Hollow Knight Guide

FacebooktwitterredditmailFacebooktwitterredditmail

Hollow Knight is an indie platformer which provides little aid to the player in figuring out where to go next. This can be either frustrating or enjoyable, depending on what style of games you like to play. If you don’t want the game spoiled for you, I highly recommend not using a guide. With that being said if you do decided to use one I put together a Hollow Knight guide to help people journey through this beautiful game. *This Guide is not a 100% completion guide.

    I dealt with Herrah first, but now I’m stuck in her area, once you beat her, how do you leave?

    Maybe I just haven’t noticed something obvious but I have no idea how to get to mantis village or even the entrance to city of tears from the fungal wastes, I’m stuck in an area with bouncy purple mushrooms and every walk through I’ve seen people have jumped really high on the but whenever I jump on them I don’t go high enough and can’t get from fungal wastes to the lower areas like city of tears, hopefully someone can help.

    • enricofairme says:

      When you jump onto the mushrooms, you need to down attack. This will send you bouncing higher than a simple normal jump. Hope that helps!

  3. Richard says:

    One quick correction: On page 14, you show dropping only down to the rectangular room with the centipedes, then immediately going left to the bench room. However, the first time you go to the area, that way is blocked – you can just go into the very edge of the room and you seem to be at a dead end. So instead you have to drop all the way to the spring, go left a big and climb back up to get to that bench. Once you get there you can go to the ‘blockage’ and a bit of floor will collapse, opening up the previously blocked passage.

    Page 7: For me, Cornifer is behind the black barrier in Fog Canyon, and not in the alcove in Fungal Wastes. How do I get to him?

    This was great! I tried to use it as little as possible for that “into the unknown” vibe, but it truly did help with the moments where I sat there thinking “Where the hell do I go now?”

    good guide it was helpful for me to get thru the game , but i gain access to the third mask before going to deep nest , and beat the final boss

    • enricofairme says:

      Glad it helped. The beauty of Hollow Knight is that there is flexibility in how you play. Thanks for reading.

  8. Ririsu says:

    If you see in the boss fight the left area with the wood, if you hit it 4-6 times you can escape to the other side,and come back around to fight the boss with VS(Vengeful spirit),and if you beat him to collect the chest come back quickly to see the mallet/ball at the end of his mace run away, i didn’t get to kill it but if anyone does please get back to me, this is my second run and i don’t wanna start a 3rd one, the only reason i’m doing it again is because i killed Marissa ;-;…. I realized how big of a mistake that was…. and thanks to whoever made this walk through, You helped so much, hope my VS tip helped

  9. edgar says:

    I ahve a problem in page 8, I used the key in other palce, so I don’t have key and I can’t access the Royal Waterways. What do?

  10. Mikuru says:

    You don’t actually need the Shade Cloak to reach Teacher’s Archives. There’s an alternate way in that only requires Isma’s Tear.

  11. Dirtyleaf says:

    utilize downward dive and spell charms and its a piece of cake

  12. Chao says:

    thx for your guide. but the room for crystal heart is so dark and I can barely see the surroundings, and fell off the abyss quite often. No other ways to light up the path?

  13. Joe says:

    You guys rock! This guide was SUPER handy and I ended up using it for most of my run, though I was at 61% complete with the game when I finished.
