron builds, this is better compared to Privileged Status.

40% Privileged Status

  • Privileged Status only works if you have atleast 2 ways of inflicting status curses, for example if your attack weakens enemies (thanks to Aphrodite), and your special slows your enemies (Thanks to Demeter), then this talent is superior to Family Favorite, but since Artemis grants critical strikes which is not a status curse, Family Favorite is better to go for critical builds.

70% Dark Foresight

  • Important upgrades like Daedalus Hammer and Pom of Power is easily accessed with this.

30% Olympian Favor

  • Now this is good, but I personally like Dark Foresight more compared to this.

40% Gods' Legacy

  • I know words Legendary and Duo sounds good, but you more likely want more Epic boons than Legendary & Duo boons.

60% Gods' Pride

  • Having an Epic boon for your special instead of basic or rare is very important, furthermore if you get an Epic boon for your special, there is a chance you upgrade it to Heroic thanks to Eurydice.

65% Fated Persuasion

  • If you don't get a special upgrade boon offered in first encounter with a god that you'd like a boon from, just reroll.

35% Fated Authority

  • This is still good and can be preferred over Fated Persuasion, its just something up to you to choose.

Keepsakes





Always start run with the keepsake of god/goddess you want to build around.

After first encounter in Tartarus, Pom Blossom is definetely should be your use for rest of the run, if you don't have it yet, you can either continue with the keepsake you started the run with, or pickup a keepsake of a god/goddess that you want to combine with which you began with.
