Crowd control, crowd control, crowd control. That’s the story when it comes to Hades’s Bident. The spear itself gives you long range in in which you can deal damage, and the amount of damage available is nothing to sneeze at. For starts, the +15% Warrior Damage is tied for the large bonus to Warrior Damage of any spear in the game. Couple with that the +20% CRIT Damage an you have a weapon that is build for fighting your way out of tight spots. While these perks are great, what really makes this spear stand out is its unique perk, a +20% bonus to damage dealt by the Ring of Chaos attribute.
Ring of Chaos
One of the things that makes this weapon great is that it provides a bonus to a very useful ability, Ring of Chaos. Even without bonuses, Ring of Chaos is the best crowd control ability available. When activated, the ability fires off a shockwave that stuns and wounds the enemies within close vicinity to you. It is inherently powerful enough to kill weaker opponents and weaken bigger foes.
With Hades’s Bident, that ability gets boosted by a hefty +20%. Between the powerful stats and the beefed up Ring of Chaos ability, this weapon is one of our favorite crowd control weapons as well as one of the best spears in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
