Hollow Knight Guide
14. Kingdom’s Edge
To get to the third and final mask, we need to access Kingdom’s Edge and collect an ability here. As earlier, Kingdom’s Edge can be accessed by using the Tram. Regardless of which station you use, Kingdom’s Edge is the furthest right that the Tram can access. Use the Tram to get to Kingdom’s Edge and let the fun begin!
Get the Map
The Map for Kingdom’s Edge is located in the large middle room of this area. Cornifer is about halfway up in a little hidden room on the left wall. Buy the map and continue heading up and then right. Continue right until you need to go up, then grab the bench located above you.
Boss: Hornet #2
Leave the bench and head to the right. Keep going until you eventually run into Hornet. This triggers our second fight with Hornet. Hornet’s moveset does not change all that much from the first encounter. The only thing you need to watch out for is that she now has a second phase which involves summoning stationary spiked balls into the arena. Besides this, the fight is the same as the first encounter. Defeat Hornet and venture further right until you reach the shell.
Ability: King’s Brand
Inside the shell is the King’s Brand. This ability allows you to open gates that require you to be recognized as the new ruler. A gate like this is located in Ancient Basin and gives us access to The Abyss. Grab the brand, return to the Tram and take it to Ancient Basin.
