Myrtle in Hades 2 - Where to Find

Myrtle, a rare greenery resource in Hades 2, is an essential ingredient for crafting two crucial incantations: Reviving a Mournful Husk and Empath's Intuition. While in the early access version, you only need four Myrtles for these recipes, finding this elusive flower can be a frustrating task for many players.

Myrtle Location

The Mourning Fields, the third location you'll encounter during your journey, is the sole area where Myrtle can be found. However, its spawning is not guaranteed, so don't be surprised if you don't come across it immediately after exploring the region. Personally, I spent several runs scouring every nook and cranny of the Mourning Fields before finally spotting my first Myrtle. Fortunately, Myrtle's green and white hues stand out starkly against the brown and black backdrop of the Mourning Fields, making it easier to spot once you're in the right area. And unlike other resources, you don't need any special tools to collect Myrtle; you can pick it up as soon as you find it.

One of the challenges in locating Myrtle is the non-linear nature of the Mourning Fields, which can make it easy to get lost or miss areas where the flower might be hiding. To overcome this, I recommend using the Reagent Sensing Incantation, which reveals the locations of all gatherable resources on the map after you've cleared a room.

While the Reviving a Mournful Husk Incantation, which requires only one Myrtle, helps you navigate the Mourning Fields more efficiently, the real prize is the Empath's Intuition Incantation. This powerful spell allows you to track your relationship progress with various characters using The Book of Shadows, providing valuable insights into your romance options. However, crafting it requires three Myrtles, making searching for this elusive flower even more crucial.

In my experience, the scarcity of Myrtle adds an extra layer of challenge and excitement to the resource-gathering aspect of Hades 2. There's a profound sense of accomplishment in finally spotting this rare flower after hours of exploration, and the anticipation of crafting the coveted Empath's Intuition Incantation keeps you motivated to keep searching.

Conclusion

While the developers at Supergiant Games may introduce additional uses for Myrtle in future updates, its current role in unlocking key incantations is crucial for any player looking to delve deeper into the game's mechanics and narrative. So, keep your eyes peeled, and don't give up on your quest to find this elusive bloom – the rewards are well worth the effort.
