Hades | How to Reunite Achilles and Patroclus
The warriors from Troy, Achilles and Patroclus, are divided by fate. Achilles, stuck in the House of Hades, misses his partner more than anything. As you start to get to Elysium, you will meet his friend Patroclus whenever you enter a “!” door. Patroclus is saddened by his stay in Elysium, and seems to miss his war partner a lot. If you want to complete Hades, you’re going to have to reunite Achilles and Patroclus. So, let’s get started!
How to Reunite Achilles and Patroclus in Hades
To reunite Achilles and Patroclus in Hades, you’re going to need to raise their Heart score with you to the lock. This will take six Nectar for each of them, or twelve Nectar total. Patroclus will start the conversation, and Achilles will continue it once the message has been sent. From there, you’ll need to talk to Nyx and Hades to get the information necessary to free Achilles from his shackles. If you have the Administrative Chamber open, you’ll be able to purchase Achilles’s freedom for five Diamonds, and the two warriors will be reunited at last.
Getting the two to start talking about meeting up requires you to first get Patroclus to six hearts, as well as getting Achilles to six hearts. He’ll talk about wanting to see Achilles again, and then you’ll need to talk to Achilles. This may take a few runs; Achilles might want to talk about a lot of different things before he talks about Patroclus.
Then, you’ll also need to get Nyx and Hades to talk about it. Once again, this may take quite a few runs if you have dialogue backed up. Be sure to talk to everyone each time you return home. Give it time, and eventually they will talk about Achilles’s file to help him out.
You’ll need to have access to the Administrative Chamber and five Diamonds if you want to free Achilles and reunite him with Patroclus. This is after spending 12 Nectar on building a relationship with both warriors. And your only reward is four Ambrosia! Hopefully you’re more pleased in allowing them too see each other once again. Otherwise, this is more of a long-term goal, so don’t worry about completing it right away.
