Ambrosia is one of several Artifact currencies that can be earned within the Underworld. Along with Diamonds and Titan Blood, they are a resource obtained via bounties. It is primarily used as a special gift for those who have deepened bonds with Zagreus. Friends receiving their first Ambrosia from Zagreus will return the favor with a Companion.

Ambrosia can also be used to increase the effectiveness of a Companion, giving it more uses per escape attempt.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '... Mortals must regularly nourish themselves with food and drink merely to stave off death. The gods of Olympus have no such fear, and consume only for sake of tradition or revelry. They have access to all the splendors and delicacies the world has to offer, yet they favor one, in particular. And only very rarely does it make its way down here, into this realm. Ambrosia's savor simply cannot be described; so I am told. Some say its qualities adapt to the imbiber, tasting of whatever is the richest, most delicious substance their mind can imagine. Others say it gains its potency once transferred to another through a selfless act of giving.'

Obtaining Ambrosia[edit | edit source]

Ambrosia can be obtained by completing some prophecies from the Fated List of Minor Prophecies. It can also be obtained via trades with the Wretched Broker.

Ambrosia is primarily earned by beating Theseus and the Minotaur and collecting a Bounty for escaping Elysium. This means Zagreus must defeat Theseus and the Minotaur at a higher Heat level than previous victories using the Pact of Punishment.

Fishing in Chaos Gates is also a way of obtaining Ambrosia. Although it's very rare to catch a fish that rewards Ambrosia.
