How to obtain

Used to be obtainable from sitting on a shrine and clicking on a dark orb, but after that was removed you could obtain it by just clicking on the box at spawn but then it stopped working so now it's unobtainable

  • In the future, to make hollow knight more powerful you will need to obtain "charms"
  • Alu informed us the following about the things coming to "Knight"


  Howling Wraiths and Desolate Dive


  'Shade' variant of existing spells


  'Geo' obtained by killing enemies originating from Hollow Knight


  gain more Masks (health) from doing challenges around the map

  up to 9 (11 with charms) can be obtained


  40+ new Charms to collect

  each Charm can be used to add a passive ability to your knight

  charms can be bought from special shops using Geo or earned by killing players with certain specs/stands

  charms use Notches, a system of limiting them, and each charm has a different Notch Cost

  up to 11 Notches can be obtained

PS hollow knight has 2000 HP

don't remove it just because you don't know it exists, shade knight reskin is scarce because it takes beating the pantheon of hallownest and getting the embrace the void achievement in hollow knight (the game) also update no you can't really get it anymore since alu isn't really giving it out (probably because how little people play Hollow Knight in AUT)

ok now let me sleep

shade skin is real guys

heres some proof so you don't remove this again.
