After you complete the Night’s Craftwork Incantation, you can then craft Gathering Tools in the Silver Pool at the Crossroads. This area can be found next to the Training Grounds, and it looks like a bunch of pentagrams on the ground.

Once you have created a Tool, the item will appear in the lower pentagram. You will need to manually switch out your Gathering Tool when you want to change it, as Melinoe can only carry one at at time. Simply walk up to the floating Tool in the Pentagram and interact with it to equip it.

To make gaining resources easier, do the Reagent Sensing Incantation. The Reagent Sensing Incantation will direct you to nearby resources on the map, letting you know where it is nearby.

The Reagent Sensing Incantation requires the following materials:

  • Moly x 1

As stated above, Moly can be found in Erebus. You’re also able to collect Moly without any tools. Because this Incantation is so easy to get, we recommend that you get this early on, shortly after getting the Night’s Craftwork Incantation.

How to Get The Tablet Of Peace in Hades 2

The Tablet of Peace lets you gain Psyche. It does this by compelling Lone Shades to the Crossroads. By doing this, you will trigger a minigame where you have to hit the right button at the right time four times. If you fail twice, the Shade will leave, and you won’t get any rewards.

Psyche is used for certain Incantations like the Divination of the Elements, which reveals the elemental affinities of boons; Necromantic Influcentc, which turns Lone Shadows against foes; and Shadow Extraction, which allows you to gain Shadows, which are used in powerful incantations, like the one that lets you access the Surface.

Creating a Tablet of Peace costs the following resources:

  • Psyche x 5
  • Silver x 5

You can also gain Psyche by buying it from the Wretched Broker, going through gates with the Psyche icon over them, or purchasing it from Charon’s shop. You can get Silver by mining it with the Crescent Pickaxe.
