Zeus is the god of the sky and thunder, and the ruler of the Olympian Gods. He offers boons to Zagreus which give his abilities chain lightning or lightning strikes.

Zeus boons excel at dealing damage to groups of enemies, as chain lightning effects bounce between enemies, and lightning strikes can hit multiple enemies.

His signature Status Curse is Jolted, which causes enemies to inflict damage to themselves when they attack, consuming the Curse.

Zeus is one of three Olympian gods (the other two being Artemis and Aphrodite) who will not appear in the very first run of a save.

Affinity[edit | edit source]

If given Nectar, Zeus will give you the Thunder Signet.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png '...The Master of the Heavens, god among gods; so much of my mortal life was impacted by him. And now, even in death, I serve his brother. I do not think that I have much to say for the Lord Zeus which is not widely known, already. Once, he overthrew the Titans, his own ancestors, to wrest control of all the heavens and the earth. He yet presides as ruler over all. Lord Hades bears no love for him, for reasons I can scarce begin to contemplate; it is as though Lord Hades chooses willingly not to consort with the Olympians.'


Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Zeus boons mostly revolve around two main effects. The first is chain-lightning. Chain-lightning effects will bounce between enemies, dealing damage to each enemy they bounce to. Additionally, Zeus also can grant lightning bolt effects, which cause a lightning bolt to strike an enemy, dealing damage in an area around it. These are both considered "lightning effects" and can be improved or amplified by other Zeus boons, such as Static Discharge, which adds the Jolted effect to all of your lightning effects.
