Hollow Knight Guide
ARE YOU READY FOR THE WORST PART OF HOLLOW KNIGHT? Okay with that out of my system, let’s head to Deepnest. Before we go to Deepnest, we need to get a light source. This light source can be purchased from Sly for 1800 Geos. If you don’t have 1800 Geo handy, either farm, or sell items to City of Tears trader. Head to Dirtmouth, buy the light and take the Stag to Queen’s Station. Follow the map above and break the wall in the second picture. Continue heading left and you will fall into Deepnest (Hell basically).
Getting the Map
The reason I had you go this way, is because we need a map. Deepnest is a labyrinth of tunnels and is very easy to get lost in. Having a map will help us navigate this area and makes things a million times easier. Dropping in from Fungal Wastes puts us right over the map maker which is… convenient. The map of Deepnest will set you back 38 Geo (not bad). With the map in hand, let’s make our way to the bench nearby. After you grabbed the bench, we will grab the Tram Pass.
Get the Tram Pass
From the Bench, head left through the failed tramway line, until you make it to the Ruined Tramway. Enter the broken Tram and grab the Tram Pass. This item allows us to use the Tram, which opens up movement between the lower areas (Deepnest/Ancient Basin/Kingdom’s Edge).
Break the Mask
The major reason we ventured into the hell hole which is Deepnest, is to destroy the mask found here. This mask is in the farthest left room on the map. To get there, follow the map above. When you finally make it to this area, you will enter a building with a bench inside. Sit at the map to trigger a cutscene. Essentially, the bench was a trap and you are taken into the Beast’s Den. Inside the Beast’s Den, the objective is to make your way up to the room with the lbug laying on the altar. Once you make it to this room, use your Dream Nail on the body, enter the dream and destroy the essence. Two masks down, one left to go.
After you break the mask, you will want to leave the area and head to the right. Here there is a Stagway Station to unlock. Do this. After you have the Stagway Station unlocked, it is time to make a decision. As we are headed to the Tram, we need to make our way to it. This can be done a few ways: 1. Backtrack through Deepnest, 2. Stagway to King’s Station and enter through Ancient Basin. Regardless of the choice you make, head to the Tram!
